Evolve is no longer releasing in 2014, allowing more time for Turtle Rock to drip feed details ahead of its now early 2015 shipping date. In the above Gamescom 2014 trailer the Kraken faces off against four human foes in a new map called Distillery.

When fiction implies that humans are the real monsters, it rarely means it this literally. Evolve, the asymmetrical online shooter from Turtle Rock, pits four players against one hulking, monstrous friend—an evolving beast of destructive force. If you want to exercise your inner weird-jawed, growling colossus, you'll have the chance later this year. 2K have just announced the game's release date, revealing it will be available to clawed paws all around the world on 21 October.

This is a clever use for YouTube's annotations feature. Rather than a giant, unavoidable "oh please, why won't you just subscribe" box, this new Evolve trailer lets you jump between the perspectives of the four humans and one monster fighting it out across a single round. Can't handle that much choice? Just pop it in Commentary mode, and watch eight minutes of action from Turtle Rock's upcoming co-op shooter.

All the better to eat you with.
