Arena Mode cuts to the chase.

31 Comments

Publisher 2K and developer Turtle Rock Studios today released a new, free mode for its four-players versus one monster multiplayer shooter Evolve.

The new Arena Mode lets players get right to the action, pitting hunters against the monster in best-of-three matches set in fixed arenas.

The fixed arenas are set on 14 of Evolve's maps for a total of 70 locations to fight in. Hunters enter the arena and face off against a monster that starts the match at Stage 2, and simply battle to the death. The round ends when either the monster or all the hunters are eliminated, and the next match starts in a new fixed arena on the same map.

Arena Mode is completely free on all platform and is available starting today. If you want to watch Arena Mode in action, check out Evolve's Twitch channel here starting at 12:00 PM Eastern Time.

Earlier this month, 2K parent company Take-Two said Turtle Rock will continue to support Evolve throughout the year with new characters, modes, and more. Evolve has shipped around 2.5 million copies since its release across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC back in February, and the publisher called it a "key long-term franchise for 2K."
