Publisher 2K is certainly pulling out the stops for this new IP. They’ve just announced Evolve: Hunters Quest – a free-to-play, match-3 companion app that will allow you to speed up your character progression in the main game. So instead of playing the main game (which we can vouch is a ton of fun) to level up your character, you can play a match-3 game and wait for your app profile to sync with your Evolve profile on your PC or console.
Evolve: Hunters Quest looks like it plays similarly to Puzzle Quest, with an overworld game featuring enemy encounters, which play out on a match-3 grid. Clearing the grid will allow you to unleash attacks on your opponent. When you win a battle you earn a currency called Mastery Points, which can then be converted into Mastery Boosts in the main Evolve game.
