At PlayStation’s State of Play livestream today, Gundam Evolution was officially announced to be coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Before today, the multiplayer team-based shooter was solely planned to be a PC release.
Go ahead and check out a brand new, action-packed announcement trailer down below:
As you can see in the gameplay footage above, the game will focus upon multiplayer-centric first-person shooter action. Players will step into the shoes of a bunch of super cool mechs and battle it out in fast-paced 6v6 arena-style matches.
In addition, you’ll be able to choose between 3 competitive game modes: Point Capture, Destruction, and Domination. From what we can gather, Gundam Evolution will be a free-to-play hero-shooter experience with an emphasis on tactics and teamwork. Oh, and you can fly, which is always a big bonus in our book.
Of course, fans may recognise the brand as it’s based on the popular Mobile Suit Gundam franchise from Japan. The game is being developed in-house by Bandai Namco Online, and is scheduled to arrive later this year.
