Today Bandai Namco announced release dates and new information about the upcoming Gundam Evolution.

First, we get the announcement of the release dates. All regions will receive the game on PC between September 21 and September 22 depending on the time zone.

The launch on consoles (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One) will take place between November 31 and December 1.

Being a free-to-play game, there will be optional microtransactions, seasons, and season passes. Each season will last approximately two months and new mobile suits and goodies will be added each season.

New playable mobile suits have been announced for Season 1, including Unicorn Gundam, Mahiroo, and Zaku II melee layout. In addition to the previously revealed Gundam Exia and Masarai (UC), they can be unlocked with EVO Coins (EC) and Capital Points (CP), the latter of which are earned through gameplay.

Season 1 will also include four new maps bringing the total to 10.

The game will include unit skins, weapon skins, MVP stages, stamps, emotes, player icons, and ornaments. You can get them through the premium pass and supply pods.

There will be over 500 unlockables at launch. Character selection animations and portraits will be added later.

A bundle called “DX Edition” featuring all five unlockable mobile suits for Season 1 in addition to additional goodies (4 Japanese-inspired skins, 4 weapon skins, and 1 ornament) will be available for 4,180 EC.

In case you missed the original reveal and first gameplay, Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play first-person shooter that will let you pick a mecha from the franchise and wreak havoc in 6 vs. 6 battles.
