From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve, a unique 4v1 shooter where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping matches. Play as the Monster to use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to kill your human enemies, or choose one of four Hunter classes (Trapper, Support, Assault, and Medic) and team up to take down the beast on the planet Shear, where flora and fauna act as an adversary to Hunter and Monster alike. Evolve includes three Monsters, 12 Hunters, 16 maps, and four game modes: Hunt, Nest, Rescue, and Defend.
Evolve also features Evacuation, an experience that uniquely combines the full array of maps, modes, Hunters, and Monsters in a dynamic experience that is different every time you play. Players choose a side, Monster or Hunter, and play through a series of five matches across all maps and modes in the game, with each victory or loss directly impacting the remaining matches in Evacuation with benefits to either the hunter or monster side. Each additional play through of Evacuation results in different combinations of mission types, environments, and map affects, totaling over 800,000 possible combinations. Because Evacuation includes every element of Evolve in one dynamic, unique package, it is highly replayable as a multiplayer, cooperative, and solo experience.
Playing Evolve Solo
All of Evolve’s content is playable solo and offline, and Evacuation is the best example of how to enjoy Evolve as a solo experience. Because Evacuation includes all of the elements in Evolve in one dynamic, unique package, it is the ideal way experience everything the game has to offer playing solo as either the Monster or as the Hunters.
Hunt - Hunters are called in to eliminate a single Monster. The Monster flees, kills wildlife, and eats to gain energy and stage up. The Hunters aim to track, trap and kill the monster before it gets too big. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or the Monster evolves to Stage Three and destroys the power relay.
Nest - The Hunters have been called in to destroy Monster eggs that have been discovered in the area. The Alpha Monster must defend the eggs and can even hatch one to gain a Goliath minion to fight at its side. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or all of the eggs and minion are destroyed.
Rescue - The Hunters are called in for a search and rescue mission. A Monster has attacked the facility and is still in the area, and groups of colonists have fled into the wilderness. Hunters need to locate, revive and lead each group of survivors to a rescue shuttle. The round ends when the majority of survivors have been either rescued or killed.
Defend - The transport ship is loaded with civilians and fueling up. A horde of Goliath minions led by a Stage 3 Alpha Monster attempts to destroy the fuel pad, which is protected by two reinforced walls, each powered by a generator. The hunters defend the generators and fuel pad until the ship can finish fueling. If the ship finishes fueling or the Alpha Monster is killed, the Hunters win. If the generators and fuel pad are destroyed, the Monster wins.
Evolve will ship with 16 different maps that span four unique biomes: forest, desert, acid and ice. 12 of these maps can be played in Hunt, Nest, and Rescue modes. Four additional maps were built specifically for Defend mode.
Goliath is a physically imposing, strong and aggressive biped with the ability to leap great distances and climb just about any object in Shear. Goliath’s attacks take advantage of its physicality and include fire breath and rock throw as well as both a leap and charge attack.
Kraken is a ranged monster, able to unleash calculated attacks from both ground and air. Using aerial abilities to levitate and fly makes Kraken especially deadly, but dangerous melee combos also make Kraken formidable on the ground. As a master of dark energy, Kraken fights the hunters with bolts of lightning, banshee mines, an aftershock attack, and forceful vortex waves to inflict maximum devastation.
Wraith is a small, stealthy assassin that is quick in her movements and has two exceptionally long blades to deal damage up close. Despite having the least amount of health and armor among Evolve’s Monsters, her quick, warping movements allow her to quickly dart around during battle to avoid taking damage. Wraith utilizes a warp blast, deploys a dangerous decoy, can abduct individual Hunters, and can create a supernova arena to unleash frenzied melees.

I loved the Left 4 Dead games and saw this as a new twist on that style of game, perfect for my new PS4. And it is. It has a good range of hunter characters (in and across classes) with enough difference between them to suit different play styles whilst still having the same basics to ensure that you can get to grips with each character fairly quickly. The monsters are enjoyable and to play (and fight) and nothing compares to the enjoyment in the devastation that you cause when you level up to the third evolution stage. The maps are varied and interesting and the local flora and fauna are a great match and are well built to provide a different experience whether you are a monster or a hunter. However, it has a much steeper learning curve (for me at least) with most of the first games being losses (both hunter and monster) with the AI seeming to have the annoying ability to know where you are on the map irrespective of tracking or sneaking. In fact the AI in solo modes seems in many ways to being on par with well practiced human opponents. The evacuation solo (story) mode really is not much of a story. I like to have a story arc as an alternative to quick play but here there is little holding the various levels together. As a quick conclusion I am happy to have bought the game and I have no doubt that it will provide many hours of happy frustration and hard fought success but when buying be aware that this is no casual shooter it is a real fight to be the top of the food chain.
What an inventive and original concept! 4 gadget packed hunters against one mammoth monster in a variety of exotic and dangerous terrains. Tailor made for hours of fun with your mates or total strangers online, but fairly limited as a solo campaign. The only point in this surely is powering up your hunter. Overall well recommended as long as you're playing online.
Bought evolve on ps4 and at first I wasn't sure I was enjoying it....it's a little slow out of the blocks and the idea of hunting a monster just seemed to be 15 minutes of wandering around not finding anything..... But then the game play started to come and I found some of the hunts to be the most exciting games I have played in a long time. The excitement of being on the monsters trail tracking it down in a beautifully rendered alien landscape is fantastic....top marks to trs on a game well delivered...
Brilliant game with a great multiplayer games. Highly recommended.
