Official Playstation Magazine is showing off some gameplay of Turtle Rock Studios’ newest project, EVOLVE, and it will be on the cover of this month’s issue. It is looking quite amazing, if I do say so myself.
The video shows off a 5 player co-op multiplayer game where it’s 4 on 1, humans vs monster. The humans have to fight hordes of npc monsters and track the Goliath (5th player). Meanwhile, the Goliath gets a 30 sec head-start from the humans and has to hunt for monsters to eat, helping him evolve. The Goliath has 3 evolutions. When he evolves, he gains special abilities such as breathing fire, throwing rocks, and a charge and leap attack.
The 4 humans have 4 different classes. Assault focuses on damage, medics heal, support augments the abilities of everyone else, and the trapper actually hunts down the Goliath, slowing him down.
Evolve looks intense. To play as the “Final Boss” in the game is truly beast. The Goliath looks like a mutated Bowser on steroids at level 3. The dynamic of the Goliath from first being the prey to evolving to the predator is game changer. I cannot wait to play this game myself and go from being the hunted to the hunter.
Evolve will release on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
