2K and Turtle Rock Studios announced that one new Monster and four new Hunters are coming to Evolve. Offered individually, or as part of Hunting Season 2, all five new characters will be made available prior to March 31, 2016.
The first new character, Lennox (Assault class), will be available tomorrow, June 23rd. Those who purchase the new Monster and Hunters as part of Season 2 will also receive an additional exclusive skin with the launch of each of the five new included playable characters.
Lennox (Assault class) is the first Hunter to feature a melee attack. Her Thunderchild mechanized suit is equipped with a Plasma Lance that deals massive amounts of damage in close combat, while her Autocannon and Thunder Strike attack allow Lennox to fight when outside of melee range.
“The new Monster and Hunters coming to Evolve in Hunting Season 2 are some of the most unique characters our team has created,” said Chris Ashton, co-founder and design director at Turtle Rock Studios. “Each of these characters introduces combat mechanics that are brand new to the Evolve gameplay experience.”
