Armored Core 6: Do Enemies Scale in New Game Plus? (AC6)

Do you need to rethink your build before partaking on a new adventure?

Armored Core 6 is a difficult game, but it’s not impossible by any means. As you progress through the campaign, you’ll unlock new parts and equipment that will turn you into a rolling, or skating, death machine. Now, after completing the main mission, you’ll be thrust into the action once again with new missions to partake in. You may be wondering at this time, however, if you’ll need to rethink your build to take on more challenging enemies, or if you’ll be rolling through the same foes that you have once before. Let’s jump into our ACs and find out together.

Do Enemies Scale Difficulty In New Game Plus In Armored Core 6?

For better or for worse, enemy difficulty will stay the same during a new playthrough of Armored Core 6. You’ll still have to face off against that terrifying attack helicopter at the start of the game once more, but you should have a much easier time this time since you’re decked out to the maximum. BALTEUS isn’t going to know what hit him now that you’re more powerful than ever.

However, for those hoping to challenge themselves, New Game + and New Game ++ do offer some exclusive missions that will put your skills to the test, offering challenges above those found in the main adventure. You’ll also encounter a few extra AC units that will challenge you during your playthrough, so it isn’t all the same. You may need to experiment with your builds at some point throughout your new adventure before you find yourself meeting an early demise.

While other FromSoftware games do tend to scale their enemy powers up higher than normal, this isn’t your typical FromSoftware experience. You’ll find that Armored Core 6 stays true to its roots while advancing the formula of those that came before it.
