Turtle Rock Studios are allowing gamers on both Xbox One and PC to play their multiplayer arena title, Evolve for free this weekend. Play as one of 4 hunters as you try to take down a player controlled monster.
“We’re very excited to announce that Evolve will be playable for free this weekend on Xbox One and PC. You can experience everything Evolve has to offer: Four Monsters, 18 Hunters across four unique classes, five game modes, 19 maps, and the newly released Hunt 2.0 – all playable for free this weekend. Following the free weekend, players that purchase the game will retain the progress they earn in the base game (not DLC unlocks).”
Check out the video below, where some advice is offered to newcomers during the free weekend madness.
