‘Evolve’ Launch Trailer Taps ‘Predator,’ ‘Pitch Black,’ and…Danzig?


Evolve, the new multiplayer shooter from Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios and 2K Games, is a familiar formula: four players cooperatively blast their way through insurmountable odds, although L4D’s zombies have been replaced with extraterrestrial fauna in an intergalactic game hunt.

The additional kicker comes from a fifth player taking on the role of an ever-evolving monster, basically filling in as an end-level boss for the other four to try and fell.  The launch trailer for the game spells out the flavor of the game, which feels like a cross between Predator and Pitch Black set on the world of Pandora from Avatar, all set to a shockingly good female-fronted cover of Danzig’s classic headbanger “Mother.”  I am now officially excited.

Evolve will be released fall 2014 for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
