A new snippet of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon surfaced online. A Reddit user who claims to have pre-installed the game on Xbox shared an image of an alleged screensaver from the game’s console app. Apparently, many other users have found the same key art using the same “pre-install trick.” [Thanks, Eliwats17 on Reddit!]

Check out the Reddit post with the alleged key art here below.

In the image, you can see a humanoid machine on one knee holding a gun and missing an arm. Surrounding it is debris from what appears to be the remains of a destroyed futuristic city. Notably, the background of the image is reminiscent of the opening seconds of the Armored Core 6 teaser trailer. During it, a cataclysmic wave sweeps everything in its path.

Over the past few months, Armored Core 6 pre-order pages have been popping up on various platforms for players to pre-order the game. But unlike the others, the Xbox app in particular also allows you to download preliminary game data as a sort of pre-installation. When you try to run the downloaded software afterward, the aforementioned screensaver image appears.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise and this installment will be the first new game in 10 years since the last entry, Armored Core: Verdict Day. In February 2023, Producer Yasunori Ogura shared details about Armored Core 6‘s gameplay and setting but didn’t confirm a release date yet.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is in development and will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC in 2023.
