Armored Core: Fires of Rubicon is an excellent return for FromSoftware to the world of mech combat. Although they were known for this franchise years ago, they have lately gathered a brand new fanbase of Soulslike titles via their Souls franchise.

While the game is drastically different from those fantasy souls games, it is equally challenging. It would not even be surprising if some newcomers found themselves all dazed and confused while trying to get into Armored Core VI.

For anyone finding it hard to get through the initial levels of this game, we have some useful tips.

Remember, it’s a mech game, and there’s a reason players get to customize pretty much every aspect of their machine. They have to continue doing so just to keep their balance of power and mobility in line with the levels they are getting through. Players can customize the left- and right-hand weapons of their mech, in addition, they can even customize the shoulder-mounted weapons of their machines. If that’s not enough, they can even change the head of their machine.

Pretty much every one of the customizable parts of your mech makes a difference. Also, every mission should be approached with one thing in mind; you cannot have one build and carry it through the whole game.

It’s a fast game, and of course, one has to get through its controls and mechanics in an effective manner. Fans must not forget one last thing about every FomrSoftware game out there: they test your patience. They are intentionally designed to push away those who accept defeat pretty easily; hence, perseverance is the word. Other than these things, it’s an insanely fun game that eventually grows on you.
