The concept of the game is mayhem-like mecha action. Stages will be highly detailed and more complicated than ever before. From Software also plans on expanding the story with dramatic scenes. A big change is the size of the mechs. Past games went up to ten meters. Armored Core 5 scales them down to five meters.
Like Armored Core 4, Armored Core 5 will have online play. Look for it in Japan later this year.
