When is the Gundam Evolution Release date for PlayStation & Xbox?
Bandai Namco has revealed that Gundam Evolution isn’t coming to consoles until November 30, 2022. Gundam Evolution will likely launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on December 1, 2022.
“Additionally, the console version’s service is slated to begin on December 1st, 2022 (JST). If you are waiting on the console version, we thank you for your continued patience and ask that you wait a little longer for more information,” a message from Bandai states.

Gundam Evolution Gameplay and Story: What do we know?
Gundam Evolution will be a hero first-person shooter where players can choose from three modes and compete in 6v6 battles. These include Point Capture, Destruction, and Domination.
Along with that, Each mobile suit in the game has a different loadout and will feature an exclusive playstyle.
For example, Barbatos (the popular Gundam from the anime Iron-Blooded Orphans) uses a spear-like melee weapon while another Gundam named GM Sniper II uses a long-ranged weapon. It’s up to the players what suits them the best.
There is also a Varied Units part where you can pilot units from across the Gundam Multiverse. Each unit features different attack skills, support functions, and levels of HP. You need to pick the right one that’s suitable for your style.
As for the story, there isn’t a single-player campaign or story mode in Gundam Evolution. It’s just a thrilling first-person shooter you can enjoy for hours without getting bored of it. The Gundams likely have only one goal- to defeat their oppressors and get freedom.
