2K and Turtle Rock Studios today announced that Kala, a new Support class Hunter, is now available for Evolve™, the 4v1 shooter in which four Hunters cooperatively fight to take down a single-player controlled Monster. This unique new Support character utilizes abilities similar to those possessed by Evolve’s various Monsters. Kala is available individually or as part of Hunting Season 2*, which also includes Gorgon (Monster), Lennox (Assault class), Jack (Trapper class) and Emet (Medic class).
Dr. Kala Kapur is an expert on Monster biology and has spliced their DNA into her own genome in order to control the Monsters’ abilities and use them in battle. Her array of unique abilities include:
- Siren Missiles – an improvement on Kraken technology, these airborne missiles home in on nearby enemies. When placed on the ground, they become more powerful, slower moving homing mines;
- Teleport Pads – an improvement on Wraith technology, these pads allow teammates to move instantaneously from one part of the map to another;
- Armor Reducer – using Goliath’s armor technology, the Armor Reducer shoots a beam which temporarily removes the Monster’s armor. The armor quickly regenerates once the beam connection breaks.
