Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve has been out for a few weeks now, and the developer is ready to drop patch 1.1 into the fray. 2k has patch notes over on their site. Here they are:
- Fixes issue on Xbox One with progress and save game data lost
- Fixes issue with shadows/flashlight on Xbox One
- Incremental improvements to matchmaking, invites, and rejoining on Xbox One
- Various progression balance changes
- Fixes issue where more than one class spawns, creating 5-man team
The big one is the fix for data loss on the Xbox One, and even then the bug only affected a “small percentage of players.” If you haven’t been hunted by this bloodthirsty bug, then 1.1 is pretty minor. There are tiny tweaks to matchmaking, balance, and graphical effects, as well.
Our own Neil Connors enjoyed Evolve’s unique, asymmetrical take on multiplayer shooters, but was disappointed by the repetitive nature of the limited game modes. Read New Gamer Nation’s review here.
Evolve launched on February 10th to relative praise. Turtle Rock made a name for themselves with their co-op zombie shooter Left 4 Dead and its sequel. Check out this nifty infographic for more details on Evolve’s first week of the most dangerous game. What’s most impressive is a near 50/50 win percentage between Monsters and Hunters, evidence of some precise balance on Turtle Rock’s end.
Patch 1.1 will download automatically next time you boot up Evolve. Happy hunting!
