Evolve as you know it has been completely overhauled and is being re-launched on PC today as Evolve Stage 2, with new game design, gameplay mechanics, and improved gameplay balance and system performance. Starting today you can play Evolve Stage 2 completely free on PC via Steam.
Like Team Fortress 2, Evolve will now be a totally free to play multiplayer game. If you previously owned the game or bought the DLC packs, those will carry on into the new version, and you will be given "Founder Status" in Evolve Stage 2.
What is a Founder? - Any player who previously owned Evolve on Steam or bought any DLC content such as skins or characters will have all paid content carry over into Evolve Stage 2. Not only do you get all your old content, Founders will get exclusive badges, skins and other cosmetic items as we continue to update Evolve Stage 2 in the weeks to come.
