Evolve release date announced!

Grab your weapons, contact your team and go on the hunt. Evolve will be unleashed this fall, October 21, 2014!

If you have not heard of Evolve (you poor thing), no worries. A press release from 2K Games explains it the best.

“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 (Trapper, Support, Assault and Medic) 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.”

See Evolve in action below in this sick 4v1 gameplay trailer. I’ve also included some wicked looking screenshots afterwards.

Each Hunter has their own unique role and abilities. Additional characters and monsters are in the works.

The more damage you deal to monsters, the bloodier they get.

Teamwork is vital if the Hunters want to win...or live.

To learn more about Evolve and to watch more delicious trailer-y goodness, stalk over to the game’s official website. I’m excited to play the Trapper role. How about you? Do you have a monster in you?

Happy hunting!
