Notice to pilots of all levels! The online exclusive Gundam Evolution is coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in 2022. Claim victory on the battlefield in this new free-to-play FPS where players can pilot Mobile Suits from the animated Gundam series in 6v6 objective-based combat.
Early in development planning, we established two main concepts that we wanted to incorporate into a new Gundam game experience: “Fast-paced and immersive Mobile Suit team battles” meets “The ability for any Mobile Suit to achieve victory using its unique set of attributes, abilities, and empowering tactics.” We’ve worked hard to develop this title and are more than excited to connect FPS fans with Gundam fans. Check out our Western trailer, featuring the main theme from Gundam Evolution remixed by world renowned DJ and Gundam fan Steve Aoki!.
Go beyond your limits
Gundam Evolution is free to play and features 12 initial Mobile Suit units that all players can pilot for free, each with their own unique attack and support loadouts. Whether you’re a die-hard UC fan or maybe have more “iron” in your blood, there are plenty of units in the Gundam multiverse for everyone to try. Not limited to a specific class role, players can freely choose their favorite costume from their favorite series and adapt their playstyle to the needs of the team.
Additionally, an auto-repair system (a feature that gradually recovers a unit’s HP over time) and cleverly placed repair pods in environments allow players greater variation in building their teams and their combat strategies. Complementing our intuitive game controls, a unique Boost system gives players access to deft tactics that can improve battlefield maneuverability, allow teams to quickly rally support, and even dodge enemy attacks. in the heat of the action.
The rules of the fight
Before issuing 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 use all their skills to advance to the second point or fiercely hold the defensive line to secure victory.
Domination ups the ante, with both teams battling to control three randomly unlocked objectives. It’s a wild battle for points in an ever-changing battlefield.
In Destruction, teams are split into 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 terrestrial and interstellar map locations for players to explore. Whether traversing a lunar base or taking up arms deep in a resource quarry on Earth, all six players will need to work together and adapt to each combat situation to ensure victory.
Join the Evolution: Closed Network Test Set for North America
This spring, we will hold a network test for PS5 and PS4, and we need your help to test various game and server functions! It’s a great opportunity to participate in the development of the game, test your piloting skills and try out some features such as aim assist, ready to help players new to the genre. PS5 gamers will also get their first taste of the gorgeous 4k resolution and performance-focused 60 FPS graphics settings.
In addition to the first 12 Mobile Suit units, two additional units are joining the fray just in time for the Closed Network Test: Gundam Exia* and Marasai [UC]*.
One of the four Gundams used by Celestial Being to end the war through armed intervention. Developed to excel in melee combat in all conditions. Piloted by Setsuna F. Seiei.

The closed network test is a great opportunity to try out these additional units as well as some of the various customization items available to earn in the final build.
*These additional units and unit skins will be available in the full-service version, either earned through play or obtained through purchase.
This test should include Japan and North America (US and Canada). Stay tuned as additional information on the schedule and entry details will be made available on our official website and social media as soon as they are finalized.
We are excited to create the world’s first competitive online Gundam FPS. Additionally, we are also excited to announce that we are launching simultaneously in Japan and North America (US and Canada) in 2022. We are also planning our release in the European region, although we cannot yet share the final details. We appreciate your support and will be sure to share European release details once our information is finalized. Thanks for reading and we hope to see you on the battlefield later this year!
