On September 10th, Confident Gamers attended the 2014 Gamestop EXPO held in Anaheim California. We got a chance to get some hands on time with many new upcoming games. All of which were totally awesome!One of those awesome games was 2k and Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve.If you have never heard of Evolve, first of all I’m sorry, but here you can read a quick overview about this title:

From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve, the next generation of multiplayer shooters where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches. Play as the Monster to use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to kill your human enemies, or choose one of four Hunter classes (Assault, Trapper, Medic and Support) and team up to take down the beast on the planet Shear, where flora and fauna act as an adversary to man and monster alike. Level up to unlock new Hunter or Monster characters as well as upgrades, skins, and perks. Earn your infamy on the leaderboards and become the apex predator.

So, I got to play as the Monster, side note, in our video I address the monster as a “beast” but was quickly corrected. In the game Evolve, the creature is not a “beast”, it is a “monster”. Noted! So I played as the Kraken, a monster that can fly, shoot lightening, leave electrice type mines, scale up rocks, basically a total BAMF!My role as the monster was to hunt other creatures, feed to get bigger, evolve, and survive while taking out the 4 hunters. Yes, it is a 4 v 1 setup. And it get’s intense.Check out our video of the Evolve Hands on Gameplay and be sure to enter for a chance to get a code that will allow you to sign up for the upcoming Evolve Join the Hunt Big Alpha.We’ll be choosing a winner at random on Tuesday, September 16th.Good luck!

Disclosure: we were provided with two beta codes after getting the hands on experience at the GameStop Expo. One is ours and one is yours if you win.
