Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play team-based first-person shooter featuring 6v6 PvP combat with playable mobile suits across the Gundam multiverse. The game offers three objective-based game modes: Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. The title presents a unique set of challenges where teams need 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.
