I’m really digging the characters so far in Evolve. Even though they don’t have much backstory to them (at least in the game itself) their lines are well written and give just enough to make us care. And I really enjoy the female characters too, because they’re more than just good looks, they actually have some depth and power to them. Especially Sunny. (And this is coming from a guy. )
But the final frontier in Evolve, at least for Hunters, would be a female Assault type character. That would be a real creative triumph for TRS if they can successfully pull it off. I do have a couple of ideas as to how it can be done:
- A genetically altered female super soldier. I know Assault types usually require big guns and even bigger men to carry them, but for a female Assault character, in Evolve’s setting I can see a woman splicing a gene or two to make her able to compete with the best space marines. Heck, if Evolve has a character like Slim around, who’s to say a woman super-soldier isn’t an option?
- A stealthy assassin type. Who’s to say a character has to be huge and hulking to be an effective Assault type? The right kind of weapons can do all sorts of damage, they don’t necessarily have to be large in Evolve’s setting. So maybe a small, nimble character with weapons that can function like assassin’s tools against monsters could make a good Assault character.
What do you folks think?
