Evolve pre-orders net players additional monster skin and playable monster

Posted on January 14, 2014 AT 01:02pm

Pre-ordering Evolve—Turtle Rock Studios’ recently announced 4-on-1 next-gen debut—will net players a monster kin and additional monster character, the developer announced today.

The Monster Expansion pack includes the Savage Goliath skin for the playable monster revealed as part of Game Informer’s most recent cover story, as well as an additional monster character that will be free to players who pre-order “as soon as it becomes available after Evolve is released.”

Developed by Left 4 Dead creator Turtle Rock Studio, Evolve revolves around four players working in harmony as a team of alien monster hunters while a fifth player assumes the role of their prey (or predator, depending on perspective). The lone wolf monster character increases in size and power throughout the match by consuming other local wildlife.

“Our philosophy is to build incredibly fun game experiences that we can’t find anywhere else,” co-founder and design director Chris Ashton said in a press statement. “Evolve’s co-op vs. lone wolf formula has created some of the most intense multiplayer matches we’ve ever experienced.”

“Evolve will be a generation-defining multiplayer experience,” 2K president Christoph Hartmann added. “As our first new IP for next-gen systems, 2K is working with Turtle Rock Studios to deliver a game that’s instantly entertaining and impossible to put down.”

Evolve is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this fall.
