Armored Core V walkthrough vid shows huge arenas, frantic action

I suspect this Armored Core V video is in Japanese because our feeble English-speaking minds can’t handle its awesomeness.

The action seen in Armored Core V is a far cry from the lumbering walking tank school of gameplay, focusing on agile, fast-paced shooting action. This is probably because the battlefields are enormous, so that even with five of you going at it you need a bit of speed to find your foes.

A little further in we get our first look at the series’s trademark customisation; you’ll be able to tweak every part of your mecha for improved performance, tactical advantage, and personal play style.

Also: it’s very dramatic. Armored Core V is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2012, courtesy of the illustrious From Software.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    Meh. I guess young teenagers find the robot stuff pretty cool though.

    @1 I’m not a teenager, well mentally I probably am because this looks great to me.

    I was hoping for lumbering, walking tanks tbh. I was a huge fan of Chromehounds. and this is looking way too fast for that kind of tactical gem. That said, the online bit, as always with FROM these days, is looking really intriguing and could well be enough to tempt me.
