Evolve Seems Like A Glorious, Terrifying Masterpiece

Evolve Seems Like A Glorious, Terrifying Masterpiece

I don’t usually allow myself to get too hyped up on a game. It generally leads to me being really bitter about the end product (Colonial Marines, Too Human, etc). However, there’s something about Evolve’s concept, and idea that makes me want to hype it up, but also in the back of mind I have a feeling it will be phenomenal.

Plus, it does comes from Turtle Rock Studios, the lads behind Left 4 Dead. For those of you unfamiliar about Evolve and what the whole game is about I’ve pulled this little tid-bit from their site to sort of summarize the game in general.

In a savage world of man vs nature, are you the hunter or the hunted?  The creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, bring you Evolve, the next generation of multiplayer shooters where four hunters faceoff against a single, player-controlled monster. Stalk your prey, execute your attack and prove you are the apex predator in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches.

 

It’s fun to imagine what kind of mayhem we expect when the game launches later this fall. Plus, the devs talk about carnivorous plants in the environment that will also play some role in the dangers players will encounter while being hunted, or doing the hunting themselves. For me, that just screams awesome. Makes the levels feel more dynamic, and could quite possibly spice up the gameplay every so often. That, and seeing one of your buddies get chomped by a plant would be beyond hilarious.

These types of games really catch my eye. Things need to change up the whole “FPS” scene and games like Titanfall, and Evolve seem to be doing just that. Sure, Evolve won’t be launching until Fall 2014, but I’m sure the wait will be well worth it and quite possibly one of the best experiences we’ll get in 2014. Not to mention, it does seem like a worthy game to usher in/close out the first year of the new consoles.

You’ll be able to expect the game to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this Fall. With a neat pre-order bonus for people who are into the whole incentive, and pre-ordering business.

Below are some nice videos you can watch that should give you a little more information regarding Evolve, and what you can expect when the game launches this year. That being said, the box-art was also revealed a few days back and I have to say I’m really intrigued by it. Nothing too over-the-top, and it captures a sort of mysterious feel to it. Plus, it just brings me waves of memories and nostalgia of Jurassic Park with that massive foot-print.
