Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play team-based first-person shooter that features 6v6 PvP combat using playable mobile suits across the Gundam multiverse. The game offers three objective-based game modes, which are Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. There’s also a unique set of challenges that require teams to craft and execute formidable offensive and defensive strategies to emerge victorious.

Players get access to a roster of 12 units at launch. Additional mobile suits and customizable items are also available but must be unlocked. To unlock them, players can use EVO Coins, available for real-world purchase, and Capital Points (CP), obtained in-game through gameplay.

Features of the game include:

  • Varied Units
    • Players can pilot units from across the Gundam multiverse.
    • Each unit features various attack skills, support functions, and HP levels.
  • Thrust System
    • Activating the Thruster Gauge kicks the action into overdrive.
    • Use Thruster Movement to cover long distances fast and Dash for rapid bursts of acceleration.
    • With the Thrust System, pilots can move effectively around the battlefield and use sudden surprise movements to their tactical advantage.
  • G-Maneuver
    • In addition to their innate abilities, units come equipped with powerful G-Maneuver effects.
    • These effects, which can be activated when the G-Maneuver Meter reaches 100%, vary from unit to unit.

In addition to the Sortie Trailer, a Mission Briefing trailer was also released. It gives everyone an overview of the mission at large. The Mission Briefing can be accessed with the appropriate clearance level. You can watch it here.
