Evolve

Postby Young Guy » Wed Jan 14, 2015 8:59 am

Surprised there isn't already a thread for this game.

Evolve is a game made by Turtle Rock Studios, the same guys who made Left 4 Dead. The game has 4v1 styled gameplay- four hunters vs one player controlled monster.

There's 4 hunter classes:
Assault. Deals the most damage to the monster
Trapper: Traps (duh) and tracks down the monster
Medic: Heals and revives teammates. Most of the medics can pierce the monster's armour and reveal weak points.
Support : The most important class. Can shield and buff teammates.

There's 4 playable monsters so far (and talks of a fifth one as DLC).
Goliath, Kraken, Wraith and Behemoth. Each one plays differently. Monster gain energy on their "evolve meter" by eating wildlife. When the meter reaches the top, the monster can evolve which alters their appearance, speed, size and damage. Stage 3 is the maximum stage.

As well as killing each other, there are different objectives depending on which mode you're playing.

I'm getting this game for the PS4, what are you guys' thoughts?

This game, and No Mans Sky, are why I am buying a PS4.

They look amazing.

I will most likely play as Goliath most of the time when playing as the monster.

Since I preordered the game awhile back I got into the open Alpha and the game was a blast. I'm not normally a fan on online only games but this one was great. Looking forward to the open beta tomorrow and this weekend.

The game can be played online as well as offline with AI bots. During an online match, if a player leaves the game then a bot will take control of their character.

I checked out some vids of this - the premise is solid and quite unique compared to typical shooters. I might have to pick this up.

I've been playing a few beta multiplayer games. Super fun, I'll definitely pick it up when it comes out.
Now that 80 is gone I want the Texans to become the 80s Pistons bad boys. Every team in the league hates us because we beat the skreeonk out of them, play dirty, embrace the villain role. I want to truly become Patriots south with a more pissed off defense. I'm talking when tbe Rock turned heel. I want kids crying in front of their TVs while Swag poses over broken prettyboy quarterbacks."G-g-get up, Foles. Please get up?"

4th tier hunters have been teased!
I'm guessing the guy with the bird is the trapper. I wonder if the bird will act like a fifth player similar to Daisy.

Instantly fell in love with this game when I heard it was being released. If I buy any of the next gen consoles this game is definitely among the first I buy with it.

I remember seeing a video about it. I think they couldn't do it because they could have a monster going underground like all the time.
That fella that still exists for whatever reason.

That could easily be avoided given the right imagination.

-give the monster a burrowing energy meter. Once the meter emptys, the monster comes up. The meter could last longer the bigger the monster gets.

-give the trapper (or someone else) a special mine weapon thst has a long range, so when the monster appears under ground in the general area of the mine, it's injured and comes up.

- make the monsters movement burrowing, but it's stationary position, and attacks are all surfaced.

It's a really cool monster, I would love to see it in game some day.

Actually, there's 2 reasons why it was scrapped:
1. They planned on making him slither around the map. They didn't have the technology at the time.
2.Kinda a shitty reason but they wanted their monsters to have "human elements".

Admittedly, I agree. There's a plethora of pre-order expansions e.g. Monster expansion, Exterminator weapons pack, PC monster race, deluxe digital edition, hunter expansion pack, etc

And $15 for ONE monster is Jew level of greed. And the 4th tier hunters cost $7.50, or something, EACH!

The maps and modes will be free so that's cool I guess.
