2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios just put out a video showing off the offline solo mode of ‘Evolve’.
In the 22-minute video are two full matches of ‘Evolve’ being played in an offline version of the game’s Defense mode. More or less, offline solo mode looks to be more of a practice arena for players who are still a bit too timid to enter the ranks of online play. However, despite playing offline, all achievements earned while playing in this mode will carry over into the online mode of ‘Evolve.’
Another interesting detail in offline solo mode is that players can actually swap between the other hunter characters in play whenever they want, while fighting against the AI-controlled monster. Otherwise, all other hunter characters are controlled by AI when the player is not commandeering them. As far as if they can be potentially be told what to do while in battle is still unclear.
To compliment the offline solo mode showcase, Turtle Rock Studios has also released a tongue-in-cheek graphic that compares the offline and online modes, which you can take a look at below.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, ‘Evolve’ is an upcoming 4v1 cooperative/competitive multiplayer first person shooter that has four players controlling hunters who are equipped with a variety of different weapons and abilities, while another player takes control of a monstrous alien creature who can evolve to become stronger the more they fight.
‘Evolve’ is being developed by Turtle Rock Studios, who are mostly known for their co-development duties on Valve’s ‘Left 4 Dead’ series. The title will be their first full-on AAA developed title made purely by themselves, and also their first big project as an independent studio since having left Valve in 2009.
‘Evolve’ will making its way on to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on February 10.
