ETERNAL Transmission Vol.28/18/2022
To all the fans of the G Generation series,
This is the SD Gundam G Generation ETERNAL dev team.
It's been roughly a month since we released the first entry in the ETERNAL Transmission dev blog, but we're glad to announce that we've finally started recruiting for the Closed Beta Test ("CBT")!
So today, we would like to go over what you can expect from the CBT!
First, we regret to inform you that the number of applicants will be limited in this CBT, as our primary focus is to collect data to make adjustments and stress test gameplay features.
We understand that this may come as a disappointment for eager fans who were looking forward to participating in the CBT, but please rest assured that we will be considering all of the feedback and opinions collected throughout the test to create the best possible experience for our fans.
So if you are interested, please make sure to register for the CBT!
Closed Beta Test Outline
1. Play select stages during the CBT
You'll be able to experience a portion of the scenario stages of the following Gundam works in the CBT!
- ・Mobile Suit Gundam
- ・MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM SEED
- ・Mobile Suit Gundam THUNDERBOLT
G Gen ETERNAL offers an immersive experience where you can enjoy scenes from the series while playing through the scenario.
Also, as mentioned in ETERNAL Transmission Vol.1, battles will be rich with various cutscene animations and character voice lines to further enhance your experience!
And although the battle and scenario experiences have been separated in this game, we hope that the animations will come together with all the various gameplay elements to create the most immersive experience possible.
Please feel free to share your feedback and opinions with us!
2. Sortie by creating your very own unique squad and experience various battle animations!
You'll be able to sortie in exciting battles by mixing and matching various MS units and characters to create your own unique squad!
Also, as previously mentioned, G Gen ETERNAL will be returning to the roots of the G Generation series known for its strategy gameplay on grid-based maps. As such, we'd like you to take your time to fully experience the UI and controls as you command your units and battle across the battlefield.
As for battle animations, you will be able to enjoy and experience "full" and "quick" battle animations during battle. We have also introduced a few examples over at our official Twitter (https://twitter.com/ggene_eternalEN), so make sure to check them out!
3. Train, Develop, and Produce various units and characters!
During the CBT period, you'll be able to obtain various units and upgrade them by using the Train, Develop, and Produce features familiar in the G Generation series!
Although you won't have access to all the features in full, the units that will be available in the CBT will primarily be those closely related to the Gundam works introduced in section 1 above, but will include MSV units, units from related series, and even some original G Generation series units.
Please look forward to them!
