2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios have announced a new upcoming mode for the well-received multiplayer-oriented shooter, Evolve .
As revealed at the game's official website , Observer Mode is coming soon to all platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC). This is a community feature that lets a sixth user watch a custom match, with tools that allow this individual to switch between the four Hunters and the lone Monster. The viewer sees a unique HUD that updates in real time; it gives us all the health, perks and survival odds info.

"Shoutcasting" is one of those next-gen terms that everyone will probably know in the near future; you can livestream various matches, put 'em up on Twitch, and add your own commentary as the Observer. It's probably useful training if you're interested in a career as a host or announcer or something.
