Invites for the upcoming closed online beta of Armored Core 5 have been sent out in Japan, according to DailyDL. The taster will offer players the chance to get to grips with stuff such as customise mechs, team play, story stuff and the chance to try out Mercury Mode, where one player becomes an operator and issues orders to other players in the game. The PS3 beta will first kick off between July 1-14, with the 360 beta between July 18-August 1.

The From Software mech actioner launches in October in Japan and 2012 in the west from Namco Bandai for PS3 and 360. Thanks, D’Toid.
