Meteor Goliath This Weekend!

#1

Yes! He’s coming folks! Let’s get ready to rumble! Lol. Ok, I’m good now.

Meteor Goliath , Evolve’s first adaptation, is a variant of the iconic Goliath Monster, adding a new look, and stunning blue-fire effects, as well as new audio, and gameplay. Meteor Goliath uses his burning “area off effect”, and increased range to spread residual fire damage across the entire Hunter team, while showcasing a fiery twist on Goliath’s abilities.

Abilities:

All Abilities have been re-balanced around residual fire damage, but the differences don’t stop there:

Rock Throw :
Rock Throw is still Meteor Goliath’s heaviest damage dealer but now his boulders are covered in blue fire and travel faster!
Leap Smash:
Leap Smash is still the foundation of all Meteor Goliath builds, this Leap Smash hits targets much farther away. Watch how surprised the Hunters are when they think they’re out of range and then suddenly get hit by a blue comet! Fair warning: The cooldown time has been increased to compensate for the ability to travel farther.
Fire Breath:
Fire Breath is blue, and comes with surprising range. Use it to snipe Hunters from farther away, but don’t be greedy. Share the fire with everyone!
Charge:
Charge has the same speed as before, but lasts much longer now. Did we need to mention it looks like a Meteor? The cooldown time is increased.
Sneak:
Your flames automatically extinguish when you enter stealth mode.
Leap :
Meteor Goliath still leaps to get around, but these leaps are faster.

There’s your proof, unlike some people here I don’t post something without knowing about it first. I actually received a tweet.

So is og Goliath dead? No one will play him anymore now that the new one deals more damage(?)

#10

Oooh faster Goliath. Me likey.

#11

Will there be any reason to play vanilla goliath when meteor goliath is out? Seems the new one is better in literally every way with the sole exception being original goliath leap smash has a shorter cooldown. Now Im all for new content but shouldnt they make a better effort to make all playable monsters and hunters balanced?

He’s not superior. His abilities deal less damage front end but compensate for it with DoT.

He does sound considerably stronger than regular goliath in terms of consistency
