Evolve was a definite stand-out at this year’s rAge Expo. There wasn’t once where I walked past the stand and didn’t see a massive line around it, even before the doors had opened to the public. People love hunting down a group of hunters as the monster, and adding to this beastly roster is exactly how Turtle Rock is going to keep the game alive.
Evolve is only out in February, but there’s already a “Monster Expansion Pack” that you can order for additional content. The pack includes a new, Savage skin for my favourite monster so far, the Goliath. You can check it out below, in what looks like the most perfect hunter stalking game anyone will ever have.
The pack also includes access to an unannounced monster, which is how I think Turtle Rock will keep Evolve fresh. Considering it’s multiplayer only, Evolve will need constant game changers introduced. This keeps players learning and experimenting, and at the end of the day keeps them playing the game.
We’ve already seen a massive difference between the Kraken and Goliath. The Goliath is fast and brutish, while the Kraken demands slower, more thought out play in order to win. Turtle Rock has their hands full of putty here, with a ton of options open to them in terms of future beasties.
I certainly can’t wait to get my hands on it again. Did you give it a shot last weekend? Is it on your day-one buying list?
