The invites for the closed beta of From Software’s fifth main installment in the Armored Core series have been sent out today. The beta will only be “a small fraction of the finished product”, but will offer team play, story missions, mech customizing and a taste of the newly implemented “Mercenary System”, where one player plays the role of operator and issues commands to the other players while overseeing the battle.

The beta for the PS3 version of the game is scheduled for July 1st – July 14th, the Xbox360 version will follow from July 18th – August 1st. The finished game will hit Japanese store shelves on October 20th, fans overseas will probably have to wait until some time 2012.

When he's not busy playing games, watching obscure movies or being an cynic, he tries to write descriptions of himself in the third person that won't make him look like the nerd he actually is. He also knows Japanese and isn't afraid to use it.
