Evolve's new hunters and monster launch today — see them in action

Turtle Rock Studios' multiplayer shooter Evolve gets a fresh quartet of Hunters today in the game's new downloadable content. Those Hunters will also be able to fight a new monster, Behemoth, which is capable of turning into a deadly rolling boulder.

The four new Hunters playable in 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 is free for those who pre-ordered Evolve from select retailers as part of the Monster Expansion Pack. It's available separately for $14.99.

Players who haven't purchased the new DLC will still be able to play with alongside players who have, publisher 2K Games says.

Evolve is also getting two new maps today, but only on Xbox One. Those maps will come to the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions on April 30. All players will get Observer Mode today, which lets a sixth player watch games.
