As the launch date of Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon draws near, many gamers are gearing up for its arrival. Among them, PC players are taking the lead in preparation, ensuring their systems align with the game’s requirements.
Fortunately, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have released the game’s specifications before the game’s release on August 25th. Below, you’ll find details for both the minimum and recommended system requirements.

Furthermore, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon provides distinct specifications for PC gamers interested in utilizing ray-tracing or opting out of it while playing. When ray tracing is disabled, the game necessitates a minimum of a GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon RX 480. To enjoy ray tracing, an RTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX 6600 at least will be required.
Another notable aspect is the requirement of 12 GB of RAM for game operation. Typically, minimum specs demand the traditional 8 GB RAM, but Armored Core 6 seems to demand extra system memory. Players with a single 8 GB RAM stick might need to upgrade before the release to play at launch.
According to Bandai Namco, the PC specifications provided for Armored Core 6 might undergo alterations in the future. Although not classified as a Soulslike game, Armored Core 6 appears set to provide ample replay ability for players seeking a fresh experience from FromSoftware.
It’s important to mention that Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon arrives more than ten years after the launch of Armored Core 5 in 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Additionally, Armored Core: Verdict Day, an expansion for Armored Core 5, was released in September 2013. Notably, Armored Core 6 will mark the franchise’s first simultaneous release on PC and console platforms.
The game is set to release on August 25 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Earlier, deleted Armored Core 6 footage hinted at a potential PvP mode. More about the game will be revealed at its launch. As the release approaches, you can also pre-load Armored Core 6: Fire of Rubicon on your Xbox.
