Evolve will be identical on all three platforms

The only flame war Evolve wants

The dawn of the next-generation of consoles has brought about as much controversy as it has pleasure. If it’s not something to do with the framerate, it’s about the resolution, of which console the game was made for primarily and all the stuff that people didn’t really care about not too long ago. One of the more confusing debates sits around console and PC parity, and it’s one Evolve isn’t content on having.

Evolve is only two weeks away, which is just enough time to start thinking about what platform you’ll be picking it up on. If you’re still wondering which platform, between PC, Xbox One and PS4, will look the best, then you’re in luck. According to Turtle Rock producer Chloe Skew, Evolve will be identical on all three platforms – ignoring the performance differences they have from one another.

“But you know we do have parity between all three and I think that’s really helpful. You know it kind of silences that ‘Oh such and such is better’.”

Skew later says that turtle Rock would rather have people arguing about which characters are better, rather than having petty console wars over social media.

“Yeah, nobody needs that. It’s better to talk about which characters you like more.”

Parity is somewhat frowned upon, because I’m sure gamers everywhere don’t want to be told that their more expensive setup is only capable of playing a game as the less expensive one to their right. This is especially true for games on PC, and I’m quite disappointed that there won’t be any fancy options for me to push my new hardware with.

Although, with a game like Evolve, you should really be looking at the online experience over visuals if you have the choice. Thankfully all versions of the game are the same in this regard too, with console and PC both supporting Peer to Peer connections. That’s really going to help us locally, as Zoe already found out.

        Oh but you pay double or more for every single game you buy. 10 Console games = 1x PC that’ll outperform every console AND last 4 years. 3 more games and you can extend the life of that PC with a graphics update, for another 3 years.

        That’s one console lifespan, for the cost of 13 console games, but you get ALL the benefits of having a PC with superior hardware, scalability, and utility. And superior controls.

          If your games were superior like the consoles’ versions are, then you’d pay more, too. And not buy them for a dorrar on steam ;P hahahahahaha

    Also this doesn’t stop the ‘Oh such and such is better’ comments since we all know mouse + keyboard is better than controller for fps games.

          I actually like their approach to DLC. In other games you cant play with people if you don’t have the DLC, like in Destiny. Here they at least make is so you can play the same game, just can’t use the new characters or monsters yourself.

            Exactly right, I was almost sold on this. But it’s very clever from their part. Say you just buy the base game and no DLC. Every time you see a new hunter or a new monster a little seed gets planted and it will grow and grow the more you play with people that paid extra for the game until you decide to buy the DLC as well.

      Which is a valid argument, but that was a beta.
      Now imagine you come home with your brand new game, install, go to options to max the graphics and see that the max selectable resolution is well below what you’re used to as well as AA now only going to 2x.

        If you really enjoyed the game without the settings in beta is it really going to make that much of a difference? I didn’t hear anyone complain during the beta that the graphics were bad. In fact I heard people raving about it.

        Now if it ships and the graphics have been downgraded… Now that’s a different story all together

          I actually would. For a beta I would expect lag, frame rate drops and so forth.
          Also depends on how close the beta is to release.

          But the main point is, if they release the game and the resolution is sub par or there are frame drops it’s not on.

            Look, if the game comes out sub par to what it was or if it has sever frame drops and is terribly optomised then yeah. By all means, then people should absolutely moan
