The upcoming shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead is now available for pre-order, as the first details come directly from Turtle Rock Studios and 2K Games. Available this autumn for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Evolve blends cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences.
In Evolve, Four hunters face off against a single, player-controlled monster. Set on an alien planet in the distant future, gamers hunt their prey in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches. Players experience Evolve as a first-person shooter when playing cooperatively as the four hunters, while they control the monster in the third-person perspective, providing a gameplay experience unique to Evolve.
In a press release accompanying the announcement of pre-order bonuses for the game, Turtle Rock’s Chris Ashton touts the game’s unique co-op vs. lone wolf gameplay formula. He claims that it creates “the most intense multiplayer matches we’ve ever experienced.”
Those who pre-order the game from participating retailers will be rewarded with the Monster Expansion Pack, which includes the Savage Goliath skin at launch and a new monster character as soon as it becomes available after Evolve is released.
Look for more details as we head towards the fall release of Evolve on the Xbox One and PS4. If you’re already sold on the new game, pre-orders can be found here.
