Unfortunately, Armored Core 6 is currently not on Xbox Game Pass, so you will have to purchase the game physically or through the Xbox store if you want to start customising your mech.

This is relatively unsurprising considering the fact that no FromSoftware games have ever made their way to Xbox Game Pass before, making the only likely way for it to be a day-one title being through a specific partnership between the studio and Microsoft.

Will Armored Core 6 come to Xbox Game Pass in the future?

While we do not know for certain and things could obviously change, it would be unlikely that Armored Core 6 comes to Xbox Game Pass in the future too, as similar instances have not happened in the past.

This could all change of course, as Microsoft and FromSoftware could strike up a partnership in some capacity. For the moment though, that seems very unlikely and would be at least a while after the release of Armored Core 6 regardless.

That's everything you need to know about a potential Armored Core 6 Xbox Game Pass release, so you can be safe in knowing that your purchase won't be wasted by any imminent Game Pass availability.

If you have decided to pick up the game, there's no better place to head next than our Armored Core 6 homepage, as we've got so many guides that will help you out on your journey across Rubicon.
