[PC] Evolve

Surprised there isn't a thread for this yet. If you don't know, Evolve is an upcoming game from the L4D team that pits a group of people against an evolving badass monster. Hunting the beast will be lots of fun but I imagine the real gem of the game will be playing the beast yourself, hunting lesser prey to evolve into a fire breathing titan. I'm going to be getting it on release, no doubt.

I completely forgot about this game, it looks awesome fun but i'm going to wait and see what content it has before i get it. The devs said there would be dozens of different maps/arenas with different environments and monster types. The L4D special infected were all fun and unique and the maps were all solid so i'm really looking forward to see what they come up with. I love the fact that the monster starts off weak and has to evade the hunters and hide until it can evolve and become stronger, should be a lot of pressure and fear on the hunters to find it quickly before they become the hunted.

I really hate spiders so i'm hoping for a spider monster on a map with lots of caves , fog and hidden tunnels so it can just pop out of nowhere and grab people. The tank and witch were scary, but that would just be terrifying :cheers:

What kind of monster/map combos are you hoping for?

A full match in an interactive trailer :)





Little disappointed with the auto-aim weapons =\

Looking at the local flora/fauna I really want something like a funnel web spider trap on the ceiling now too lol. I hope they add some more meaty monsters, seems like it's either trash or it 1 hits you with no middle ground.

Are there still sign-ups for it?


Gave it a good go at iSeries as the monster and it was a LOT of fun. I don't really think that the noobishness of team mates or the monster is going to be too much of an issue, however, as it seems near impossible for either side to cock up that spectacularly.

Played it last night, was alright. Match making took forever tho.
Lots of player have no clue what to do which pretty much ruined the experience for me thus far.. Will try later tonight with a few friends, should be more fun.

I got access to the Pre-Alpha. When I get a game or two under my belt I will let you know what I think of it. But what I have seen of the game video wise, it does look quite good

I'm hoping it's still active (checking it all now) but if you download and load up Curse Voice, you can get access through a banner click.


Never used Curse Voice, I doubt I'll use it much but it's nice to see that there's some form of voice chat in game.


EDIT: Yep, this works.

I tried playing last night but the one game I managed to join was crippled by lag :(

I imagine it's fun without lag though, the trapper seemed to be pretty agile and the mobile arena is awesome fun

Edit: Have some extra codes if anyone needs one

Got a few games in this morning, turned AA off and graphics to medium and I can finally run it fine. 2 games as the goliath, apparently my natural immensity traslates directly into being a giant on screen too. Rock smash is my favourite thing in the world. Couple of games as the trapper, without lag popping the mobile arena is amazing. Even though I got trapped twice at lvl 2 I managed to eat the entire team, I don't know if people know that they can get out of the dome while it's up lol
