Turtle Rock Studios is a much beloved, if not much talked about, developer. This team has been around for a little more than a decade but their works have had a big impact on the PC gaming community. During their time under Valve's control they created much of the CounterStrike content you know and love and, in 2008, released Left 4 Dead which many will argue is one of the best zombie games of all time. In 2009 they officially reformed as a studio after having been broken up by Valve and, in between bits of Left 4 Dead 2 downloadable content, began work on their spiritual successor to their zombie-focused franchise. Evolve is the result.
A five player asymmetrical game with a strong scifi flair, Evolve pits a team of four hunters sent to an alien world to hunt down a large monster that's controlled by a player. As a match progresses, the monster can evolve and become more powerful, eventually becoming a hulking behemoth that's very difficult to kill. Imagine, if you will, the ultimate Predator game wherein the Predator slowly changes into a creature far larger and deadlier than the Tank from Left 4 Dead.
The game looks great so far as it well should be considering Evolve runs on CryEngine. Stay tuned for more coverage including during tonight's podcast.
