Many people were excited about Evolve, the 4v1 co-op video game in which you and three other players would hunt down a monster, an incredibly fast or large and powerful monster that would also be controlled by a player and would be trying to kill you first.
And why not be excited? 4v1 co-op games were big, and it looked like a lot of fun. But then came the dreaded pre-order bonus. Most games have them, and many anger fans—because games are often released broken these days, and withholding good content from those who don’t commit to a game before release is insulting—but few anger as much as Evolve‘s did. Of the pre-order bonuses the game offered, the most notable was another monster to play as, the biggest and arguably best of the monsters at the time. And if you didn’t pre-order, this one digital monster would cost you $15 as DLC. That’s when much interest died, and the game never became what many—including developer Turtle Rock Studios—hoped it would become.
But instead of just accepting defeat and letting the game disappear into obscurity, they’re still admirably fighting to make it the game they think it can be. And that starts by making it free to play on PC in what’s being called Evolve Stage 2. You can read more and see a new trailer below.
A new story trailer has been released for Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve, the upcoming co-op player vs. player game that sees you teaming up with three others to take on a big bad monster…a nasty beastie which also happens to be controlled by a fifth player.
We’ve seen plenty of peeks at the game in action, but this new trailer offers a little insight into the story behind the game. You can watch the “Evacuation” story trailer for Evolve below.
Once upon a time, a long-ish time ago, many exciting new video games were scheduled for release in 2014. Now, after delays, more delays, and even more delays, we have but a few to look forward to this year.
One of the more exciting games that was set for release this October was Evolve, the upcoming four-versus-one monster hunting multiplayer offering from Turtle Rock Studios. But sometimes more time is needed to ensure the best game possible, and that just happens to be happening often this year.
Publisher 2K Games has announced that Evolve has been delayed a few months, moving from October of this year to early 2015.
One of the more exciting co-op games that’s on the way is called Evolve. We first heard of the game back in February, when we learned that you would play it with four other people. You and three of those other people play as human characters with special abilities and weapons who hunt down various deadly monsters in various locations. The one remaining person gets to be the monster. This creates a pretty brilliant sounding four-versus-one monster hunting game, but of course, it only works if it looks awesome.
We saw a decent peek at the game, which comes from the creator of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, when it was first announced. Now comes some more gameplay footage out of E3 2014, as well as the introduction of the second monster, Kraken.
You can check out some new Evolve gameplay as well as the Kraken reveal trailer below.
Multiplayer and co-op gaming is just as popular as ever, and so game makers must figure out fresh and exciting new ways to build on that popularity.
One such game that seeks to deliver that unique experience and is getting a lot of buzz is titled Evolve. Various video game reporters were able to get their hands on the game recently, and some very intriguing information is coming out. Basically, the game is designed as a five-person cooperative multiplayer experience where players try to hunt and kill a vicious monster. The catch? Only four of you or your friends will be hunting the monster…the 5th player IS the monster.
