Xbox One/PS4/PC game Evolve gets a cool interactive gameplay trailer

2K Games launches new trailer that lets you switch between six different channels to see how an entire Evolve match plays out.

2K Games today released a pretty neat interactive gameplay trailer for its upcoming 4v1 Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC multiplayer shooter Evolve. The trailer lets you switch between six different channels to see how an entire Evolve match plays out.

Your viewing options are: Griffin the Trapper, Markov the Assault, Hank the Support, Val the Medic, or the Goliath monster. You can also watch a sixth channel, which combines all five perspectives and features commentary from the game's developers. We have embedded one of the trailers above, but you'll need to visit the game's YouTube channel to see all six perspectives.

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. Turtle Rock Studios said this setup represents the "evolution of multiplayer."

You can find out for yourself when Evolve launches later this year. 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive acquired Evolve from THQ for $10.8 million during its bankruptcy auction last year.

The Soldiers look like they are ripped off Firefall :) but still an awesome game

I  don't get how a giant monster like that had to beat the guy for ages and still he didn't die the player went into last stand. Looks good though I think the monster of that size should be a brutal killing machine. I mean the first boulder he throw should've surely killed the player instantly.

It's a shame this game isn't getting more coverage. It is already buried on the front page under 2 Gears of War articles and more Naughty Dog nonsense.

I have a lot of faith that this game will be great, maybe not awesome. But definitely great.

The environment should favor the monster and any living creature there should attack the humans, making it difficult to just hunt down and attack the monster.

This great multiplayer game is an answer to kids that think adding more player in the game means better multiplayer!

I hope they have smaller monsters, so it is easier to hide and take each shooter out one by one.

As someone who still plays L4D2, I can safely say I am extremely excited for this game.

No SP / story = no interest at all in this.

looks good but thats the game just MP  mode no story single play mode so really people will get bored of the game in couple months so i pass on this and pass any MP becuase not my thing. And done by 2k games and servers of this game go down next couple years.

@LiquidGold  Maybe they did that for the sake of the trailer, and it will probably be tweaked by release date,

@LiquidGold My thoughts exactly, seems like this games balance is tilted heavily toward the human players.

@cboye18  this is something innovative though...something ill probably just watch through stream but definitely interesting

@jrcast84 ......Did you not watch it .....that was all there hell one of the players was OHK from that river monster

@jrcast84  I remember when Game Informer did an article on it, Turtle Rock did say that there would be multiple monsters as well as multiple members of each class to choose from.

@Gomtor  There is a singleplayer story. It's basically the same as Left 4 Dead gameplay except it's 4 vs 1 which can be all players or mix of players and AI.

Cool story.... All games get boring after while

@playstationzone  I don't know. There are still a ton of people playing L4D2 on PC. Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about lol.

When did they ever said there was no singleplayer? It's a co-op multiplayer the same way as Left 4 Dead (hence the same creators). It can be all players or mix of players and AI with offline mode to play with AI. You guys have huge issues getting informed. The details of this game have been available since Game Informer's month-length coverage.

@poksmote @cboye18  I have to agree that it has something different. I do like the monster part of the game, but it's the FPS element that bugs me. Would've preferred monster vs monster battles.

@zandrxi @jrcast84I have to keep pausing it, since I am at work. But I did see that river monster that was awesome.

@the_real_VIP  Yep, they revealed months ago there's singleplayer: you can play as the monster VS. 4 AI hunters or any other mixing of players and AI.

i think he is trolling ....if not he is just stupid

Especially single player games. No matter how good it is they lack replayability. There are exceptions to the rule. Lately that exception is Metal Gear Solid V: GZ

@the_real_VIP  he said story single player just because something is single player doesn't mean it tells a story its just the same mindless shooting the multi player has it doesn't have a story line with cut scenes that actually tell a story have  interesting characters that you feel "connected" to and maybe if the story is good enough it could even make you emotional maybe even cry the last of us and uncharted series are good examples of games with amazing story lines and story telling however this game looks awesome and i am still buying it i like many types of games whether they have a story line or not

@mr_nee @jrcast84@zandrxiNo I think it was part of the environment, and if you go into certain water areas those river monsters will auto attack.

Doubt it and a game like this doesn't need one man... The story bullshit is so over rated for a lot of games. This game just needs awesome gameplay and a good progression...

@playstationzone While there IS a single player mode, if it were free to play then you'd have people complaining about how they hate free to play and that they like their games to have everything in it and no microtransactions. I don't think that just because there's no campaign that it should meant the developers aren't deserving of a single penny.
