2022 is the year in which Bandai Namco plans to release its upcoming free-to-play first-person shooter Gundam Evolution, and today we get to see new gameplay footage.
Shared on the official Twitter account of the game, several videos showcase one of the Mobile Suits (more precisely a Mobile Armor) available in the game, the transformable NRX-044 Asshimar originally portrayed in Mobile Suit Z Gundam.
You can check the videos below, showing the mecha itself, its powerful “Large Beam Rifle” including its three-shot and charge shot capabilities, the “Napalm Bullet” active skill, its iconic transformation that allows it to hover without consuming boost gauge, and it’s “Punch” G Maneuver.
In case you have missed the original reveal and the first gameplay, Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play first-person shooter for PC (Windows 10 is required) that will let you choose a mecha from the franchise and wreak havoc in 6 vs. 6 battles.
There are three modes, point capture, domination, and destruction, and voice chat is supported.
The mecha announced so far are the RX-78-2 Gundam, the RX-80PR Pale Rider, the MS-06 ZAKUⅡ, the ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos, the MSN-04 Sazabi, the MSA-005 Methuss, the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II, the NRX-044 Asshimar, the ZGMF-XX09T Dom Trooper, the WD-M01 ∀ Gundam, the RX-75 Guntank, and the RGM-79 GM. You can also see them in previous screenshots and a second gallery.
Every mobile suit has its own abilities and powerful skills named G-Maneuvers. Official service should begin in 2022.
