Armored Core 5 will hit stores on March 20, 2012 in North America and on March 23, 2012 in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation.
Armored Core 5 revolutionizes the series with massive online multiplayer battles designed around huge team-based skirmishes on a grand scale, a robust offline mode, and a completely new atmosphere. Featuring ACs or “Armored Cores” that are customized for more strategic gameplay, Armored Core 5 focuses on tactics and effectively utilizing the geography of a level to maximize the devastating effects of attacks.
