Armored Core V Demo Dated

Posted on January 17, 2012 AT 07:36am

THE BUZZ: From Software has announced plans to release a demo of Armored Core V for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The demo will go live January 19, on Xbox Live and PSN, however the demo will only be available until January 23. It features both offline and online play, but the online servers will not become active until January 21. Offline modes will allow you to play the tutorials and campaign missions, while the online offers team area battles.

EGM’s TAKE: Armored Core has a large Western following so many fans are eagerly anticipating a return of the franchise. Having experienced the game we found it fun playing as a team. The new fifth player commander role offers something other multiplayer games lack, however if you’re new to the franchise the whole experience can be a little overwhelming and complex, creating a barrier of entry for new players.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
