From Software isn’t planning on making a sci-fi Soulsborne with Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, but you can expect the studio to include its signature boss fights in the game when it arrives in 2023. According to director Masaru Yamamura — who served as project lead on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice — boss fights will be challenging and players will have to tinker with their mechs before they can challenge a massive armored core on the battlefield.

“Boss fights are the highlight of the game in this title,” Yamamura told IGN. “The essence of the combat, in which the player reads the enemy’s movements and then plays games with them, is given naturally, as is typical for From Software. In this title, both the enemy and your own machine are aggressive and violent in their to attack.”
