Patch Notes: 10/25/2016


Hello, Hunters. Hello, Monsters.

Please read the notes below about the latest update to Evolve Stage 2 

Behemoth Adaptation - Glacial Behemoth

  • The latest Monster adaptation is launching today, with Glacial Behemoth!
  • Do you feel a chill? The Hunters sure do. Check out below for a quick rundown on what Glacial Behemoth is bringing to the Hunt!
    • Ice Shield - Works the opposite of Living Fortress, starts off high damage resistance at full stacks. As the Hunters deal more damage the stacks break away leaving Glacial Behemoth vulnerable once all stacks are removed.
    • Killing Frost - Moderate damage ice projectile explodes with Frost that slows reload and swap speeds.
    • Ice Spear - Moderate damage skillshot that impales targets if knocked back into a wall.
    • Frozen Monolith - A frozen pillar erupts from the ground dealing damage and summoning a blizzard. The blizzard slows and deals damage.
    • Deep Freeze - Low damage ice wave activating after melee attacks and slows Hunter movement.
