Evolve's player base explodes as it transitions to Free to Play.

Evolve Lives Up to Its Name and Goes Free to Play

Evolve's player base explodes as it transitions to Free to Play.

Turtle Rock Studios [TRS] added a countdown timer to the Evolve website that left players wondering what update or announcement was coming. At the end of the timer it was announced that Evolve would be “evolving” into Evolve Stage 2.

Evolve Stage 2 is Turtle Rock Studios’ answer to their dwindling player base. The game’s new iteration is now free to play with micro-transactions. The game was flooded with new players upon re-release, an increase from roughly 100 to 20,000+.

The increase in player base is to be expected, but what was slightly off was the regression in beta stage. In this beta stage, TRS removes already existing content to be tweaked, redesigned, and improved for a later release. What players are left with is a game that has roughly the same content as was available for its initial release in early 2015.

Only time will tell if Evolve Stage 2 will be able to hold on to its influx of new players as it works through its post-launch beta.
