Turtle Rock co-founder Chris Ashton has some long term goals for Evolve, which includes supporting it with DLC "more so than any game ever before," he told OXM.

"You know, in Left 4 Dead we could make new environments, but we really didn't have a structure there to make new characters or zombie types, so we were pretty limited on what we could do, DLC-wise. But with Evolve... we made these modular pieces - the way the whole game fits together means we can make new maps, new environment types, new wildlife, new monsters and hunters, and all of that stuff just plugs into the game."

Of course, people are liable to be nervous about a game built for DLC in the climate of $10 map packs and incomplete feeling products. "We're definitely looking to see how the community reacts," Ashton said. "It's designed to have a long life - hopefully that works and we get to try a bunch of crazy things with the community after release. As long as people are into it and the DLC does reasonably well, then we'd like to keep making more. At the end of the day, it's a business and it has to make sense, but we believe that we've built a game that does support that really well - more so than any game ever before."

Go ahead and 3D print these Evolve figures, you early adopter

I have no idea what people with 3D printers do. Do they ever print more 3D printers? I'd probably print statues of myself because I'm extremely vain like that. I'd give one to all my neighbors, because I assume that they all...more

Evolve's new hunters video shows how the new hunters do their hunting

I spent some undisclosed amount of time writing up a preview about the changes that were made to Evolve since the last time that we saw it, and then Turtle Rock Studios went ahead and made a video, effectively rendering my words obsolete. Who reads when picture movies can be beamed into your eyes with little to no effort? Jerks.more

Evolve is making advances toward infinite replayability

Evolve, the asymmetrical four-versus-one multiplayer game from Turtle Rock Studios, is built around the titular premise of growing, becoming stronger, (dare I say it?) evolving. In game, this is called "staging up." As the mo...more

Evolve impressions: How did we feel about the Kangaroos?

A couple of weeks ago, Hamza and I got a chance to screw around in Turtle Rock and 2K's Evolve. Hamza wrote up his thoughts on the game right here, and I got to interview one of the developers about the game. But how did Hamza and I really feel? Well, watch the dang video.more

We can't see the new Doom yet, but it sounds like a return to form

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ...more
