The Evolve game will be officially launching on next-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles as well as PC systems on February 10th 2015.
The Xbox One beta will grant access to the game’s Hunt mode, allowing players to unlock new Monsters and Hunters as they play. The unlocks will then carry over to the final retail version of the game.
From January 17, the Xbox One beta gameplay will also offer access to Evacuation, Evolve’s five mission campaign that “combines the full array of maps and modes into a unique and highly replayable experience.” say the games developers.
“Evolve is set on Shear, a distant planet that humanity has traveled to in the distant future and is attempting to colonize. The colonies are soon attacked by malevolent alien Monsters, who do not take too kindly to having their territory invaded.
The Evolve game will feature a variety of maps, one of which being a large jungle, with some industrial elements where players can take shelter. There are various power ups that can be taken by both hunters and monster players through killing the local wildlife.
Victory is achieved for the hunters by killing the monster, while the monster can either kill the four hunters, or complete a secondary objective such as destroying a human base or power plant. The hunters are made up of four classes: a trapper, a support, a medic, and an assault class. Each class will contain a variety of different hunters with different play-styles.”
