At E3 2017 a lot of games went unnoticed because they were up against the likes of Skyrim Switch and Anthem. And one of these games is a spiritual successor to Evolve!!
The game is named Hunt : showdown.
The story is set in modern day Earth (unlike Evolve’s futuristic approach). But instead of monsters, the creatures of Hell are spilling onto Earth.
Its unknown atm if the monster is also player controlled but we can hope. It remains simmiliar to Evolve in that a team of hunters must find and kill a monater.
But another twist in the game is that there arent just one team hunting the monster. There can be up to five teams of players that will hunt down the monster.
So you can either work together and split the bounty or kill off the competition.
And your mistakes are gonna cost you. because dying in this game , unlike Evolve ,is perma death. So if a hunter dies, he wont respawn. Add limited ammo and gear to that and you have a lot more risk as a hunter.
And as for the monster , you have the armies of Hell at your disposal. The hunters must track you down yes, but they have to fight throught hordes of demons to reach you.
What do you think? Will this game suffer the same fate as Evolve , or will it show 2K that this genre can be successfull.
