Namco Bandai Games announced on Friday that it is releasing the Armored Core: Verdict Day PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Australasia. The company will release the game this fall.
From Software (Dark Souls) is developing the game, which is slated to ship in Japan on September 26. Namco Bandai Games describes the latest game in the Armored Core franchise as follows:
Command a squadron of advanced Armored Core mechs in a dystopian future ravaged by war and stripped of natural resources. Players will form squads of up to 20 members and enlist into one of the various in-game factions to wrestle control of territories away from other players in the game's persistent multiplayer mode. New gameplay features will be implemented into ARMORED CORE: VERDICT DAY to ensure that players who choose to play alone will be able to recruit a squad of A.I. controlled mechs and enjoy the robust feature sets of co-op and multiplayer modes, while new matchmaking system ensures that players will always find battles at a moment's notice.
Players will be able to carry over their save data from Armored Core V, and will be able to further customize mechs. The game will also feature the return of Operator Mode.
Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine had revealed on Thursday that the game was in development.
