Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon and Elden Ring are highly similar titles. One may involve colossal mech confrontations, while the other offers dramatic battles with dragons and demigods, but the foundation upon which both are built is nearly identical. This holds true for the rest of FromSoftware's modern catalog as well, enabling modders to create some rather extraordinary crossovers, such as pitting Malenia, Blade of Miquella, against Wolf from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
There are numerous other absurd crossovers between FromSoftware games, but one of the most peculiar ones is arguably a recent creation. A modder named Dropoff has actually managed to take some maps from Armored Core 6 and integrate them into Elden Ring.
In Armored Core 6, one often loses a sense of scale. It's easy to lose sight of just how colossal one's own AC truly is until you come across a heap of destroyed cars resembling an explosion in a Hotwheels factory, reminding you that you are larger than most buildings. It would have probably been easier for FromSoftware to design the game in a different way, but Dropoff's video essentially confirms that everything is indeed in the correct proportion.
Dropoff showcases three specific maps from Armored Core 6, namely a vast canyon, the city of Xylem, and the infamous tutorial area that managed to weed out many newcomers upon release. To expedite movement, as traversing the same distance on foot would naturally take significantly longer than with a rocket-powered mech, Dropoff increases the speed of the Tarnished and allows them to hover, providing us with a comprehensive view of the entire environment.
While this project itself is impressive, what is even more remarkable is the level of detail FromSoftware has put into things that 99 percent of players would simply flatten with their mechs. Aside from occasional hexagonal wheels and invisible barriers, there are hardly any texture issues with smaller vehicles, truly showcasing FromSoftware's impeccable attention to detail.
Unfortunately, in this video, Dropoff only showcases empty maps without a single AC or MT in sight. It will be interesting to see how mods for both titles evolve, and I am eagerly anticipating either an AC soaring through the skies of The Land Between or a dramatic confrontation between 626 and a Tarnished in the near future. However, I don't believe this battle would end well for Team Elden Ring.
