Armored Core 6 release times for every region

If you're itching to deal out some mech-assisted damage, then here's a rundown of the Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubicon release times by region.

Armored Core 6 release times for every region: Two heavily armed mechs face off against each other, bathed in a red glow.

The Armored Core 6 release times are nearly upon us, letting you strap yourself into a heavily armored but surprisingly manoeuvrable death machine. But with the game less than two days away, just when will you be able to fire up your mech in the robot game? Developer FromSoftware has helpfully revealed Armored Core 6‘s precise Steam release times.

It’s nearly ten years since the Armored Core last stomped out, but Armored Core 6 is an especially big deal for PC-owning mecha fans.

Why? Because after gracing the PlayStation and Xbox, this is the first time the series has landed on PC. And you can bet that a week from launch, NexusMods will be packed with Macho Man Randy Savage skins and many, many other delights.

What is the Armored Core 6 release time?

So when can you get your hands on it? While consoles release slightly earlier, PC players have to wait for the game’s simultaneous global launch, which is Thursday August 24 at 3pm PST / 6pm EST / 11pm BST / 12AM CEST.

Here’s just when and where Armored Core 6 unlocks on Steam, going from West to East.
