Evolve to launch in October this year

Co-operative shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead launching for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in October.

Fans who pre-order the game at participating retailers will receive the Monster Expansion Pack, which features an additional skin that unlocks as soon as Evolve is released, as well an additional monster character post-launch.

Developed by Left 4 Dead creator Turtle Rock Studios, Evolve is powered by the CryEngine. It is a team-based game that has four players competing as hunters against a fifth player, the monster. The hunters view the game from a first-person perspective, while the monster sees the world in third-person. For more on Evolve, check out GameSpot's preview.

I won't be playing this particular release, but Zod help those that are planning to purchase all the big october releases.


I'm sorry, wallet, but I've made my decision. Oooh, alright, then. Dragon Age: Inquisition and Batman: Arkham Knight will do...for now. The rest will have to wait their turn.

What is with these developer/companies/publishers (whoever decides release date) choosing October as the "best month to release"? 

Arkham Knight, Dragon Age Inquisition, Shadows of Mordor, Alien Isolation and now Evolve.

It's simply going to be an insane month and our wallets will weep.

Well, an absurd number or games are coming out later this year and I've barely seen anything of this game... Poor planning. We need more to go off of than a few trailers to get excited for the game and consider purchasing.

Is this game multiplayer only or can you just play with 1 or 2 people? Is there any kind of story to this game or is it just about the hunt?

There are too many games coming out in October. The industry will regret that poor planning.

@Darkhol0w Oct/Nov are the two biggest months because of the Holiday season.
