Evolve: New next-gen only FPS from Left 4 Dead creators (PS4, XO, PC; Feb. 2015)

Originally Posted by Official Xbox Magazine
OK, so 2K's decision to reveal its giant space monster game at the same time as Alien: Isolation may not have been especially wise, but Evolve from Turtle Rock does seem rather decent. Here's a host of intel on the Xbox One and 2014-bound shooter, scooped out of the new issue of Game Informer by our partners in notoriety at CVG. Oi, Tamoor! Your boy Shaun done good, mate.

2K Games has also released the game's box art, which features a giant footprint. This corresponds to hunting mechanics in the game - as one of four human hunters, you'll have to watch out for the trail of your massive alien adversary.
  • Turtle Rock has been working on Evolve for three years.
  • There will be a solo 'experience' in Evolve, though Turtle Rock is not yet willing to talk about it.
  • A studio spokesperson says Evolve will feature "very lush and large outdoor environments" with "a lot of AI wildlife"
  • The monster player will leave tracks for hunters to follow as well as other "visual and aural clues".
  • The monster player will be able to feed on wildlife in order to grow larger and more fearsome
  • The game is designed for 1-vs-4 multiplayer, though fewer than that can participate in a session, with AI filling out the team. Players can switch between AI characters.
  • The story of Evolve involves the settlement of humanity on distant planets. The biggest frontier planet is called Shear. Hunters are tasked with making these dangerous, alien-infested planets hospitable to colonists, though aliens of Shear have evolved rapidly during the course of humanity's presence.
  • While Hunt mode pits four human players against a human controlled monster until the death, the monster player can complete objectives in order to win.
  • Weapons have unlimited ammunition.
  • Hunters can only die and be revived three times before they're officially ousted from the game.
  • Classes include Assault, Medics, Support and Trappers. Assault focuses on aggression, Medics can provide health boosts to the team, Support can apply various power ups and shields to the team, while Trappers can contain the monsters.
  • Evolve will also boast a progression system for both characters and items.
  • In addition to Hunt mode, more modes will feature.
  • Evolve will be supported by post-launch content, but Turtle Rock stopped short of confirming DLC.
Who's getting it? I expect I'll take the plunge - I'm a huge fan of Left 4 Dead.


The Left 4 Dead games were some of my favorites from the past few years. I'm in.

Huge fan of Left 4 Dead so I can't wait to see more on this one. And since XBOX Magazine is not going to mention it:




and of course

Left 4 Dead is one of my most favorite titles ever (that and part 2). This is day one for me.

That just became my most anticipated release of the year. Pre-order complete.

I wasn't even thinking of this but the fact the Left 4 dead creators are behind this is good enough for me...love to see a new L4D series on the PS4 (played it on the 360)

Four-player co-op is right up my alley and be great if I see some on here grab it. Looks like a slightly futuristic Jurassic Park II which is pretty cool.

Well...that's a start. Sure...you won't have a monstrous sword to swing, able to "Prime" a 30 meter area and disintegrate living matter nor blaze thru levels invisible in minutes....but you do a get a neat jetpack!....plus kill a bunch of over-sized monsters with a rag-tag group of fuddy-duddies has-beens . What more can you ask for....don't answer; just think about it....

Left 4 Dead is probably the last time I really enjoyed playing an FPS. Definitely down for this.

Left 4 Dead was an amazing game, and I still prefer it greatly to the sequel. I barely played that, but I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing the first online.

I felt exactly the same way. Played the shit out of the original but never really clicked with the sequel. I think that might have been because it was harder to make it to the end of the levels. I just enjoyed it a lot less.

I wonder how this will be. The co-op hunters vs Goliath video shown here:


has me concerned that if I do something stupid and die, it'll fuck over my whole team. I don't want that sort of pressure on me when I play an online co-op game.

I got an invite to the Alpha for this on PC but never got the time to try it. Wonder if there were a lot of issues.
