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…

Feature: Like writing... but it moves

Video: Hands On With Evolve

Evolve is from the makers of Left 4 Dead, and it's similar to its predecessor in that it offers asymmetric FPS multiplayer between four human soldiers and a player-controlled monster.

Video Preview: Evolve Is Left 4 Dead 3000

Hands On With Evolve, The Monster-Bullying Simulator

Evolve is a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer co-op action game from Turtle Rock Studios, the main team behind the original Left 4 Dead. Picked up by 2K for an eyewatering sum at the THQ IP firesale, it's due for release later this year. A couple of weeks ago, I went to play it. I'm shaking, which while a state I usually associate with over/under caffeination or…

Darwinian Overlay: Evolve Enters Open Beta

It's a fairly neat piece of software for gamers: an open gaming platform with various functionality such as chat, VOIP, partying systems with integrated VPN, stats and achievement tracking, and so on.

Survival Of The Smartest: Evolve

UPDATE: Use this link to sign up to the beta, and there's an RPS group already in there, I believe. For the past few months I've been playing around with an unreleased gaming application called Evolve. It's an interesting piece of software, rather like Steam without the digital distribution, and with a whole load of other functionality that is otherwise spread across different applications such…
