About Armored Core for Answer
In the distant future, massive urban development and pollution have
critically damaged the planet. There is widespread fear that the end
of the world is approaching. The League corporations, a military
superpower, control the planet’s infrastructure and have forced most
of the world’s population to live in huge aerial communities, called
Cradles, to avoid the contamination. The ORCA, a rebel resistance
still residing on the surface of the polluted planet, have amassed a
formidable arsenal and are mobilizing to attack The League’s bases to
put an end to their iron grip on the planet. As a mercenary armed with
cutting-edge military robot technology, choose your side and defeat
the other factions by harnessing the power of the deadliest and most
gigantic weapons ever created by mankind. Armored Core for Answer is
rated “T” for Teen with Mild Language, Violence.
