Evolve fourth monster and digital versions revealed

Evolve behemoth

We knew a fourth monster was coming and it would only be available to those who pre-order or buy extra DLC later. But he has emerged in the wild and he’s a juggernaut, baby. Similarly massive are the digital versions of the game with all kinds of cool extras, including a “PC Monster Race” edition.

First up, check out Behemoth.

Here’s your non-YouTube link for those who need it.

According to Turtle Rock, Behemoth requires a whole different style of play. He’s the largest monster in Evolve, and the largest monster that there will ever be in the game. How big is he? So big that he can’t jump – he moves by rolling around the landscape like a juggernaut. Sure, he can climb, but slowly, making him an easy target. Sounds like it’s best to just roll around and crush everyone. Here are his abilities:

  • Lava Bombs: Effective at short and long range, these mortar bombs shatter into fragments and continue to burn the area around them, including any Hunters who find themselves in the damage radius.
  • Rock Wall: Creates a large, semi-circular rock structure that either traps victims inside with Behemoth, or locks him away from attackers.
  • Tongue Grab: Behemoth uses his harpoon-like tongue to snatch a distant target and pull it into melee.
  • Fissure: A wave of destruction blasts out of Behemoth, fracturing the terrain and scalding and stunning everything in its path.

I can already feel the combinations – imagine doing a Tongue Grab on the medic to separate her from the pack and then trapping her with Rock Wall making the Lava Bombs and Fissure absolutely annihilate her. Oh what a plan!

Behemoth comes free if you pre-order the game, but there are a bunch of different versions to choose from. Obviously, 2K has a special relationship with Xbox for this release, so most of the details are about Xbox One versions, but there is some extra news for PC, too.

The full game will cost $60 in the US of A and contains the game as well as the monster expansion pack (if bought before launch). However, the digital deluxe version ($80) also includes the Hunters Seasons Pass which has four brand new hunters as well as exclusive Monster skins. I can tell you now, those Magma skins are ridiculously sexy and would be my skin of choice. Seeing as the season pass runs at $25, it’s a $5 saving for grabbing the digital deluxe version

My favorite, though, is The Evolve PC Monster Race Edition.

This is for the gamer that is planning for the future and wants to save big bucks, right now. This version of the game jams in everything mentioned above: The Fourth Monster, Behemoth (when it’s available after launch), the Hunters Season Pass (the next four Hunters are yours as they become available after launch) and the Magma Monster skins. On top of that, this version locks you in for the Unannounced FIFTH Monster as well as the FIFTH and SIXTH DLC Hunters.

But I love the way that they say this part: “Four Monster Skins that are exclusively available for PC in this edition for 30 days. Because you are Monster Race. And you deserve bragging rights.” Always nice to see some extra loving for the PC Monster Race. Of course, that version will set you back $100, so you’d better be planning on playing this game to death to get your money’s worth. Still, cool to get all the unannounced stuff, too.

I’m starting to wonder if I should pre-order Evolve. Even if I play offline for the first week or so while they sort out servers, at least then my hunters and monsters will be totally unlocked and powered up, making me a monster in multiplayer.

    So you just shoot at a monster with 3 other people or 3 other bots. Sounds fucking boring. Then if you don’t pre-order you only get 3 monsters to shoot at. I am guessing that the monsters will just be the same thing with a slightly different skin. You can’t even buy this game on PC to try out because then you stuck with this shit, can’t sell it.
    That’s about it. All for R800. Oh you got to be fucking kidding me. This shitty 4v1 mode game going for R800. lol. At least you console people can sell this shit after a day and get some of your money back. PC version is R500 down the drain.

    Don’t Support DRM. The Witcher 3 is coming.

        A shitty multiplayer game from a south african point of view will not stand the test of time and will lag. I doubt there will even be a lot of south africans playing this game from the get go.
        For R800 Evolve is a waste of money.

            I cannot wait for Witcher 3 to come out, for the SOLE purpose of you having something else to talk about other than that fckn game to come out, but you will probably over obsess on your “don’t support DRM” campaign, but then again, you will probably be so obsessed with Withcer 3, that you forget about posting.

            You don’t like Evolve? WHO GIVES A FUCK! The game looks awesome to ME!
            Therefore I WILL buy it.

            I don’t hate people I haven’t met.

            But you are tedious, obvious and repetitive, Personally I think you’ve lost the plot with your DRM campaign, especially when it’s now doing the opposite of your intent (Unless that was the intent from the start).

            But carry on.

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 13:45

            Oh suck the fun right out of it.

            I’m not on a DRM campaign. When I started doing the, Don’t Support DRM, thing, it was about giving reason to comment. Or I could just not comment at all.

            And why do you care what I do or say. Freedom of expression even if it’s tedious, obvious and repetitive. Or do you want to DRM my freedom of expression where I can’t say, fuck Evolve it’s going to be a shit game, in fear of someone liking the game getting upset. Fuck that.

            My comments should never be taken seriously. I have said this before. I will say fucking anything. Make my comment and then try to deal with the backlash. I like to work on my debate but even then I will say anything to work on certain points and reactions.

            But I do try not to discourage peoples comments and opinions. I am not talking about replies to my shit but the comments and opinions that people take the time to write.

            The more points of views to a topic the better. I’m sorry you feel I am tedious, obvious and repetitive, but I don’t make comments for you. I make comments for me. Plus the shit I say doesn’t even matter. So I don’t know why it matters to you.

            And yes I know it doesn’t matter to you and I can say whatever I like. And whatever else you going to reply.

          • Sageville

            January 14, 2015 at 15:16

            I will invoke freedom of expression as well, I now reserve my right to comment on your comments. You may ask me not to troll, but I will continue, just like you will.

            So let us carry on and deal with the consequences.

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 15:20

            Freedom of expression doesn’t give you the right to harass someone.

            January 14, 2015 at 15:59

            Replying to comments does not constitute harassment.

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 16:58

            replying just to say the opposite of what I had to say. No provocation from me towards you to merit that behaviour.

            When you keep on replying to me doing the same thing, it counts as harassment. I only know you because of you replying the opposite of what I had to say, whereby demeaning what I had to say. I don’t think I’ve ever done that to you. Don’t you do it to try and piss me off. I can’t remember your reasons. harassment sounds about right.

            What do you want from me?

          • Sageville

            January 15, 2015 at 00:10

            Consideration.

          • Ryanza

            January 15, 2015 at 08:03

            When I post a comment I feel I can say anything I want. Look at other posts if you want consideration. I’m not going to post something that will just be the same damn thing everybody else is saying. Why bother commenting then.

            When I reply to someone I try to be considered. Try to speak normally to that person. Well unless I’m trying to push certain topics. Most of my replies don’t contain, Don’t Support DRM and The Witcher 3 is coming.

            But just for you. If you don’t want me to post my typical shit comments, which I enjoy typing, in favour of comments blend in with the other comments. Then I’ll stop posting comments, just for you.

            DRM wins. The Witcher 3 fails.

          • Sageville

            January 15, 2015 at 09:36

            Do whatever you please, just consider some of us in our community.

            Essentially, I feel you are standing in a crowd with a bullhorn shouting “Don’t Support DRM and The Witcher 3 is coming.” at all of us, (and I will say most of your comments DO have that line included in some fashion, regardless of the actual article). Now, I’m that doosh in the crowd saying “STFU! You told us this already!”, which is my right. Both of us have the right to say what we are saying.

            So you don’t need to play the victim or feel persecuted, just consider that some of us (not all) don’t like being preached at in every article and I will therefore voice their displeasure on their behalf.

            Have a nice day fellow commentator.

            January 15, 2015 at 10:10

            Selective reading. Now a days i’ve been using, Don’t Support DRM, The Witcher 3 is coming, as like a signature at the bottom of my comments.
            Bullhorn shouting. Extreme much. Don’t blame me if you only focus on one line at the bottom of my comments.
            What I said was that my comments have Don’t Support DRM but my replies mostly don’t. Unlike not that I have to explain it.
            My comments don’t just contain Don’t Support DRM. But fuck. I don’t want to deal with this kak anymore. My shitty comments don’t even matter.
            I don’t troll peoples comments. I don’t label people. I don’t reply the opposite to what people comment. I usually stay out of peoples business, unless it’s under my comments.
            I miss the days when I could just type my shit and no1 gave a fuck.
            I guess the message from the “community” is to fuck off.

            South Africa is not being catered for online play. I would go bonkers too if i have to pay R800 for a game ill have a ping of 200+. You pay a premium price to get a premium service not a damned sub par service. The game is ok I played the beta, it’s nothing to write home about.

            I’m still not entirely sure where this R800 price thing comes from. R700 on steam, yeah – but R500 from local retailers. Regardless of how you feel about the game, I feel it’s important to get the pricing right at least x_x

            January 14, 2015 at 10:15

            Fair, though it’s hardly the minimum point of entry, especially if one’s worried about price. I’m quite happy to skip any deluxe edition if it means a notably cheaper entry point – I’ll decide whether I’ll buy the DLC when it comes out.

          • HairyEwok

            January 14, 2015 at 10:17

            There’s no real choosing here. They are kindly forcing you to buy the DLC or else you wont have a proper full game with all the tinkers and toys.

      After having played this game, quite a bit, this is way higher on my excitement list than the Witcher3. I’m not saying the Witcher 3 looks bad or anything, I’m just saying that this game is quite possibly the most fun I’ve ever had playing a game with mates before. Cannot freaking wait for it.

      Also, reading your comment above makes me think that you don’t actually know anything about the game. The monsters are very different to each other. But I guess in your world it is ok to spew our crap from ignorance and not have people talk sense and give praise from experience. All hail RyanZA…

            but they don’t change the dynamic of the game that much. Still end up doing the same shit for hours. How long will it take for the same shit to get boring. With Evolve, I’m guessing not that long.

          • DarthZA

            January 14, 2015 at 10:30

            But they do, quite a bit. And there are multiple game modes as well. But I kinda understand what you’re saying. It is like the Witcher, it gets really boring after around 4 hours, the dynamic doesn’t really change, you’re doing the same thing over and over again really. And all your enemies are AI controlled, so they don’t act completely different from hour to hour trying new and crazy things…. actually, it isn’t anything like the Witcher..

            I must have played each of Left 4 Dead’s campaigns over 20 times. Maybe even double that, we played it weekly for years. This game, from the games I have played, has shown me that it will last a lot longer than Left 4 Dead did.

            Evolve is no Left 4 Dead. Well I’m sure it will lag like Left 4 Dead.

I think you are by far the most annoying person I have seen online and that says a LOT. I mean do you even play games since every game to you is crap and u never even tried 99% of it . Get a life!!

            Let’s see. Far cry 4. Mordor. Dark souls 2. Borderlands. Tropico 5. Civ. And blah blah blah.
            Witcher 2. Witcher 1. Sim City 4. Theme Hospital. Transport Tycoon.
            Banished I liked. DRM-Free too.

            It’s always funny to me to see the impression people get about me based on opinions made just so I can say, Don’t Support DRM. The Witcher 3 is coming. Plus most of the games in 2014 was just plain shit.

            It’s just that it’s gonna get harder and harder to find game without some form of DRM. but maybe if Witcher 3 sell millions and millions day one other publishers will take notice and follow suite.

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 11:51

            More publishers are going to set up their own DRM clients. Then you will find drm on top of drm on top of drm.
            I think a change will only come once consoles get the full online only heavy 24 hours check ins. But gamers are complacent people. So it must get much worse (gaming industry crash) before we will see any change.

            So just support those who publish games with no DRM at retail and digitally.

        Don’t moan when the DRM system takes away your rights to re-install a game. And yes there is such a DRM that limits you to how much you are allowed to install a game, when that limits reached you have to buy yet another copy of the game. Example of this is Red Alert 3.

            CD Projek knows the risk they are running, but I think the preorders has already made them their money back. Besides I would like to hear of any game on PC that has not yet been pirated.

            The WItcher 3 is going to see high piracy numbers. But not because of no DRM but because it will most likely be a good fucking game.

            So what will translate from high piracy numbers.
            1 – More sales.
            2 – More sales for years to come.
            3 – More awareness about CD Projekt RED.
            4 – More awareness about Cyberpunk 2077.
            5 – More pre-orders for Cyberpunk 2077.
            6 – repeat.

            That is the benefits to piracy. Piracy doesn’t = a lost sale because that sale would not have been there in the 1st place.

            The Witcher 2 saw high piracy numbers. Today the Witcher games has over 8 million copies sold. More awareness of the developer. More pre-orders for the Witcher 3. Faster selling rate than the Witcher 2.

            When Cyberpunk 2077 is near release I’ll update this sentiment with the new data.

            What Neil Gaiman said is what the study on piracy found out later. So now the numbers back his words.

            Well thank you Neil for my free game then, much appreciated! (I swear if my copy of the game is pixelated or I get stuck in a lift I’ll be very pissed!!)

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 14:29

            If that free game is the best fucking game you have ever played. I guarantee that you will buy that game, at some point, and will look forward to the next games from that developer.

            You should take on board what these people have to say and what the studies have found out. Don’t be erroneous about DRM and piracy. Who taught you that piracy is the same as stealing a car? The film industry. Don’t be the film industry’s bitch.

          • Pieter Kruger

            January 14, 2015 at 14:39

            Why would I buy that game if my “free” game is exactly the same without any limitations and I won’t even have to bother with downloading a crack etc.? Anyway, they very well know that a huge portion of their sales (consoles) will have built in DRM surely?

          • Ryanza

            January 14, 2015 at 14:46

            Why. Because a pirated game doesn’t give you that feeling of owning the game. When you find something good, that appeals to you, you want to buy and own it. So that it’s yours to enjoy for years to come.

            DRM gives you that same feeling of not owning the product.

            So in that regard, DRM and piracy is the same thing. Just one costs you money to not own it.

    Is the $60 version really a full game when you get more content for $80 and even more for $100?They wont bring out a $120 version because “half a game” memes will circle the internet. My excitement for this game has lessened quite a bit.

            or you get the opening level at the low price, the rest of the game is DLC.

      Basically, you’re paying for the upcoming DLC up front at discount. I believe you can still play with people who have and use the DLC without having it yourself.

      That all said, steam is notoriously more expensive than local retail. I tend to save around R150 buying from Takealot rather than steam, and then registering it on steam. Actually, checking Takealot now, it’s R200 cheaper than on steam (R500, compared to the R700 you’ll pay for it on steam).

        Yeah BT Games are usually cheaper than the PSN store as well, plus I can trade in games. I still feel that most DLC is content cut from the game to make a extra buck down the line. Like the zombie mode in COD:AW being DLC all of a sudden.

    Soon enough every car in every car game will be “DLC”. Tracks, driving physics and stat-tracking are the only things you’ll pay for “out-the-box” (extra tracks & ragdoll physics available at additional costs)… There will be ‘budget’ cars available for you to start off with, but you’ll need a credit card for a Ferrarri. Basically the richer you are the more you’ll have access to and chance of success.

    So it’s much like the real world… The whole point of this is to get as much money from the consumer as possible, but I can’t understand why we allow these trends so easily. Breaking a full game in to separate sell pieces is just milking and stretching out the experience. You’ll still get the same flavour from one Chappie, no matter how much you stretch it.

    Brand loyalty influencing the games we buy will soon become a real thing, much like a Nike vs Reebok type-scenario. However, fragmenting and compartmentalizing a single product to gain additional profit is not something we should have to get used to. Most sensible folk are finding it hard to accept this change…

        Thanks. just a theory but I don’t think I’m too far off the mark.

        While I agree with you somewhat, I don’t think it’s too big a wave. I think the majority of those with the financial means – and subsequent influence – don’t actively participate in this particular discourse. These people are the parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles of all the casual gamers (if not “casuals” themselves).

        This massive chunk of the market (profits-wise) is the biggest reason for games like the infamous Dungeon Keeper. I can’t really blame EA for thinking people would accept a game like that after all the minor changes we’ve already allowed paywalls, microtransactions, pre-orders with no guarantee (wtf), etc

        These casual gamers struggle with suppressing hype and relish instant gratification. While we all have these problems, not everyone can slap a R800 band-aid on at the drop of a hat. This new gen barely has a concept of what you or I define a proper game… and that’s just a shame.
