2K plans have announced plans to largely end Evolve, the 4v1 monster-hunting first-person shooter from Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios, though it will remain playable in a way. Evolve first launched in February 2015, then relaunched as the free-to-play Evolve Stage 2 in July 2016. 2K plan to shut down Evolve Stage 2 in September, though people who bought the original will be…

Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock making F2P co-op FPS

Left 4 Dead and Evolve creators Turtle Rock Studios have announced a new co-op first-person shooter. Ish. A bit. They've announced they're making one.

While Evolve switched to free-to-play a year after launching but this new game will be designed as F2P from the start, which…

Evolve Updates Stop As Turtle Rock Move On

Yesterday was the very last day Turtle Rock will work on Evolve [official site]. The servers will still run but no future updates are planned. Despite a relaunch as free-to-play in July, it looks like it simply wasn't popular enough to justify the cost of them working more on the 4v1 monsterhunting FPS. It wasn't their call to make - that'd be publishers 2K -…

Phew, finally we get some new names in the Steam top 10 (previous weeks here'n'that), after the chokehold of the Steam Summer Sale is loosened. I did not expect that number 1, but I really did not expect that number 10.

UnShocked: Evolve Will Be A “Permanent” Franchise

Rumblings in the towers of Take-Two have gotten me wondering about the status of the BioShock franchise. GameSpot are reporting the publisher's CEO and potential movie villain Strauss Zelnick calling the series "really important" to Take-Two at a recent conference. According to Zelnick, it's so far sold a whopping 25 million units, 11 million of which were BioShock Infinite. Zelnick has previously referred to this as…

Evolve Wot I Think-In-Progress: Conclusion

Please note this is the last instalment of a multi-part Wot I Think (done that way as we didn’t have pre-release code) and may seem a little bamboozling out of that context. Previous instalments - one and two. One week later isn’t anything like enough to be definitive about any online shooter. No matter how few parts it might have will inherently shift and –…

Evolve Wot I Think-In-Progress, Part 2: Puny Humans

Editor's note - we only received review code for Evolve [official site] yesterday. Rather than now wait a week or so to run a review, I'm posting a very short series of my thoughts as I think 'em, in the hope of providing more timely information to those who want it. Here's part 1 ICYMI. I'm into the swing of things now, having tried out…

Evolve Wot I Think-In-Progress, Part 1: Monster Maths

Turtle Rock's asymmetrical multiplayer shooter Evolve [official site] went live today, though its many and various DLC shenanigans mean I'm not entirely sure just how much of the game is on my hard drive right now. That's a dilemma for further down the line though: today, I just want to natter about how it's feeling a few hours in. We didn't get review code before…

Evolve Guide: Turtle Rock On Beginner’s Tips For Hunters

A… Match 3 App? Evolve Makes Things So Complicated

I really want to like Evolve (official site). I've dabbled a little in the beta, and while it doesn't have anything like the character or tension of Left 4 Dead, a whole lot about it felt good. I just can't say the same of what's happening outside the game. There's been too much focus on too much DLC before the game's even with us, and…

Turtle Rock Defend Evolve’s DLC Shenanigans

Turtle Rock and 2K are currently on the receiving end of an Internet Frown due to their approach to DLC and pre-order gubbins in their impending humans vs monsters multiplayer shooter Evolve. They'd pared some pretty major stuff, including playable monsters, off into bonus payments, and as well as their various editions and DLC being simply confusing, there's been concern that the game experience might…

Evolve’s Bewildering Pre-Order Devolution

As I mentioned t'other day, I'm a wee bit psyched about Left 4 Dead maker Turtle Rock's upcoming 4v1 shooter Evolve, but an unhealthy excess of pre-orderballs is fast unpsyching me. Imagine if L4D had restricted the Boomer to a pre-order bonus, or you could only play as Zoey if you bought the Left 4 Dead: None Left Behind Deluxe Ultra Apocalypse Master Race Edition.…
