Armored Core V has two single player modes. You can interact with the online war via order missions or play through the game’s story missions.
In either case, you’re a mercenary. In the game’s story, you’re part of a resistance for a city whose name has been long forgotten ever since a dictator took over. While most residents gave up hope, a resistance formed underground. The group prepared a coup d’état, but plans leaked and the leader was killed. His dying wish was for his daughter Fran to revive the group and fulfill his mission.
That’s where you come in, a lone wolf-like hero, to the world of Armored Core V.
Armored Core V makes its debut in Japan on October 20. Namco Bandai will release the game in North America and Europe early next year.
