Turtle Rock Studios has announced its massive “Sheer Madness” event, during which the developer will release five updates for Evolve Stage 2 over the course of five weeks.
Today’s update, The Quantum Surge, introduces a new Hunter to the game called Quantum Caira, who uses a unique area control style healing combined with new abilities. According to the developer, Caira is on of its “most daring Medic designs yet.”
“Quantum Caira keeps the team alive through sustained healing and careful positioning,” Turtle Rock explains. “Her Regeneration Fields create healing zones while her Neutron Barrier blocks damage for the whole team, as long as she’s in the right place. Unlike other medics she has no healing burst so a well-positioned Regeneration Field combined with a well-timed Proton Field are the keys to success with Quantum Caira.”
As well as a new hunter, the update also makes the following changes:
- 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.
Evolve Stage 2 is available as a free download on PC via Steam and will be brought over to consoles at a later date.
