Movies showing off the new Jaburo map and Battleships!
Two videos show off the most massive Gundam game ever, with more than 100 players at a time!
The first movie introduces the Jaburo map, planned for availability in Alpha 3. The map has been expanded and tweaked based on feedback; get a taste of the fierce battles which await you!
The second video shows off the aerial battle between the ships Grey Phantom and Zanzibar over the New Yark map. Battleships also function as a respawn point, making them a key part of any strategy.
The Gouf Custom joins Principality forces in Alpha 3
Gouf Custom MS-07B-3 (Assault Type)
Developed as an improvement to the Gouf, this suit boasts not only fearsome melee prowess but also ranged capabilities that outstrip its predecessor. The Assault Type is equipped with triple catling cannon, heat sword, and heat rod. This suit can be developed by Principality of Zeon players.
Matchmaking for the biggest battles is easier than ever.
Alpha 3 adds the ability for players on different channels to join the same queue. By reserving a slot, players can customize, chat, and shop while they wait for a battle to begin.
More info about the game will be posted on the official site as it becomes available.
