FromSoftware next game could be Armored Core, they sent out surveys & footage to participants asking about soulslike bosses, the footage had a white mecha fighting a giant robot.

While we're at it, can someone reboot the Colony Wars series, too?!

ID: hrt6alc

I don’t think that developer exists anymore. I wonder who owns the IP these days. A colony wars reboot would be one of the few announcements that would absolutely blow me away.

Have a great weekend!

Edit: Also, yes to a new armored core

ID: hrt6qyu

The IP is owned by Sony, they just don't seem interested in making more.

I've missed Armored Core. Great games.

I've platinumed every souls game (except DeS PS5, working on it) and I'd be super stoked if their next game after Elden Ring was an AC with all the cool stuff they've learned.

ID: hrs25qu

Not only what they've learned but the budget they would likely have access to. Fromsoft is making some money lately

ID: hrs283j

Yeah, and that excites me. God, that could be such an amazing game!!

Between this and Project GG from Platinum, I’m very supportive of this upcoming rebirth of kaij

robot video games.

EDIT: For the curious, here’s the trailer:

I need to Google this...

Edit: Okay, so what is with that font in the trailer?? But damn, okay, this looks awesome!! Pacific Rim with a twist.

This is a great idea. Have it be a souls like game. For the hell of it set it in the Bloodborne universe. No robots this time around though, keep things more grounded. Call it Bloodborne 2.

Maybe have it be in a gothic victorian setting too.

Throw in a pinch of Lovecraftian horror and it would be perfect.

I wonder if Fromsoft is big enough now to have two teams working on different games.

ID: hrs0sf4

They worked on Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 while polishing dark souls 2 for release. Obviously they had Japan studios' help with Bloodborne, but they've been doing multiple projects for a while.

ID: hrwem70

They were working on sekiro and elden ring at the same time

I want another 3D Dot Game Heroes

Haven’t played any of the AC games but consider me intrigued

Damn I love armored core ☺️

9 : Anonymous2022/01/08 13:55 ID: hrrz9xa

I loved Armored Core. Long time fan. I hope they don't turn it into Armored Core: Dark Souls edition. Just give some insane almost not there plot and let me fight some robots. It would nice if they had an online arena mode where you could take your custom mecha against others

ID: hrt7h1x

Yeah that would be shame to have to never play another Armored Core game because they applied their 'difficult for the sake of content padding, bore me to death with tediously repetitive gameplay loop'. The souls formula for me isn't would be a shame to turn AC into a horrible slog of fighting through the same enemies while fighting the shitty and unresponsive controls at the same time type of game.

I’ve never played an armored core game but have they featured stuff called the melange before? Cause that first paragraph in the leak reads like Dune

12 : Anonymous2022/01/08 15:11 ID: hrs8ogt

Armored Core nailed a good mech game for me. The options, individual battles, customization of aesthetics. Soooo good

13 : Anonymous2022/01/08 13:47 ID: hrrydvh

Niceeeee.. Cant wait for it..

14 : Anonymous2022/01/08 16:22 ID: hrsinrs

I played a lot of Armored Core back in the ps2 days. Bloodbourne’s combat finally clicked with me when I started thinking of the character as a mech from AC.

15 : Anonymous2022/01/08 16:55 ID: hrsnkpy

Could this be the game that will be Playstation Exclusive? I recall reading at some point within the past few months, that FromSoftware had another game outside Elden Ring, that was being made exclusive for Playstation. Have no idea of that's supposed to be another Bloodborne, Dark Souls, Sekiro, or I guess Armored Core now

16 : Anonymous2022/01/08 14:38 ID: hrs4gao

That's fine, but personally I've always been turned off by mecha/robot types of games. So I'll pass.

17 : Anonymous2022/01/08 18:09 ID: hrsz3al

I mean, I don't care much for shooter games, but if Miyazaki turned Armoured Core into a sick scifi/mech Souls game where you battle giant mechs and kaiju with enormous electric swords, well... I'm here for it 100%.

ID: hrt8rjm

Did you mean to say 'made a completely different game than an AC game that happened to have mechs in it'?

ID: hrt99v6

Sure. Again, never played Armoured Core but I just had a vision after reading this post of a souls level where instead of trecking through a ruined castle you are trecking through a scale ruined future city as a crazy looking mech with a glowing space sword and that sounds so fucking sick, whether or not it’s called Armoured Core.

Not a dark souls game.

The point is to make two gains robots fight eachother.

Preferably against people.

Otherwise am I even living? Can one go a lifetime of never having experienced total domination of the enemy with a giant pink robot with cat ears?

ID: hrst1v6

Have you ever disembarked from a titan just to see yourself get yeet'ed across the map in titanfall, kind of sounds like that hahaha

I've kept my PS3 connected this whole time for Fight Night Champion, but I occasionally jump on AC:V and it's always such a treat. I really love Mech games but there hasn't been a real good one since. Battletech is good if you like RTS, there's Hawken for MP which had potential but it's kinda dead, although they did get the feeling of badassness from the mechs right. Mechwarrior has always felt very repetitive to me. I tried the gundam games but the gacha aspect of it is a turn off. Daemon X Machina looks like a fun time but it's not on a system I own, hopefully one day it gets ported to Playstation.

Armored Core coming back would be awesome.

Wake me up when they announce Adventures of Cookie and Cream 2.

I thought From's next game was Elden Ring

23 : Anonymous2022/01/08 13:45 ID: hrry518

Ugghhh… everything is a souls-like and/or every company is trying to put souls-like mechanics into their game. It reminds me of the late 90’s/early 2000’s where every single studio tried to put stealth into their games because of Metal Gear Solid.

I understand that From Software invented it, but for Christ’s sake, not every game from them has to be a Souls game.

ID: hrsji2u

It’s basically a genre at this point, so that’s like me telling ea to stop making sports games or me telling square enix to stop making rpgs lol.

ID: hrs2hb7

as if other companies doing a shitty version of what they do is a good reason for them not to stick to their proven formula. lmao

ID: hrt2ogl

They've never really had a flop, i've enjoyed every souls game they've made(just personally), so its highly unlikely they will change their current development direction away from soulslike games to any other game type. Why change what's working, when what's working sells.

So until they have a souls game that totally flops, they most likely won't change direction.

Its like asking tesla to stop making cars and start making phones because they keep making cars that look the same despite selling well.

ID: hrs0p30

But they do it best though? Why should they stop because other company’s are doing half ass attempts.

I played all these back on the ps1, ps2, and ps3. But man they innovated so little between console generations it became frustrating. The potential with these games is incredible, but it’s obvious they just rehashed the same engine between console generations, and made the graphics nicer.

25 : Anonymous2022/01/08 20:37 ID: hrtlih6

They need to make blood borne 2, though I struggle to see how. Maybe you fight as a squid god? Maybe a prequel? Maybe the hunter squid has become evil and you have to replace it idk. The only thing I do know is the game is worthy of a sequel.

ID: hrtx0vn

Sony owns the ip, not them. Also, enjoy BB as fun little ride it was
