I've been playing a lot of Evolve over the last week and the questions I hear are all the same: Are you tired of this game yet? Is it really repetitive? The answer to each is, simply, no and yes, respectively.
When you start playing Evolve, you'll probably suck. Even as you get better, you'll still run into players who also suck. It can be frustrating. So, let's skip the learning through trial by (sometimes literal) fire, and get ahead of the curve.
Some Evolve players' progress is being wiped when they attempt to try to access their game's data from a second console, myself included. It's not clear why yet, but you should probably avoid playing between consoles if you value your time.
If you're planning on grabbing Evolve when it launches tomorrow, you'll pretty much be getting a multiplayer experience similar in concept to Left 4 Dead where you can take on one of three monsters as one of 12 hunters (or vice versa). But it's a bit more complicated than that.
Evolve can be simplified in many ways, and you've probably heard them all before. It's a first-person shooter. It's like Left 4 Dead, four players banding together, but you're up against a Tank—played by a fifth player—each round. It's one big boss battle, over and over. But the details that go into the new game,…
"There's a lot of—for a lack of better words—politics in the games industry," the voice on the other end of my Skype call started. Pausing for several seconds before continuing, he elaborated, "This game of politics is influenced by outside forces and, in this case, the outside force was this outrage culture that's…
Yesterday I said that Evolve, one of my most anticipated titles this year, plays differently every time I get my hands on it. You can read all about why that is, but you can also just see it in action right here instead.
Evolve will release on October 21 this year for PC, Xbox One and PS4. 2K and Turtle Rock Studios also revealed four new playable hunters, which you can read my impressions of here.
I have played roughly six rounds of Evolve and it's been a different experience every time.
At PAX East last weekend, Team Kotaku went and played Evolve, the upcoming co-op shooter that pits a group of four hunters against one vicious monster. Yesterday, we talked about it. Here's that conversation.
Evolve survived the destruction of THQ one year ago and now the game is ready for a closeup. Game Informer's cover subject is the co-operative/competitive shooter, which sounds kinda like, yep, something from Left 4 Dead, for which Turtle Rock Studios is best known.
Turtle Rock Studios, the group responsible for the creation and much of the development of Left 4 Dead, has "got the band back together" after shifting away from Valve's ownership and will be releasing its next game for publisher THQ.
