The Evolution of Evolve –– Episode 2: The Iterative Process of Turtle Rock Studios
Turtle Rock’s assurances that the iterative process will continue long after the game’s release is probably the most honest (and rarest) approach to making a great game with lots of innovation. I am very curious to see to what extent 2K supports them in putting out free DLC (another thing they have promised). One thing that probably won’t change at all is the length of time for map loading. I was thinking about that again today and maybe, for me, it will be something I don’t mind so much, like the Valley of Death in Gears. Often dying early, I did a lot of watching and waiting, and chatting with others as they joined me. It was a welcome break from the intensity of the gameplay. Though, admittedly, spectating is different from staring at a loading screen. Anyway, the game is deep, intense, teamwork oriented, and full of narrative. Can’t wait!
