Happy Hunting! First trailer for Evolve
Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios has released a first trailer for Evolve. Evolve pits four players against a single player-controlled giant monster:
While the hunters will play the game from the first-person perspective, the player controlling the monster will play in the third-person. True to the title, the monster will be able to evolve and grow in size by devouring the corpses of players and fauna and forming a cocoon.
There are four kinds of hunters: assault (basic firepower), medic (who can heal their team mates), support (who can become invisible, deploy shields, and call in airstrikes), and trapper (who can, among other things, drop a dome that temporarily traps the monster). All four types will be needed to defeat the beast, making co-op extremely important.
It sounds like Turtle Rock is making a very interesting new game. It should be released later this year for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
