Turtle Rock working on 4v1 multiplayer title, Evolve

That’s the name alright.

You might remember hearing about Turtle Rock’s Evolve title during THQ’s bankruptcy proceedings. The project was nabbed by 2K for almost $11 million USD, which suggested they had quite some faith in both game and developer alike. Turtle Rock, of course, were behind a large portion of Left 4 Dead, so that would make sense.

Here’s what happens in Evolve, according to details to be published in this trade magazine. It’s a four versus one affair, with the four being your bog-standard humans (alien hunters, in this case) against another player-controlled alien. The alien is overpowered in comparison to the humans, and grows larger and more dangerous over the course of a match. Everyone will have their own sets of items and abilities to aid in the struggle.

It reminds me quite a bit of the Hidden mod for the Source Engine, where one player controls a rapid, semi-invisible psychopath against various other solider-type players. That mod was great, so if Evolve can capture a similar spirit then it’ll be worth trying out.
