Gundam Evolution PC network test is now live

Bandai Namco announced the Gundam Evolution PC network test is now live.

Pre-registrations have been live for the Gundam-themed hero shooter’s PC stress test for weeks now, but players still have a chance to get in by requesting access directly through the Steam page as the Gundam Evolution PC network test is now live. The playtest lasts until April 12th at 6:00 PM PDT.

Gundam Evolution is a 6v6 hero-based arena shooter where players control a wide range of mobile suits from a variety of Gundam anime and manga series. The game’s English YouTube channel recently uploaded a trailer showcasing the Marasai and Gundam Exia that were announced a few months back.

The Marasai is a mass-produced mobile suit that originally appeared in Zeta Gundam. It was developed by Anaheim Electronics to give the Anti Earth Union Group a mainline mobile suit with superior performance to the Hizack, but found its way into Titans service due to political pressure regarding the manufacturer’s support for AEUG. Many Marasai units survived the Gryps Conflict and found their way into the hands of Neo Zeon, serving in several of the wars that followed. The Marasai in Gundam Evolution is one such example, sporting the green color scheme, Fedayeen Rifle, and Sea Serpent electric whip used by Zeon Remnants in Gundam Unicorn.

The Gundam Exia is the main Gundam from the first season of Gundam 00, and is piloted by the series’ protagonist, Setsuna. Like all of Celestial Being’s Gundams, the Gundam Exia is a highly advanced machine that far outclassed conventional mobile suit designs of the era, due in no small part to its GN Drive. Referred to as the Gundam Seven Swords while in development, the Exia is geared almost entirely for melee combat with its arsenal of beam sabers and GN blades.

You can see both of these mobile suits in action in the trailer below.
