Hey folks, bought evolve today

Just wanted to say hello.I couldn’t find any introductions category but anyway.I’am playing games for over 20 years now mostly rpgs, adventures and the occasional shooter.I was excited about this game for some time now but the dlc amount and pricing put me of for a long time.Now that the game is only 30 euro i decided to buy, give it a chance.While i haven’t played it yet (the 12 gb patch is still downloading) i would like to have some beginners advice.Any useful infos maybe.

Thanks for your ansers, looking forward to play the game.I’am on xbox one btw.

Oh and excuse my english it’s not the best.

@McGurk I hope you like the game! I can’t get enough of it.

It may seem difficult at first but that is because it is a different kind of multiplayer game. Each loss is a chance to learn. Have fun!

Okay, well tell me when it’s done. We can play customs or pubs, your choice. I can give you pointers while we play.

You’re might be right with that.I watched a few videos on every class and most of the characters.From the gameplay i’ve seen, trapper and suppoort look good to me.Medic and assaulft are probably the most straight forward classes.Heal and shoot.But i have to wait untill the patch is finished to try everything myself.

If you are looking for advice, there are many threads. Here are the ones for the characters you’ll have unlocked at the start.





If playing hunter, I would check out this thread too:

Other than that, welcome to Evolve :smile:!

A) Stay away from the Mammothbirds. Like, seriously. Y’know, those two-legged bastrds with weird tentacles instead of a mouth? Just don’t get close to them. Ever.

B) Actually, thinking about this, you should stay away from most things on Shear, really. The only exception would be your teammates.

If I were to have any actual advice other than bring lube, I would say just play solo for a long time. A new player in this game wont stand a chance in pubs, and you would be losing it for your team. Just practice first.

Thanks, also i think it is a nice change in mechanics and gameplay from the regular shooter garbage.I played enough Dooms, Bloods, Battlefields etc.Not saying they are bad but i’ve seen, played all before.But this game has some fresh ideas.I like that!
