New, 40 comments

Turtle Rock's four-versus-one multiplayer game Evolve will get a slew of downloadable content this spring, including two new playable monsters and a total of six new Hunters spread across the game's pre-order incentives, a season pass and a pair of digital special editions.

Publisher 2K Games and Turtle Rock unveiled the game's fourth playable monster, the Behemoth, in a new teaser trailer today. The Behemoth will be available via pre-orders of Evolve on Xbox One or through the Digital Deluxe Edition, which costs $79.99 and is available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The game's Behemoth can also be purchased individually for $14.99.

Four additional Hunters will be made available through the game's season pass, which costs $24.99 and also includes three monster skins. Players will be able to purchase the Hunters — one for each of the game's four classes — individually for $7.49 each.
