Evolve finds well-deserved appreciatiion at the E3 Critic Awards

Turtle Rock Studios may have a future block buster on their hands after their FPS, Evolve, won best of show at the E3 Critic Awards in addition to four other honors.

Coming out October 21 this year, Evolve shows many of the characteristics that Left 4 Dead incorporated into their franchise with a four-man online multiplayer team taking down an immensely powered player controlled monster. Evolve could bring a multiplayer experience to next-gen consoles that is certainly lacking.

Playstation exclusive, No Man’s Sky was awarded three awards (Best original, Best indie, and the Special Commendation for Innovation).
