2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios on Thursday announced that a host of new content is coming to monster-hunting game Evolve on March 31, including more playable characters, additional maps, the Observer mode, and more. A breakdown of what's coming is below.

Available March 31:

  • Fourth playable Monster: Behemoth. Free for everyone who pre-ordered Evolve. Otherwise, players can buy the monster for $15 through the Monster Expansion Pack.
  • Four new playable Hunters: Included with the $25 Hunting Season Pass or $7.50 each.
    • Torvald -- A Cyborg Assault character with a mortar cannon for an arm
    • Crow -- A Trapper with a pet Batray for tracking Monsters
    • Slim -- A genetically modified combat Medic
    • Sunny -- A Support character equipped with a mini-nuke grenade launcher
  • Two free maps: The Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry. These will launch first on Xbox One before they arrive on PC and PlayStation 4 on April 30.
  • Free Observer Mode: Designed to support and expand broadcasting.

Players who do not buy Behemoth or the new Hunters are still able to play against or alongside the new characters. 2K says this will add "depth and replayability for the entire Evolve community without dividing players based on what additional content they own."

Evolve released on February 10 and, according to parent company Take-Two, enjoyed an "incredibly successful" launch. It was the second best-selling physical game in February, outsold only by The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, at least in the United States.
