‘Evolve’ Single Player Campaign Details Revealed

Published

 on

Ever since the reveal of Evolve, Turtle Rock Studios newest game, details have primarily been about the multiplayer component. GamingBolt was able to get in touch with co-founder and design director Chris Ashton, where he revealed that the campaign portion of the game will be similar to Left 4 Dead’s campaign structure.

You can play single-player and we have AI that fill empty slots, so you can play single-player as the monster, you can play single-player as the hunter with AI teammates against an AI monster.

We haven’t really talked too much about what single-player elements will be in the game. Other than that, story wise we are doing a lot of similar things like Left 4 Dead. When you played Left 4 Dead the characters would talk and you’d hear about the world and you’d see writing and stuff like that. You’d learn about the world a little bit as you played it. So we are doing kind of a similar take on Evolve. A lot of what you gonna learn about the fiction and stuff comes from the characters.

Judging from that quote, I wouldn’t expect a heavy focus on the game’s campaign, but as Turtle Rock continues to keep the single player mode of the game shrouded in secrecy, we’ll just have to wait and see and hopefully, end up being surprised at some point.

Evolve will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, October 21st, 2014.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
