The game 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 on 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.

As you can see, they’re a mix of mobile suits from the Universal Century timeline and from the spinoffs, all bunched together on the same battlefield.

Every mobile suit has its own abilities and powerful skills named G-Maneuvers. If you tell me this feels a lot like Valorant with Gundams (and slightly larger teams), I wouldn’t blame you.

A closed beta will be hosted for Japan only on August 8 and August 9 and applications are available here. official service should begin in 2022.

You can check out a trailer below.

Interestingly, Bandai Namco seems to be aiming high in terms of visuals for Gundam Evolution, as the hardware specs are relatively demanding for this kind of game. You can find them below.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
