Evolve gets four new Hunters, one new Monster and more on March 31

The first batch of paid downloadable content for Turtle Rock Studios' four-versus-one multiplayer shooter, Evolve, will arrive on March 31, publisher 2K Games announced today. In addition to the new playable characters, Evolve players will get two new maps and Observer Mode, which is designed to enhance match viewing and streaming for the game.

The four new Hunters coming to Evolve include the Assault character Torvald, a cyborg with a mortar cannon for an arm; the Trapper Crow, who is paired with a pet Batray for tracking the Monster; the Medic Slim, who looks like he's part insect; and Sunny, a Support character who's armed with a mininuke grenade launcher.

Evolve's new Hunters are included as part of the game's season pass, which runs $24.99. They can be purchased individually for $7.49 each.

The Behemoth joins the list of playable Monsters. It can turn itself into a rolling boulder for fast traversal. The Behemoth will be free for players who pre-ordered Evolve from participating retailers as part of the Monster Expansion Pack. Otherwise, it's available separately for $14.99.

The two new maps are called Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry. They'll be free for everyone, but Xbox One players get them first on March 31. PlayStation 4 and Windows PC players will have to wait until April 30 to get those maps.

You can get a glimpse at the new playable characters and maps in the gallery above. For more on the game, read Polygon's review of Evolve. More details on Turtle Rock's DLC plans for Evolve are available here. Check out Observer Mode in action in the video below.
