First Evolve trailer, “Happy Hunting,” hints at PAX East debut

2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios have released the first trailer for Evolve, the latest cooperative shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead.

The trailer, officially known as “Happy Hunting,” uses pre-rendered video to show us the game’s four character classes including a heavy weapons guy, a shield/healer specialist, a defensive character (check out the harpoon gun), and a jetpack-besuited butterfly woman. The cinematic battle against a raging alien is also sountracked to an awesome cover of Danzig’s “Mother” by Lissie.

I’m not sure what to make of Evolve, but this first trailer definitely ticked a few of my pop culture boxes including a pinch of Predator, a dash of Muldoon from Jurassic Park, and a bit of Duck Dynasty. But we’ll get a closer look at Evolve in April as Turtle Rock and 2K plan to bring the game to PAX East in some form.

Evolve is in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One and will be released this Fall.
