Evolve Adds This New Hunter Who Has a Sonic Disruptor Harpoon Gun

    Following Evolve's switch to become a free-to-play game, developer Turtle Rock has now released a "new" version the Trapper character Griffin. Called "Electro Griffin," this is a variation on the spike-wielding hunter, and he is available now in Evolve Stage 2 on PC.
    Electro Griffin's weapons include a Laser Storm SMG that slows the movement of anything it touches, as well as a "sonic disruptor" harpoon gun called The Final Lockdown. He can also use an Electro suit that gives him "full movement speed" while firing to bolster his mobility. These are variations on the standard Griffin abilities, but with the "Electro" twist.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Evolve: Stage 2 is currently only available on PC. It's completely free with no microtransactions for now. While playing the game, you collect Silver Keys, which are used to unlock things like hunters, monsters, and skins. A Silver Key price was not mentioned for Electro Griffin, but we've followed up with publisher 2K in an attempt to find out.
    Those who bought the game are upgraded to "Founder" status, which gives them access to everything they already owned. Turtle Rock has said it plans to "show [its] appreciation for [its] committed fans and early adopters with gifts, rewards, and special access."
    Turtle Rock has also said it will bring Evolve: Stage 2 to consoles eventually. The reason it's not on consoles at the moment is because of the long certification process that each update is required to go through on consoles. Turtle Rock wants to bring all of the fixes it makes on PC to consoles at once, making the process much smoother for players.
    The shift to going free brought multiple tweaks and changes to Evolve. Overall performance and load times have been improved, and the Hunter classes have been reworked to make it so teams are less reliant on experienced trappers and medics. You can see more of the changes here.
    Since going free-to-play, Evolve added more than 1 million new players. Before the business model switch, parent publisher Take-Two Interactive said Evolve was a "permanent" franchise in its portfolio alongside Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. Whether or not a future Evolve title, if one ever happens, also uses a free-to-play model remains to be seen.
