■First of all,
Greetings to all Pilots, I am Ishii from the Developments and thank you for your hard work!
I’ll be presenting you the Developer Newsletter.
The 4th Anniversary Campaign was held for a month from the end of July. We hope you enjoyed it!
I was also excited to see “Unicorn Gundam” and “Banshee” standing side by side at the base camp while fireworks were lighting up right! Sometimes I even did squats in between them.
(I was kind of happy to be applauded by a pilot I didn’t know)
As GBO2 enters its fifth year, all of us at the development team will continue to work hard to make it the best it can be, so thank you for your continued support!
Now, let’s move on to this month’s update information.
■New Unit “Gelgoog Vertex Kyanos” Joins!
Gelgoog Vertex Kyanos scheduled to join from “MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM MSV-R RETURN OF JOHNNY RIDDEN”!
In contrast to the already implemented Raid Unit “Gelgoog Vertex” (which is the first with alias Testa-Rossa), Kyanos will appear as a General Unit with “Rapid Turn” skill.
In any case, it will be effective by battle of mobility.
<Unit Description>
・Origin “MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM MSV-R RETURN OF JOHNNY RIDDEN” Dispatch Restriction “Ground/Space” General Unit with Cost of 600.
・An MS designed and developed by Anaheim Electronics exclusively for Chimera Corps’ Yuma Lightning.
・Although the development base of it is the Gelgoog Vertex-1 Testa-Rossa, Kyanos inherits the unique head shape and conformal tanks on the legs, which are the specifications of the high-mobility Gelgoog Type B that Yuma was operating. It has also changed its main armament to a beam bayonet, which is a highly responsive weapon.
・High mobility unit mounted on its back allows for a higher degree of freedom in combat. Beam and live ammunition armaments mounted on each part of the fuselage provide a high ability to cope.
・”Rapid Turn” skill allows Unit to turn rapidly while moving at high speed.
・Can be deployed both on Ground and into the Space.

■Free camera function in spectator mode!
Until now, battles were able to be watched from each pilot’s point of view or from a fixed point of view but, from this update, you will be able to freely watch the heated battles from anywhere on the map!
Below video is from an actual battle in spectator mode.
I think it makes spectating even more enjoyable!

We also tried to recreate the original scene with the help of some other pilots…
※Various UI indicators can be hidden by pressing the touchpad button.
It’s now probably easier to take cool screenshots and funny videos than before!
■Last but not least,
Next Update will be launched on [PDT] 08/24/2022 22:00 / [CET] 08/25/2022 06:00.
Speaking of which…have you completed the limited time mission for the 4th week?
There are less than two days left until the end of the campaign, so if you haven’t completed it yet, please do your best and take on the challenge!
If I get the “Gouf Heavy Equipment Type” safely, I will put it in the modification facility…
Well then, thank you for your time and let’s meet at the battlefield!
