Hi lovely people
I came back after I was sort of forced to play “The Division”
Thank god there is Evolve
Here are some things I noticed, having played the game on its release back in March 2015
It seems that the graphics got some polish
Hyde’s flame thrower looks better
Other Hunter’s flashlight beams can be seen
Some foliage’s reaction to contact with characters is more detailed
Overall some lighting and particle effects from the PC version were added
Also sound issues were finally fixed!
Maggie’s smg sound now works and Markov’s too and I think even Hank’s plasma cutter now sounds properly
To improve performance some things have been discarded though:
The invisibility shader effect from support class and Laz is gone and has been replaced by a simple outline of the character model, which I assume is less taxing on hardware.
Also, killed wildlife now “plops” into a state in which its no longer a physics entity, I guess that’s also to free up some cpu power.
I must say that Evolve has never looked this good and I think it is the best looking title on xbox one. Both technically and artistically.
I was also pleasantly surprised to see some free characters and monsters, like rogue val and meteor goliath and elder kraken.
From the T5 hunter lineup, I think I like Kala best… what does she do? It seems like she can ignore the monster’s shield altogether?
So excited about this game again.
