what Gundam Evolution gameplay like?
Gundam Evolution is a multiplayer first-person shooter where teams of six compete in one of the game’s three objective-based game modes: Point Capture, Domination, and Destruction. In that sense, it’s less about accumulating a body count and more about strategizing how to achieve the goal. Work with your teammates to achieve this goal to defeat the other team.

Who are the Gundam Evolution characters?
Gundam Evolution puts you in the cockpit of your favorite mech fighter. Although it’s based on the mobile suits seen in the Gundam anime, you play as the mech, not the anime character.
The starting roster includes all 12 units seen in the trailer as the RX-78-2 GUNDAM and the ASW-G-08 GUNDAM BARBATOS. Each playable unit has its own unique kit consisting of different skills, which can range from offensive to more support-based ones. There isn’t much information available on individual units at the moment.
That’s not where it stops either. Players can unlock other mobile suits and customizable items with Capital Points (CP), the in-game currency you can earn by playing the game, or EVO Coins, which require real money. There is also a purchasable Season Pass which can unlock more cosmetic accessories such as mobile suit skins, weapon skins, and weapon charms.
