Turtle Rock Studios made an appearance at Gamescom this year, revealing more content for their game in progress, Evolve. The monster revealed two months ago at E3, Kraken, has now gone up against the hunters in the newly revealed environment, the Distillery.
For those that do not know, Evolve is a “first person, third person, cooperative, competitive shooter”, as described by Chris Ashton (Co-found of Turtle Rock Studios). This game’s been in the works with Turtle Rock Studios for some time now, and they’ve been making the rounds since PAX East to show off their work.
Evolve is not only a visually fantastic looking game, but showcases some depth in the customization that can be done with the hunters and monsters. For example, all the roles of the hunters have to be filled. That means there needs to be one Assault, Medic, Trapper, and Support class, but which member of each type that ends up on the team is up to the players. Each respective member of each class has unique abilities that will change the team dynamic.
Just as cool, while the monster rampages through the environment feeding on whatever he happens upon, he.. well.. evolves. The monster actually changes the longer he survives and more he feeds, and the player is in control of its evolution. Once the monster has reached the moment it can evolve, the player gets to choose which abilities the monster will learn, and then can turn those abilities on the hunters. This means that the longer it takes the hunters to take down the monster, the stronger and more fearsome the monster can become!
Evolve will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam.
Of course, you can only learn so much about Evolve by just reading about it, check out the video of the hunters facing off with the Kraken in the Distillery to find out what it’s really all about:
