According to the allegedly leaked Armored 6 details, the story will revolve around a special substance called Melange. This miraculous substance will have the power to bring about human advancement.
The leaked document reads,
“In the past, it caused a cosmic catastrophe on planet Bashtar that engulfed the surrounding star systems, and eventually its very existence was lost. Decades later, the Melange reaction was confirmed again on planet Bashtar.
In search of the unknown substance that should have been lost, various speculations begin to swirl. Various parties are getting involved; The government, corporations, cultists, and unknown mercenaries… The protagonist is one of them.”
It also explains that Bashtar was developed by Hidetaka Miyazaki.
The gameplay will be a third-person shooter just like the previous games. There will be a ginormous 3D map to guide players. The leaked screenshots contain pictures of snow-covered cities, sand-covered planes, and extraplanar space stations.
A huge part of the gameplay will be long-range combat using a plethora of dangerous weapons. For short-range combat, players can choose swords and shields. Players will be required to use both forms of combat in a strategic manner to defeat enemies.
A unique feature of Armored Core 6 will be special 3D movements that work at nonhuman speeds. This will only work if the movements are equally smooth or controlling the game will become a hassle!
