Gundam Evolution Release Date Information

Confirmed only for a Japanese release so far, Gundam Evolution will release sometime in 2022 for Windows PC.

On July 17 at 7 a.m. ET, Bandai Namco is planning to host a livestream on their official YouTube and Twitter channels to dive into more details of the game.

What we do know so far, however, is that Gundam Evolution does look very reminiscent of Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch, which also has invites two teams of six players to use characters with special abilities to compete for objectives.

Three game modes in Gundam Evolution have been revealed so far:

  • Point Capture: In a 2-round match, with the defending and attacking teams switching off at halftime, teams fight for control over target areas, which move and push the spawns of the map.
  • Domination: In a best of 3-round match, teams fight to capture one of three randomly spawned points that actively rotate in becoming available.
  • Destruction: In a 2-round match, with the defending and attacking teams switching off at halftime, one teams aims to activate a destructive weapon within the time limit while the other works to prevent that.

  1. Gundam
  2. Pale Rider
