Evolve F2P is now live



230 concurrent players to 40,800 in one day lol.

Just a little background: Evolve was made by L4D developers, Turtle Rock.

The game was good but it's only good for a few hours of play due to limited content but selling at the full price of $60.
Those who did buy it eventually got bored of the repetitive gameplay and when all new content were behind a DLC paywall, the playerbase ceased to exist.

The publisher then gave the green light to re release Evolve as a Free 2 Play in the hopes of getting casual players back into the game and squeeze more DLC dollars outta them.

Despite all the negatives, one thing remains true. The actual gameplay mechanics is said to be solid good and fun but lacking lasting appeal. Sounds like the perfect casual Creed game to me.

Did the tutorial a couple times. First with controller then M+KB
Queued up solo for 2 matches. Game is good but definitely a play with your friends only type of experience.

First impression is good. Game can be fun, challenging and fights are tactical. Provided human team actually plays as a team. Biggest noob mistake I'm seeing from those 2 matches is the lack of pacing by hunters. Everyone is moving and working at different pace not gang banging the monster in coordination.

Not an issue with a squad but definitely punishing for solo queues with randoms. Punishing as in, a one sided match with one clear outcome - monster wins every time. Which isn't fun because after a while I can imagine the gameplay will get stale fast.

Progression system with unlocks as you level up. Gotta say that default kit is non existent. You need to unlock everything meaning you will start off underpowered. Not sure if inviting friends into a Creed only match will allow leveling. If it doesn't then the grind can be painful.

Evolve is a 4 vs 1 affair. Hunters consist of one medic, one assault, one support and a tracker. Which ones you play is assigned randomly by the server although you can set your preferred role. Game starts off with the monster being the hunted but as time goes by and monster levels up, roles are reversed and the human team ends up being the weaker side. So it's a race against time for humans and survival comeback for monster. Rounds can last between 5 - 15 minutes each depending on skill difference between humans and monster.

In the original version, only trapper can dome the monster and there is no satellite function that points a global finger in the general direction of the target.

Players had to manually track footprints and rely on their trapper's abilities to locate the creature.

I felt that the F2P version of hold down F to auto dome creature even though you don't know where it is too easy. Went to 2K forums and glad that several people are also complaining the same thing.

The suspense of hunting a dangerous animal is now gone in this version.
