Evolve looks great from it’s trailers and takes a unique approach to games that has rarely been seen before, pitting four human classes against one gigantic monster. Time will tell if the game manages to survive the hype and provides a multiplayer experience worth plonking $80 for, but the preview on hand at EB Expo was a great experience.
Team work is a major focus here, playing as one of the four hunters you are designated one role and expected to stick to it if you wish to complete your goal successfully. A Medic obviously heals the team, Assault deals the most damage to the monster, Support lays down support to the Assault class and the Hunter tracks down the monster. I was playing the Hunter for this demonstration as we tracked down the Kraken. I could lay down multiple sound spikes for the monster to trip for us to locate him and once located I could even create a small arena dome which forces the monster into a fight. I should mention that there are different variants of each class including the monsters.
When we spawned the monster was already at a few seconds advantage, trying his best to stealthy sneak around and feast on the local wild life to level up to this ultimate goal of level 3, if the monster does manage to level up to that stage, brace yourself as the fight is coming too you.
