2K announces Evolve pre-order bonuses

Publisher 2K Games details the Monster Expansion Pack

2K Games has announced Evolve pre-order bonuses ahead of the game's autumn 2014 launch window.

Those who pre-order the Xbox One, PS4 and PC title from participating retailers will receive the Monster Expansion Pack. It will include the Savage Goliath skin at launch and a new monster character when it's released post-launch.

Originally set to be released by now defunct publisher THQ, Evolve is the latest game from Left 4 Dead creator Turtle Rock Studios. First announced in 2011, it was re-revealed by new publisher 2K in early January 2014.

According to the game's official blurb, "Evolve expertly blends cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences as a team of four hunters face off against a single, player-controlled monster. Set on an alien planet in the distant future, gamers hunt their prey in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches.

"Players experience Evolve as a first-person shooter when playing cooperatively as the four hunters, while they control the monster in the third-person perspective, providing a gameplay experience unique to Evolve."

Turtle Rock Studios design director co-founder Chris Ashton says: "Our philosophy is to build incredibly fun game experiences that we can't find anywhere else. Evolve's co-op vs. lone wolf formula has created some of the most intense multiplayer matches we've ever experienced."

A wealth of new Evolve information was revealed in early January, covering features such as class types and back story.
