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.

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

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.

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.

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

Now that's some crazy ass shit! This totally threw me off at what Evolve was, though it looks awesome.

For the idiots who think it's only multiplayer, NO. They said it back when it was revealed there's singleplayer. See at 2:36

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

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...
