Evolve Goes Stage 2, And Starting Today is Free To Play On PC

Evolve1

Evolve, is the 4 vs 1 game from Turtle Rock Studios that was released last year to much excitement. Unfortunately that excitement quickly turned sour due to the terrible DLC and micro-transaction strategy. Well we are happy to announce that they have thought long and hard about this and decided to essentially reboot the whole game in what they are calling Evolve Stage 2.

evolve5

What that means for you and I friends, is that starting today, you can go download Evolve Stage 2 for free on Steam for PC. They have announced a plan for the people that have already bought the game in what they are calling the “founders” so that they won’t be left out in the cold, going as far as to say everything that they have unlocked will be available to them in the “new” game as well as some ongoing bonuses as well. Founders can expect such goodies as:

  • 3,000 Silver Keys, all past and future Adaptations for previously owned Hunters and Monsters, dozens of Weapon Skins, and four unique, animated Founder badges.
  • If you owned any Hunters, Monsters, or Skins previously, those will be carried over to Evolve Stage 2.

In future, there will be new, exclusive badges, skins and assorted cosmetics for Founders.

Evolve3

Evolve’s very large cast of characters and cosmetics will all be unlockable in Stage 2 by using an in-game currency called Silver Keys, earned by playing. There’s no mention yet of whether you’ll be able to pay cash, although I am sure that they will be mentioning something about it soon.

Evolve4

They also announced that not only are they going free to play, they are also overhauling the entire game, they gave us a small taste of the changes that we can expect to see when logging in now

Major changes include a renewed focus on the signature 4v1 Hunt mode, with rejigged classes to lighten the load for inexperienced Medics and Trappers:

  • The MOBILE ARENA is now a shared ability that always centers on the Monster, and all four hunter classes have been redesigned to be more easily accessible and have better team synergy even when you’re not playing with friends.
  • TRAPPER – With the mobile arena a shared ability, all Trapper class hunters now come equipped with a PLANET SCANNER ability that tells the hunters generally which direction the monster is located within the map. Trappers also get a speed boost when activating the ability to help them close the distance and Dome the Monster.
  • MEDIC – All Hunter classes now have passive health regeneration that automatically heals players when they aren’t taking damage.
  • SUPPORT – All Support class hunters now have a SHIELD BURST ability that automatically charges the shields of teammates that are close enough to the Support.
  • All Assault class hunters now have a DEFENSE MATRIX ability that replaces the personal shield’s invulnerability and instead provides damage reduction to the Assault character.
  • MONSTER – All Monsters now have more health and start with enough skill points to activate all four abilities at the start of a match. Alongside new found power and speed, the Monsters are back to terrorize Shear.
  • VISUAL FX and UI have been redesigned to provide a cleaner, more easily understandable experience for players of all skill levels.
  • MAPS have been redesigned specifically for HUNT using countless hours of gameplay data and player feedback since launch, resulting in maps that create consistently fair fights for Hunters and Monsters.

If you want to see what this game is about, or maybe what has changed, you can download the new Stage 2 version starting right now on Steam.

Previously Pokemon Go was in closed beta, but that my friends is finally over. Pokemon Go has finally been released on the Google Play Store for Android users, and has been released on the App store in Australia and New Zealand (at least for right now) on iOS, no word yet on when they are releasing in other territories yet.

Pokemon Go is an AR (Augmented Reality) game that allows players to see and trap Pokemon by using the app and camera when they are out and walking around so that they can battle them later. If this sounds like something up your alley, then take a look at the video below and go download the app!

Resident-Evil-7-Biohazard-1

Capcom has announced that the recently released Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour, has now become the most downloaded single-player PS4 demo in the first week of its release for North America, and has now been downloaded over 2 million times globally. This with it only been released to Playstation Plus members makes us think that people really are excited for a new RE game.

The Demo is a prologue, and Capcom has stated that the demo will not be in the full game, but is a taste of the world and the feel they are going for in the full game.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is slated for a January 24, 2017 release and will be coming out on the PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and will be playable from start to finish in PS: VR.
