Few independent studios sport the multiplayer pedigree of Turtle Rock Studios. After years of working on Valve's Counter-Strike series, the California-based developer created Left 4 Dead, a post-apocalyptic shooter that redefined cooperative gaming and landed the number-one spot on Game Informer's Top 30 Co-op Games of All Time list. Now the studio is combining its competitive and cooperative design expertise for a new, next-gen only IP: Evolve. Backed by publisher 2K Games, which paid a whopping $10.8 million for the IP in last year's THQ auction, Turtle Rock is taking full advantage of gamers' powerful new systems.

The sci-fi multiplayer-focused shooter pits a four-player crew of alien hunters against a separate player-controlled monster that grows larger and more powerful over the course of matches. Each hunter features its own unique items and abilities, and while the monster may be outnumbered, its size and an assortment of devastating attacks make it a more than formidable foe. Like Turtle Rock's previous titles, Evolve is being built with variety and replayabilty in mind; the result is a novel mix of cooperative and competitive multiplayer elements that's unlike anything we've played before. Our exclusive hands-on time with the game's four-versus-one hunt mode left us with plenty to be excited about, and you can get all the details in this month's issue.

Our 12-page look at Evolve reveals the first hunters, monster, and unique equipment players will get their hands on when the game releases on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this fall. We also have a wealth of exclusive screens and hands-on impressions you won't want to miss. Check out the cover image below for your first hint at what's to come.

I wanted something that was:

1. Singleplayer Only
2. Offline

That goes for both the Game informer reveal AND the original Left 4 Dead. As a single player only experience with a story and campaign it would have been awesome, but with multiplayer-forced it was just a big rush-fest. God, I hate multiplayer shooters. Enough already.

On Evolve, Turtle Rock’s ‘awesome, innovative’ shooter

“It’s an awesome game and I can’t wait for that to come out. I can tell you that Evolve was one of my favourite things we were working on, it was playable even in my last year there – that goes back two years – people in the office were playing it and having a blast.

“In the hands of Take Two, with the support to finish and good marketing spend, I can’t wait for them to finish. It’s really innovative and really awesome. I can’t actually tell you anything about it, though.

Evolve is still in development at Turtle Rock after it was bought by Take Two for $10.8 million in THQ’s bankruptcy sale.

try going back in time

or just looking a little beyond whatever games might come on the cover of game informer

i also like how we know nothing about it, but youre very certain it would have been great as a single player experience

5 players? It's not often you get a multiplayer game with odd numbers. I'm guessing the single alien is especially powerful.
