Play Evolve this weekend for free Gold monster skins

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.

Want to join the hunt? If so, I'd suggest reading our Evolve review VERY carefully, then consider buying Evolve for £28.85 on Xbox One or £29.99 on PS4.

not a problem Jon :) I wouldn't be surprised if they significantly reduce the price on the next steam sale, but with map DLC being free I question how Turtle Rock expects to make additional money now. My fear is they'll review the number of players after the sale, see the same player-base decline and question if they should add any additional content...

Heh, I've been saving your tweet for a rainy day - or more accurately for 2K to crow about something so I can rain on their parade. Thanks again.

Will keep an eye on it - sadly MS and Sony jealously hoard their stats, though MS does occasionally publish some info.
