  • News Evolve's No Longer Going Free-to-Play on PS4

    Devolve

    Evolve is finished. The first-person shooter which gobbled up Game of the Show awards like they were going out of fashion has been dropped by developer Turtle Rock – mere months after going free-to-play on PC. It's safe to assume that the complimentary release didn't catch fire quite like the studio wanted it to. This all means that the...

  • News Evolve Will Be Playable for Free on PS4 Soon

    Admits original release caused a "s***storm"

    As expected, Evolve really is going free-to-play – but not on the PlayStation 4 just yet. While PC players will be able to download the complimentary client's beta starting today, fans of Sony's system will need to wait until Turtle Rock's got everything in order. Once it's satisfied with the PC...

  • News Is PS4 Shooter Evolve About to Go Free to Play?

    Level up

    Remember Evolve? It was that game by the ex-Left 4 Dead devs that won a slew of awards prior to release, and then was swiftly ignored by gamers and the media once it actually launched. Well, it looks like it's about to make a comeback – or at least try to, we suppose. Turtle Rock, the studio behind the shooter, has put a countdown on the...

  • DLC Review Is Evolve's DLC a Colossal Scam?

    Monstrous pricing

    Just over a month since we donned the monster hunting boots of Evolve, we're now greeted with the anticipated Hunting Season Pass and, for those of you who pre-ordered, the Monster Expansion pack. The core release was received in a rather mixed fashion by most – gleaning a solid if unspectacular 6/10 in our review – but with...

  • News Hunt Down Evolve's Next Big DLC Batch With its Newest Trailer

    A bit of a behemoth

    Evolve's getting a brand new monster soon, and it looks pretty devastating. Named the Behemoth, this rock-skinned beast can roll itself up into a big old wrecking ball of destruction. The official gameplay trailer that we've embedded shows the creature off in all of its glory, while also walking us through the new hunters and...

  • News The Wraith Receives a Mighty Nerf with Evolve's New PS4 Patch

    No more nightmares

    Arriving on PlayStation 4 next week, Evolve's new patch applies numerous balancing tweaks, but the headline here is that it dishes out a significant downgrade to the Wraith - a monster which many players feel has been overly effective at wiping out its enemies since the game launched last month. Read our review of Evolve...

    Review Evolve

    Play your f***ing class

    In a generation littered with server issues, campaign length fears, and a heightened interest in getting more for your money, it seems odd that a title would launch with some online-only multiplayer modes, no real campaign, and more DLC than you can probably afford. That's exactly what Evolve has done. However, this...

  • News Sony's Sending Free Evolve PS4 Themes to EU PlayStation Plus Members

    Level up your device's dashboard

    PlayStation Plus more or less pays for itself when you look at the free games that get given away on a monthly basis, but the platform holder regularly sends out the odd surprise to engaged members. This Evolve PlayStation 4 theme that's being distributed in Europe is a nice little extra on top of the Instant Game...

  • News You Can Spend Over $60 on Evolve's Day One DLC

    On the hunt

    Evolve's doing itself no favours is it? While the four-versus-one shooter has received some largely positive reviews from critics, its maddening pre-order campaign and the sheer amount of different day one editions that were available across consoles and PC put the game in a negative light for many potential buyers. What we're really...

  • Round Up Evolve PS4 Reviews Tread Very, Very Lightly

    But is Turtle Rock's latest still beastly?

    In a way, we can't help but feel sorry for Evolve. While it doesn't sound like the Turtle Rock shooter's going to have any crippling problems – of a technical nature, anyway – the four-versus-one affair has, in many ways, taken the fall for the failings of so many of last year's big games. The majority...

  • News Evolve Will Require a 3GB Patch on PS4 to Hit Its Final Form

    Bulking up on bandwidth

    Ah, good old Evolve – the critical darling that just seems to have gotten smaller and smaller in importance since its initial unveiling. While we're yet to be convinced by Turtle Rock's first-person shooter, though – unsurprisingly, it seems that our review code has gotten 'lost in the post' – we daresay that a fair...

  • News Did You Know That Evolve Has a Single Player Mode?

    Who needs friends

    It may come as a shock, but PlayStation 4 co-op based shooter Evolve actually has a mode that you can play all by yourself, without having to interact with real people. Whether you knew this existed or not, you can get a good look at it in the 20 minute gameplay video that we've embedded. You can apply the solo settings to any...

  • News Evolve Reveals the Beauty of the Beast in Cinematic Trailer

    Wraith to go

    Turtle Rock's asymmetrical shooter Evolve is being pressed onto PlayStation 4 discs as we type – apparently. We assumed that the four-versus-one affair was still some way off, but according to publisher 2K Games, it's set to stomp onto store shelves from 10th February in Europe and North America.

  • News Evolve's Alpha Devolves on PS4 Due to Firmware Update 2.00 Issues

  • News Here's How to Get into PS4 Shooter Evolve's 'Big Alpha' Test

    Beta be good

    It seems that Alpha and Beta tests are all the rage these days. Destiny arguably mastered this technique, with countless players pre-ordering the title in order to get a taste of its extra-terrestrial escapades. In truth, we reckon this is pretty good idea, as it allows any potential online functionality problems to be hashed out before...

  • First Impressions Turtle Rock Is Transforming Co-Op with Evolve on PS4

    Evolve or die

    Boss battles are quite common in games. Usually equipped with a sequence of rules, they give you the opportunity to face a gargantuan challenge in search of closure or progression. So what happens when you open this ideology up and create a game that’s a constant non-scripted, unpredictable, and intense boss fight? Well, Turtle Rock...
