2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios have announced that they will soon be releasing a free “Observer” mode for their recently released monster hunting game Evolve for all platforms that Evolve can be found on, according to recent reports. The “Observer” mode will enable a sixth player to enter into a multiplayer game of Evolve and watch as the game unfolds, with the ability to switch between each of the Hunters as well as the Monsters. The “Observer” mode will enable players to.
- Be A Shoutcaster.
You can now have Custom matches with one to five players, then add an Observer to your game, using the Hunter/Monster selection screen. Not only can you watch the game as the sixth player, but you can also use Observer mode to livestream these matches with added commentary. Think you got what it takes to be the next DB? Now you’ll have the tools to give him a run for his money.
- Jump Between Character Cameras.
One of the coolest things about watching a match live is being able to see the Hunters coordinate and then jump to where the Monster is lurking. With Observer Mode, you’ll be able to seamlessly switch views between Hunters and Monster. Once a character camera is selected you’ll be able to rotate the camera around the character to see what is happening behind or beside them. Just highlight the Hunter (or Monster) you want to see and you’re there.
- MiniMax The HUD.
We have created a custom HUD that gives you vital information about everyone playing without the on-screen clutter. Want to see stuff like the current perks being used and expected survival odds? Done. Want to overlay the minimap? No problem. Just want to enjoy a cinematic angle? Toggle the whole thing off, kick back and enjoy the view. On top of all this, you can even outline characters, making it easier to see them across the map.
For what else the “Observe” mode will let players do for Evolve, you can head over to the Evolve website to find out more. In related news, both 2K and Turtle Rock have announced that they will be holding an Evolve eSport tournament on March 6, which will feature a mix of both amateur and professional eSport players spread across a total of eight teams, although competitors have yet to be announced.
The single-elimination tournament will have teams face-off as both monsters and hunters in best of three matches. This event will take place at PAX East’s ESL Arena. For those who are unable to attend the event in person, the tournament will be streamed live through the Evolve Twitch channel. 2K and Turtle Rock Studios have also recently released a patch which will fix many of the problems that have been plaguing Evolve since its release.
