For those who are unfamiliar, the Armored Core series features fast-paced mech action where players challenge various missions with customisable mechs. In Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon, players can freely move through massive environments with rapid maneuverability, all while experiencing mecha combat.
The story of Armored Core VI is as follows:
“A mysterious new substance was discovered on the remote planet, Rubicon 3. As an energy source, this substance was expected to dramatically advance humanity’s technological and communications capabilities. Instead, this substance caused a catastrophe that engulfed the planet and the surrounding stars in flames and storms, forming a Burning Star System.
Almost half a century later, the same substance resurfaced on Rubicon 3, a planet now contaminated and sealed off by the catastrophe.
Extra-terrestrial corporations and resistance groups fight over control of the substance. The player infiltrates Rubicon as an independent mercenary and finds themself in a struggle over the substance with the corporations and other factions.”
