Evolve publisher 2K has just dated Turtle Rock Studios’ co-op shooter on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The team has also revealed four new hunters.

Now that you’ve marked your diary, check out this image of four new hunters you’ll be able to play as in Evolve:

From left to right that’s assault class Hyde, trapper class Maggie, medic class Lazarus and support class Bucket. Maggie’s pet Daisy is on the far right.

Hyde has a flamethrower that GameInformer reports is the strongest weapon in Evolve, but is balanced by having a stubby range. He can also unleash his mini-gun, toxic grenades and personal shield.

evolve_maggie

Maggie can spear the alien with her harpoons to root them in place, and has the ability to revive fallen hunters. Her pet is a trapjaw called Daisy that can attack aliens on sight.

evolve_bucket

Bucket can set up sentry turrets and slam aliens with heat-seeking missiles. he can also lay down an area-of-effect cloaking skill that hides hunters with its range. Best of all, his head can detach and fly around like a support drone. Reminds me of that guy from Sega classic Alien Storm.

Lastly: Lazarus can revived his downed comrades and heal them using a quick ability, while remaining concealed using his own personal cloak device.

There’s also a new map called The Dam, which you can see here:

That’s all for now. What do you think?

    I don’t think it is a big enough game to be released alongside so many other big games.

    This looks awesome, I really wish the release dates for all the awesome games were not in the same couple of months.

    Played this at The Gadget Show Live, i wasn’t keen on it. It just seemed a bit bland for what it is. If they are charging a full £40 / $60 for this then they are robbing people blind.

    Best part about my experience of playing it was the free T-Shirt!
