Armored Core 6: Fires Of Rubicon is already fairly rattling cool as is, what with the large mechs zooming about and making issues go growth. However now think about two (or extra) mecha-besties zooming about and making issues go growth collectively. Cooperatively. That’s what one upcoming Armored Core 6 mod goals to allow, and it’s coming from the modder who brilliantly carried out co-op in each Elden Ring and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Modder LukeYui lately launched a short clip to display what two-player co-op would appear like within the sport’s “Assault The Watchpoint” mission. Tag-teaming numerous metallic giants appears thrilling sufficient, however within the YouTube description, the modder reveals that the total launch will assist as much as six gamers with one host and 5 company, simply in case the vanilla model didn’t have sufficient missile barrages for you.
Elsewhere, LukeYui says the mod will function degree scaling, regardless that it’s not current in its present alpha construct. “The host will be capable to alter the problem per extra participant,” they write. “All missions are playable in co-op and your get together persists between missions, that means you don’t must preserve reconnecting. The host chooses the mission.”
There’s no phrase on when the Armored Core 6 co-op mod will probably be prepared for flight simply but, however you’ll discover it on LukeYui’s NexusMods page when it’s executed. LukeYui’s earlier co-op mods for fellow Fromsoft slashers Elden Ring and Sekiro are additionally nonetheless up on that web page, which ought to make hammering by means of each video games rather less intimidating. Or you’ll be able to simply mod janky Armored Cores into The Lands Between when you wait. It received’t make the sport any simpler, however seeing a stiff, awkward robo-chap standing subsequent to an unkept mountain big would possibly simply take the sting off.
Our Armored Core 6: Fires Of Rubicon overview stated FromSoft’s newest was a “ceaselessly sensible motion sport that makes essentially the most of its mechs, but additionally curiously at odds with itself and just a little overstuffed.” I fairly loved its dreary loneliness at instances – when my eyeballs weren’t fixating on the explosions like a baby watching Gundam for the primary time – however certainly a number of extra mechs couldn’t harm, proper?
