"We are blown away by the positive reception for Evolve
from both the critics and the consumers here at Gamescom," said Phil
Robb, co-founder and creative director at Turtle Rock Studios. "Winning
the 'Best of Show' award at both E3 and Gamescom in the same year is
humbling and exhilarating."
"It's encouraging to see the level of excitement for Evolve rise
constantly," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "The team
at Turtle Rock Studios is creating something very special with this new
IP that we believe will deliver one of the most unique and engaging
next-gen experiences early next year."
From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve,
the next-generation of multiplayer shooters where four hunters face off
against a single, player-controlled monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1
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 man
and monster alike. Level up to unlock new hunter or monster characters
as well as upgrades, skins and perks. Earn your infamy on the
leaderboards and become the apex predator.
Those who pre-order the award-winning Evolve from
participating retailers will receive the Monster Expansion
Pack, which includes the Savage Goliath skin at launch and a new
playable monster when available after Evolve is
released. To pre-order now, visit http://evolvegame.com/preorder.
