Evolve is a ferocious game of hide and seek in this TV spot

Wraith evolve

I always used to have to mix things up with Hide and Seek as a kid. While I loved the hiding, I always thought the game was missing something. Evolve certainly shows what’s missing and how to make it something much more thrilling in a new TV spot.

Here is the Ready or Not video.

For those of you who want the excitement but don’t get YouTube, here’s a link just for you.

More than any other video of gameplay, features and modes, I think that this captures the feeling of the game. The monster is absolutely formidable, but at the start of the game it is still weak and needs to hide from the hunters. Only once it’s fully evolved can it confidently take out the hunters. In many ways, the start of the game is like a high-pressure game of hide-and-seek as the monster needs to feed, run, hide and evolve. Of course, when playing with friends, it’s even more fun as you work together, discuss possible strategies and try to outwit your opponent. There will still be the inevitable confrontation when the monster must prove his prowess or be defeated. It’s exciting and climactic, like every boss battle that you’ve ever enjoyed in a game, only more adaptive than any AI could ever be – playing against a human boss is a truly different experience and is what makes the game for me.

Evolve releases early next week. Reviews will also only drop then, so let’s hope that all the beta testing and open availability of the game have ensured that it’s as polished and bug-free as promised. I will definitely be playing tons of this game… I’m just curious if that’s still the case by the time E3 rolls around again.

    I really am trying not to get too excited about Evolve, not that it’s working, until after I’ve seen a few comprehensive reviews from this side of the world to see if the MP works…

      I’m interested to see if their DLC concept will work, I love the idea of getting new maps for free, just concerned the DLC will be pay-to-win.

      Either way, 4 days till release and I’m excited to give it a go…hope it has legs.

        All the hunters and monsters have their own play style. I really wouldn’t say one stands above the other, each has it’s own role with corresponding advantages and disadvantages. Turtle Rock have been very clear about being meticulous about having a good balance. For example the wraith has been changed after the closed beta technical tests. They saw the win ratio being above 70% for wraith players and reworked a few abilities i.e. warp now disables decoy.

        I certainly have favourites in each class but then my friends had their own which I completely disagree with. Go have a look at the website and see the great info graphics they have.

    For a second I thought it was a new movie like Hunger games or Maze runner

          I think your ribcage and the organs it protects are a higher priority.
          Life threatening and all that you know.

    I want the excitement but the internet here is way to slow to watch any form of internet based video.

    Pity about the ridiculous price tag.
