New, 20 comments

Turtle Rock Studios' competitive shooter Evolve launches tomorrow with a 3 GB day-one patch that introduces general bug fixes and improvements to performance, according to a post from the studio.

Gamers will need to download the patch before entering online matches, full details of which can be found here. According to the studio, the patch size will vary between systems but will remain around 3 GB. The patch will fix load times in matchmaking and optimize network bandwith, as well as open connectivity to work with the recently released match three Evolve Hunters Quest app.

You can also expect newly added Elite skins for Hunters and Monsters based on community feedback.

Evolve will be released for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Feb. 10. Polygon reviewed the game with a rating of 8 out of 10. "Evolve occasionally brushes against a real breakthrough for Turtle Rock, with its distinctive take on a different kind of multiplayer shooter," the review reads. "New territory always presents new problems, and Evolve doesn't always solve them. But it distinguishes itself from the pack of multiplayer options out there with the flair of something truly different."
