Makes the Kraken look like a granny.  Part Nightcrawler, part Dracula, this dude is Bad. Ass.  Hunters gonna hafta up their game.  I cannot wait to watch CZORJ own with this Monster.

And news on the Beta  (January 15th!)

Players will get access to the game’s Hunt mode and can play with any of the eight Hunters, as well as Goliath and Kraken, across 12 of the game’s maps. All progress earned can be carried over to the main game when it releases in February. Xbox One owners can participate in the open beta starting on January 15 and can also begin to take part in Evacuation on January 17. All open beta festivities will run exclusively on Xbox One through January 19.  Via Shacknews.

    And LMAO! The tutorial on how to play offline. Love these Turtle Rock guys, and the support 2K is giving them.

    I saw this last night & it left me feeling disappointed. TRS went this route with their third monster probably because they can’t get the CryEngine to handle subterranean gameplay, as in terms of a burrowing monster. If that’s the case, Evolve’s future monster types will be limited. With the existence of the Wraith, it makes the Kraken seem redundant. Even though we’ve only experienced a limited sampling of the Kraken, its flight ability needs to be nerfed with a cool down feature. This new monster info was “Meh.”

      Ha ha You have that burrowing monster on your mind like I had Kong and Godzilla on mine. Don’t forget, if they implement a burrowing monster like Epic did with the Corpser, then the CryEngine should be just fine. Also, they have a fourth monster that has yet to be unveiled, plus more after the game releases.

      Have you had a chance to watch the Shacknews interview yet? They describe the three monsters per type:
      Goliath – FIghter, (Warrior)
      Kraken – Wizard,
      Wraith – Assassin. (Elf)
      The above “Types” should give us a hint as to what that fourth will be. If we are talking Gauntlet classes, then it will be a Valkyrie?!

      I would like to see a serpent. Easy to track and hit, but scary and deadly.

      Regardless, I understand your complaint and have big questions in my own mind. Will the fragility of the Wraith be sufficient in handicap to compensate for the incredible speed? Will the Hunters be able to take this beast down? Remember, Cornie plays with the Strider in Titanfall (even in Frontier Defense) because he is so fast and devastating that his fragility isn’t a disadvantage. Similarly in almost any shooter, speed is almost always a huge advantage for those who can control it.

      Finally, I would correct you. This new monster is awesome, the Kraken is very “Meh”.

      Correction, I meant to say that both the Kraken & Wraith are ‘meh.’

      See what happens when you mess with the big gorilla and lizard!! You get “Meh!” 😉

    I think it looks awesome. And the warrior, wizard, assassin comparisons are totally on-point.

    I am dead tired so I will make this short. Kenny and I had a great visit tonight about this game, and I realized that much of my anticipation is based on faith and assumption.

    I am assuming that:
    1. Matchmaking and map loading times will be reduced.
    2. The game will be balanced Neither monsters nor hunters will dominate the rounds consistently.
    3. Monsters will prove to be more varied in appearance and action than what we have been shown in the three monsters unveiled thus far.
    4. Choosing the “wrong” hunter will not mean that losing the round is a foregone conclusion.

    As for the Wraith, if it is based on a snake, why not just have made it a giant snake. It could still be just as fast with the same swirly, attack moves, but instead of coming from a fragile, ethereal dracula, it could have be from a very swift, land-dependant serpent whose body was quite strong. Yet, because it was a long serpent, it was easy to shoot.

    Anyway, just thinking out loud.
