Before they built upon the legacy that is the Souls series, FromSoftware was best known for the Armored Core series. It has been years since a new entry into the mech action title has been released, but now it appears that the Japanese developer is once again gearing up for a new entry, as a new Armored Core game, Armored Core 6, screenshots leak online following a consumer survey sent out to players. Check out the screenshot below and see if we truly have Armored Core 6 on our hands.

The screenshots comes from a Resetera thread discussing a recent consumer survey sent out to some players relating to Armored Core. The survey, according to the original poster, included details, screenshots, and two 30-second clips, although none were posted as they were watermarked, meaning that they could very well be protected by copyright. However, a commenter later in the thread managed to grab the screenshots, which you can check out below:
The poster also shared some details based on their time with the survey:
The screenshots were not huge and 8 in total.
1. More snowy area, player character in the air firing down on a street with vehicles below (tanks? cars?)
2. A smoke-filled aerial shot with an enemy in the distance.
3. A darker green/grey toned area gunfire and light/fire coming from the combat everywhere.
4. Snowy area again, ground-based combat against a similar sized enemy (pvp?)
5-8: These four looked like boss fight shots:
5. A bigger humanoid mech, white/grey. Player character has red lights on their mech, on ankles, shoulders and lower back.
6. A huge, tall armoured tank boss.
7. Difficult to make out, player on right, enemy another humanoid mech on left a yellow/gold slash(?) effect I think the player is attacking the enemy with a melee attack.
8. Gunfire battle with a circular yellow effect in front of player character – blocking the gunfire with shields or some attack? Shape and colour reminds me of the Heal miracle in Dark Souls, golden circle.
As is with everything unconfirmed, take this one with a grain of salt until officially confirmed.
