The folks at Turtle Rock who played a part in bringing Left4Dead to the masses are back with a game for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC this fall. It’s a co-op competitive shooter that pits four people against one monster who can evolve throughout the match. In this sense, it’s a bit like a Pilot facing a Titan in Titanfall, but with more shifts in the giant character.
The Hunt mode uses this four Davids versus one Goliath mentality, only with four classes for the smaller characters. Trappers, Support, Assault, and Medic classes are available and like a JRPG, you need to use each class wisely to survive. Co-operation is key to make sure everyone’s on the same page, and failing to be an ally will result in a swift demise.
The Hunt mode is just one of the game’s available play types, although no elaboration was made as to just what the other modes will be. With Turtle Rock’s pedigree and a fresh concept to work with, every indication is that Evolve is going to be a game to keep an eye on for 2014.
