With the release of this year’s BIGGEST mech shooter on the horizon, NamcoBandai have released a walkthrough style video on Youtube that shows off some of the specific gameplay elements of Armored Core V. Entitled ‘Multiplayer, Customization and Bosses’ the video is a brief 5 minute explanation of the game’s facets described in the title. Narrated by FilthyRich of BandaiNamco games, we are first given a look at some of the various returning customization options, but more importantly, some of the brand new ones to be featured in Armored Core V. From colour schemes to emblem designs, to the different new types of weapons, including the aptly named ‘ultimate weapon’, including the almighty Grind Blade, the ultimate melee weapon. The video also includes a few gameplay demonstrations showing off the giant boss battles which are promised to be “harder than ever”.
Below is the official press release from NamcoBandai, as well as the video itself. Enjoy!
