Armored Core 6 did really well for FromSoftware, becoming the second-best game at launch on Steam, even surpassing the Souls franchise. This is especially exciting because mecha games are still not very common, and we haven't had many good ones to play in the past.

The success of Armored Core 6 gives hope that this genre will finally get the recognition it deserves from a larger audience. Of course, every game needs some adjustments and updates from time to time, and Patch #1.02 focuses on improving the overall balance of the game.

On this page, you can always find the patch notes for the latest Armored Core 6 updates. We hope you find it helpful.
