Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 Adds the Freedom Gundam

Freedom has arrived! Bandai Namco

Good news for everyone! New in-game mobile suits have been released for Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2. For the Steam version, players can look forward to getting their hands on the Freedom Gundam. PlayStation users meanwhile get the Engage Zero Booster Type added to its ranks. These new mobile suits are available through supply drops, which players can earn in-game or purchased separately.

For those wondering why we're getting a new mobile suit, this is in celebration of the upcoming anime feature film Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom. The film is a sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. In particular, film is set a year after the events of SEED Destiny.

Talking about this latest addition, producer Hiraishi shared that when they were first asked to introduce mobile suits that were outside of the UC-era, they wanted to release it "in the right way." He revealed that after the player survey they conducted last year, it was clear that players wanted non-UC mobile suits for the Steam version while making sure that the version for the PlayStation remained true to the UC.

Game Fixes

As part of the release of the new mobile suit, an update has also come out which introduced fixes to the game. Unit fixes include:

  • In the "Full Armor Alex", there was a case in which the MS would turn in an unnatural direction when certain operations were performed and now is fixed.
  • In the "Blue Destiny Unit-1", the icon for the sub-weapon "Chest Missile Launcher x2" has been changed to match the weapon feature.
  • In the "Nu Gundam", "Hi-Nu Gundam", and "RX-93ff Nu Gundam", when an enemy unit was destroyed by some melee attacks, the usual destruction motion wasn't displayed and now is fixed.
  • In Ex-S Gundam, "Ex-S Gundam Beam Smart Gun" and "Ex-S Gundam Beam Saber" were not sorted in the correct order and now is fixed.
  • In "Banshee Norn", there was an unnatural display in the Armed Armor XC during transformation and now is fixed.
  • In "Banshee Norn", the English name of the sub-weapon "Beam Jutte" was different between the customization screen and the battle screen and now is corrected.

Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 is available for the PC through Steam, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
