Armored Core 5
Armored Core V Stomping Into North America and Europe in 2012

There's nothing quite like Armored Core's mechs. They're proper big lumps of steel that you can customise and build to your own specifications, with the limbs, torso, head and weapons of your choice. Do you construct a fearsome battle mech with tank tracks and rocket launchers for arms or do you go for something a bit swifter and more conservative, with legs, a jetpack and machine guns?

Armored Core V is hoping to revolutionise the series with more content, an entirely "new atmosphere" and a deep, robust online mode designed to focus upon large-scale team battles. While the scale of battles will be bigger, the mechs will actually be smaller this time around, shifting the gameplay to centre more on tactics and using the lie of the land, rather than simply standing toe-to-toe and hammering one another into oblivion.

Slated for release sometime in 2012, Armored Core V is to be published by Namco Bandai in Europe and North America as part of the publisher's newly-forged partnership with From Software, the dev team also hard at work on Dark Souls for 2011. Check out all 27 Armored Core V screens in the gallery and the announcement trailer. Clang!

wow that looks great.. except i must say the online cheevs for Armoed Core: For Answer are some of the hardest achievements out there to get, i hope they don't do something similiar with this game. Both Armored Core games had crappy cheevs come to think of it. Let's hope they can improve on that aspect as well as others.

2012? Could you wait a bit longer, please?

Well I guess that's for the better, cause this year is already packed full of big ticket releases.

For Answer was nice, but the single player was a bit off a let down. But it sounds like that wil not be an issue this time :D

Since Namco Bandai is involved, I wonder is there any chance of a Gundam cameo or over-powered Gundam parts/weapons lol.

Awesome! Can't wait for this, ever since they announced it over 1 year ago. Too bad it's still gonna be a long wait for this, EU and US for 2012.

Wow, the mechs being smaller this time around isn't a lie. Those would barely come up to the knee joint of the old ones.

Wait, tanks with moving tracks? That can boost sideways? Time to make a Landmaster.
