Former PlayStation Exclusive Gundam Battle Operation 2 Coming to PC via Steam

Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that its online action game Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 is coming to PC.

The game has been available for PS4 for quite a while and has then been released on PS5 last year.

It’s an online free-to-play game and a network test will be hosted between April 14 and April 21 PDT. A full release date has not been announced just yet. Cross-play or cross-ssave with the PlayStation versions is not planned at the moment.

You can already request access to the test at the moment of this writing, even if the server is not active yet.

You can check out the trailer below.

Here’s how Bandai Namco describes the game:

This is a free-to-play team battle action game based on the “Mobile Suit Gundam” series of the Universal Century.
Join your comrades and defend your planet in a massive and realistic battlefield on earth and in space!

Maximum 6 vs. 6 online battles
You’ll be able to play against other players from around the world in online team battles of up to 6 vs. 6!

Infantry Combat
The hero of the battlefield is not only the MS?!
Get out of your MS to plant bombs in your opponent’s base or call in support artillery to stir up the battlefield!
Infantry combat is sometimes the key to victory on the battlefield!

Acquire & Customize MS
After a battle, use the DP you’ve earned to develop your MS, or use tokens to acquire more powerful MS through lottery rations!
You can even customize and enhance your favorite MS!

Base Camp
An online lobby where you can connect with players from around the world!
As a pilot, you can strengthen your MS and prepare for various battles in the base camp. In addition, you can freely interact with various war buddies on the road!

We also already have the system requirements.
