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.

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

Evolve's launch trailer means hunting season's open

Some hunt for sport. Others hunt for sustenance. And, in the case of Evolve, everyone hunts because the other side is doing their damnedest to kill you. However, just because the hunt's starting today, it doesn't mean that w...more

Review in Progress: Evolve

If you didn't know Turtle Rock Studios was the brains behind 2008's Left 4 Dead, you could probably guess as much after a few hours with its latest game, Evolve. The zombies might be gone in favor of giant monsters and lethal...more

Evolve's live-action trailer is just teens playing hide and seek
