The February cover of Game Informer has been unveiled, and on it is Evolve, a next-gen exclusive cooperative shooter from Turtle Rock Studios, the studio that brought us Left 4 Dead, which I think we can all agree is one of the finest co-op games of all time. This new project — acquired during the THQ auction last year — takes their multiplayer expertise to the sci-fi genre, where a team of four alien hunters are pitted against a player-controlled monster. It might sound a little one-sided, but that’s remedied by the fact that the creature gets more powerful (it evolves) over the course of the match.
Each hunter brings with him/her a unique arsenal of equipment and abilities. This sounds a little like Gears of War’s Beast mode, if that only pit four Cogs against a continuously evolving Berserker. I’m sold.
Evolve is slated to release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this fall. For more on the game, head on over to Game Informer.
