Armored Core: Verdict Day Has 56 Maps, World Resets Each Season

By Spencer . March 10, 2013 . 10:36pm


The world is still at war in Armored Core: Verdict Day. Just like Armored Core V, three factions battle for territory. War ends when one group dominates the other two or when the season ends. Armored Core: Verdict Day will have season resets that restarts each faction from square one.


FromSoftware says there will be a total of 56 maps in Armored Core: Verdict Day. If your mecha gets shot down you fly around the battlefield with a jetpack. New for Verdict Day is you can also take photos and be a makeshift battle historian. You can view saved screenshots in your garage. Screenshots can also be uploaded and some of them will be used for the game’s World News in-game updates.

    I skipped out on ACV, but I’m looking forward to this. It’s sounding good.

    Still stuck on the maps though. What always gets me in most games’ multiplayer is how few maps there are, with fighters usually being the worst offender in that regard. 56 is more than I could ever hope for, so I’m very happy about that. I mean, that’s a crazy number. Hopefully they’re varied.

  • Before anyone asks (again), this is a new game, not an expansion to Armored Core V, although it does share features and things with ACV.

    stop making Armored Core a multiplayer game! give me a beefy single player campaign!

    Having a cameraman and in-game news feed to document your battles is pretty cool. I remember I tried something like that with the ACV community by documenting the biggest battles like the rise to power of the Nine-breakers and the fall of dominating factions like green flamingo when an ingame resistance force was organized to bring them down.

    It was pretty experimental, I used a text to voice system to read the written reports and put it all against background music from the game all in one mp3 file. The AC community is pretty cool and others joined the project to improve it but it didn’t pan out to well. When there wasn’t so much activity on the servers it was tough to find a story so it died off. It was all good fun though.

    Maybe FROM noticed?

      That sounds really cool! Happen to have a link to a project thread or such?

        Its archived somewhere on the gfaqs ACV boards. I think it was called war reports or something. If I have time in the future, maybe I can polish the idea and make videos with pictures.

          Are you on ps3 or Xbox? (PS3 is my guess but dnt know if flamingo was on xbox too) anyways, sounds like a good project. With the factions returning there should be plenty events/battles to archive. Lol… if on ps3 you missed the chance to document the NA mutant AC. It may be back on V-Day and I’d be willing to join this project.

          • neogeno

            PS3. Mutant AC? Yeah I must have missed that one. It sounds interesting. When more information about Verdict Day leaks out, I’ll maybe make a topic on the PS3 Virdict Day Gfaqs boards about it.
