As we have previously reported, EVA Battlefields, is scheduled for a launch on 26 March 2020. Alongside the announcement was a new gameplay trailer that gives us an insight into what to expect:
EVA Battlefields is described as a “cinematic 3D battle game”, where you can battle other players in your EVA of choice. Additionally, there is a curious point where they apparently intend to link the game to real life EVA figures, and utilize them as “controllers” like how you would use a PC mouse, for example. They will have ID chips to store data that is not unlike Nintendo’s amiibos.
The game will be following the storyline of the theatrical release, but will also introduce original characters. It will be a free to play game with in-game purchases, presumably in addition to the real life figures. One presumes that a battle pass system would likely be implemented into the game as well. With the integration of amiibo-likes, it’s curious to see how overseas players may want to collect them. In any case, we’ll find out how it works on EVA Battlefields release date on 26 March 2020.
Also, EVA Battlefields is running a “Urgent Error Code” campaign where players will have the opportunity to win a set of 12 pilots after decoding five questions. Furthermore, everyone will receive 30 gems if the mission is cleared successfully. Reminder that pre-registration is going on right now, so be sure to follow the official Twitter or enter your email address on the official website, which is also where to go for the latest information.
