Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon has been out for a couple of weeks now, and some players have already seen the ending and the endings after that one, too. We enjoyed the game, giving it an 8.25 out of 10 – you can read our review here. If you haven’t jumped into From Software’s latest action title yet, though, you might be in luck because a new patch that’s now live buffs various weapons and adjusts some boss attacks.
From Software released Patch 1.02 today, and while the overall update is small, it buffs nearly 10 weapons and fixes a smattering of bugs. The studio says, “[This] new patch has been distributed to improve gameplay stability and make balance adjustments” and that it is “focused on balance adjustments that will allow players more build diversity in the early and mid-game when assembling their AC, as well as bug fixes.”
The patch is live on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. From Software says PvP-oriented balance adjustments will be released sometime in the future.
