Evolve going Free-2-Play

Evolve goes free-to-play, beta starts tomorrow | PC Gamer (You can find more info on their site and by googling)

They also seem to retweak things for F2P. I personally welcome this as the game was quite fun during beta / free weekend, but not nearly worth of 60 (+ DLCs).

On top of the game going f2p, it has been completely redesigned.

I've been whoring it out this morning. The game now plays out much more fluidly, balanced, and you no longer spend 30 minutes running around on the map waiting for the monster to finally attack the relay.

Most notable changes:
- Every character now has a dome, with a shared timer
- The class abilities now affect everyone in a x-meter radius, rather than only helping yourself
- The maps have shrunk in size. Roughly 50-70% smaller
- The perk system has been completely overhauled. You can now choose 3 perks (from minor to medium to major), each which can be upgraded through ingame currency (awarded by leveling/winning/playing in general).And the perks actually have a notable impact this time.

Along with a bunch of other stuff. Full patch notes here

I would highly recommend anyone to at least try it out. Especially now that it's free.


P.S: If you bought the game before it went F2P, you are now classified as a "founder". Meaning you get all hunters, monsters, DLC's and future DLC's for free. Like 60% of all fucking skins in the game, as well as a bunch of founder-only skins.
P.S.S: Don't worry, still plenty of shit to unlock

- Every character now has a dome, with a shared timer

Hmm how does this work exactly? If anybody in team uses the dome the timer resets? Sounds bit griefish / something that will cause headache.

And have they reduced the amount of uh, "trap areas" in maps? Eg. tight caverns and whatnot where monster has no cover whatsoever. That size reduction sounds bad at first sight but I guess it works out well.

It works out surprisingly well.


And honestly, tight caverns are where monsters really dominate the hunters :P
Anyhow, everything simply plays out a lot better. Despite what it may sound like at first.

Thanks for the answers, sounds better than what I thought ^^.

And good to hear that. I tried Evolve on friend's PS4 and it seemed to be about selecting setup X which dominated almost any monster or so. (PS: Subjective scrub comment).

Eh. Monsters only get 4 attacks, so the amount of variety is not extreme. Just like how hunters only have 3 perks. I see it more as a "choose what I optimize, and let the strategy/tactics do 90% of the work". Anyhow I personally don't see it as problematic at all. Especially when you consider how many hunters and monsters there are now.
The games seem to play out almost 50/50 for me, with the composition of the hunters constantly changing around as well. But that's just what I've been experiencing.

Free to play was definitely a good move for them, IMO. I played the game's original Beta and opted not to buy it. Now, I'm hooked on it; been playing it exclusively for the past few days.
What's the chances we'll get the damage stats for Evolve now that it's increased in popularity 200-fold? Is there any limitation due to game engine that prevents stats being found?
Pwnage of the utmost kind.

Most basic stats can be found on the wiki, for example: Goliath - Evolve Wiki - Wikia

Not sure how one would go about extracting things. We need a smarty for that.

Eeeeh I am quite busy with doing BF1 thingys correctly, and Evolve has quite a bit of differently behaving weapons/gadgets so I doubt too much can be fully automated (vs. BF/Frostbite games where all weapons follow pretty much the same blueprint). Aaaand the linked wiki seems to provide good stats as it is ^^
