Released last month with a stable of deadly Monsters and determined Hunters, Turtle Rock Studios and 2K Games are making Evolve even bigger with the first set of post-launch downloadable content coming to its online-centric multiplayer FPS at the end of the month.
Publisher 2K Games announced that the first wave of DLC following Evolve‘s launch will release on March 31st, 2015, with the new content bringing a plethora of updates and features. Primarily, the new content will include four brand new Hunters, a new Monster, and also bring in two new maps and the Observer Mode to allow easier in-game streaming and commentary during online matches.
The four new Hunters will include Torvald (Assault), Crow (Trapper), Slim (Medic), and Sunny (Support), with each new Hunter including several features and unique pieces of equipment within the Hunter team. On the Monster side, The Behemoth will enter the ring and stomp over its competition, joining in as the largest of the Monsters yet and dominating the field with sheer power and strength.
The new Hunter characters are included within the Season Pass for Evolve, while purchasing the characters individually will cost $7.49 each, or for $24.99 as part of the Season Pass. The Behemoth was available as a pre-order bonus for the game, and will run $14.99 when purchased separately.
The two new maps included in the game, Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry, will be added to Evolve as part of a free update on all platforms – Xbox One will receive the maps first on March 31st, while PS4 and PC will receive the maps on April 30th.
