Armored Core 6 is FromSoftware's latest release and is an ambitious next gen imagining of the long-stagnant Armored Core franchise. Armored Core 6 kicks things up a gear and is slated for release on the most powerful systems of the current generation. As such, the Armored Core 6 system requirements are going to be a whole lot higher than previous iterations.
If you're someone with a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X | S, you don't need to worry about being able to play it smoothly. FromSoftware is typically excellent at optimizing its games for a visually stunning and consistent experience graphically. However, the same might not be true for PC gamers, especially if you're running old rigs. So let's dive into the Armored Core 6 system requirements and recommended specs.

Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubikon system requirements
Below are the minimum system requirements for Armored Core 6 listed on the Official Bandai Namco Store.
- Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
- OS: Windows 10
- Processor: Intel Core i5-8600K or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
- Memory: 12 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, 4 GB or AMD Radeon RX 480, 4 GB or Intel Arc A380, 6 GB
- DirectX: Version 12
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 65 GB available space
As you can see, the Armored Core 6 minimum requirements are fairly high but not incredibly demanding compared to most other next-gen games.
This is good news for mid-budget gamers, and those running high end specs should rest easy knowing that they're in for a smooth 60 FPS experience. If you're running the minimum requirements on high-end rigs, you can expect at least a stable 30 FPS experience on lower settings. The GTX 960 and RX 480 are fairly outdated graphics cards, and anything superior to them will allow you to run the game smoothly on medium settings and above.
These low requirements mean that we also don't need to worry about major performance issues, as has been the case with a lot of modern next gen releases such as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Just make sure you have 16GB of RAM installed in your computer, and you'll be good to go.
