Monster-Hunting Game Evolve Gets Some Cool 3D Printing Models

If you've got access to a 3D printer, you can print out the hunters and monsters from Evolve.

by

Developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K Games have announced that you can now 3D print the hunters and monsters from their upcoming first-person monster-hunting game, Evolve.

The designs for the eight announced hunters and two announced monsters are available to download for free on Evolve's website. All you need is access to a 3D printer. If you own one, you can simply load the files into the printer and create the models. Otherwise, you can submit and buy the printed models from 3D printing shops like Sculpteo and Shapeways. From the pictures, the models--especially the Goliath monster figure--look pretty cool.

The hype surrounding Evolve has been steadily growing over the past months. At the E3 conference this year, the game received the E3 Critics Game of the Show award. You can learn more about Evolve with our extensive Next Big Game coverage that includes previews of a bunch of the game's characters.

Evolve launches on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can sign up for the PC alpha right now.

When i see Evolve, with monsters and hunters i remember the tabbletop RPGs, like Mage Awakening or the classic D&D. I spend a lot of afternoon's talking with my friends about Comic Books, Movies, RPGs and most of time Videogames. Every friend have something nice to tell. The most hard thing about beeing a dungeon master is to make the players work together and not fight it other on the real life. 
Looking foward for EVOLVE from the turtle Rock Studios....

My friend just told me today he bought a 3D printer :).

As much as I like what I'm seeing with Evolve, the $60MSRP for a MP-only game is not sitting well with me, and is the major reason why I will not pre-order. I refuse to accept higher MSRP's for games that are giving less content.  May be a definite buy, but no where near the current price scale.

I know what I'll be making at work tomorrow.

Once 3D scanners and printers are affordable, they will go mainstream.

Right now though, you would have to drop about 2 grand for a basic set up.

Did Take Two pay a lot of money for all of this coverage?

@aegis_kleais I don't know where you guys are seeing this multiplayer only crap. A quick google search clearly states you can play vs bots

@aegis_kleais Multiplayer only, and it's 4v1 arena-style with seemingly nothing else to it.  It sounds incredibly shallow for the price.

@pork7 The figures look to be about 5" tall; maybe 12 cm or so. It should be within the build envelope of most 3D printers. You might like building a Prusa RepRap, since they're designed (I believe) for ease of sourcing parts and share lots of components: http://reprap.org/wiki/Prusa_i3_Buyers_Guide

@pork7 there are good basic set ups that are around $800 online. But they are only good for things this size. If you want something to make props or anything bigger than that, you will be around a $1200 range

@Llama345 @aegis_kleais vs. Bots is not the same as having a story campaign, which I've seen nothing about. 


With that said, I too normally skip games with no (or a sad excuse for) single player campaign. But this game seems like it's shaping up into a MP classic. I never pre-order games, so smh, but I may buy this for the full MSRP. Especially if it supports split screen co-op (it probably wont, but Left 4 Dead did, and a kid can dream). It's got the pedigree, and I really like the concept. I also adore teamwork based MP games. They're understandably too far and few between on consoles.

Boy do I wish I could. I might print me out some crystal version of these. You should see the crystal Prime head I printed for my son.
