What's Armored Core?
Armored Core is a video game series developed by renowned video game studio From Software, the creators of the popular Souls series, as well as the King's Field and Another Century's Episode games. The games are based around designing and controlling a highly customizable mecha known as an Armored Core (AC), which is 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.
