Good news for those who aren’t huge fans of the online game-play, 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios revealed that Evolve, will feature an offline mode.
According to Turtle Rock Studios’ Chris Ashton,
Playing Evolve competitively, against other players online, can be a lot of pressure. We wanted to make sure anyone could play the whole game, including Evacuation, alone with or against the AI and it’s still fun. Rather than splitting our focus and crafting a different version of Evolve for solo, we focused on making sure that the solo game would stay true to what Evolve was always meant to be. In our minds, even if a bot is driving the Monster or the Hunters, it’s still the same great game.
Offline mode allows for players to choose certain bot opponents and having full control over what missions are played in Evacuation.
There’s also the ability to bot swap; playing on an Xbox One, the D-pad a players quick-select. Tap in one of four directions and players suddenly control a different Hunter.
Players also don’t have to wait to be saved from MegaMouth or waiting on the drop ship.
Ashton continues to explain,
Evacuation is probably where you want to spend most of your time unless you want to practice specific modes…and never forget that when you are a Hunter, you can take over any of your bot teammates at any time.
To further explain this mode, Turtle Rock Studios also released a video which is available below.
Evolve will release for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One February 10th.
