'Gundam Evolution' Console Network Test Planned For June, Accepting Sign-ups

Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play hero shooter that offers a 6v6 competitive team-play dynamic with playable mobile suits from across the Gundam multiverse.

Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play team-based first-person shooter featuring 6v6 PvP combat. The game will offer three objective-based game modes: Point Capture, Domination and Destruction. The title presents a unique set of challenges that will require teams to craft and execute formidable offensive and defensive strategies to emerge victorious.

Each playable unit in Gundam Evolution possesses its own unique combination of offensive, defensive and/or supportive skills capable of swinging the tides of battle. The starting roster of playable characters will feature 12 units, including the classic RX-78-2 GUNDAM and the iconic ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos. Additional mobile suits and customizable items can be unlocked in two ways: Capital Points (CP), which are accumulated in-game through gameplay, or EVO Coins, which will be available for real-world purchase.

Whether you’re a hardcore UC fan or perhaps you have extra “iron” in your blood, there are plenty of units from across the Gundam multiverse for everyone to try. Not limited to a specific class role, players can select their preferred suit from their favorite series freely and adapt their play style to suit the team’s needs.

Furthermore, an Auto Repair system (a function that gradually recovers a unit’s HP over time) and cleverly placed Repair Pods throughout the environments allow players greater variation in their team builds and combat strategies. Complementing our intuitive game controls is a unique Boost system, which grants players access to skillful tactics that can assist maneuverability on the battlefield, allow teams to quickly rally support and even dodge enemy attacks in the heat of battle. 

After the earlier PC Network Test, Bandai Namco is now accepting signups for the Gundam Evolution Playstation and Xbox network test, which will run from June 23, 2022 (19:00 PDT) until June 28, 2022 (06:00 PDT)

Sign-ups are being accepted in two rounds, initial applications are open starting today until May 12th while additional applications between May 12, 2022 (20:00 PDT) until May 25, 2022 (20:00 PDT).

The first wave will be notified June 16th while the second wave will be notified (and admitted) between June 24 and 26th.

The additional lottery period may end earlier depending on the number of additional applications, and those who were not selected for the initial round of applications will be automatically entered into the additional applications. There is no need to apply again.

Before you throw down a challenge to your rivals, let’s review the three types of battle rules: Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction.

  • In Point Capture, teams take turns attempting to occupy iterative control points. Players will need to flex all their skills to move to the second point or fiercely hold the line of defense to secure the win.
  • Domination ups the ante, with both teams fighting to control three objectives that are unlocked randomly. It’s a wild battle of points in a constantly evolving battlefield.
  • In Destruction, teams are divided in the Attacker and Defender roles and battle to destroy or defend their objective. Cooperation is the key to turning the tide of battle in this game of suppression and sabotage.

Each mode features various Earthly and interstellar map locales for players to explore. Whether traversing a Lunar base or taking up arms deep within a resource quarry on Earth, all six players will need to work together and adapt to every combat situation to secure the win.

Players who purchase season passes unlock more cosmetic accessories as they progress, including mobile suit skins, weapon skins, and weapon charms.

Gundam Evolution is coming to PS5, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2022.
