Turtle Rock Studios and 2K have announced that a massive 3GB launch day patch will be made available for tomorrows launch. That will bring with it a wealth of tweaks, performance enhancements and optimisations to the Evolve game when it launches for players to enjoy.
Even though the Evolve game has already moved into its gold development stage, meaning that it is ready for a retail launch. Its developers are still looking to improve the gameplay after the feedback received during the beta testing phase that took place during January.
The actual size of the launch day patch will depend on your system but is roughly around 3GB in size and contains a wealth of improvements designed to improve gameplay and player experience. The new Evolve patch includes :
– Balancing Tweaks
We already noted this in an interview with Turtle Rock’s Chris Ashton, but we are constantly adjusting things in the background so that every Hunter and every Monster is finely tuned. What we learned about what’s being done to Wraith alone was eye-opening. ( Check out the Open Beta infographic and Q&A here.) A lot of the data gathered from the Big Alpha and Open Beta weekends helped us make these tweaks.
– Game and Level-loading Optimizations
As we strive to push the engine and cram as much as possible into your Evolve experience, we’re also working are to optimize performance on your system. These improvements range from load times to improving matchmaking and network bandwidth optimizations.
– General Bug Fixes
During the Big Alpha and Open Beta periods we asked you – our community – for your help and feedback. We are addressing bugs found during our tests and we have you to thank for making Evolve that much stronger with this patch.
– New Elite Skins
After the Big Alpha, we wanted to rework the Elite skins for Hunters and Monsters based on feedback we got from the community. The results of those requests are right here in this patch. We’ve updated or outright replaced the assets that were already in the game. All you need to do to unlock them: EARN THEM. Learn more here.
– Connectivity to the Evolve Hunters Quest app
This patch adds connectivity to work with Evolve Hunters Quest. We recently unveiled the game / companion app for Evolve. In one respect, it’s a fun Match-3 puzzle combat game. But it also has ties into the main console game through the my2K servers. Earn experience and watch overhead match replays through the app.
