If you remember Evolve, you’d know it wasn’t a particularly successful game and not because it was bad, but because it was expensive. At an ambitious launch price partnered with expensive downloadable content, the game fell upon hard times with the player count dropping to a pathetic 157 players daily.Two days after it was announced that Evolve would become free-to-play the player count has skyrocketed beyond the 35,000 mark and is continuing to rise.
Evolve’s experience has the potential to get better considering the game is now back in beta as the team puzzle out how to make the game work as free to play . For the most part, Evolve isn’t actually a bad game as such – it is fun, especially in private games with friends.
If you’re interested in targeting monsters, or being the target then Evolve Stage 2 is currently available on Steam for free, and will be coming to consoles at a later date.
