Evolve, the promising looking evolutionary 4 vs 1 shooter from 2K and Turtle Rock Studios has gone gold today, the publisher has announced.
To celebrate the announcement, an all-new and really quite swanky CG trailer has been released for the game.
Evolve is set to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms on February 10th, 2015 and you can expect to hear our final impressions on the game closer to release.
You can catch both the trailer and the press release for the announcement below.
PRESS RELEASE – EVOLVE HAS GONE GOLD!
“While everyone else was celebrating the start of 2015, the Evolve team was eagerly awaiting final certification from first parties. And now we’re happy to announce that Evolve has “Gone Gold.”
Evolve is out the door. Off to the manufacturers. After that, it gets shipped to retail stores in time for launch on February 10th!
To celebrate, we’re doing a couple things:
For this big milestone (and as a way to thanking everyone for their support throughout the development process) we’re sharing Evolve’s awesome intro cinematic with everyone:
Additionally, our fans have been asking where they can buy our sweet Evolve merchandise. As of this morning, you will start seeing that merch show up in the 2K store!
And last, but not least, we have some beards to shave and hair to cut! Team members at Turtle Rock pledged to not shave or cut their hair until the game passed certification. For each inch of beard grown by the guys and hair cut by the ladies, we’d donate $50 to Child’s Play charity. The total length? 227.5 hairy inches! That comes out to $11,375 raised for Child’s Play – with the hair itself, if long enough, being donated to Locks of Love. 2K is matching the Turtle Rock Studios contribution, for a total donation of $22,750.
Now, with Evolve through certification, we’re turning our attention to any lessons we can learn from the Open Beta next week, then it’s back to work on some of the awesome DLC content that we’ve been teasing you about. Like, say, that fourth Monster.
We’ll have a lot more to share with you soon about all the additional content coming down the road, but for now all of Turtle Rock Studios (and the folks at 2K) want to say, “Thank you!”
We can’t thank you all enough for your support as we’ve worked on this game. All the conversations we’ve been having here, on Twitter and Facebook – to name a few places – have kept us going. Now, we’re excited to get Evolve into your hands so that you can tell us what you think!”
