Egold: Evolve. Also, PC Beta For L4D / Binfinite Owners

A game going gold isn't particularly big news in this age of early access, unless you're someone who worked on it, or you're one of those not-at-all-fatiguing people who just have to start singing Spandau Ballet whenever a certain precious metal is mentioned, but I keep meaning to say something about Evolve. Here's an excuse to: Evolve, the 4v1 team shooter from original Left 4…

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. The difference is that the monster is huge and evolving, and the different skillsets of the human characters need to be put to careful use if they're going to have any chance of succeeding.We recently…

Hands On With Evolve: Where The FPS Meets The MOBA

I was sold on Evolve, convinced by a weekend spent game hunting in October’s Big Alpha. The player numbers seemed to suggest others felt similarly. This is it then, I thought: a high profile title has found approval in alpha and it’s a straight road to release. However, there was dissent among pundits, forcing me to ponder why some players had rebounded from Evolve, confused…

Supersize Me: Evolve Big Alpha Signups Now Available

While I maintain that the best thing about Turtle Rock's asymmetrical co-op shooter is its fabulous logo, Evolve is also starting to grow on me as an idea. They've done everything they can to put me off with impressively terrible shoutcasted trailers, but the central idea of controlling a giant monster and killing my friends is very solid. Equally, ganging up on one-another is what…

The Detour Of The Beagle: Evolve Delayed

Evolve is the monster hunting co-op shooter from Turtle Rock, who were previously responsible for Left 4 Dead. In a big (perhaps) to prove that slow and steady does indeed win the race, TR have announced that the game will be emerging into view several months later than initially planned. October 21st was the precise date that everything was supposed to be ship-shape and ready…

The Hunt Is Partially On: Evolve Alpha Signups

Hunters, emerge from your hides and rejoice. A small window of opportunity remains open and if you manage to sidle your camouflaged bulk through to the other side, you'll be a fully-fledged Evolve alpha tester. A few caveats though - you'll need to sign up on a PC that can run the game, have a working Steam account and you must be situated in mainland…

Testy: DICE Considering Early Access For Battlefield

In an interview with Game Informer, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson stated that the beta process for future Battlefield titles may resemble an Early Access release. "We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access]...It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of…

Feature: The Rockingest Of Turtles

Video Preview: Evolve Is Left 4 Dead 3000

Evolve is the next game from original Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock, and that alone should be enough to turn an eye or two or however many you happen to have. I was a giant firebreathing space mutant recently, so I can't judge. I got to go hands-on with Evolve's second batch of Hunters and gameplay options, and I came away with opinions. Powerful…

Evolve: Alien Dogs, Robots, Mini-Guns and Megamouths

I think my favourite thing about Evolve is its logo. It's intricately designed, simple genius. Those of you laughing, or perhaps suggesting that says more about the game than the logo, can all shush. Turtle Rock's Left 4 Monsters sits squarely in the middle of familiarity and originality for me, taking a co-op formula I appreciated and placing it in a more attractive sci-fi sphere.…

Evolve Won’t Have Mod Support At Launch, But Maybe Later

When you hear Evolve's premise, it's not exactly difficult to trace its lineage back to Left 4 Dead. Four vs one asymmetrical human vs monster competitive co-op? It's a markedly different experience from developer Turtle Rock's previous work (they collaborated with Valve) once you're on the hunt, but it's a natural, er, evolution of the undead phenom. Left 4 Dead's staying power, however, wasn't entirely…

Monster a Go-Go: Evolve Trailer Shows Oodles Of Gameplay

Left 4 Dead's Tank was terrifying for a while, grunting and crashing and smashing all over the place, before everyone realised you can simply set him ablaze then leg it. Something supposed to be so intimidating became a little pitiful, desperately chasing people around while his life ticked down. It's left me wary of L4D creators Turtle Rock's new multiplayer man vs. monster FPS Evolve,…

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…

Rock, Paper, Shotgun Officially Rules Against Teaser Trailers

The Court Of Horace has ruled, and the decision is final - infinite even: teaser trailers can bugger off.Trailers are adverts. Adverts are not precious jewels. Adverts are materials with a joint purpose - to convince people to buy your product, and to inform people about the product. The former is creepy and insidious and why we walk around like a race of sentient billboards…

Evolve: What The Original Left 4 Dead Team Did Next

2014 would seem to be the year in which the games industry has another crack at making primarily multiplayer shooting games work all over again. There've been a few false starts in the past, but Destiny and Titanfall are some super-big, super-fat attempts at achieveing enormous mass market success from shooters where narrative takes a backseat. Now Evolve joins the ranks of big games looking…

Darwinian Overlay: Evolve Enters Open Beta

You might be aware of Evolve, which has quietly been developing in closed beta up until today. 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. With the big companies trying to corner their bit of the PC market with their own…

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 as…
