The reanimated corpse of Evolve might be the next Left 4 Dead after all

Evolve was handed a raw deal when it launched in 2016. Turtle Rock Studios’ follow-up to Left 4 Dead was an intriguing competitive shooter torn asunder by, at the time, staggering microtransactions.

In 2022, Evolve’s DLC doesn’t feel all that egregious compared to rampant cosmetics across live service games. That’s more an indictment of how the industry has changed in six years, rather than support for Evolve itself, but does make it easier to divorce the core game from its expensive and confusing pay structure.
