Bandai Namco has announced that the free-to-play Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 is scheduled to release on PC (Steam) this year.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 is an online team battle game based on the Mobile Suit Gundam Universal Century. The game is already available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, but now it looks like a PC version is on the way.

In the game, players engage in 6vs6 online battles. Stages include ground maps like Port Base, Tropical Desert, Arctic Base, and City Ruins, along with space maps like Dark Space, Resource Satellite, and Space Fortress Interior. Battles unfold with players either piloting Mobile Suits or taking direct control of their pilot on the ground.

The game features Mobile Suits from a range of different Gundam series, which are divided into General, Raid, and Support types. It’s possible to acquire new Mobile Suits through gameplay, and the equipment and paint can be customized to create your own personal Mobile Suit.
