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.
