Evolve’s official trailer shows very little actual gameplay

Turtle Rock Studios and 2K have released a two-minute trailer of their forthcoming 4v1 shooter Evolve, set to the strains of a cover of Danzig’s Mother.

As you might expect, this trailer shows a squad of four – including someone with the most impressive beard this side of War of the Vikings – traipsing carefully through a forest. And then a giant, pissed-off, fire-breathing monstrosity greets them with one of the following: hugs! Kittens! Attempted murder! (It’s attempted murder.)

From what I can tell this trailer doesn’t actually contain any gameplay footage, but it does appear to be using the in-game models so you can at least see how it looks. As far as not-actual-gameplay trailers go this is really rather good, and it makes me want to have a crack at the game myself. I rather like the idea of either playing a terrified squad member in first-person or a hostile behemoth in third-person, if I’m honest.

Evolve is due out this autumn. You can pre-order it for inevitable bonuses right now.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
