Prepare yourself for a long battle before you start Armored Core V. This week’s issue of Famitsu notes story missions can take between 20 minutes to an hour to complete. In the middle of missions, players can capture Garage Points where you can reload and repair your mech. All missions in Armored Core V can be played online with cooperative play.
As mentioned earlier, Armored Core V has players fight over territory. While everyone is on a team, you can switch temporarily sides as a mercenary. If your team needs extra firepower mercenaries can be hired for a price. A screen that shows a player’s user ID, rank, and mech type (sniper, defensive, etc.) lets teams pick a mech to fill a void in their forces.
For players who want a quick mecha fix, From Software created order missions with simple tasks to complete. Armored Core V has over seventy of these to play
From Software plan to release Armored Core V on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year in Japan. Namco Bandai will release the title overseas early next year.
