Edwin from Official Xbox Magazine has played Evolve, the new co-op shooter from Turtle Rock for Xbox One, and he is excited about it. Here's why.
This looks rather cool.
Yeah, I'm interested now.
The game seems cool.
Knew the game was gonna be good while you haters hated on it when first revealed lol
Whaaa the fuuuu... I never heard of this game or at least never paid attention to it but damn that looks fun. I just went from oblivious to interested in one video. I really wasn't interested in many other multiplatorm titles, glad there's another good looking game coming to both consoles.
I'm interested if I get to play the alien in every game...
Game definitely jumped up a few rungs on my "anticipation meter".
This looks ultimately satisfying. I was sold when the birds rustled out of the trees.
It definitely capture that "next gen intensity". The lush of the plantation, rustling in the bushes and trees. Spotting the monster at random. L4D seem to do similar things but seems like on next gen its more real time and random than L4D.
Looks like L4D without pouncing/grabbing, which I'm not sure how to feel about (because pouncing/grabbing was an effective method of balancing the game). Well, anyway, cautious optimism.
They had me at "creators of left 4 dead" when they announced the game. Now, after seeing the gameplay videos, pre-order locked down.
Me too, but the 4 v 1, makes this looks like Survivors vs. a Tank. And Tanks are easily dispatched with no other infected around (especially a w/o boomer) or no cars / etc... The monster has more attack options, but the hunters have more maneuverability as well. I would have liked it more if it were 4 v 4, but we'll have to see.
Long arms, Haymakers, and curve rocks that's all you need to wreck shit with a Tank on l4d who needs support. OT: The Goliath is only one of the player controlled monsters you can choose from so can't wait to see the other options.
@Rivitur A tank on L4D gets murdered without support, or cars. Which often results in the tank finding something to climb up on and toss rocks, eventually lose control, or the survivors running back to an open field where the Tank gets murdered.
Pro-tip: The first thing you do is kill the medic. Also, the "tank" isn't alone in this game. There are other creatures seen that could attack the humans with you.
Den if survivors. LOS the curve rock always come in handy also the number of times I've seen a tank go in and wipe on confogl is a ton.
You pre-order games that easily? You know there's no need to pre-order games anymore these days. They don't run out of stock like they used to a decade ago.
Well, evolve does have pre-order bonuses, I am a huge, huge fan of the original left 4 dead, and I love the idea behind evolve, so yeah...I pre-ordered. If I see something I like, I'll pre-order it. I can always just cancel it if I end up seeing the game becoming something I don't like.
I'm all in..
Why do you pre-order? Was an incentive announced?
What incentive does he need other than he knows he'll pick up the game when it comes out. Some people just like to put money on stuff they know they are going to buy. What's the deal with people hating on pre-ordering? It's his/her money, who cares!
People pre order so they can slowly pay off a game without dropping a huge chunk of change at a single time. Why you need that explained to you I'll never guess.
I pre-ordered it because the gameplay videos and the trailer looked awesome and also Shopto were including extras.
Is this an Xbox One exclusive, or is it going to be available on PC too? Looks rather fun!
Ps4 Xbox one and pc
Sweet! Thanks for the quick reply.
woo! looks fun
My god that would suck if Microsoft owned this game lol
L4D was biggest on Steam. Of course this will be on pc.
Wow! That new Source Engine, Running good on Xbox One, heres hope to 1080p along with 60fps.
This is the same gameplay video that all over the internet. This is running on a PC.
This isn't running on the source engine. They are using the CryEngine 4.
3 or 4?
Looks interesting, love the beasts scarring the birds away to give the humans a understanding where the monsters are, looks cool hopefully not repetitive though
Sounds as though that repetitiveness relies on you and your teammates. You can come up with different sorts of strategies and take the monster down a different way each time. At least, that's my understanding of where the real fun is when it comes to this tactical game.
The animations and lighting are amazing Im all in too
that's the same video that says ps4 gameplay but its running on pc.
Looks like a winner to me.
I was kinda worried this game would suffer from the L4D syndrome of being crazy fun out the gate but getting old quick. But I don't see that happening.
This is definitely PC footage all the outlets been using the same PC footage
This is definitely PC footage
I love this!
God this looks so epic to play!It takes a big dump on all fps releasing this year for me
I'm not sure I like the idea of having only one enemy vs a group.
I've been interested since Turtle Rock said they were going to do their own game without Valve where do I sign up?
This looks like so much fun to play. I can't wait to see more....with that said, I really wish they would make another L4D...
Actually Turtle Rock only made l4d(1) the reason l4d2 came out a year after was because l4d2 was Valve's way of saying this is Valve making the l4d they wanted and not the one they paid for In l4d(1). It's the reason they released the l4d(1) maps on l4d2 to make people forget about l4d(1).
Im getting more and more into online co-op gaming than competitive mp. I blame borderlands :)
I want it in my ps4 now, 1080p plz
I don't think they can price a single-mode, multiplayer-only game at $60. If it's $40 though, I'd probably get it.
The environments look pretty awesome but how many? Do you get weapon upgrades? Looks like it will be a brilliant online experience for all. ; )
The action, the general concept, and the art design are all top notch, but there's something bothersome about the lighting of the game. I guess it doesn't have anything to do with the Cryengine 4's limitations, seeing as how amazing visuals Ryse had. Maybe the developers have been a bit lazy with applying different gloss and refelection mapping settings? Somehow everything from the vegetation to humans to monsters seem too uniform in how light behaves on their surfaces. Also, where is the radiosity?
This looks really fun, day 1 for me.
I liked the subtle detail of the birds giving away the monsters position. I like the class-based co-op gameplay, the addition of a medic class (My preferred) is good news for me. I'm curious about the other types of monsters, both in variety and amount.
I've been all in for this game since I read up on it in GameInformer.
Have a few concerns about it. Mainly technical. Because the game solely focuses on one enemy controller by a player. What happens if that player of AFK or disconnected? Does someone else instantly fill the spot from the 'marines' side of things?
Really amazing looking, but the graphics bother me a bit. Not sure if dark or black crushed. Looks really back crushed to me,
Maybe it is, but the game is likely supposed to be really dark anyway.
So they turned Island Defence from Warcraft 3 and turned it into a full game? cool.
