Turtle Rock Studios and 2k Games announced their highly anticipated competitive/co-operative shooter Evolve has gone gold. The game has passed certification and has now been sent to factories to be pressed, packaged, and shipped to retailers in time for the February 10th, 2015 release date. In the mean time, the intro cinematic has been released on YouTube and an Open Beta kicks off next week.
Turtle Rock Studios also announced the results of their company fundraiser for Child’s Play. Male team members pledged to not shave and female team members agreed to not cut their hair until Evolve passed certification. For every inch grown by the team, they planned on making a donation of $50. The result was 227.5 inches or $11,375 raised to help outfit children’s hospitals around the world with toys, books, and games. The hair isn’t going to waste either! The charity Locks of Love will be using some of the cut hair to create wigs for children with medical conditions.
