Evolve & Evacuation Overview
From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve, a unique 4v1 shooter where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 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 Hunter and Monster alike. Evolve includes three Monsters, 12 Hunters, 16 maps, and four game modes: Hunt, Nest, Rescue, and Defend.

Evolve also features Evacuation, an experience that uniquely combines the full array of maps, modes, Hunters, and Monsters in a dynamic experience that is different every time you play. Players choose a side, Monster or Hunter, and play through a series of five matches across all maps and modes in the game, with each victory or loss directly impacting the remaining matches in Evacuation with benefits to either the hunter or monster side. Each additional play through of Evacuation results in different combinations of mission types, environments, and map affects, totaling over 800,000 possible combinations. Because Evacuation includes every element of Evolve in one dynamic, unique package, it is highly repayable as a multiplayer, cooperative, and solo experience.


Goliath is a physically imposing, strong and aggressive biped with the ability to leap great distances and climb just about any object in Shear.Goliath’s attacks take advantage of its physicality and include firebreath and rock throw as well as both a leap and charge attack.


Kraken is a ranged monster, able to unleash calculated attacks from both ground and air. Using aerial abilities to levitate and fly makes Kraken especially deadly, but dangerous melee combos also make Kraken formidable on the ground. As a master of dark energy, Kraken fights the hunters with bolts of lightning, banshee mines, an aftershock attack, and forceful vortex waves to inflict maximum devastation.

??? – 2K and Turtle Rock Studios are excited to reveal the third Monster in Evolve very soon. Stay tuned!
Individual Game Modes

Hunters are called in to eliminate a single Monster. The Monster flees, kills wildlife, and eats to gain energy and stage up. The Hunters aim to track, trap and kill the monster before it gets too big. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or the Monster evolves to Stage Three and destroys the power relay.

The Hunters have been called in to destroy Monster eggs that have been discovered in the area. The Alpha Monster must defend the eggs and can even hatch one to gain a Goliath minion to fight at its side. The round ends when one team is eliminated, or all of the eggs and minion are destroyed.

The Hunters are called in for a search and rescue mission. A Monster has attacked the facility and is still in the area, and groups of colonists have fled into the wilderness. Hunters need to locate, revive and lead each group of survivors to a rescue shuttle. The round ends when the majority of survivors have been either rescued or killed.

The transport ship is loaded with civilians and fueling up. A horde of Goliath minions led by a Stage 3 Alpha Monster attempts to destroy the fuel pad, which is protected by two reinforced walls, each powered by a generator. The hunters defend the generators and fuel pad until the ship can finish fueling. If the ship finishes fueling or the Alpha Monster is killed, the Hunters win. If the generators and fuel pad are destroyed, the Monster wins.

Evolve will ship with 16 different maps that span four unique biomes: forest, desert, acid and ice. 12 of these maps can be played in Hunt, Nest, and Rescue modes. Four additional maps were built specifically for Defend mode.
