Choose Your Faction for Local and Online Play

In Armored Core V players join a faction and make strategic and battlefield decisions based on the needs of that group. The overall goal is to acquire territory, which can be altered, to the detriment of rivals. As in earlier releases in the franchise, players can customize their armored core mechanized combat units to fit a variety of needs. In fact, Armored Core V allows for more customization options than ever before in franchise history. Players can upgrade and customize their mechs using 500+ items such as head pieces, cores, arms, legs, and weapons. Armored cores can also be outfitted with a wide variety of weaponry, including new 'Over' weapons, which can destroy enemies with a single round. Designed for strategic use, Over weapons are available in three varieties: close range, long range, and area. Mechs within the game can also be configured to a smaller size than in previous games, making them faster and more maneuverable than in the past. They are also more easily rendered, en masse in online play. Once mechs are configured, they can be stored in garages throughout the play area, making them available more quickly, and as a squad, wherever the player may think that they will be needed.

Players of Armored Core V who have a consistent broadband connection also have to the option of creating a persistent online profile. The profile allows for interactive online multiplayer, in matches up to five-on-five. But online profiles do not necessarily need to equate to online play. Once profiles are setup, they can be used to track both multiplayer online activities, as well as single player success.

Key Game Features

  • Interactive Multiplayer
    • Up to 10 players can play online simultaneously in 5-on-5 cell match-ups
    • Each team's 'operator' sets strategy, conducts recon and issues tactical commands
    • Capture territories to accumulate team and individual points, increasing rank
    • Higher rank enables greater purchasing and customization options
  • Deep Customization
    • Upgrade and customize from 500+ items such as head piece, core, arms, legs, and weapons
    • Collect multiple armored core units and store them in your personal garage
    • DLC components such as emblems will further customize each armored core
    • Trade parts, booster packs, soldier models, BGM, and in-game items with other players
  • A Wide Range of Weapons
    • Base weaponry includes kinetic, chemical and thermal
    • New 'Over' weapons with 'one hit kill' power can change the tides of battle
    • Over weapons are broken into three types: close range, long range, and area

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sequel! March 21, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Alright so I'm not sure what those 1 star reviewers were expecting(gundams maybe?)but this game is certainly not a 1 star game, and it is an improvement over number four. First this game has an excellent integration of "teams", each consisting of 4 players and 1 overseer if you choose, which is fairly fun and similar to a party in other games. You can customize your teams emblem, colors, or even the defenses of the territory(s) that you hold. Any mission, whether story, against enemy AC's(what you play as), or a boss mission, can be played with your team. Once you've done a few missions and get some team points, you can challenge other teams for control of their territory, and when you take territories your teams emblem is put on the main map for all the world to see!
As far as combat goes you are not the mach 5 super gundam fighter you were in ac4, you are a smaller mech with very different capabilities that rely more heavily on positioning, wise spending of your systems energy, proper use of the multitude of weapons at your disposal, and against other teams and certain bosses teamwork!(unlike acfa where you were so fast the only thing that seemed to even hit people were rifles and occasionally blades and snipers, now anything can be made deadly if you use it properly). Still a fast paced game, especially once you get past the terrible starting AC you get at the start, and the scale is still large just not open and overly bland.
Only gripe is that it is hard at first to figure out if you've never played an AC game but once you learn it or if you have a friend that can help you it quickly becomes fun. Overall it's solid and very fun to play, and is a definite must for any mech fan or even non-mech fans especially if you enjoy customization(it has boat loads of this)!

4.0 out of 5 stars For Chromehounds Fans - Maybe March 23, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really, really miss Chromehounds. So early last year I started searching sites seeing if there was any word on a sequel.

Someone mentioned that this game may be enough like Chromehounds to satisfy us Chromehounds fan-boys. So I pre-ordered it from Amazon.

I am a terrible gamer. I'm old (54) and slow, but I do love playing mech games. The levels of customization of your platform rock. The controls aren't too difficult to learn, and I love the fact that so far I'm down in the rubble versus zooming through the air.

If I can get my old Chromehounds squad to buy this, it has the possibility for many hours of fun. If not, I may get 20 or so achievement points and it'll end up on a shelf in my man-cave with all the other games I had high hopes for.

Game on.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'll try not to be biased, May 7, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played armored core since armored core 4. Warning though, if your not really into mechs or technical stuff. Your not going to enjoy this all- this game requires understanding of a certain degree of logic and creativity, it will challenge you, if you are patient enough-and i am adhd by the way, you will be rewarded immensely. A bit of warning though, unlike other games, this is more clan/ team based, so if your team sucks, your probably going to hate being part of clan, or you can just make your own and kick KOA out of their home base-ha, i wonder if anyone's going to get the reference.

Also, this game, does not have a story, it is a heavy multi-player game , if you are looking a meaningful story, I beg of you, turn a blind eye to this game for that.

Things that I hate about this game are, when you invade people' territories, and light on fire, especially if you know which team is doing it to you, it becomes a grind. Repeating the same territory with the same freaking turrets in the same area. Also, the server's need tweaking, especially on invasions, with other clans and clan mates, teh game either disconnects players or other team members as well. there are balance issues as well, there are certain things that need to be toned down like Gatling guns USG's, freaking strakoza's, and sniper rifles things and as for things that need to be toned up are normal rifles and pistols'....especially pistols, . Shotguns need to be slightly toned down but not severely.

Neutral things about this game
Clan wars are surreal, so if you get involved with an organized clan, prepare for some alliances and for some major b.s. to fly.

2.0 out of 5 stars YOU BETTER READ THIS IF you are considering this game. February 2, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Ive played ALL Armored Core games since its birth. Not too mention Steel Battalion, Steel Battalion Line of Contact (until shortly after the servers went down), and a bunch of others. Including that abysmal game "Front Mission Evolved". No.. I never played "Steel Battalion Heavy Armor". Just looking at it was enough to cause pain. So anyway, onto the review.

-Graphics: The mechs, the parts, the weapons, all look great. Seriously. The maps... No. Like all AC games they put about as much focus into the maps as you put into someone you throw into an oubliette. They forget about it. So dont expect any amazing landscapes or wonderous battlegrounds here. Its a bunch of buildings, streets, fences, and occasionally some open landscapes with a hue change. All their focus was on the mechs, your ability to change their colors and such. Which can be fun if you find a build you like, then you can sit there for hours staring at your creation admiring yourself.

-Single player story: Garbage. After you go to the trouble of fine tuning your masterpiece the single player campaign is no more than a series of simple "go kill it" or "go kill them" or "go do this/that and kill it/them". I beat the game, and it was so memorable I can't for the life of me tell you the point of the story. You cant even tell who you are fighting for in this game the story is that poorly written, and voice acted. All your base now belong to someone who wrote the dialogue.

-Multiplayer: Wow. The multiplayer has regions locked out. So basically you can only play with people in your region. If that wasnt bad enough, they advertise it as having a theatre mode. NO. Its a recording of a top down view of a schematic map, that has icons replacing the mechs and what they do is replaced by text actions.
