Here’s When You Can Expect Evolve’s Next Four Hunters and Monster to Join the Fight

blog_behemoth_header

2K has revealed when players can download the next batch of hunters and the monster, for their 4v1 first-person shooter. On March 31, Evolve’s next four hunters will be able for all platforms. Players will also be able to download the next monster, the Behemoth on the same day. The Behemoth will cost $15 for those who didn’t pre-order the game, while those who did will get him for free. The four hunters; Torvald (Assault), Crow (Trapper), Slim (Medic) and Sunny (Support) are included in the game’s season pass for $24.99.

You can check out the hunters below, along with what they bring to the battlefield and some tips from Turtle Rock Studios’ Jess Damerst.

TORVALD (Assault)

“I HAVE CROSSED THE DEPTHS OF SPACE TO FIND YOU, BEAST! I AM YOUR DEATH!” – TORVALD

Torvald

  •  Cybernetic implants
  • Back-mounted Mortar Cannons
  • Shrapnel Grenade for exposing weak spots on the Monster
  • Autofire Shotgun

TRS Tip: Torvald’s Mortar is obviously great for splash damage at a distance, but you can also aim straight up for a close-range drop. Combine that with the Shrapnel Grenade to bring the Monster a world of pain.

Crow (Trapper)

“THESE THINGS ARE TOUGH….WONDER HOW THEY TASTE.” –CROW

Crow

  • Pet Batray named Gobi, who flies ahead on command to scout for the monster’s location
  • Stasis Gun with two firing modes: A rapid-fire mode for briefly slowing down the Monster, or a charged shot for a longer effect
  • His Kinetic Long Rifle deals a lot of damage-per-second with its rapid-fire mode, while a charged shot will penetrate a Monster’s armor and damage its health.

TRS Tip: Send Gobi out often. He should be looking for the Monster even when you’re in a dome to keep tabs on it. Also, try to stick with the charged shot with the Stasis Gun – it will slow the monster longer, as opposed to short-burst shots.

Slim (Medic)

“YOU GOT TOO MUCH HEALTH, GOLIATH! GIMME SOME!” – SLIM

Slim

  • His Leech Gun saps the Monster’s strength and dictates how quickly his healing burst recharges
  • Healing Burst has the largest radius among all medics
  • Slim’s Healing Drone flies around have aids his teammates by regenerating their health
  • His Spore Cloud Launcher masks the Hunters scent, making the Monster’s ability to smell their location useless

TRS Tip: Fire the Leech Gun often – even if you don’t think you’re hitting anything. The Leech gun is how Slim replenishes the Medic Heal Burst ability. The more shots you take at the wildlife (and the Monster), the faster it recharges!

Sunny (Support)

“YAY! WE DID IT! WHY DIDN’T ANYONE BELIEVE ME? YOU GUYS ARE SUCH DOWNERS.” – SUNNY

Sunny

  • Her Shield Drones will provide cover for nearby teammates
  • The Jetpack Booster allows her teammates to fly farther and faster. As long as they are within range, their jetpacks won’t run out of fuel
  • Sunny’s Mininuke Grenade Launcher does more damage than any other hand-wielded weapon in the game with a single projectile

TRS Tip: Jetpack Boost teammates that are being attacked so they can dodge out of the way as much as possible. Also, if you’re hot on the trail of the Monster, Jetpack Boost your Trapper so that they can keep pace and drop a dome on it.

The Order 1886 is Ready At Dawn’s first full-fledged production, but has it done the development studio more harm than good?

Take a listen as we discuss some major issues with the industry and how we feel about them. As always, you are free to disagree and feedback is yours to give.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Language, Guidance Suggested.

Karma’s a B*tch; Evolve’s Wraith Glitches Out

Evolve-–-Wraith-1

Ask anyone who has encountered the wraith in Evolve and they’ll confirm; she is overpowered as hell. Despite having the least armor and health out of the three monsters, her unique abilities and speed make her a formidable foe. Too formidable in fact. When the monster that is supposed to be the toughest to play as, ends up with a high win rate, you have a problem. When more and more players start using her to get easier wins, you have a bigger problem. It starts to hurt the overall experience and results in frustration.

Which is what this wraith player must have felt towards the end of our match. Despite giving my teammates and I a hard time, we eventually prevailed. Not because we outsmarted our opponent, or fought to the bitter end like true warriors. No, no, we won because the bastard got stuck. Check it out below.

 

Karma’s a bitch.

Impressions: EVOLVE Brings an Original Flavor of Gameplay Innovation That’s Worthwhile

Evolve Turtle Rock Studios 2K Games

Evolve on Xbox ONE has a solid frame rate, gameplay, and graphics. Over time, we’ve seen Turtle Rock Studios give a very much improved build again and again. The game overall is very quick and easy to jump in to and play and the design concept is original and good. Turtle Rock has given birth to a lot of new moments for the shooter genre and we appreciate that as the genre certainly needs revitalizing.

Evacuation Mode and the map to map, round to round changes (Turtle Rock claims results in over 800,000 possible combinations) give a dynamic feel to the game. Guns and upgrades all have a very different feeling. The game has a similar feel to Destiny in that players feel an urge to perpetually upgrade gear and bring it online with their crew.

Evolve is even more focused on gameplay and user interactions online than most games in the shooter market and will likely be judged heavily for it. There are some issues with core elements of the game being sectioned off and costing extra money but the fun factor, replay value, and dare I say innovative nature of Evolve makes these issues possible to overlook.

This game has shown promise since the start of development and I’ve personally now played more than a few builds both through public and press access, at events and from home in real world settings, and each time milestones have seemingly been met to push performance, controls, and graphics in leaps and bounds. There’s a lot of game modes that simulate other games in the genre, or add new original twists to the scene. Some of these include Rescue Mode, Nest Mode, and Defend mode. Hopefully these all stay available to play and aren’t phased in / out due to popularity – since I like diversity. But hopefully they can also be populated with games.

Evolve PS4 Xbox ONE

Balancing can be a tricky thing, and we expect more along the lines of tweaks and updates as the full build is prepared for launch, and even once its out the door. Such is the way with heavily multiplayer-centric shooters after all. But besides that, and all caveats discussed aside, So Far So GOOD!

Jermain Jackson, Deputy Editor Impressions of Evolve:

Having played the technical test on my Sony PS4, my excitement level for Evolve went from almost non-existent to, ”Give it to me NOW!”

Evolve is one of the most fun co-op experiences I’ve played in years. Even if there is no verbal communication between you and your teammates, as long as everyone plays smart and utilizes their character class’s unique abilities, you can achieve victory.

Based on gameplay footage, it seemed as though being in control of the Monster would have been the most fun part about Evolve. Boy was I wrong. For the most part, playing on the hunters’ side was just as fun and intense as playing as a Monster. Neither side felt unbalanced, each had their strengths and weaknesses.

From my experience Turtle Rock Studios has done a wonderful job of capturing the thrill of the hunt and the fight for survival. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on it come February 10, 2015.

Which Version of Evolve Is Right For You?

Evolve RealGamerNewz Review

When we published our article about Evolve’s DLC, many people had confusions and questions as to what they could get from each of Evolve’s offerings. Beyond the Season Pass, here’s what players can get their hands in for that more wholesome Evolve bundle feel (hold the missing content shivers please).

Details Below:

Let us know in the RGN Comments section below which version you think gives the best bang for your buck and if you’ll be picking this game up or not.

Evolve DLC Prices Getting Criticized by Gamers, Is It Too Much?

Evolve DLC RealGamerNewz

If you pre-order and play in the Beta right now, your progress will transfer over – you will get that skin – and you will get that monster. This is definitely an appreciated advantage to what Turtle Rock Studios is providing with Evolve. However, recently they have been drawn to scrutiny about their DLC pricing per monster and hunter.

The Hunting Season Pass comes for $24.99 and includes 3 monster skins as well as 4 hunter characters. Players can opt to not pay for it and they will still end up fighting against the more advanced monsters, and alongside the more advanced hunters or they can pick and choose Individual DLC which are priced at $14.99 per monster or $7.49 per hunter. The pre-order monster will be sold as well for $14.99 if you didn’t get the chance to do so.

On the flip side of things, new maps are free and it appears that hunters and monsters purchased as DLC will appear in matchmaking with players who don’t pick up the DLC as well, thus preventing the splinter of Evolve’s community. This is being looked at by many as acceptable, while getting criticized by others. Some say it is similar to Destiny and has an MMO type of feel to the way it’s designed.

Is this too much?
