Evolve's 4th Monster Revealed

Unleash the Behemoth!

The 4th Monster for Evolve has been officially revealed and it's the Behemoth.

Check out the Reveal Trailer!

That's one Huge Ass Monsta!!

I certainly wouldn't want to end up like that Griffin in the trailer.

The Evolve Official Site's description of Behemoth is hilariously funny by the way. It feels like whoever wrote it, saw Behemoth for the first time and given a laptop to pen his first impressions.

Maybe it's just me reading it excitedly..

"It is the largest monster in Evolve. It is the largest monster there will ever be in Evolve. He was literally made as large as we could make him.

Everything the hunters have learned, how to deal with Goliath’s epic Leap Strike and Flame Breath, how to jetpack dodge Kraken’s Lightning Strike, how to recognize Wraith’s Decoy, all that is useless.

Against Behemoth, it’s a new game.

Hunters must now deal with a rolling juggernaut. A creature so powerful it summons massive walls of rock to block off the terrain, isolate and destroy individual hunters, or shield itself from their weapons. It hurls exploding blasts of magma at anyone foolish enough to fight it.

Behemoth is so large, he cannot leap or jump. He moves by rolling across the landscape like a juggernaut. He can climb, but just as the hunters must develop new strategies, so must Behemoth players. Climbing is slow, and when you are slow, you are an easy target. It’s almost always better to roll away.

He has the most armor, the most health and you do NOT want to be on the receiving end of a punch. He’ll need it. Because he’s so big, he’s slower and presents a much larger target.

No humans can stand against it. The hunters are doomed."

I dunno about you guys.. but I 'loled' when I read that.

Here's a look at his abilities..

Lava Bombs: Effective at short and long range, these mortar bombs shatter into fragments and continue to burn the area around them, including any Hunters who find themselves in the damage radius.

Rock Wall: Creates a large, semi-circular rock structure that either traps victims inside with Behemoth, or locks him away from attackers.

Tongue Grab: Behemoth uses his harpoon-like tongue to snatch a distant target and pull it into melee.

Fissure: A wave of destruction blasts out of Behemoth, fracturing the terrain and scalding and stunning everything in its path.

This Huge Ass Monsta!! won't be available at launch however as it's still in the works.

Behemoth will be available as a DLC character for US$14.99 but if you already know how awesome this game is, you should be taking advantage of the Monster Expansion Pack which is a free PreOrder Bonus and will include 
- Behemoth as a playable Monster &
- the exclusive Savage Goliath Skin.

Just 1 more time.. Huge Ass Monsta!!!
