Turtle Rock Studios, the original creator of Left 4 Dead, has announced its next game: Evolve. The asymmetric multiplayer shooter's being published by 2K Games, and is planned for release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this fall.

The game is the February cover story for Game Informer, which shares the first details. It pits a four-player crew against a single player-controlled monster that grows larger as the matches go on. Each human character has his or her own items and abilities, while the monster has its own much more powerful attacks. The asymmetric play seems right up the L4D team's alley. We'll update as more information becomes available.

      Could be interesting. Hopefully it's more like if they made the first Predator movie into a fps and not just a tank survival mode.

      The best part of L4D was playing as the special infected and making killer moves. One monster player won't allow that.

        That kind of asymmetric team based fps race to the end of the map thrill from l4d versus deserves to be it's own genre.

      Good, hopefully they can make the game that Natural Selection 2 was supposed to be.

      Reminds me of "The Hidden" or when someone unlocks the Rhino in NS1/2.

      I hope it's not like when you become the tank in l4d. It's great fun when everyone is a noob, but once you play with decent players you simply know the best way to kill it and just run back shooting etc. and it dies fast.
