Perhaps taking a cue from the likes of CD Projekt Red’s approach to dishing out free additional content, yet more good news comes from the developers of Evolve. The four person cooperative game is also slated to receive some new additions, for the best price ever (gratis).

More specifically, the developers have announced that Arena Mode is coming to Evolve, as a free update. In Arena Mode, players head straight into an epic fight as one Monster battles a team of four Hunters in intense, best-of-three matches set in fixed arenas.

“Arena Mode adds a completely new way to play Evolve by bringing players straight into frenetic, heart-pounding battles,” said Chris Ashton, co-founder and design director at Turtle Rock Studios. “Our goal is to provide players with the most entertaining gameplay experience possible, and Arena Mode provides nonstop combat for those who want nothing but action.”

Elaborating the developers explained that in Arena Mode, five fixed arenas are placed on 14 of Evolve’s maps for a total of 70 locations to brawl. A Stage 2 Monster player spawns into an arena against a team of four Hunters, and the two sides immediately battle to the death. The round ends when the Monster or the team of Hunters is eliminated, and the next round takes place in a new fixed arena on the same map. The first side to win two rounds is victorious in the best-of-three Arena Mode match.
