Evolve's ridiculous barrage of cosmetic DLC is pretty distasteful as far as we're concerned, but at least they're giving some of it away for free. Anyone who plays Evolve this weekend (between 9:00 PM PT on Thursday, March 5th to 9:00 PM PT on Sunday, March 8th) will receive a free set of golden monster skins that were previously only available if you actually worked at Turtle Rock.
Is Evolve's player base holding up? We're not entirely sure, but the Steam charts show a marked decline that's more pronounced than we'd expect even considering the natural post-launch dropoff (thanks to Rbourne for the tip). That's the nature of the beast, since Evolve can be fantastic when played under optimum conditions, but can be incredibly repetitive and boring at times too.
