Going to post this here, because in the inevitable event that Evolve’s master servers go down, people may get worried.
A quote from reddit.
"This is why as someone who remembers the days when a master server was a simple IP/DNS fix and companies released master server clients when they folded up shop, I fucking hate modern online gaming.
You can still connect to old UT or Q3A servers via public master lists.
Modern games (like Evolve) as so wrapped up in DRM and copy protection that when they die, they are forever dead. Nobody will ever be able to host it again. There’s no LAN mode. Nothing.
That’s the real tragedy here. Even if Evolve wasn’t successful enough to remain online, when 2k pulls the servers, it is gone forever. Nobody will ever be able to play it again. The game vanishes from history. You can’t pull a copy off the shelf in 10 years. It’s like the game never existed."
In other words - no customs. Probably no Legacy. No anything. I know a lot of you will probably be angry at me for posting this, and I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry that this is what will happen to a game we all loved and cared about. But it’s best to realize this now instead of getting such a nasty surprise.
