It's not just a shooter. It's a cooperative team-based shooter with loads of potential.

2K Games has announced that the latest from Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock studios, Evolve , is headed to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this fall.

It's described as an "asymmetrical team shooter," as it can support up to five players: Four will assume the role of a Hunter (which utilize a first-person perspective) and the fifth will be the Monster (which is controlled in the third-person viewpoint). The idea is that the Hunters must find a way to take down the Monster; multiple Monsters will present distinct challenges due to differing skills. The game also features the revered CryEngine from Crytek.

If you want to pre-order the game, you'll snag the Monster Expansion Pack, which includes a Savage Goliath Skin and a new Monster character. The latter won't be ready until a little after the title hits store shelves, but that's okay. Lastly, don't forget that Take-Two Interactive bought the IP rights to Evolve last year. THQ went bankrupt and when they auctioned off their properties, Take-Two snagged this one for $10.8 million.

Sounds like a replacement for a game of tag.

Sounds like an interesting twist on standard mechanics, but a big fat pass from me.

This isn't an MMO; thus far there is no "cool universe" behind the gameplay concept and Turtle Rock may be talented, but they sure ain't big. Just pointing out some flaws.

The MMO market is an expanding one with a lot of promise. The previous generation showed that people like to play with each other. Now, developers and publishers want to see how far that idea can be pushed.
