Evolve Going Free-To-Play

Word has it that Turtle Rock Studios' game Evolve is going free-to-play. Blue's News rounded up all the pertinent details, linking a post from the Turtle Rock forums that laid out the plans for the game as it moves forward. Here's a snippet:

Here’s how it’s going to work: We’re going to make Evolve free on PC as a Beta starting on July 7. This is going to allow us to hit our new server infrastructure really hard and we need your help testing. Stuff could break, and that’s our hope, because that will give us time to improve things as we go. We’ll parse out major Beta revisions, updates and features over a period of weeks and months -- a plan we're going to continually communicate here. This allows us to test new features and major changes to make our game more accessible and ever closer to the joy we saw when we first showed our baby to the world. Just as importantly, this Beta plan gives us the flexibility and time we need to keep fixing bugs and making Evolve more stable.
