Evolve Ultimate Edition Coming to Xbox One And PlayStation 4

There was a great deal of hype surrounding Evolve’s release as fans expected a similar experience to Turtle Rock Studios’ iconic shooter, Left 4 Dead. Sadly, Evolve’s player base is almost non-existent as the community became disgusted by the huge array of cosmetic day 1 DLC. The studio massively underestimated the backlash to these microtransactions and hoped to entice players with enthralling co-op gameplay. Putting the terrible business model aside, Evolve didn’t offer anything unique and relied on its multiplayer focus to keep people entertained.

Given the game’s torrid state, it seems the developer is trying to relaunch and gain back fans with an ultimate edition. 2K has confirmed the new edition will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but there’s no word about a PC version. The game will retail for $60, which is very steep considering the standard version was recently on sale for a mere $4.99 from the Xbox storefront. Even more absurd, the ultimate edition doesn’t contain every piece of DLC. This shows they haven’t learnt anything from the dwindling user base and reasons why Evolve has become a failure. While it did quite well commercially early on, most people have moved onto something else and the game has a poor reputation.
