The team at 2K And Turtle Rock Studios are ready to start a month-long event for Evolve Stage 2. The game has been on fire since moving to a free-to-play model, and these recent updates are undoubtedly the result. Today’s update marks the first of five weeks of updates that will include three more character adaptations, three new map variants, a new co-op mode, and a bevy of other oft-requested features.
First up, we get to check out a new character named Quantum Caira, a healer variant. Here’s a little bit about her:
Quantum Caira keeps the team alive through sustained healing and careful positioning. Her Regeneration Fields create healing zones while her Neutron Barrier blocks damage for the whole team, as long as she’s in the right place. Unlike other medics she has no healing burst so a well-positioned Regeneration Field combined with a well-timed Proton Field are the keys to success with Quantum Caira.
Quantum Caira’s abilities include:
- Proton Field- Deploys a zone that damages enemies over time. Multiple fields stack.
- Regeneration Field – Deploys a Generyst™ zone that heals each nearby Hunter over time. Multiple Regeneration Fields stack.
- Neutron Barrier- Applies a short damage-resistance buff to all nearby Hunters.
- Generyst II™ Field: Heals hunters and damages monsters in the area for the duration of the effect.
The best feature announced is a new ‘try before you buy’ option for all hunters, monsters, skins, and perks, allowing players to test them out in the game’s Training Mode before making any commitments. Check out the official blog for the rest of the update details, and enjoy Quantum Caira’s character profile above!
