Tuesday, 7th January 2014 16:32 GMT By Dave Cook

Evolve has been revealed as Game Informer’s February cover reveal – it’s a four-player co-op alien shooter coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Game Informer reports that Evolve developer Turtle Rock consists of former Counter-Strike devs and Left 4 Dead creators. Naturally then, it’s a co-op multiplayer experience.

It’s being published by 2K Games – which bought the IP for $10.8 million back at the big THQ auction – and sees four soldiers fighting a player controlled alien that will evolve to become bigger and more fearsome over matches. Each alien hunter boasts unique abilities, but even though it’s a four-on-one fight, the alien player will be a force to be reckoned with.

Game Informer has promised more details through the week, but what do you think so far? Let us know below.

    Not being pessimistic, but it’ll probably fade into forgetfulness in a few months after release.
    Most MP games do nowadays, even if it’s a good game sadly.

    This isn’t JUST a shooter. It’s from makers of Counter Strike and the good Left 4 Dead (First one). One could argue that the former is the best competitive multiplayer game while the latter is the best co-operative multiplayer game ever made.

    Indies already did this. (And better, since it’s not a generic FPS.)

    Sorry 2K.

    That does change things. That part I wasn’t aware of. So it might actually be all right.

    (I couldn’t resist name-dropping Omegalodon, though, as that’s a thing of beauty that deserves more attention.)
