Evolve is one of the best shooters I have played in a long time. This game is amazing. Each person – monster, medic, support, trapper, assault – each play unique and have a specific role. If done right, victory is almost guaranteed. It just depends on which side you’re on!
Evacuation is a campaign mode set over 5 days where the objective is to save or destroy the colony. If either team wins they get a bonus for the next round. They change the maps based on hunting, nest protecting/destroying eggs, Rescuing/killing soldiers and the last one is base defense while the monster tries to storm through all the generators to destroy the last one to stop the colony from leaving.
In this gameplay video, I play as the monster, specifically the Goliath! A big brute that crushes any in his path… Well, if I evolve first.
From the start of the game you get a 30 second head start to RUN! If you don’t, you will die fast. As a stage 1 monster with no shield, you will be killed fast. The problem is if you run, you leave foot prints or disturb birds and the trackers can use that to find you. Some strategies I’ve seen have people trying to get as far away as possible so they can start feasting on wildlife in order to build their shield and be ready for the first fight, and hopefully survive to then Evolve.
If you use stealth and sneak, you leave no foot prints but do not get as far away. I’m a predator, so I choose to sneak right away and leave the hunters with no clue as to where I am. So not only can I feast on wildlife and get shield but I can also evolve easily to stage 2, putting the fight on even ground without being touched once.
Your environment is everything in this game. Know where you are! And even better, force the hunters to fight you on your grounds, not theirs. Those tracks they are following could lead right to a trap. In this hunt, you will see me do just that as not only do they have to fight me with full shield, they have to fight me with poison clouds surrounding them – and also wildlife! Then eventually stage 2 Evolve after purposely leading them through more poison clouds.
I also utilize my minions! Only attacking when I have back up and full shield. Also knowing when to retreat! all these things tactics lead to me defeating the hunters in all 5 days and destroying the colony!
