This skin (pictured in this post) is an incredibly rare virtual item, as it was previously only available to developers at Turtle Rock Studios.

"We developed these exclusively for our development team," Turtle Rock explained. "This beautiful molten-gold skin helps identify developers in-game and generally make us feel good about the time we put in to making Evolve. It's bold. It's distinct. It's shiny."

The skins will be delivered to players sometime after Sunday but no later than March 14.

Evolve's Hunt for Gold Weekend event is the first in a series of upcoming community challenges that will take place over the upcoming months, Turtle Rock says. "Future challenges may require the Evolve community to collectively achieve specific in-game milestones for in-game rewards," the developer explained.

Evolve, developed by the team that created Left 4 Dead, is available today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
