Armored Core 6: A Mech Game with Endless Customization Possibilities
FromSoftware’s next Armored Core game is shaping up to be a standout entry in the Mech Game genre thanks to a combination of solid gameplay and a unique customization feature that lets you make your mechs your own. The studio’s approach to customization in Armored Core 6 stands out in particular because it eschews the trend of charging players for simple options like decal skins. Instead, FromSoftware has made the entire system open to players, with the potential to cause a flood of creativity.
The tradition of Armored Core games offering extensive customization dates back to the PS2 era. The series’ most iconic feature is the ability to create your own mech designs and color schemes, allowing you to truly make your mech your own. While the upcoming game doesn’t deviate from this formula, the unique feature of decal customization has sparked excitement among players and generated a buzz.
The Time To Dicks (TTP) on this feature was surprisingly low, as we wasted no time in creating phallic designs for our mechs.
While there are other games that offer full customization options, FromSoftware’s decision to prioritize customization over microtransactions has been well-received. The absence of paywalls for these types of cosmetic options is always a welcome change, and Armored Core 6 will undoubtedly benefit from this approach with increased player engagement and satisfaction.
FromSoftware has struck the right balance between gameplay and customization in Armored Core 6. The game’s decal customization feature has generated a buzz and increased excitement for its launch – and for good reason. Whether you’re an Armored Core veteran or new to the series, the ability to create and share your own decals is an enticing prospect.
