After two beta tests for consoles and pc, Gundam Evolution It has a release date. The new hero-shooter starring the popular anime mechs has two different release dates with a release on September 21st on PC and November 30th on consoles.
Gundam Evolution takes the mobile suit mechs from the Gundam series and throws them into a free-to-play hero shooter similar to Overwatch. According to an interview with Digital Trends in English with its director, the main goal of the game is to present Gundam fans and casuals with a fun and competitive gaming experience.
The game will feature a few modes at launch, including Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. It will launch with 12 playable heroes called mobile suits. These suits can be used in three objective-based player vs. player 6v6 modes. Here’s a quick breakdown of all the included mobile suits returning from the beta.
- RX-78-2 Gundam

GN-001 Gundam Exia and RMS-108 Marasai (UC) will likely appear as unlockable mobile suits like they did in the beta. It is also confirmed that more mobile suits will be joining in the future, as is the norm for the hero shooter genre.
