Shown in today’s Sony State of Play livestream, the online shooter Gundam Evolution got a new gameplay trailer, as well as firm confirmation that it will get a simultaneous Western release later this year. A network test was also announced for the US and Japan coming sometime this spring.
Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play FPS with six players on either team competing in objective-based game modes. You are able to take control of a variety of different Mobile Suits, each with different combat capabilities, as shown in the trailer below.
Detailed in a post on the PlayStation blog, Gundam Evolution has three different game modes: Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. The first has teams trying to either attack or defend a specific control point, the second has them simultaneously fighting over three rotating points, and the last has one team trying to destroy an objective the other is defending.
First announced in July of last year, Gundam Evolution already had a network test in Japan, but a Western release was left unconfirmed at the time. Initially announced for PC as well, today’s reveal also confirms that it will be coming to PlayStation 4 and 5.
