If you’re searching for a game not quite like anything else you’ve recently played, look no further than Evolve, an asymmetrical shooter that brings heaps of new ideas to the concept of cooperative multiplayer.
Made by the folks at Turtle Rock Studios – who have a history of delivering clever co-op experiences in Left 4 Dead – Evolve is deceptively straightforward on its surface. A team of four player-controlled, jetpack-equipped hunters trying to save besieged colonists on an alien world are pitted against a raging, super-powerful monster controlled by a fifth player.
Back in 2016, Turtle Rock announced that support for its 4v1 monster-hunting shooter Evolve would end but fans wouldn't let it die.
From NME: "Evolve: Stage 2 had its multiplayer servers shut down back in 2018, but today players are once again able to matchmake and join peer-to-peer multiplayer games.
Several months ago, peer-to-peer functionality was lost for Evolve Legacy, which was the only way fans of the series could play with friends. Upon a multitude of players reaching out to publisher 2K, the issue was eventually fixed earlier in July. It seems 2K have gone a step further now, and reinstated peer-to-peer and matchmaking functionality for Evolve: Stage 2 after four years."
