Remember Evolve? No? Well Turtle Rock Studios has announced that its 4-v-1 multiplayer game has gone free-to-play on PC. This announcement comes on the heels of the game and all of its DLC being removed from Steam yesterday. Evolve is now back on the popular online service with all of its in-game items now unlockable for free to anyone that plays it.
This move isn’t entirely surprising given the history of the game. Though it initially launched with positive reviews and fan feedback, Evolve‘s lack of content quickly made it fade into obscurity. At its lowest point, the game had less than 500 active users. For a title with no single player component, that is nothing short of a disaster. Evolve‘s pricey DLC didn’t help matters either.

Beyond going free-to-play, Evolve will have a number of dramatic updates that will change the game significantly. Expect new modes, characters, maps, and many other unlockables. Most of this new content is available now as part of the relaunch, and Turtle Rock promises to deliver more updates in the coming months. Those who bought the game and its DLC will be able to carry over all of their content. There will also be a number of other rewards, gifts, and special access to those who have “Founder Status.”
Right now, all of these changes are being rolled out in beta form on the PC. The console versions of the game will go free-to-play once the beta is over. For a full list of everything coming to Evolve, make sure to visit the game’s official site for a full rundown. Whatever the future holds for Evolve, at least we can always appreciate its cool logo. Four small blocks vs. one big block. Four human hunters vs. one big monster. Doesn’t that blow your mind? Graphic design!
