    Does this game have a proper single player mode?

    I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in playing a game online and after the disappointing Destiny, which looks, sounds and plays nice enough but has depressingly repetitive mission design and is completely lacking in anything resembling an interesting story or characters, I am apprehensive about buying a game that claims to cater for both solo and multiplayers.

    It's like Left 4 Dead I believe so more like a bot match.

    Didn't have any bots in the last beta test though, unless they're added that by now.

    Made it difficult to learn the game, gave up after a few matches, was boring.

    oh yeah, here's a key for anyone wanting it

    it'd be common courtesy to say that you've taken it though

    From everything I've read, this game is dependent completely on online play.
    As scatman839 said, unless it's changed... as far as I understand it... the game can only be played online.

    I loved Left 4 Dead, Turtlerock nailed that. But... nothing about Evolve looks fun to me.

    I'm looking forward to trying this game, but I can't see it being something I would play that often. I've downloaded it and ready to go however, roll on tomorrow!

    Absolutely not for me then. I find those kind of games tedious in the extreme...unfortunately. :(

    The beta popped up and downloaded for me yesterday, will have to get a spare moment to try it out. I'm not really excited though but maybe that's just because I haven't been following evolve.

    Yeah I do agree somewhat. It's great fun for an hour but it does get boring fast.

    I tried the beta today and it runs like crap. Yeah, I know my pc isn't top of the line, but it's at/above the minimum requirements and I get below 20fps with everything on low, no AA @1080p. Is this normal, or is something wrong.

    Also, I got a spare key, if anyone's interested drop a PM :p

    Hm alpha ran very good here, 60fps+ @ 1080p max settings, I think that 650Ti is just to slow now.. Idk what else would be the cause then

    I saw I got another key too now, might give it one more try.



    Btw did they add new levels or still only 1 and only 1 game mode?

    Just played the beta....

    Uninstalled after 30 minutes of play, this has to be one of the most boring games I have ever played. The hype around this game is simply not justified at all. The only good thing about this game is that it is VERY well optimized. I was getting 240fps more less consistently with all settings maxed out even forced 4XMSAA 16XAF through control panel and it did seem to work on trees and branches. I had a few dips to 180fps when looking into a large open area but other than that it was solid.

    Just a shame this is a boring game gameplay wise.

    Also, have you seen how much they are going to charge for new monsters!??? ABSURD!

    I was in the Alpha, and the opinion I formed then still stands : It's not a full game, and it shouldn't be priced as such. If it were a $40 purchase with all of this DLC bull**** included in the purchase price, I'd be fine with it. However, there's just not enough game to justify a $60 price tag, much less the higher prices you have to shell out for the "bonus" content.

    No there are a few new maps and I the campaign mode takes you through new modes.

    Tried out the beta this morning.

    I'm not a fan.
    While I'm normally not one for online games, I loved Left 4 Dead. But, I hated L4D2... so, I figured there was something there that Turtlerock had that Valve didn't.

    But, with Evolve, it's not there.
    Visually it's a nice looking game. They make good use of the CryEngine... and it runs great.
    But, playing as a "hunter" I found the combat to be rather dull. The weapons lack.... weight... or feedback.
    And as the monster I just wasn't feeling it. And so far it seems if you can evolve to a level 3 monster, you are almost unstoppable. Which makes the game pretty dull.

    Personally the game just seems really tedious. The same thing over and over again... I find it hard to see how this is worth 60 bucks.

    Well, downloaded it, and wanted to play with a friend already in since alpha yesterday (he sent me the key). First, I'm surprised by the lack to set up advanced graphics options (or I simply haven't found them). Second, we tried to get a match running with my friend and me in a group, but we only got two others to join, not even proper 5 people playing, and it took forever. We then tried to get five people together with another search, which didn't bring up a full game for ten minutes.

    I quit after that and saw half an hour of waiting for not being able to play my first round with my friend. Not too great of an impression so far.
