This months Game Informer cover
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/01/07/february-2014-evolve-768796.aspx

From the Left 4 Dead folks, a 4 v 1 multiplayer game where 4 hunters take on one player controlled super monster.  Seems a bit like Predator or Ogre done as a FPS.

For some reason I imagine Hark will greatly enjoy playing the monster.

It's not just 4 vs 1 Monster.

There's a whole bunch of other enemies that populate the maps and target both human Hunters and Monster, including things that make the Monster a snack.

Both hunters and monster have their own objectives to fulfill.

The monster is interesting in that he has to hunt and kill the local enemies to grow stronger and heal, while the hunters come after him. But those same hunters have to deal with the local fauna.

The monster also has interesting mechanics, like if it runs, it will leave tracks and as well as making noise. Hunting and killing fauna will cause carrion birds to circle around, giving away your position.

So those 5 player matches will be more interesting than just hunting each other. There's going to be some interesting interplay between all these systems.

Heck, I think I'm really going to enjoy this game since I really enjoyed the crazy asymmetrical multiplayer games like Giants: Citizen Kabuto, which will have some similarities.

[...] Giants: Citizen Kabuto, which will have some similarities.

This is the first thing I thought of. Loved playing the Kabuto in LAN games, eating sheep and getting bigger, then swatting helicopters down and nabbing pilots. I also enjoyed running around with some of the players impaled on my spikes - they don't die right away, so they got kind of a twitch gaming experience (IIRC).

Thing is, there were two different races for the non-monster, and that was part of the fun of that game.

I think they'll be positioning the local deadly fauna as something like that third team. In Giants, it was just other players and you couldn't rely on those players to target both the other sides equally. Leave that to the AI and an AI director and things will be more interesting.

Although in this game, it's looking like the Monster won't get quite as big as Kabuto, and its sounding like the maps will be as large as Giants, but probably even more covered in flora. Don't quote me on that, but it does sound like maps have some open elements. With the monster smaller, and more able to hide, it could lead to more awesome cat and mouse, since they're putting in a lot of systems that seem to want the hunters to track down the monster as it does its thing.

The monster only wins if he kills all 4 hunters at the same time, otherwise I think it was every 2 minutes, from the time of last death, that they respawn in by helicopter drop.

Same footage but with text overlays instead of an audio discussion, so you can better hear the game.

The game wasn't on my radar until watching the latest gameplay trailer which shows a match: http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/ks2g3z/evolve-sixth-channel---gameplay-trailer

Being the goliath seems like it'll be a lot of fun. Looks like they did a fantastic job at balancing the game while making it very tense for both groups.
