2K Games has announced that it will shut down the dedicated servers for Evolve on September 3rd. As such, several game features will no longer be available, such as Hunt (Ranked), leaderboards, and the in-game store. Moreover, Stage 2 will no longer be available on PC.
However, this does not mean though that the game will not be playable as peer-to-peer multiplayer will still be available in Legacy Evolve. Moreover, on July 2nd, 2K games will remove all virtual currency bundles from Evolve Stage 2 and they will no longer be available for purchase.
As said, the free-to-play PC version, Evolve Stage 2, will not be available from September 3rd onward. In order to access Legacy Evolve, you’ll need a copy of the F2P version so we strongly suggest acquiring it if you are remotely interested in it.
Last but not least, here is how you can access Legacy Evolve:
- Right-click Evolve in Steam and select “Properties”
- Go to the “Betas” tab
- In the dropdown, select “legacyevolve – The Original Evolve Product”
- Click “Close”
- Wait for the game to download the differences
- Enjoy Legacy Evolve
