Evolve Is a Next-Gen Exclusive Co-Op Shooter Coming to PS4

Posted by Robert Ramsey

Hopefully evolving a genre

Has the hype behind Game Informer's latest cover been worth it? Well, only you can decide that, but the title in question sounds somewhat promising at least. Built upon co-op multiplayer, Evolve is a shooter developed by studio Turtle Rock, and is being published by 2K Games. The title was one of the new IPs up for auction after publisher THQ was sadly closed.

The idea of blasting ugly aliens in the face with space-guns may not sound all that interesting or original, but Evolve's twist on the concept comes from the fact that the creature in question will be controller by another player, as you and your co-op buddies struggle to destroy it. Not only that, but the alien menace will also evolve into a more terrifying beast over matches - better kill it quick, then. Still, it'll be intriguing to see how the release will be balanced, as a four versus one battle seems a little unfair.

What are your initial thoughts on the next-gen shooter? Are you already gathering fellow alien hunters? Commence the hype in the comments section below.

Is it me or are we getting a lot of alien related games? Aliens, Destiny, Evolve.... Aliens becoming the new zombies

@Sanquine You're right, there does seem to be a plethora of alien based titles on our shores. Maybe the technology is now in place to do the genre justice? This title has potential if the alien character is like a juggernaut; impossible to defeat alone, forcing cooperative play. I like the idea that you evolve if you win as the alien, adrenaline fueled action ahead!

@H4iryDyk3 Hmm, maybe you're right! Sorry for hesitating but i was a little bit sick of the whole zombie genre.. A new aliens or this will have my moolah ofcourse.

@Sanquine Proof of the pudding and all that, only time will tell. I enjoy zombie games personally but, I agree, we were awash; some excellent, but most felt like carbon copies. If these first few titles do well however, im certain some developers will pump out hollow titles that leave a bitter taste, to try and capitalise.

I enjoyed the resistance franchise, avp, nothing else jumps out at me though. This could be interesting. Let's wait and see

@Sanquine don't forget aliens isolation by Creative Assembly hopefully they don't rush it out like they did Rome 2
Its been in development for about 3 years now and supposed to be more like the first film and a survival horror
Edit: now I see the article on the site a few down from this one so I'm sure you already know about it lol
