Have a look at Evolve in action!

1 min read

The newest game from the people who brought you Left 4 Dead sounds a heck of a lot like Left 4 Dead, only with bizarre mutant monsters in it instead of zombies. The big difference here is that it’s a 5 player game; 4 playing together as soldiers, while one plays as a great big monster boss. It sounds neat…and it looks just as good.

Unlike Left 4 Dead, this one’s class based, and you’ll have to deploy using a full complement of Medic, Assault, Support and Trapper. Teamwork and communication are incredibly crucial, or you’ll find yourselves all being eaten. Each class will be privy to its own primary weapons, and bolstered by a number of gadgets that’ll all get unlocked through progress. It’s got a dash of verticality to it, thanks to jetpacks, which always make games better. Always.

And from those who’ve played the game, it sounds like it’s going to be quite a strategic affair; the monsters can use stealth, trap and route soldiers, while the soldiers can hold choke points in the map to keep the creature away from support.

You’ll be able to play the thing offline with bots if you so choose, or take it to the internet and play online. Unfortunately, there’s no split-screen, so you’ll need a system per player.  Speaking of systems, Evolve will be available for PC and the new consoles only, leaving the Xbox 360 and PS3 out of this equation.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Looks nice, love the song too. Original song is below

    • RinceandLeSIGH

      Tune. But god awful video 😉

      • Hammersteyn

    • Grant Hancock

      Kiff song … know it from GTA:SA 🙂

      • Hammersteyn

        me too. thats how I knew it

        • Grant Hancock

          Cool 🙂 … man the impact of GTA:SA still amazes me

    • Fantastic song! For those that are curious, the cover in the video is sung by Lissie, which is pretty freaking cool as well 😀

      • Hammersteyn

        I first heard it in Gta San Andreas

    • Kensei Seraph Moe Ninja

      I actually wanted to ask if anyone knew what video it was.
      Thanks for this.

      • Hammersteyn

        No worries 🙂

  • RinceandLeSIGH

    Only on PC? So that’s what? 3% of gamers out there? Trololo!

    • Unavengedavo

      Well the Master race is very exclusive…

      • RinceandLeSIGH

        Teheheh. Was referring to the whole Rockstar thing 😉

    • And PS4 and Xbox One!

    • Hammersteyn


  • Robert Hart

    Turtlerock studios dont really make good games. They are sort of like Valves paper pushers. Fortunately Valve take over production once the game is release, and thats when all the great things begin to happen.

  • Devourer of Small Bunnies

    That looks so flipping rad

  • iAmWeasel

    I am next-gen.. my body is ready.. yeah baby!

    • Johan du Preez

      Whats next gen can you eat it ?

  • Johan du Preez

    This looks like its got potential.

  • Mark Treloar

    Reminds me of Borderlands

  • Rags

    [sarcasm]Oh its too bad its not 32v32, what an unambitious pile of outdated nonsense. It should at least have levolution and tanks! Because you know that would make it unique and next gen and stuff.[/]

    • iAmWeasel

      Titanfall groupie.

  • Johan Fourie

    Looks like awesomesauce. Also, it’s been quite a while since I’ve read the words “expansion pack”. Tsek, dlc, your’re not welcome here.
