New IP from Left 4 Dead creators coming to Xbox One, PS4, and Steam in 2014

CryEngine-powered sci-fi multiplayer shooter Evolve revealed; "the hunt will continue," website teases.

The next project from Left 4 Dead creator Turtle Rock Studios has been officially revealed.

The game, which runs on some form of Crytek's CryEngine, is called Evolve and it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in fall 2014. The game's website teases, "the hunt will continue."

Evolve is a sci-fi multiplayer-focused shooter, according to a teaser for the project from Game Informer. In the game, a four-player crew of alien hunters take on a player-controller monster that grows in strength as matches progress. Hunters will have their own unique items and abilities, while the monster will have "devastating" attacks to use against players. Like Left 4 Dead before it, Evolve is also being built with replayability in mind.

Grand Theft Auto parent company Take-Two Interactive purchased Evolve from THQ during the company's bankruptcy auction in January 2013 for nearly $11 million.

Eh, although they came up with the idea, Left 4 Dead didn't really materialize until Valve bought the studio, and the superior sequel was made entirely by Valve. So I don't know how excited to be about this game.

Yessss! I love multiplayer, and Left 4 Dead did that quite well. The same devs and a new concept should be good.

Not real excited about the whole alien theme. I'd have much preferred zombies to aliens. Oh well.

I would of loved a new left for dead game :(

I still play l4d1-2 from time to time but...

finding a server with good lag is hard

finding a server with good lag and not modded is really hard

finding a server with good lag, not modded and good players is just fucking impossible.

DON'T PLAY EXPERT IF YOU SUCK GOD DAMNIT!!

I hope they cancel the Xbone version or severly gimp it to not bring down the PS4 and PC versions.

Nothing to see here, move along! I clicked for one reason only, I saw ...and Steam in the topic, so I kinda thought this will be one of the first SteamOS (Linux) games announcement, but no.

Yay, another multiplayer shooter.  This was really a worthwhile announcement Game Informer.  I...don't think...I can't even contain all this enthusiasm.  My face is literally stretched into a mile wide grin right now.

@Evil_Sidekick Yup. Because playing with/against real people is totally mindless while playing AI isn't.

@Dasim64 agree. its like CoD had zombies, every game had zombies, CoD now has aliens ya... -_-

@Dasim64You can only get so creative with zombies before they feel alien. This way they can imagine whatever they want :P

@ace-meza Some games doesn't need singleplayers, like Left 4 Dead and Battlefield games for example. No need for the developpers to waste time on sp mode when the game is meant to be played with other people...

If DICE would of scrapped the sp of bf4, maybe they would of had more time fixing the game and we wouldn't of got that turd.

@ace-mezaunless im mistaken turtle rock studio developed the AI bots for counterstrike condition zero, source, and l4d (as well as the first game before bought by valve) so I reckon there will be some kinda offline mode, even if it's just for practice.

Whoopteedo! I guess you are waiting for yet another 3rd Person Action game where you go on more fetch quest, running quest and killing these guys quest right?

@Klikandclick 

Did you overread the part with the player controlled monster, which grows in strength over time?

I will not say this will be redefining, but still it sounds different than just L4D with aliens. So lets see what this will be all about. There is just a tiny anouncement and you guys act like you already had played the final game.

@frylock1987 @returnofsoma42 No not really.  I just am not a fan of anything with guns in it except maybe Devil May Cry.  I'm more of a traditional type of gamer because I grew in the days of the NES, Sega Genesis Super NES etc.  And I do not play online either.  That about covers it.  However I get where you're coming from.  If you like shooters go for it.

@perceptive_yoda cry engine is diverse agreed but we are not developers,there are several aspects that need to be considered not just detailing

Go play State of Decay on the PC, it uses Cry Engine too, but the graphic was shitty as hell.
