Evolve Adds New Hunter

2K announces the release of Kala, a new support class hunter that's the latest new content addition to Evolve, the four-versus-one shooter from Turtle Rock Studios. This is available as an individual purchase, as part of the Hunting Season 2, or as part of the Evolve: Ultimate Edition, which includes both Hunting Season 1 and Hunting Season 2. This post from last week has details on the character along with a teaser trailer showing her in action. Here's the announcement:
2K and Turtle Rock Studios today announced that Kala, a new Support class Hunter, is now available for Evolve™, the 4v1 shooter in which four Hunters cooperatively fight to take down a single-player controlled Monster. This unique new Support character utilizes abilities similar to those possessed by Evolve’s various Monsters. Kala is available individually or as part of Hunting Season 2*, which also includes Gorgon (Monster), Lennox (Assault class), Jack (Trapper class) and Emet (Medic class).

Dr. Kala Kapur is an expert on Monster biology and has spliced their DNA into her own genome in order to control the Monsters’ abilities and use them in battle. Her array of unique abilities include:

  • Siren Missiles – an improvement on Kraken technology, these airborne missiles home in on nearby enemies. When placed on the ground, they become more powerful, slower moving homing mines;
  • Teleport Pads – an improvement on Wraith technology, these pads allow teammates to move instantaneously from one part of the map to another;
  • Armor Reducer – using Goliath’s armor technology, the Armor Reducer shoots a beam which temporarily removes the Monster’s armor. The armor quickly regenerates once the beam connection breaks.

For complete details on Kala visit the Evolve blog at http://evolvegame.com.

Additionally, players new to Evolve can obtain all currently available and announced playable characters, including Kala, as part of the Evolve: Ultimate Edition. Available now at select North American and Latin American retailers, the Evolve: Ultimate Edition includes the base game, Monster Expansion Pack, Hunting Season 1 and Hunting Season 2.

It's a shame that this is failing as the game was actually quite fun. I think they could have happily made it a bit more like L4D by making the monsters smaller and by letting the teams have more players each.

The asymmetrical gameplay worked well but basically meant if you like playing the monsters you would spend all your time online playing with...no friends.

I liked the stealthy, risk/reward balance of the feeding and evolving system though.

Maybe Evolve 2 will get it right.

I can imagine this game would work well in VR due to the difference in scale between the monsters and the humans and also the verticality of the levels. Yeah I said "verticality", I'm expecting a call from HR at DICE any minute now. Imminutely. Pow!

Never mind.
