Evolve: Stage 2 seems to be a successful experiment so far, with the latest big event promising lots of new stuff to check out.

Watch on YouTube

Turtle Rock are promising five weeks of named updates, with details listed on Evolve’s website. Today, we get the ‘Quantum Surge’ update.

The trailer above shows off Quantum Caira, a new medic character who is being added to the game today. She has no healing burst, but her Regeneration Field can create healing opportunities for the whole team.

This update also brings:

  • Some first steps towards improving widespread community issues on matchmaking and leavers
  • Balance changes
  • A brand new series of Advanced Hunter tutorials
  • An all-new “Try Before you Buy” option, where all hunters, monsters, skins and perks that you’d normally earn using Silver Keys are now unlocked in the game’s Training Mode

The move to a free model has led to a massive increase in the number of active players.

It remains to be seen what the next four updates will bring.

Evolve: Stage 2 is free to play on Steam.
