The hunters' gameplay is similar to typical first-person shooter, while the monsters are controlled from a third-person perspective. The hunters goal is to eliminate the monster, while the monster's main objective is to consume willdife so as to evolve to make themselves stronger. The game can be played solo or with multiple players.

How To Play Evolve

Evolve is an action video game with focus on both co-operative gameplay and competitive multiplayer. The game adapts a '4v1' asymmetrical structure and pits five players into two different teams. Four players take control of the hunters, while the remaining one assumes control of the monster.[2] The hunters' major objective is to track and hunt down the monster in a limited amount of time, while the monster's goal is to evolve, and to make themselves more powerful.[1] In the beginning of a match, the hunters parachute from a military plane to descend into the point where the monster started. A 30-second headstart is given to the monster so that they can have enough time to escape from the hunters. Each map features an open environment, which are free for players to explore.[3] In order to help the hunters to navigate the environments quickly, they are equipped with jetpacks. It allows them to jump over obstacles and cliffs quickly, as well as dodging attacks performed by the monster, even though it takes energy away from the hunters.[4] The team can track the monster, as well as placing waypoints in a map.[5] The color of these waypoints are different based on what players have marked. The waypoint turns yellow, orange or red if they marked the environment, wildlife or the monster respectively.[6] Meanwhile, the monster needs to grow stronger in order to combat its enemies. They can do so by hunting and killing other local wildlife in order to gain experience points. When it gains enough experience, it can evolve.[7] Through evolution, the monster's health bar would be extended and refilled, and more abilities would be given to the monster, which would make it more efficient in killing the hunters.[8] However, the monster is vulnerable during the process of evolution, and if it is caught by the hunters, the process would get disrupted.[7] The monster can also enter a stealth mode, which allows them to effectively avoid wildlife as well as the hunters.[9]

Heroes of Evolve

The game is set in a distant future, in which humans have successfully discovered ways to survive outside the planet Earth and begin colonizing other planets of the galaxy. After their arrival on the planet Shear, they begin industrializing it, building large factories all over. As time progresses, humans begins to meet resistance, not from the local wildlife but from alien life-forms, which have the power to destroy everything humans have built. A group of hunters are sent to destroy these monsters, protect their communities and stop the havoc caused by the monsters.[1]
