Was System Link ever officially answered?


#1

I have searched the term ‘system link’ and saw it asked a couple of times but was never able to find an official answer. I know the reddit AMA is tomorrow but unfortunately I won’t be able to participate around that time, so if it hasn’t been answered could someone shoot it out there?

While the possibility of Esports would strongly indicate a LAN environment, it would still be reassuring to hear an official answer.

Thanks everyone


Already hacks in this game? add lan...im not the only one

System link?


#3

Yeah, playing with friends, locally, without the aid of internet or splitscreen.


#4

Ohh doubt it because it works trough steam. :slight_smile: but someone has to confirm that tho.


#5

Sorry, I was more referring to the consoles (xbox/playstation) version of Evolve.


#6

Competitive will be PC in the beginning, thats what we ( the community ) are planning atleast :slight_smile:


#7

If it won’t be added then I am sure if there will be enough of people demanding it they will add it because as @SlabOMeat said the competetive side of the game will be decided by the players.


#8

Ok so… I want to officially get the ball rolling for System Link on Consoles then :wink:


#9

I am not planning competitive on pc? xD


#10

I am pretty sure that is a feature that will be added on launch. Just based off of personal opinion not factual.


#11

The devs already said it cant be done.
Edit: Scratch what i said before i have no idea i was thinking of split-screen which is impossible


#12

My big fear is with the timeline winding down, System Link gets cut in order to spend time and resources in more pressing places. I’m also not sure if it’s a feature that can be added post-launch… but I would love to hear from someone who knows more than I do on the matter, preferably a Dev.

I guess it’s a good sign that Evolve got bumped back to February from it’s original October release date though.

They have an AMA Reddit thread going up in a couple of hours, you should ask there

Will do, I originally wasn’t going to be available in that time frame but was able to move some things around. Thanks for the link


#15

They didn’t reply to my question. I did learn a lot of awesome info about the game going over the answers, but ultimately didn’t see anything on system link from anyone else either.

I have a cabin trip coming up (remote and internet-less) and finding out if Evolve will support system link is paramount. I actually delayed the trip to right after Evolve’s release with the intention of nonstop hunting each other for a week straight.

It won’t be possible for us if Evolve is without System Link.

Please, let me know


#16

If it takes me constantly bumping my own thread to get it noticed and answered/addressed, I will do it shamelessly.


#17

They’ve been busy and it’s the weekend :slight_smile: it was the christmas party in london aswell.


#18

Yeah, I didn’t expect an immediate answer the moment I posted this question, but I’ve been very impressed with the amount of interaction they have had with their community and figure if I remain persistent, I may finally get my answer.


#19

I actually was one of the first to ask this back awhile ago, glad to see a bump on it.


#20

Yup, you’re original post, back in April or May I believe, was the first topic that popped up when I searched for System Link but unfortunately it was never answered.

I created a new topic, solely about System Link, hoping we were close enough to the release date for an official answer.
