Hey all,

I wanted to start a thread for this game because I am really excited about it and I am sure that there are others just as excited about it as I am. Especially because it will be on PC!

Here is the website for the game:

www.evolvegame.com

Here is a trailer showing 4 new "Hunters" from a few days ago:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/05/25/evolve-trailer-reveals-four-new-hunters-shows-them-doing-what-they-do-best/

This is certainly an entire new multiplayer game style of game and I personally think it will be awesome, especially considering it is very rare for there to be a truly new game these days.

I will do my best to keep this page updated with any news that I see about this game.

Trying to enjoy the simple things in life.

I have wondered if there would be a game like that for years.

However, I dont think we will see that anytime soon. Not because it isn't possible, but because the corporate giants don't want it to happen to try and encourage the sale of more copies for their respective systems.

I'm looking forward to this game as well. Not sure if I'll get it on PC or Xbox one yet. A majority of gaming friends still have not seen the PC light and will get it for the console. I like having the option to get it on what I want

Late on this quote, but it's been tried before. Microsoft tried it during QA for Shadowrun, and the PC players were simply destroying the console players, so they decided against it. I think for a shooter, it will never happen.

Final Fantasy XI does it though, PS2, XB360, and PC players all play on the same servers, but that's an MMO.

I'm definitely on board with this one. And PC is the only way I'll swing with it. It looks like what I was talking about in the thread I started about "evolving" the experience with the kind of games I really enjoy playing. I will definitely be a Sniper only in the group I play with. Can't wait to see How and how much the game allows the sniper to outflank the opposition. The videos look great!

Being very interested in this one I watched a couple hours of gameplay during e3 and totally lost interest in it.


I wanted it to be more like L4D but it's actually far more tactical and thus evolved into something more involved.

I did, and that's pretty much all I can say. It's under a very strict NDA, although as far as I know you can say you got in.

Played the alpha and never really got into it; love the idea of it though. Will give the beta another shot, hopefully matchmaking times decrease...

I was excited about this game when I played the alpha earlier, but now I'm just to tied up to get it with other games. So I'll be passing on this one. I think the biggest problem is not enough of my friends are not going to bother getting it so at that point I don't think I will since this game is based around teamwork and I'm not one for playing with random people all the time.

I completely agree with your pov about teamwork oriented games. I have zero interest in them. A game can look fantastic to me. But if I see those dreaded words...multiplayer or co-op only...I avoid them. That's why I never touched TitanFall, Destiny, Evolve and a few others. IMO developers who go down the path of teamwork oriented games exclusively...are risking a lot.


Now with all of that said...I am actually looking forward to trying games like the above mentioned in VR with Oculus Rift. That format could be the real game changer for teamwork based games. And also make Single Player games much more interesting. Because Exploration and environment will take center stage much more in the Single Player VR experiences. In that regard, I'm thinking much more immersive and longer duration versions of games like Mass Effect...Half Life and Bioshock. That literally just bolt on to prior game executions and keep on growing and expanding in the same VR ecosystem.
