Get your first glimpse into Evolve, the new co-op/competitive shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead

We have a few people on the site who love Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 to so the reveal of gameplay footage from their new game Evolve was been met with squealing noises around the virtual offices of Gaming Nexus.  

The folks at Turtle Rock are clearing building on their existing formula as Evolve game features four hunters who are trying to track and kill a player controlled creature.  There are a few twists to the formula as there are four different classes that players can use in the game and the player controlled creature is encouraged to spend the early part of each round foraging for food and avoiding contact so that it can evolve into a much more powerful enemy.  Here's a short video that walks you through everything that the company has revealed about the game so far.

The hunters and creature do have to deal with other creatures while hunting each other which should spice things up a bit.  I'll be interested to see if any of the "Director" AI technology from the Left 4 Dead games makes it over as that was the real heart of the game.  Either way, Evolve is definitely a game I'm going to be keeping my eyes on.
