About Evolve

From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve, the next generation of multiplayer shooters where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches. Play as the Monster to use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to kill your human enemies, or choose one of four Hunter classes (Assault, Trapper, Medic and Support) and team up to take down the beast on the planet Shear, where flora and fauna act as an adversary to man and monster alike. Level up to unlock new Hunter or Monster characters as well as upgrades, skins, and perks. Earn your infamy on the leaderboards and become the apex predator.

 

... (will fill more in here soon)

I have it installed already. I'll probably check it out tomorrow night, or Saturday at the latest. A couple of us have discussed the alpha in the NHL 14/15 thread. We should try to get a group of 5 together.

Don't think I'll be able to try it until the weekend, but willing to try it out. Co-Op shooters tend to be hit or miss with me though as I'm more of a competitive type of person. Looks good though, no question.

For those planning on playing this weekend, feel free to post your gamertag. Due to it being such a short alpha, it'd be good to have a list of others to play with. Gamertag: BeFlatLine.

How big of a DL is the Alpha?

 

I ended up with two codes so perfect that my buddy and I can both get in on it but was just curious of the size so I know how long I will be waiting to play it tonight after work haha

Yea it says on the start screen be careful we are experiencing heavy load..Be patient for your first match.

 

I'm ok with it. I know this is what they are doing it for. I have no problem taking a shower while all this goes on lol.

Haha, same here. You really have to play psychologically as the monster at least until you reach stage 2, apparently. I had no idea what I was doing in my first game and got trounced in 3:30.

Yeah, now that I know you HAVE to level up to Stage 2, it's a bit easier. I managed to take down 3 out of the 4 on the other team but I had such little health left that the trapper finally finished it off. Hell of a fight though. II'm really liking it so far.

Played a game as Maggie the trapper. Looks like a glorified game of hide n seek

I have played quite a few matches now after work and I must say I am thoroughly enjoying it. Primarily been playing as support and the monster and man is it fun.

 

Super satisfying as the monster to stalk your prey and then when you finally are feeling strong enough, take them down. I have won a couple matches as the Goliath. Some other guy I was playing with was like level 17 and had the Kraken unlocked somehow and just absolutely destroyed us with that thing. He agreed that it is way OP compared to the Goliath and I would have to agree. I got to level 10 and had I think 6 unlocks for my Goliath and still didnt get the Kraken so I wonder when it becomes available. I would love to try it out before the end of the Alpha. I just want that and then I will be done with it realistically until the retail version probably.

Had the same reaction and canceled my preorder. I can see this game being completely dependent on who you are playing the game online with.

It feels very similar to Left 4 Dead. The animations are choppy and the camera is weird, and the characters yell out silly things all the time, hunting the monster can be interesting but its mostly boring until the monster decides to show himself. Fighting the monster does feel fun. I enjoyed playing support, though sometimes it does feel like the monster is overpowered. That of course is dependent on the people you play with. If they suck, the monster will clobber everyone.

 

I think this is one to rent or pick up when the price drops. It is an alpha though so I assume things will improve.

This game got boring for me fast. Run around in a circle on the map 2-3 times for about 10 minutes then eventually run into the monster. Not my cup of tea.

I was watching some streamer who won every single game as monster and he had some great ideas - primarily not to evolve right away. When you are ready to evolve, your armor will be maxed so that is the best time to fight and get some kills. Then you can run away and evolve, feed some more and then repeat.

I did this strategy unintentionally.  It just happened that whenever I evolved, I had full armor.  It definitely worked.  Glad to know *why* it worked now, ha!

Finally decided to give this a try today and it's actually pretty good. First match I got to be the Goliath against a team of people with mics, and I managed to win. Second match I played as the Tracker and we won after awhile since we always had eyes on him.

 

I like the open level design, and so far the classes feel different enough to be fun to try a new one. Playing on both side it seems like either will have a fair chance at winning depending on skill.

Reddit is saying the beta is ready to download to play on the 15th for those that preordered. I dont see anything in their comments so Im guessing it's for the ones who preordered the digital version off the Xbox marketplace.

 

I preordered mine from Best Buy, any word if they're sending out beta codes?
