Gundam Evolution launches on PC in September, consoles in November

After two beta tests for consoles and PC, Gundam Evolution has a release date. The new hero-shooter starring the popular anime mechs is sporting two different release dates with a September 21 launch on PC and November 30 date for consoles.

Gundam Evolution - Exia & Marasai Introduction Trailer

Gundam Evolution takes the mobile suit mechs from the Gundam series and throws them into a free-to-play Overwatch-like hero shooter. According to a Digital Trends interview with its director, the game’s main goal is to present Gundam fans and casuals with a fun, competitive gaming experience.

The game will feature a few modes at launch, including  Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. It’ll launch with 12 playable heroes called mobile suits. These suits can be used in three objective-based 6v6 player-vs-player modes. Here’s a quick breakdown of all the included mobile suits returning from the beta.

  • RX-78-2 Gundam
  • MS-06 Zaku II [Shooting Equipment]
  • MSN-04 Sazabi
  • RGM-79SP GM Sniper II
  • ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper
  • RX-75 Guntank
  • RX-80PR Pale Rider
  • ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos
  • MSA-005 Methuss
  • NRX-044 Asshimar
  • WD-M01 ∀ Gundam
  • RGM-79 GM

It’s likely that GN-001 Gundam Exia and RMS-108 Marasai (UC) will appear as unlockable mobile suits as they did in the beta. It’s also confirmed that more mobile suits will join in the future, as is the norm for the hero shooter genre.

Gundam Evolution isn’t 2022’s only Gundam game release. The multiplayer action Japanese roleplaying game SD Gundam Battle Alliance just released — a game that can be summed up as Kingdom Hearts but for Gundam fans.

For fans that prefer Overwatch, but for Gundam fans and beyond, Gundam Evolution releases on September 21 for PC and November 30 for consoles.

How to get a pet in Diablo 4
Diablo 4 barbarian

Since it's an always-online experience, you'll never truly be alone in Diablo 4. Between all the other players you can encounter roaming around the world, and the ability to play co-op with friends on any platform, odds are you will never be lacking a companion. Even so, you can't expect someone to keep you company at all times, unless you get yourself a pet. Granted, there's only one pet available at the moment, and it is purely a cosmetic item and won't help you in combat, but is an adorable companion nonetheless. Here's how to get a pet in Diablo 4.

Apple made it clear: The Vision Pro isn’t the next big video game platform
A man wears Apple Vision Pro.

The cat's finally out of the bag: Apple is entering the AR/VR world in a big way. Revealed during the company's annual WWDC stream, the Apple Vision Pro is an impressive XR headset that can be used for anything from writing emails to watching movies. Apple calls the device the "most advanced personal electronics device ever," and that might be true -- though the jury's out on whether or not it's worth the jaw-dropping $3,500 price tag.

Heading into the long-rumored reveal, there was one use case I was most curious to see: gaming. Video games have long been a crucial selling point for VR headsets, showing off the power and potential of any given device. Just last week, we got our first glimpse at the Meta Quest 3, which was revealed hours before a dedicated Meta Gaming Showcase. Considering how much Apple has been investing in gaming over the past year, I figured we'd get a dedicated block during the Vision Pro reveal that would similarly emphasize the platform as a gaming device.
