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.

The best FPS games
the best fps games featured

There are countless genres of video game genres to get lost in -- but one of the most popular is the first-person shooter (FPS). Spanning decades of unforgettable hits, the FPS genre is home to beloved classics that have sent us to space, to creepy houses in the bayou, mysterious underwater cities, and even head-to-head against other skilled players online. It's a genre that is so much more than just shooting your foes.

Because there are so many to choose from, it can be daunting to make a selection for which ones to play. Many of the older FPS games are harder to get back into, while some of the newer ones might feel incomplete or are riddled with unfriendly loot boxes to purchase. Not to worry, though, as this list will go through the absolute best FPS games of all time, ranging from the N64 all the way to today.

Grand Theft Auto VI didn’t need The Game Awards

This past week was one of the most crowded for video game news because of two events: The Game Awards 2023 and the Grand Theft Auto VI trailer. Initially, I was surprised the two weren’t one and the same. GTA 6’s reveal is the most significant game announcement of the year, after all, and Geoff Keighley always seems to be searching for big Elden Ring- or GTA 6-level moments for his show, even if he doesn’t always get those. After taking a step back and looking at how each performed independently of the other, I think both were better off staying separate.
Taking center stage
When it first teased the Grand Theft Auto VI trailer in November, it said the trailer would be released “in early December.” Like many others, I assumed that this meant it would show up at The Game Awards because that tends to be the case when game developers tease an announcement for that window. For example, Focus Entertainment also said a release date for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 would be confirmed “in early December,” and that ended up happening during The Game Awards.

Ultimately, Rockstar had the GTA 6 trailer slated to release on the morning of December 5, but ended up releasing it on the night of December 4 due to a leak. The game would not go on to make any marketing-related appearance at The Game Awards 2023 on December 7. Although GTA 6 skirted The Game Awards, was leaked, and got posted earlier than intended, it was still a groundbreaking reveal.
