Weather and environment?


#1

We’ve seen in a few clips that it rains in a match. Now is this weather dynamic and ever changing? Or does each match have a ‘set’ weather pattern?


#2

I think i read it somwhere that the weather is dynamic but not 100% sure.
@SlabOMeat can confirmed this :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

Also @SlabOMeat, if you reply, could you explain the effects the weather has on a map? Such as washing footprints away, making things harder to see etc. I remember hearing somewhere that the rain might happen deliberately to help one side escape. Is that accurate?

Thank you Plaff


#5

The weather is dynamic, but it doesn’t pick sides, it’s completely random. It also works much like you’d expect in its impact on the map and gameplay. I definitely have a much harder time detecting movement across distances with a bunch of rain in the way.


#6

Makes sense. If it’s raining, it really takes away from your peripheral vision’s ability to detect movement seeing how there is movement everywhere along with it straight up reducing visibility


#7

Well since this is an alien planet, I wonder if there might be any kind of “hostile” weather. Like a blizzard is something you can just be out in if it’s severe, maybe some maps will have crazy weather.


#8

If they do a snow based map at night I could see them doing a blizzard


#9

Well, there has been official concept art of an ice cave, so this isn’t too far from being a possibility


#10

Where did you find that concept art, @Plaff?


#11

It’s in the official UK Playstation magazine. If you didn’t know already, Evolve made the front page


#12

When it rains does it wash the footprints away of the monster? Now that would be awesome :smile:


#13

I think i hear somewhere it will wash it away


#14

I’m fairly confident it does. I’ve heard it somewhere in an interview on YouTube that the footprints vanish a lot faster


#15

That’s great then. Thanks for the responses.


#16

We could even imagine some floods ?..
The perfect way to having the Tyran really participate to his own hunt ^^


#17

I would love if the maps could flood and the tyrants came further up out of the pool, that’d be so cool.


#18

Especially considering this could be totally random !..

«Oh no, it’s starting raining…! But for how long ?»
«Long enough to let me chomp you, I hope…» (Tyran’s thought, if he could)


#19

Waist deep water with monsters lurking below the surface???
