Team One Reveals Live Action Trailer for 2K’s Evolve

By Erik Oster 

Team One has just revealed a live action trailer for 2K’s new game Evolve, which will be released on February 10th.

Set to a choral rendition of The Fugees,’ the trailer, entitled “Ready or Not” builds an air of mystery as a group of teens seem to play a game of Manhunt in the woods. Suddenly, another youngster runs and jumps from a ledge, landing in a pool of water and letting out a roar. The trailer doesn’t reveal much in the way of the game’s story, but does end with a brief look at game footage following a list of accolades and critical praise. The trailer (and soundtrack selection) refer to the fact that, according to a press release, “At its core, the title is an intense game of Hide and Seek.”


A broadcast version of the ad will appear during the premieres of Walking Dead and Better Call Saul on AMC this Sunday.
