Evolve will get a day-one patch that will improve several aspects of the game, developer Turtle Rock Studios has announced.

The patch will vary in size depending on the platform, but it's about 3GB, and most notably improves load times, matchmaking, and network bandwidth optimizations.

The patch also addresses several bugs discovered during the Big Alpha and Open Beta, balances Monsters and Hunters, and adds connectivity to the recently released Evolve mobile game.

Finally, the patch reworks the Elite skins for Hunters and Monsters based on feedback from the community. "We’ve updated or outright replaced the assets that were already in the game," Turtle Rock said. "All you need to do to unlock them: EARN THEM."
