First look at Turtle Rock's new FPS Evolve

EvolveFirst look at Turtle Rock's new FPS Evolve photo



Coming from the people who worked on Left 4 Dead, Evolve sounds promising as a multiplayer concept. We've heard about the game's first creature, Goliath (as shown above), who can evolve to grow in size and must take on four hunters, each with their own specialties.

Today, Game Informer posted the first screenshots of the game for non-subscribers and yep, I definitely want to play as the giant alien. It's difficult to get a true sense of what Evolve actually looks like here, so I'm hopeful Turtle Rock Studios won't sit on gameplay footage for too long.

As a fan of multiplayer modes in which each player and/or team has distinct abilities and objectives, Evolve is sounding like it could be the next major game on that front. Unless Valve decides to start talking about Left 4 Dead 3 all of a sudden.

Some metal bands, not the Castle Crashers devs, play Evolve DLC

A video with a misleading title led me to accidentally watch an Evolve DLC video. "Behemoth plays Behemoth" is less Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp, and more metal bands I've never heard of. But, if you're looking for fantastic insight and well-thought-out critique such as "I loved killing them; they were pissing me off," and "It's pretty much like being on-stage," then do I ever have the video for you.more

Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing

It's great to see free maps in a multiplayer-centric game like Evolve, but -- there just had to be a but -- timed platform exclusivity? Considerably less good. When the maps Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry debut on M...more

Evolve is getting a free 'Observer Mode,' I'm surprised it's not DLC

I've been playing Evolve off-and-on for the past few weeks, and I have to say I agree with Nic's middling review. I mean, I saw the warning signs very early after having a string of very boring matches, but I decided to...more

Review: Evolve

Trying to pin down my exact thoughts on Evolve has been trickier than pinning down any kind of prey the game has thrown at me. I was cautious with my initial impressions of the game earlier this week, noting an uneven play ex...more
