THE VIEW: From what we’ve seen of trailers & news Evolve’s looking pretty deserving of its four E3 awards, but will it deliver on next-gen gameplay? After seeing the hulking monsters that take centre stage, we think it will be a staple game for every PC, PS4 & Xbox One!
In Evolve XBOX One you are 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 face-off against a single, player-controlled monster. Stalk your prey, execute your attack and prove you are the apex predator in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches.
4V1 – Grab three friends and hunt the monster or stalk the humans as the evolving beast. Whichever side you choose, you will have access to powerful weapons and abilities that deliver balanced, competitive gameplay.
Hunt Together or Die Alone – Choose a hunter that fits your play style. Whether you play as the Trapper, Support, Assault, or Medic, every role is vital and teamwork is key in surviving an encounter with the monster.
Beast of Prey – As the monster – the lone predator – you are the boss battle. Use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to wreak havoc, kill the humans and prove you are the dominant species.
Savage Planet - Neither flora nor fauna are friendly on planet Shear. Fall victim to natural hazards or use them strategically against your prey.
Character Customisation – Level up to unlock new upgrades, skins and perks for your favourite class: hunter or monster. Earn your infamy on the leaderboards and become the apex predator.
HUNT: Hunters are called in to eliminate a single Monster. The Monster flees, kills wildlife, and eats to gain energy and stage up. The Hunters aim to track, trap and kill the monster before it gets too big. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or the Monster evolves to Stage Three and destroys the power relay.
NEST: The Hunters have been called in to destroy Monster eggs that have been discovered in the area. The Alpha Monster must defend the eggs and can even hatch one to gain a Goliath minion to fight at its side. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or all of the eggs and minion are destroyed.
RESCUE: The Hunters are called in for a search and rescue mission. A Monster has attacked the facility and is still in the area, and groups of colonists have fled into the wilderness. Hunters need to locate, revive and lead each group of survivors to a rescue shuttle. The round ends when the majority of survivors have been either rescued or killed.
DEFEND: The transport ship is loaded with civilians and fueling up. A horde of Goliath minions led by a Stage 3 Alpha Monster attempts to destroy the fuel pad, which is protected by two reinforced walls, each powered by a generator. The hunters defend the generators and fuel pad until the ship

This game is incredible, playing it with a group of friends or a talkative team is a unique experience and playing as the monster is very intense. Each class of hunters is very different and adds to the replayability. Another plus is that the developers are giving all the map and game mode dlc for free!

This game is great. It doesn't matter if your on the team of hunters or the lone monster, this game offers intense and nerve wrecking battles. Maps are wide open and offer several different routes and gameplay opportunities. Each individual hunter class feels important and plays a key role in success. Wrecking havoc and slaughtering the hunters as a huge powerful monster is absolutely satisfying. Turtle Rock has made a fantastic game yet again.

I lined up for 1hr and 45mins to get some hands on time with Evolve at Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Perth Western Australia at the end of June. It was worth every second of smelly nerds and know it all kids to play it at the dedicated booth 2k had set up. It looked absolutely gorgeous and ran incredibly smooth without even a hint of pop up. 2k had it running on PC set at console levels, using Xbox 360 controllers with Turtle Beach headsets. The creature, hunters and environment were highly detailed and really showed how amazing games will look once we get passed the cross generation development cycle and start to push the capabilities of the new consoles. Evolve also sounded fantastic, with the sounds of battle being a lot more directional than anything I've played on Xbox 360 or PS3. The rounds are about 20-30 minutes long and a fun, action packed ride the whole time. The four classes of hunter really complement each other well and make team play a lot of fun. When the creature evolves up to level 3 and comes after you it gets nuts quickly. They can knock you for six and take you out of the fight quickly if your not careful. I can't wait to get my hands on the monster when the game releases. And, with the extra hunters, weapons, creatures, modes and maps coming in the retail release this is going to be huge.
