Armored Core is a video game series developed by renowned video game studio From Software, the creators of the critically acclaimed Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls II, and Bloodborne. Their other works include Otogi, Tenchu, King's Field, and Another Century's Episode games. Armored Core games are based around designing and controlling highly customizable mechas known as Armored Cores (ACs), which are then taken on missions for rewards. Although the characteristics of Armored Cores change dramatically throughout the series, the emphasis on adaptability and piloting skill remains constant. In the campaigns, the player is put into the role of The Raven, a silent protagonist who acts as a mercenary, taking contracts assigned by various individuals in return for payments. These missions may vary in their objectives, from mass destruction and AC-on-AC duels, to protection and escort duties. Throughout it all, The Raven will be accompanied by an Operator who relays important information from outside the battlefield. In the end, The Raven's actions will always shape the fate of the world, for better or for worse.
