    Left 4 Dead creators reveal new co-op shooter for Xbox One, Evolve

    Evolve, the new co-op shooter from original Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios, has finally been revealed after years of speculation. Acquired from THQ for $10.8 million last year, Evolve will release on Xbox One later this year.
    Evolve is set in a science fiction world where people are forced to face off against behemoth monsters, which grow larger and more powerful over the course of matches. As detailed in the new issue of Game Informer, the ‘Hunt’ gameplay mode will pit four alien hunters up against a monster controlled fifth player. Each player has access to unique items and abilities to help slay the beast, while the monster can fall back on “an assortment of devastating attacks”. Sounds awesome.
    Turtle Rock was originally developing Evolve to be published by THQ. When the publisher went under in 2012, the IP went up for auction where publisher 2K Games acquired it – despite Turtle Rock trying to acquire the Evolve IP for themselves. We’ve been waiting for a game to fill the Left 4 Dead void for a while now – Fuse just didn’t cut it – so we will be keeping a close eye on this one over the coming months, though we can only hope Microsoft sorts out the Party system before this releases.
    You can see all the details on Evolve, including hands-on impressions, in Game Informer’s February 2014 issue, which will be available later today to digital subscribers.

    Few independent studios sport the multiplayer pedigree of Turtle Rock Studios. After years of working on Valve's Counter-Strike series, the California-based developer created Left 4 Dead, a post-apocalyptic shooter that redefined cooperative gaming and landed the number-one spot on Game Informer's Top 30 Co-op Games of All Time list. Now the studio is combining its competitive and cooperative design expertise for a new, next-gen only IP: Evolve. Backed by publisher 2K Games, which paid a whopping $10.8 million for the IP in last year's THQ auction, Turtle Rock is taking full advantage of gamers' powerful new systems.
    The sci-fi multiplayer-focused shooter pits a four-player crew of alien hunters against a separate player-controlled monster that grows larger and more powerful over the course of matches. Each hunter features its own unique items and abilities, and while the monster may be outnumbered, its size and an assortment of devastating attacks make it a more than formidable foe. Like Turtle Rock's previous titles, Evolve is being built with variety and replayabilty in mind; the result is a novel mix of cooperative and competitive multiplayer elements that's unlike anything we've played before. Our exclusive hands-on time with the game's four-versus-one hunt mode left us with plenty to be excited about, and you can get all the details in this month's issue.
    Our 12-page look at Evolve reveals the first hunters, monster, and unique equipment players will get their hands on when the game releases on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this fall. We also have a wealth of exclusive screens and hands-on impressions you won't want to miss. Check out the cover image below for your first hint at what's to come.

    Gonna be a weird game. 5 player asynchronous multi-player competitive, with 4 x 1 matches that play out over several rounds. I'm sort of picturing 4 future soldiers in combat armor going up against Godzilla in a city with each defeat of the monster triggering it to grow bigger until it can be finally brought down.

    The game informer digital article on the game was an interesting read. Playing as the monster should be fun
