Evolve info blowout: alien evolution, class abilities and more revealed

Thursday, 9 January 2014 11:38 GMT By Dave Cook

Evolve developer Turtle Rock recently unveiled its next-gen co-op shooter in the pages of Game Informer. More details have emerged from the issue, covering the way aliens evolve, class abilities and more.

Earlier this week we reported that Evolve was Game Informer’s February cover reveal, along with initial artwork. Brenna also reported that Evolve’s four human classes are assault, medic, support and trapper.

As you’d expect from the creators of Left 4 Dead, Evolve’s classes must work together in co-op to take down one human-controlled alien, which can evolve by devouring wildlife found throughout each map.

This NeoGAF thread has harvested Game Informer’s article for more information and they’ve dug up some interesting facts.

First up, the first revealed planet – dubbed ‘Shear’ – only plays a small part of Evolve’s story. It plays home to an objective-based mission that sees players racing against the alien player to take down a barrier or kill some humans respectively.

The alien player will win the match if all four players are downed at the same time, while humans win by simply killing the monster. However, the more wildlife the alien consumes, the harder and more aggressive it becomes. Once it has evolved fully, only then can it complete the map objective. If a hunter dies while their team mates are still active, a dropship will place them back into the map within two minutes, as well as other players that die within that time.

Guns have unlimited ammo but are defined by cool-down and other attributes. Speaking of which, some class skills have been revealed, such as assault hunter Markov’s personal shield and damage focus, while the support class Hank can buff the skills of other players. Griffin, the Trapper, has what GAF calls a ‘mobile arena’ that can trap the monster while Val, the medic, can heal and revive allies with a medical gun, while dishing out pain with a sniper rifle.

Humans can also stun the alien with tranquillizer guns and each bear jetpacks. If you double-tap the jetpack button you perform a dodge move, while running is automatic. They’ll need to dodge, seeing as ‘Goliath’, the first revealed alien, will grow to 30-feet tall in its final evolution. It’s been called a hybrid of ape, snake and xenomorph. At first it can punch humans and climb walls, but will get to choose two new skills at evolution level one, then one more with each level gained.

Examples noted include throwing rocks, leaping large distances and breathing fire. It should be noted however that hunters will also fight against the map’s wildlife, which can also be as tall as the Goliath itself. Once the Goliath eats enough wildlife it starts to evolve in a cocoon state, which leaves it vulnerable for a short while. The beast can move stealthily or as standard, leaving destruction and huge footprints in its wake. It’ll be hard to miss once fully evolved.

There is much more to be revealed, so stay tuned for move Evolve coverage soon. What do you think so far?

    This has now become one of my most anticipated games in 2014, along with ‘The Forest’.

    The ‘beast’ sounds like a mix of all the special infected from L4D, especially the ‘tank’ class.

    Wow. Really, really wow. It’s like Left 4 Dead was only the beginning. Can NOT WAIT TO PLAY. This is the perfect evolution (pardon the pun) of L4D. The Alien is like the ultimate player controlled tank while the main map is kinda like a MOBA arena with wildlife serving as the creep / jungle side that opposes both sides.

    Poor THQ. With this, Saints Row 4 and South Park, they could have survived to turn into a great publisher.

  10. The_Red

    I actually believe that’s a fair point. PS3 and 360 are really constraining next-gen games. Because of them, cross-gen games can’t have level / world sizes, physics, AI and other elements that might be unplayable on weaker hardware.

    So going PC, PS4, XB1 only might lead to a better or at least more technically ambitious gameplay, rather than just prettier visuals as was the case with Battlefield 4 or AC4.

    Sadly, even though Wii U can be considered next-gen and does deserve 3rd party support, it’s weaker hardware could indeed constrain PS4/XB1/PC games just like PS3 and 360. And the power difference really does impact the gameplay. Just look at Dead Rising 1 for Wii. The weaker hardware didn’t just result in lower graphics. Zombie numbers and the whole feel of DR was gone in that version.

    #10 1 year ago
  11. monkeygourmet


    No, it is once again a (poorly) disguised diss on Wii U. Half Dragons comments at the moment are about The ‘real’ next gen (which the Wii U isn’t a part of), whatever that means.

    That comment was just an extension of that avenue of trolling.

    If we really want to go down this road we have to say PC games are constrained because of PS4 / Xbone… Or PS4 games are potentially constrained by Xbone… It just goes on and on.

    Dragon just wanted to lump Wii U firmly in with 360 / PS3 for trolling purposes, even though we know the Wii U doesn’t get many (any) third party releases.

    It was irrelevant to mention it.

    Your Dead Rising example could easily be replaced by Skyrim on PS3… Or BF3 on consoles compared to PC…

    It is exactly how you and red said about weaker platforms constraining more powetfull ones. But i also agree to the fact that consoles are definetly constraining pc. But how many pc`s? Consoles have much larger audience for gaming and thats the reason why they are kept as a priority platform despite pc. Also how many pc gamers even have more powerful or even as powerful pc as a console? For example from steams 65 users maybe half have a good rig.

    I don’t know what the history between you two is, but what’s wrong with what he said?

    PC held back by consoles
    PS4/X1 held back by WiiU, 360, PS3
    In general: New hardware held back by older/weaker hardware

    That’s simply how it is in the graphical sense. But hardware doesn’t make good games. Know what I play most on PS4 right now? Don’t Starve. That shit is 2D son, and it’s pretty great.

    But do I want to see actual next-gen games? Of course I do. Or I can’t mentally justify buying a “next-gen” console.

  15. monkeygourmet


    I thought explained it in @11? I found this particularly ironic… One minute saying the a Wii U has no third party devs, the next insinuating its ‘holding back next gen’…

    The Wii U can’t hold anything back considering it’s receiving next to no ports. It was irrelevant bringing it up in this thread. It happens all the time… Like here:

    Irrelevant to mention Wii U but not irrelevant to mention the two other platforms? Which are all irrelevant in that context.
    Taking offence to the Wii U reference but not the other two platforms?

    Right. Also you will find many people, developers, publishers and so on don’t refer to Wii U as next gen. Granted if he said just Wii U your comment would hold merit but he didn’t so it hasn’t. Because what your saying can mostly be applied to those other systems as well, no problem.

    There was nothing wrong but a fixation on a solo platform. An opinion he didn’t want to see.

    Point: I am keeping an eye on this one.

  19. dtyk

    I don’t see what’s wrong with bringing it up in that context, albeit kind of negative.

    The remote play has been misunderstood COUNTLESS times as WiiU’s 2nd screen feature, which it is NOT. You were able to remote play through wifi since the PS3 days (even with PSP), and it wasn’t until PS4 came out that people went “ohhhhhh…”

    I can’t speak for the WiiU since I don’t own one.

    Well people are going to like what they want to like. At least he’s not as hardcore as Polygem (or so I think).

    Monkey I think you just need to relax a little. The more you jump at each negative comment, the more fun others will have at your expense. You don’t “win” arguments on the internet.

    I never refused to acknowledge anything the first time nor this time, you thought i needed a history lesson. I didn’t and still don’t. You want to discuss Dragon? Fine, make a forum thread and i will draw up pros and cons maybe i will do it here.

    I’m not speaking about history and behaviour which is irrelevant, i’m speaking about whats going on in this thread which is relevant.

    Did he mention Wii U only? Or two other platforms as well?

  21. Dragon

    “At least he’s not as hardcore as Polygem (or so I think).”
    You are sooo wrong about that ;) Just look here how my 360 and PS3 mentions were just neglected and me getting flamed (only 1222321221th time) for mentioning wiiu. Polygem wouldn’t have done that…probably.

    Anyway, I don’t have time to play with him.

    “Well people are going to like what they want to like.”
    Exactly. Why bother what others like or dislike? Live and let live and take others opinions as just that, opinions.

    I’ve already addressed that in @11.

    It’s just particularly stupid in relation to the Wii U because it doesn’t get many current gen ports, let alone next gen ports… It was poorly disguised trolling as I said previously. He’s even carried it over into this thread for good effect:

    Until we can see features that show why these games are only possible on Xbone / PS4 / PC it’s irrelevant to mention platforms ‘holding back developers’.

    #23 1 year ago
  24. dtyk


    Isn’t that the whole point of this thread…? That we haven’t seen the game yet, so it’s exciting to see a game that’s made for nextgen only…? So we can finally see games only possible on next-gen consoles…?

    Oh whatever.

    Yeah, okay LB.

    I would have more faith in him not having pre-determined agenda if he hadn’t been talking about the ‘real next gen’ so much rather than the ‘gimmicky one’. (Again, whatever that means?!)

    Oh and the fact we know Dragon can’t resist a jab at Wii U whenever he can.

    #26 1 year ago
  27. The_Red

    That too is relatively true.
    I wouldn’t say Skyrim on PS3 (Because it wasn’t bad because of weaker PS3 hardware compared to 360. It was due to horrible engineering on Bethesda’s part) but other than that, it’s pretty much true about all cases when it comes to having a technically stronger platform shared with a weaker one.

    BF3 was indeed constrained by PS3 and 360. Hell, every PC release in the last 4 years has been constrained by those two. I wouldn’t include titles older than that OR PS4/XB1. Sure, you could say that a game made for super high-end PCs is constrained by PS4/XB1 but currently, no games are made for that.

    It’s always about mid-range and PS4/XB1 are on par with mid-range PCs. Wii U isn’t though and thus, making a multi-platform game for it can lead to some constrains (8Gb Rams, modern CPUs and stuff like that). Of course in 2-3 years, mid-range PCs will easily surpass PS4/XB1 and by then, those 2 will be constrains on PC titles (And Wii U would be double constrain by then).

    Its amusing to think that the one console thats actually achieving 1080P 60FPS consistently is the one considered last gen and under-powered. Holding back the industry indeed.

    Lets look at the biggest games for all three shall we?

    Killzone = FPS can drop to 14 FPS
    Dead Rising 3 = FPS can drop to 10 FPS
    Super Mario 3D World = Consistent 60 FPS with no drops.

    None of that matters a single fucking bit though does it? Not really now, because Dead Rising 3 is still the best game of the entire new console launch line up and Killzone still looks stunning. Super Mario 3D World is one of the best games of the last year and has more new ideas in a single level than the rest of the launch line up of the new machines do in their entire games.

    Fucking console babbies Jesus Christ just play the fucking games. You know whats holding back the industry and the development of gaming? You. You are.

    The simple fact is cash / profit.

    The attach rate of PS4 / Xbone will be enough to make porting this to 360 / PS3 irrelevant. The Wii U doesn’t even deserve mention as it’s not getting ports NOW (where’s Bioshock Infinite / Tomb Raider etc…?) It’s a non point.

    Unless you are trolling obviously, by trying to shove the Wii U firmly in with last gen for snide purposes. The constant mention of ‘real next gen’ and ‘gimmicky ones’ kind of betrays the true meaning of the comment.

    You can’t exactly give me that “none of your business” attitude, because this gets tiring for anybody after a while. It used to be filled with 100+ comments of Polygem furiously defending and preaching Nintendo on an article that has nothing to do with Nintendo.

    Even Erthazus is better. At least he shits on others on articles that has to do with PC games most of the time (not always, but most).
