From Software also revamped online play by having players fight over virtual territory. Everyone (unless you disconnect your console) is linked to an online server where the territory wars continue. Using this system, other players can create missions for their team to complete. While you’re attacking you’ll also have to defend acquired land with traps such as cannons and bombs. Armored Core V is designed so players will have to communicate with others and share their successes as well as failures. As long as there is a community of people that play Armored Core V, the game will have life, Nabeshima mused.
Armored Core V still has a single player story mode, although Nabeshima didn’t elaborate on it much. Namco Bandai will release Armored Core V in North America and Europe early next year.
