'Gundam Evolution' Is Finally Arriving Later This Month and It's Free to Play

·1 min read

More than a year after announcing the game and months of closed beta testing, Gundam Evolution has finally received a release date from Bandai Namco Entertainment. The new team-based FPS title plays very similarly to Blizzard's fan-favorite Overwatch, featuring two teams of six Mobile Suits that will try to eliminate each other while capturing objectives.

There'll be timed respawns so you won't get kicked out immediately after a death, but there's also a countdown timer for objectives. At launch, there'll be 12 different Gundam units to choose from, all of which are iconic in their own right, ranging from RX-78-2, Guntank, and GM to Sazabi, Zaku II, Dom Trooper, Turn A Gundam and even Barbatos. As you play through the three current game modes of Point Capture, Domination and Destruction, you'll gain more EVO Coins and Capital Points that'll allow you to unlock more Mobile Suits and cosmetic items for customization.

For those interested, Gundam Evolution will be completely free to play on September 21 in North America, Europe, and Japan on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. Those in other parts of Asia will be able to access the game solely on PC via Steam a day later.
