Left 4 Dead creators tease news for PS4, Xbox One, and PC game Evolve

First look at 4v1 team-based shooter Evolve may come on February 11, according to cryptic trailer.

by

Turtle Rock Studios today launched a teaser trailer that suggests the Left 4 Dead creator will provide a first look at their upcoming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC game Evolve on February 11.

The trailer, posted to the company's YouTube account, lasts just 19 seconds and appears to feature a cover version of Danzig's 1988 hit "Mother." Check it out below and let us know if we missed anything.

Evolve was officially announced in mid-January, but no gameplay has been shown to date. The game is a CryEngine-powered team-based first-person shooter, where four players compete as hunters against a fifth player, the monster. This character will experience the game from a third-person perspective.

Evolve is published by 2K Games, a division of Take-Two Interactive, the company responsible for franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Borderlands, among others. Take-Two purchased the IP rights for Evolve from THQ for $10.8 million last year as part of the publisher's bankruptcy auction.

The game launches this fall for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

The game industry is so ridiculous in the last 20 years. All the people who made the best IP are constantly switching companies and everything good ends up being owned by a different company than the company employing the people who made it. So the rights to L4D, System Shock, Dead Space, Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, Burnout and all these other games end up owned by one group and then the franchise gets destroyed because the people who made it are gone.

L4D is one of freshest, most intens, original and inspiring shooters on the 360/PS3 gen (expert & 4-coop),...

really looking foward to their next game.... 

(was hoping for L4D3, but  maybe they'll bring  this game on the the next level of a "L4D" feeling..)

Does anybody remember a very interesting old 3D pc game, with four alien characters ? Old pc game that you played as a race of aliens and anything you killed/devoured became part of you, played in the days of pentium 3 ? I didnt find anything about it over the internet (not even google googles it) ! The name of that game was "Evovle". I just remembered after seeing this Evolve game ! Is it based on that game's concept and story ?

From what I've read the Monster player goes through three stages of evolution that get progressively stronger by killing enemy players and animals and stuff. There's multiple classes for the Hunters and each class has unique characters. It sounds like Left 4 Dead because it's from the same developers. Using CryEngine means the graphics will be quite good and there will be quite a bit of environmental interaction.

I'm calling this the sleeper-game of 2014 right now.

L4D was pretty fun, but I hope this game will have more depth than just "shoot the special infected before they kill your teammates, while going from point A to point B. Ok now do it again."

I wasn't a fan of L4D in the first place..

PC version of course, this game for the X1/PS4 will obviously be supported for a year then forgotten like TF2 on PS3/360.

@Leonelidas  I hear ya, just got my ps4 a few weeks ago and I refuse to buy another cod or bf game until it is made and built for the ps4, I have 4 cod games and 3 bf games on steam I hardly play, and they are kinda all the same in a way , nice to see something new tried . going to buy thief for sure

@Grenadeh  

yeah,.. Gears, Fable, Dead Space, Resi, FF ect.. wont be the same again..., but DMC was cool, Castlevania Lords of Shadow was ok (part two might even be cool).


....there have been new games, that have evolved better than Resi (Dead Space, ZombiU...).., 

it is a pitty that some of the creativ producers walk away.. (and they don't always make better games where they go to) and a pitty that companies keep making squels that can't match up the the originals... 


the main problem with the "new" game designers is that they look to much at other games of inspiration, and just use some ideas from there and mix them in with some oldschool ideas for the "new" sequels.. (instead of "really trying" to evolve some ideas, ..  Naughty Dog does it right.. they take good game ideas and bring them a step futher or perfectioniz them..)

or "new" game designers don't take the time needed to creat something epical..., great games often evolve over sequals of perfectionizing what the producers are already good at, like TES and Fallout over the years, compared to the first TES...., KOTOR to Mass Effect,.... Kings Flied to Demon's/Dark Souls.., Arkane Studios (from Arx Fatalis to Disonored),. or take a lot of time ot creat something special like L4D (balancing over years), Resi4 (took years to creat) ect...


well, still hope that Turtle Rock Stuidos will be able to make something as epic (and/or similar) as L4D...

@fobbs69  Turtle Rock is a studio that was hired by Valve to make L4D.

@Xirexor That game was called Evolva, and it's available on GOG.  I don't think there is any connection between that game and this new one.

@the_dude526 I don't normally like online shooters but I'm interested in this game.  From what I read, one of the team is a trapping expert, the medic has a healing gun and a sniper rifle, there's a straight up assault guy, and I forget what the other guy does. 

Just really seems innovative and interesting.  If the gameplay is solid, I'll definitely pick it up.  I would want to play the monster of course.

@PayneKiller  

did you try playing (suriviving) it on expert (4-coop)? that's when the game really takes off.. (on normal or solo, it is "boring", but on expert/coop it's one of kind...)

ninboxstation
ninboxstation

@Diegoctba  

didn't play it on expert (coop), did you?...   

(normal and especially solo, it is really is "shitty".. but on expert/4-coop, its a masterpiece.. not many games have such a different feeling to them on higher settings..., normal is only there to get to know the levels, the real gameplay only starts on expert...)

@Grenadeh  

@ good sequels/franchises...

that's why I'm upset with Ubisoft for not pushing the ZombiU franchise.. 

it started of well, like an unpolished diamand..., and could have very well tooken off more than the Demon's/Dark Souls Franchise.. , hell even become the "new" Resident Evil... 

but they don't realise the potential in it's franchise, .. und they f@cked up the PR and cover of ZombiU (and had badluck with a few idiotic metascores... ZombiU is better than Outlast....)

ZombiU is a big pitty.. (they have the talents, the idea, the start laied out, but they're not using it...., if only Nintendo or Regie would understand a bit about core games they'd drop the Eternal Darkness 2 project (if it's still on), which looks lame, ...and pick up ZombiU2 again..., )

@scoobdog02 Have to correct you there: Turtle Rock was acquired by Valve while they were making the game, they are the original creators behind it.

It is a cover. That clearly isn't Danzig.

@rip_fail_tr0ll @TheGovenor  yeah i figured that out. Apparently the name of the cover artist will also be revealed on Feb 11th.

@ninboxstation  He's a troll bro. L4D is obviously one of the best games in the history of gaming, no one disputes that.
