Evolve Behemoth reveal trailer and DLC plans released

2K and Turtle Rock Studios are on a rampage today (Pun intended) with the release trailer showcasing upcoming Evolve nasty, the Behemoth,  but also outlining their DLC plans. And let me be the first to start that these plans are crazy and most of the interest I’ve had the game have quickly diminished. Why do companies continue to create DLC along side the original product development instead of baking it into the release? 

Seriously folks, check out the full details below or at Evolve website – here. I’m really disappointing with you 2K and Turtle Rock, pushing DLC like this.

2K and Turtle Rock Studios today announced downloadable content details for Evolve™, including a Hunting Season Pass, Digital Deluxe Edition, PC Monster Race Edition, a fourth playable monster, Behemoth, and more. The Evolve Hunting Season Pass includes four new playable Hunter characters available this spring, and three exclusive Monster skins available at launch on February 10, 2015. Fans planning to buy the Hunting Season Pass can purchase the Evolve Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes the Evolve main game plus the Hunting Season Pass at a greater savings value. The Evolve Digital Deluxe Edition is available for pre-purchase now as a digital download for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and for Windows PC from participating retailers, and will be available soon as a digital download for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The Evolve PC Monster Race Edition adds even more content and savings, and is available for pre-purchase now as a digital download for Windows PC from participating retailers.

Additionally, Evolve is now available for pre-purchase as a digital download for Xbox One. Players who pre-purchase Evolve digitally on Xbox One starting today can pre-load the game now through launch on February 10, 2015. Also starting today, players can pre-load the Evolve Xbox One Open Beta, which begins at 12:00 PM ET on January 15, 2015. Pre-purchasing Evolve or the Evolve Digital Deluxe Edition for Xbox One grants players an exclusive instant unlock of the third Monster and the third tier of Hunters at launch and for use during the Xbox One Open Beta.

2K and Turtle Rock Studios today also revealed the fourth playable Monster: Behemoth. Behemoth is a tank of a Monster that becomes a giant, destructive boulder and rolls through the environment for quick traversal. Behemoth will be available for purchase this spring for $14.99, or as part of the Monster Expansion Pack, which is free* for those who pre-order and pre-purchase Evolve, and also includes the Savage Goliath Skin at launch.
