Evolve’s Spectator-Friendly Observer Mode Coming To All Platforms


Even before Evolve launched across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC last month, the core, 4v1 dynamic of Turtle Rock’s asymmetric shooter lent itself to the eSports scene. Now, the studio has went one step further by unveiling the all-new Observer Mode, which allows a sixth player to spectate that action from an array of different perspectives. Heck, there’s even a Daisy cam.

In unveiling the spectator-friendly mode, Turtle Rock detailed exactly what users can expect when it rolls out over the next few weeks

Be a Shoutcaster

You can now have Custom matches with 1 to 5 players, then add an Observer to your game, using the Hunter/Monster selection screen. Not only can you watch the game as the sixth player, but you can also use Observer mode to livestream these matches with added commentary. Think you got what it takes to be the next DB [of 2K]? Now you’ll have the tools to give him a run for his money.

Jump Between Character Cameras

One of the coolest things about watching a match live is being able to see the Hunters coordinate and then jump to where the Monster is lurking. With Observer Mode, you’ll be able to seamlessly switch views between Hunters and Monster. Once a character camera is selected you’ll be able to rotate the camera around the character to see what is happening behind or beside them. Just highlight the Hunter (or Monster) you want to see and you’re there.

MinMax the HUD

We have created a custom HUD that gives you vital information about everyone playing without the on-screen clutter. Want to see stuff like the current perks being used and expected survival odds? Done. Want to overlay the minimap? No problem. Just want to enjoy a cinematic angle? Toggle the whole thing off, kick back and enjoy the view. On top of all this, you can even outline characters, making it easier to see them across the map.


Yes, a DaisyCam. You’re welcome. Provided a player has selected Maggie, you can follow everyone’s favorite trapjaw, Daisy.
