Evolve is a shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead that puts four players against a player-controlled monster. The game launched in February to mostly positive reviews.

The free weekend begins on Xbox One at 12:01 AM Pacific on September 4 and ends at 11:59 PM Pacific on September 6. The PC free weekend begins at 12:00 PM Pacific on September 3 and ends at 10:00 AM Pacific on September 7.

The free weekend includes four playable monsters and eighteen playable hunters across four unique classes, five game modes and nineteen maps.

The developers at Turtle Rock Studios are also adding the Meteor Goliath permanently for all Evolve players beginning September 3. Meteor Goliath spreads his attacks using increased range and residual fire damage and has the following abilities:

  • Rock Throw now travels faster and lights enemies on fire
  • Leap Smash has increased range and lights enemies on fire
  • Fire Breath has increased range and emits blue flames
  • Charge has a longer duration and lights enemies on fire

Finally, 2K will allow all Evolve players to experience the currently available DLC characters for free on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Characters from the Hunting Season 1 will be playable for 24 hours beginning on September 4 while Hunting Season 2 characters will run for the same amount of time beginning on September 5.
