2K has announced a month-long “Shear Madness” event in Evolve Stage 2.
From today and over the next five weeks, players can expect a weekly update bringing three more character adaptations, three new map variants, and an all-new co-op mode to the game.
Today marks the release of the Quantum Surge Update which includes new medic, Quantum Caira. According to developer Turtle Rock, Caira “keeps the team alive through sustained healing and careful positioning. Her Regeneration Fields create healing zones while her Neutron Barrier blocks damage for the whole team, as long as she’s in the right place. Unlike other medics she has no healing burst so a well-positioned Regeneration Field combined with a well-timed Proton Field are the keys to success”.
Also new is a Try before You Buy option, where all hunters, monsters, perks and skins are unlocked in the Training Mode, allowing you try each one out before committing your Silver Keys.
Other tweaks include “first steps towards improving widespread community issues on matchmaking and leavers” and a new set of Advanced Hunter tutorials, too.
Evolve was overhauled and re-launched as a free-to-play on PC as Evolve Stage 2 last month, with new game design, gameplay mechanics, and improved gameplay balance and system performance.
