This morning, Game Informer revealed the artwork and cover story for its February 2014 issue. The feature focuses on Turtle Rock Studios, the folks behind Valve’s "Counter-Strike" series and "Left 4 Dead,” as they prepare to launch a next-generation title called “Evolve.” The IP was obtained by 2K Games for $10.8 million when THQ was liquidated last year. The cover of next month’s issue looks like something out of the movie “Alien,” and the synopsis sort of does, too. “The sci-fi multiplayer-focused shooter pits a four-player crew of alien hunters against a separate player-controlled monster that grows larger and more powerful over the course of the matches,” Game Informer’s Jeff Marchiafava explains. (Okay, so, it’s “Alien” meets “Left 4 Dead”).

Multiple news outlets are touting Turtle Rock’s blending of cooperative and competitive play for “Evolve,” more detail of which is inevitability going to be explored in the twelve-page feature. The game will indeed be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime this fall, which may seem like a long time from now, but expect to see a lot more hype related to the game build over those months. Game Informer has pledged to follow the game’s development through a series of recorded interviews with Turtle Rock at their California studio.

Speaking of “Alien,” however, SEGA has officially announced today first-person survival game “Alien: Isolation” slated for a release later this year on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. View the slideshow for a first look at screenshots from the game.
