Evolve is the new game from the creators of Left 4 Dead, and you might see some similarities up front: You’re a group of four hunters, trying to track and kill a monster. Each hunter has a specific strength. For instance, your trapper can shoot harpoon traps, pinning the monster and preventing it from sprinting away while the rest of the team deals out damage.
The twist, of course, is that the monster is also a human player. It’s four versus one combat, and the monster only gets more powerful as the game continues—throwing rocks, breathing fire, and all-around wreaking havoc.
Monday’s conferences didn’t show off anything new from Evolve—just a brief trailer. However, we got a chance to go hands-on with the game last month, and you can read that report here.
