Super Robot Wars 30 will add Gilliam's Gespenst for free on November 16
Bandai Namco has published a new roadmap for Super Robot Wars 30's post-release content. An English version of the announcement is also available on Steam. The roadmap revealed that the game will have update patches that add new content on November 16 (at 23:00 UTC) and December 2021.
The biggest highlight of the first update patch will be the addition of Gilliam Jaeger's Gespenst from the SRW Original Generation series. All players will be able to recruit Gilliam in the "Black Specter" stage after gaining access to free-roam space locations.
The other content included in the upcoming patch will be the "Happy 30th Anniversary!" special stage. It will feature a new map with a giant 30th Anniversary logo plaque. Clearing this stage will reward the "Super Robot Wars Soul" power part that increases the unit's damage and activate the Soul spirit once at 130 Morale.
Bandai Namco will also release the DLC1 introductory stage "Visitors" for all players, regardless of whether they have purchased the DLC or not. This stage will only register the DLC characters into the game's encyclopedia. Only players who have owned the DLC will be able to access the new instrumental theme songs and stages that actually let them recruit the new units.
While DLC1 will be officially released on November 18, those who have owned the Season Pass will be allowed Early Access on November 16, the same day the free content update comes out.
Bandai Namco has yet to give exact dates for the next update patch and DLC2 that are set to appear this December. However, they have confirmed that the December patch will add an even harder Super Expert Mode and raise the maximum caps of unit and pilot upgrades.
Super Robot Wars 30 is now available on PC via Steam worldwide, as well as PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan and Asia.
