Armored Core 6 will include battles against giant bosses characteristic of the software

From Software does not plan to make a sci-fi Soulsborne with Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubiconbut you can expect the studio to include its signature boss fights in the game when it arrives in 2023. According to director Masaru Yamamura, who served as project lead on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the boss battles will be challenging and will require players to Play around with your mechs before challenging a massive armored core on the battlefield.

“The boss battles are the highlight of the game in this title,” Yamamura told IGN. “Of course, the essence of the battles is provided, in which the player reads the movements of the enemy and then plays with them, as is typical of From Software. In this title, both the enemy and your own machine are aggressive and violent in their attacks.”
