From Software has set an October release window for the arrival of giant mech stomper Armored Core V in Japan, with a closed beta set to precede the game's release, to ensure that its online battling is up to scratch.
In Armored Core V, players will battle for online territory and the war will even continue as long as your console is connected online. Famitsu magazine also details a variety of boosting options in the game, with a Glide Boost enabling you to boost in any direction, a Boost Charge gives you a devastating dash-kick as long as you attach the requisite parts to your mech, and the Hi-Boost is a rapid, short-distance dash.
You'll be able to jump and boost too, as well as adopting various stances, like the 'weapon shift' and 'purge' stances, which will enable you to refine your mech battling approach.
Armored Core V will be boosting its way into Japan in October 2011, while Namco Bandai will be publishing the game in North America and presumably Europe in early 2012.
