Armored Core 5 is a vehicular combat video game for Sony PS3 and Xbox 360, release date to be announced later. It is the 14th installment and 5th main installment of From Software's Armored Core series.

The game will be more about tactics and using the geography of level rather than high-speed finger work. This harks back more to the original PSone games, especially the first, as many levels were set within city type environments and were more tactical as a consequence. A notable difference will be smaller, which will allow more varied, "three dimensional" stages. A greater emphasis on stealth will be the direct result in the size change, allowing the mecha to maneuver between alleyways, and buildings for cover, and stealth tactics. Due to the size change of the mecha, levels will be much bigger and more detailed. Another element is that you won’t just view your AC from behind, but will have more camera control. The developers are taking a more realistic approach. The narrative will mirror this too, as the characterisation won’t be simply friend or foe but instead more grounded and realistic.

The game’s Japanese release is currently scheduled for sometime in 2010, for both PS3 and 360. No publisher for the US release has been announced as of yet.
