Watch Evolve’s intro cinematic

Evolve is one of my most anticipated games for this year. Releasing 10 February, it promises ridiculously fun action, cool asymmetrical multiplayer and the ability to play the whole thing offline. I got to play the game alone for an entire afternoon in December, and now you can see more of what I loved.

Here’s the intro cinematic that shows off the various characters and gets you amped for the action.

The premise behind the evacuation campaign is simple – you’ve got five days until evac and need to rescue as many people as possible by killing off the monsters so that all the civilians can get to safety. But with various game modes, multiple combinations of characters, monsters and map perks, it becomes a unique situation each and every time. I can totally see myself forcing the community to play with me once the game is released – and we don’t have long to wait now.

Evolve has gone Gold, which means that discs are being printed and shipped, not like going gold in the musical sense. So we know the game is really coming in only a few short weeks. Those of you on Xbox One can try to jump into the Open Beta on 15 January, and there are limited technical tests on PC and PS4 from 16 January for those who were involved in last year’s Big Alpha.

I will be patiently waiting for the final game release before I get to play. Then I will play offline for ages, hone my technique and then annihilate you all. Or, you know, be awful at the game and get destroyed but still have a fun time. Either way. As a reminder, here’s my favorite monster who I got to play with:

    I will be perfectly honest, I have zero hype for this game, is it one of those cases that when you play it it all clicks?

      I think so. I remember not paying too much attention to it until I got to play a build early last year. Since then I’ve been sold.

          It’s a lot more open on the Xbox One. The beta for PC and PS4 requires previous Alpha participation as far as I know ๐Ÿ™

      Yeah, i agreed with @Alessandro_Lazygamer:disqus – I had zero hype until I played it. Once you get a feel for the game, it is totally addictive.

      There is something about this game that has me intrigued!! I would have loved to get in on the Alpha or Beta, but that ship has sailed it would seem!! So now I will have to decide without playing the game, and that is tough with a game like this!!

            Nah, that dude looks way too serious for nonsense like that. He looks like he’s singing something soulful, deep and meaningful. Most likely he’s singing “Anaconda” XD ;P

      I’ll take the sniper…. I’ll camp somewhere safe and be empowered by the rage of my compatriots as I single handedly fail to heal or revive anyone….

    I dunno why, but I’m still not sold on this game… Maybe I need some hands-on time with it? I’ve watched a few gameplay vids and, to be honest, it looks good (graphically), but it just doesn’t speak to me… I don’t find myself wanting to play it. Maybe it’s just me…

      I would have loved to play the Alpha or Beta, but alas we in Africa was excluded and I didn’t feel like opening up a US account to play it!! So now I am on the fence where if it was good I would have pre ordered….

    Don’t spend all of your time playing solo Zoe. I’m keen to play with and against a lot of people from the lazy gamer community. Really excited for this and the upcoming beta. The beta is also open to people that own Bioshock infinite and/or Left for Dead.

    Hope to see a whole bunch of people going through the motions next weekend.
