Evolve is looking interesting

I saw this trailer for Evolve last week and was immediately intrigued. I’ll admit, the first thing I noticed was the awesome song – Mother by Lissie, originally by Danzig. The game’s developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the developer behind Left 4 Dead.

Evolve is a 4v1 shooter in which four players control human hunters and one controls a monster. It’s sort of like a boss battle if the boss was controlled by a player. The monster can evolve by hiding from the hunters and eating smaller monsters, and as it evolves, it gets stronger. This means the hunters want to find the monster quickly; the monster wants to hide and evolve until it’s strong enough to face the players.

This second video has a little more information about the game itself and includes actual gameplay. I can’t say with any certainty if it’ll actually be good, but it sounds pretty cool!
