Evolve Stage 2 Is Bring Us Electro Griffin… Boogaloo


A new-ish character is coming to Evolve Stage 2 as one of the original hunters from Evolve is getting a solid makeover for you to earn up to

That didn't take too long for the new Evolve to get yet another character update added into the mix. It looks like Turtle Rock Studios is truly behind this IP and don't want it to fall behind like so many other 2K Games titles out there that have. That is all in the past and as we wait for Evolve Stage 2 to hit the PS4 and Xbox One we have a new character joining in the mix for the PC version. Although I say new character, it is really just a new skin and weapon mechanics for a fan favorite character from before. That character being of course Griffin.

Here we have Electro Griffin added into the mix of unlockable characters in Evolve Stage 2. He has been given the fun 80s makeover that seems to be the go to for developers as of late but in this case it looks like they took a page from The Running Man and turned him into an electric flinging, laser shooting badass. Not only in looks either as these effects also move over to the basic moves that Griffin has already. That's right, his harpoon will not only hold the monster in place but will do some damage over time. The same goes with his SMG that just slowed the monster down before.

When I see all of this extra damage dealing power for this character it makes me see that things might get unbalanced in Evolve over time. Especially if this is a sign of things to come from Turtle Rock Studios. Granted, they have been on point to make things as balanced as possible so maybe the damage over time adds into the total damage that can be produced so that his weapons hit softer but he has the other abilities too now. Either that or this is a test to see if they do this to other characters and monsters it will balance itself right out again. I guess we'll see as Evolve does just what its name states.
