Evolve going free-to-play on PC

Consoles will be free-to-play if the PC version is successful.


Evolve, the four-versus-one first-person shooter from 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios, will go free-to-play on PC as a beta starting tomorrow, July 7, the developer announced. “Should it prove successful,” the intent is also to make it free-to-play on consoles.

Many more updates to the game are planned following the free-to-play release, including:

  • Hunter class reworkings to make the team less reliant on having experienced trappers and medics.
  • Improvements to the maps and UI.
  • Improving load times, overall performance, and getting into the game faster.
  • Improving stability and fixing bugs.
  • Completely reworking progression system and tutorials.
  • More customization options.
