A special version of Armored Core: Verdict Day for PlayStation 3 is now available for pre-order at clubNamco. The $149.99 premium release will include a copy of the game, the soundtrack, an art book, and a limited edition figurine of an Armored Core unit. Currently in development at series creator FromSoftware, Verdict Day will allow players to form squads of up to 20 combatants and enlist non-playable factions to battle for territory in a massive war that takes place on an off- or online persistent world.
Solo players will have the option to recruit AI-controlled squads to engage in offline co-op play and multiplayer, while online players will be able to utilize a matchmaking system to battle with others whenever they wish. The series’ traditional focus on mech customization returns, and Armored Core V saves can be transferred over to import and update old favorites. An improved Operator Mode will also allow battlefield commanders to more easily utilize the top-down perspective to command units and issue orders
Armored Core: Verdict Day is scheduled to launch this fall for 360 and PS3.
