A new monster is joining Evolve today, the Gorgon. The new monster is available as part of Hunting Season 2 or separately, and if spiders freak you out, then maybe she’s one to avoid.
Gorgon is a sly and hideous killer that enjoys watching her prey struggle. Gorgon makes up for her small health and armor pool with ranged attacks that deal damage over time and can be especially effective when stacked onto a single opponent. Gorgon uses her Web Sling traversal method to quickly pull herself across the map and allows her to stick to walls to hide and ambush unsuspecting Hunters. Gorgon’s abilities include:
- Acid Spit – coats a target in burning acid and can be sprayed onto the environment, making areas too dangerous for Hunters to cross;
- Web Snare – slows a target’s movement and deals damage, making Hunters easy prey for additional attacks;
- Spider Trap – can be deployed at range, snatching Hunters and slowly digesting them while carrying them away;
- Mimic – is a glowing husk that Gorgon sheds and controls remotely that traverses, melee attacks and detonates manually like a remote controlled bomb.
In related news two new character adaptations will be joining the game “soon”. Blitz Markov who trades damage reliability for increased damage potential that grows over time. Rogue Val keeps multiple teammates healed at short range and increases her damage output, at the cost of decreased healing range and item utility.
