What Exactly Is “Founder” Status?


Hello, Hunters!

With the launch of Evolve: Stage 2, you may be wondering what “Founder Status” is.

Long story short, Founder Status is a special status created to thank and reward those Evolve players who owned the game and supported us before the game staged up.

Going forward, Founders will receive special in-game items, currency, and other goodies.

Starting out, Founders will receive the following in Evolve: Stage 2.

  • 3,000 Silver Keys
  • All past and future Adaptations for previously-owned Hunters and Monsters
  • Dozens of Weapon Skins
  • Four unique, animated, Founder Badges
  • Dozens of Perks, both for Hunters and Monsters
  • Any Hunters, Monsters, and/or Skins previously owned will be carried over to Evolve: Stage 2

If you aren’t a Founder (read: You didn’t previously own Evolve on PC), you’ll start fresh and have to unlock the game’s content as you go.

You can see a more detailed breakdown of what Founders will receive over here at the official Evolve site
