New interactive Evolve trailer showcases 4v1 multiplayer

Get a good look at 2K’s forthcoming PS4 squad shooter in action

We’re very excited to share a complete match of Evolve with the world for the first time. We’ve done something pretty cool with this trailer by allowing viewers to switch between the feed of any of our four hunters or the monster. We’ve also included a sixth channel to watch along with some great commentary from Aaron “Ayesee” Chambers and Chris Ashton, the co-founder and design director at Turtle Rock Studios.

The concept of four hunters taking on one giant, evolving monster really sets Evolve apart from other games. This trailer does a great job of demonstrating just how unique each role is, and we’re excited for gamers to start getting an idea of which side of the 4v1 battle they want to be on, keeping in mind that there’s going to be even more hunters and monsters to choose from when Evolve ships this fall.

In this trailer, you get a look at the first four hunters in Evolve: Val the Medic, Griffin the Trapper, Markov the Assault, and Hank the Support. Each hunter plays a unique role in the fight, and each of them has unique weapons and items used to take down the monster. You also get to see Goliath, our first monster. Goliath’s attacks include a charge, leap attack, rock throw and fire breath. In this 4v1 trailer, the two sides tangle in an awesome battle on our map Forest Ruins.

It was great seeing the reception for Evolve at PAX East, where we had a massive booth that included an enormous to-scale statue of a stage 3 Goliath. We drew huge crowds when we broadcast matches on the big screen above our booth while two 2K Production Staff shoutcasted the play-by-play of the 4v1 action.

We hope that today’s trailer brings that awesome PAX East experience to viewers around the world.

  • I need this in my PS4 NOW!

  • Please add bot implementation as online only is a massive mistake. A game like that will only last for so long. Look at MAG and SOCOM.

  • Looks stunning. @MaxDiehard this game is made by the ones who made Left 4 Dead. Both Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 are still played by thousands of people. Even after 5-7 years. These guys know how to make a lasting online only title.

    • The Left4Dead games aren’t online only, and they’re PC games. Console is a different story. Online dies quick on them.

    • And there’s a reply button for a reason. You don’t need to make reference to names anymore.

    • Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 are also on Xbox 360. The online is still alive and kicking today. Both very active 2 more than 1 but both still active.

    • @Max: the reason that MAG and SOCOM died is because there were expensive dedicated servers to run. With only 5 players I don’t see that being the case here, it’s going to be one player hosting and the other four connecting to him.

      But I agree with you. I don’t always like to team up with random people, it doesn’t quite work for me. I’ve been playing a lot of Warframe recently and a huge part of that experience is my wishing that more people knew what the hell they were doing. The option for a private game with AI filling the empty spaces is a must.

  • Looks awesome. Co op that’s as dynamic as multiplayer. Don’t think I’ll enjoy playing as the beast that much but gonna love the hunter teamplay. Hope there’s more environments than this jungle too. Day one purchase for me.

  • Definitely Intrigued!

  • Not interested in 4v1. Give me co-op 4vAI and I’ll bite.

    That’s why I kept playing L4D, not for the lame ‘versus’ experience.
