Armored Core V release date announced

Latest from Dark Souls developer out in March.

Mech battler Armored Core 5 launches in Europe on 23rd March for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, publisher Namco Bandai has announced.

Developed by Dark Souls studio From Software, it sees you pitting your fully customisable mech against opponents in massive team-based skirmishes.

There's full online multiplayer alongside a "robust" offline mode.

This time around, From Software has put added emphasis on strategy and utilising geography. A new Operator Mode gives one player a leadership role, letting them supply teammates with enemy positions and other tactical information.

"Gamers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Armored Core 5, which will bring strategic mech combat to new heights," commented From Software boss Eiichi Nakajima.

"With cooperative missions, a persistent online world battling for territories and epic team battles, Armored Core 5 is the complete action shooter package."
