Evolve is a new co-op game from the creators of the famous Left 4 Dead series, Turtle Rock. It’s a 4 vs 1 shooter that sets a team of humans out to hunt a player controller monster.
These hunts will take place in large environments populated with AI wildlife. The player controlling the monster will leave tracks, along other visual and sound cues for the hunter team to follow. It’s unclear whether these will be intentionally used as a lure or uncontrollable ‘tells’. The monster player will also be able to eat other animals to grow in size and power while having their own objectives which can be completed to win.
The hunter team consists of Assault (basic grunt), Medics (health boosts), Support (power ups and shields) and Trappers (containment). Players will only be able to revive three times before then it’s game over. Both characters and items can be upgraded. There’s no mention yet of monster classes or types.
Hunt mode will be joined by other as yet unannounced games.
