This Thursday, Xbox One owners will be able to join in an open beta for Turtle Rock Studios' upcoming asymmetrical shooter, Evolve — some PS4 and Windows PC players will be able to take part in a limited closed beta, too. If you're looking for a primer on how the game's hunters and monsters operate (or an update on how they've changed since Evolve's Big Alpha), check out the video posted above.
In it, myself and a few Polygon staffers play through three full matches of the game's standard Hunt mode. If you've never played, Evolve actually has a bit of a learning curve, as evidenced by our first, lightning quick match. The second is a bit more balanced; our monster tries to strike a balance between evolving and player-killing, but ends up getting his comeuppance after a lengthy pursuit. The final match is a complete bloodbath. Enjoy, but be forewarned, the video is NSFW — monster hunting elicits plenty of involuntary swearing.
