Yesterday, 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios announced that Evolve is available for pre-order.
Today, the developer detailed Evolve’s Assault Class Hunter, Markov.
Turtle Rock Studios Phil Robb explained that Evolve’s human hunters as “planet tamers,” and added,
“They show up on these planets, and they sort of help colonists make these places livable.”
Another studio head, Chris Ashton said,
“That’s the reason they have harpoon guns, tranq darts – they’re here to handle the local wildlife. That’s sort of their shtick. So they get here, and they’re faced with this much bigger problem. It’s a little more than they were expecting. These monsters, they’re not native to Shear, either, so the hunters suddenly find themselves, ‘Wow, we’re kind of in over our heads here.’ It becomes this sort of battle for survival.”
Markov features the following:
- A great deal of health
- A personal shield device
- Wields a lightning rifle that spews bolts at long range
- Carries an assault rifle,
- Arc mines can be used to set up traps
