64-Player Servers? Gundam Online Game Scoffs With 100-Player Servers

By Eugene . October 22, 2013 . 2:32pm



Who’s still thinking 64-man servers are the biggest and best things this side of the planet when we have Mobile Suits Gundam Online, with its massive 50-on-50 maps?


Namco Bandai have announced that the PC-only third-person online action game will be getting a new “Fortified city” map to fight in. A Capture-the-Point map, players in their Gundam suits will have to either slog it through the deep river or cross the lone bridge spanning the city to take control of the majority of points for their team.


As the video above shows, it may look rather simplistic but with the ability to fly, lock-on, and each of the Gundam universe’s specific robots things can get strategic quickly. Hide in the water with a Acguy maybe, quietly sabotaging the enemy’s water crossing point or just go guns blazing with other Gundams. There’s quite a variety!


Unfortunately, buildings won’t be destructible but do provide plenty of cover against all that lock-on missiles and laser beams flying around—that is, right till a beam saber slices right through you and sends you back to the respawn point. The new map will be available from October 23rd and if you want, you can pick the game up here.

    This will end up on consoles, almost like they designed it so

      I hope

    Sooo… what is needed to play this? Is it IP locked?

    • ZEROthefirst

      Yeah it’s IP locked so you have to go through some annoying things to actually play. If you’re fine with that though it’s pretty fun… just again annoying to get everything set-up because of the IP locks.

    San Andreas MP mod laughs at both of those with its 1000 player servers.

      Too bad it’s no fun, other-wise that might’ve mattered :P

    • Ferrick

      i’m sorry, but 50 mech vs 50 mech is much more interesting than 500 avatars vs 500 avatars

    As a hundred player online game may sound great, if it’s not a great game to play (I’m not saying this game is), it’s not going to matter much.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Good thing it actually is fun… just getting the game set-up and working outside of Japan isn’t fun because of IP locks.

      • PreyMantis

        Awesome! I hope it gets localize.

  • Ferrick

    oh sweet i want to try *ip block* NOOOOOOOOOOO ;A;

  • Aristides

    Will this game ever make it to the west? 0-0

    that looks epic!
