The lights are on
Namco Bandai announced that Armored Core: Verdict Day is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this summer.
Set in a dystopian future, Armored Core: Verdict Day has players commanding squadrons of up to 20 mechs. Players combat for territory rights in multiplayer mode, which ensures that players will get matched into games quickly. Single-player mode allow playerss the ability to recruit A.I.-controlled mechs with all benefits of multiplayer.
Players may carry over saved data from Armored Core V, allowing further customization of previous Armored Core mechs with hundreds of new parts.
“The Armored Core series has continually found itself a deep and dedicated fanbase,” says Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing for Namco Bandai. “Armored Core: Verdict Day expands the level of immersion with more advanced customization fine tuning and streamlined multiplayer modes.”

I never played a mech game before, but this game looks good. I would also like to play Steel Battalion with the 200 button controller, but not the horrible kinect version.
I have never heard of this before.
I gotta say I did not enjoy armored core 5 at all, and if this is gonna be the same stuff then count me out. As much as I enjoyed the series growing up, every installment has in my opinion got worse and worse.
I hope they learned from V. Customization and whatnot was excellent, but at the sacrifice of story and other aspects of the series.
meh, AC V was underwhelming, so I hope this can bring the series back up
Really enjoyed For Answer, got psyched for Armored Core V and was sorely disappointed. I'm sure it was a massive step in the right direction for some, but it was like I had been playing a Mech Need for Speed and switched over to a mech Forza. I recognize For Answer also had some granular stats, but nothing to the level of V. Of course, V could have been infinitely more fun if I had a friend who also owned it since it had an impressive multiplayer focus.
Is the story a direct continuation of ACV, too?
I loved these back in middle school.
I used to be a fan of the series. But I don't think I played any since ps2. I might give this a try but I don't care for squad based games. Hopefully there is going to be a demo.
Good that players are still getting something out of their PS3s and 360s this year and that they aren't holding onto stuff like this for the next-gen.
