Evolve’s dedicated servers will be shutting down

Sadly Evolve’s dedicated servers will be shutting down on September 3, 2018. This means Stage 2 (the free-to-play version) comes to an end, however you are still able to play the legacy version of the game. So this means that several game features will no longer be available.

Stage 2 will also no longer be available on PC. But players will get plenty of opportunities to spend their in-game and virtual currency before the store is removed.

Peer-to-peer multiplayer will still be available in Legacy Evolve on PC and console. Players will keep all purchased DLC content, such as Hunters, Monsters, and skins.

I really liked the concept of Evolve, however, I didn’t play it that much. I did create a bunch of wallpapers for this game, with the first being my overall favorite.

Here’s a timeline of the planned server shutdown

  • July 2, 2018: Virtual currency bundles removed from Evolve Stage 2 and will no longer be available for purchase
  • September 3, 2018: Dedicated servers shut down, Evolve Stage 2 no longer available, in-game store no longer available


Can I still play Evolve?

  • Yes, if you purchased Evolve, you’ll be able to access Legacy Evolve after the dedicated servers are shut down. The free-to-play PC version, Evolve Stage 2, will not be available. See below for details on how to access Legacy Evolve.

What about my Gold and Silver Keys?

  • Evolve Stage 2’s Gold Keys will be available to purchase via the in-game store until July 2, 2018. Gold and Silver Keys can be used to purchase Monsters, Hunters, and skins until September 3, 2018, when the dedicated servers are shut down and the in-game store becomes unavailable. Players will keep all purchased Monsters, Hunters, and skins, which can be accessed through the retail version of Evolve, AKA Legacy Evolve.

What will happen to the content I paid for?

  • Players will keep all purchased Monsters, Hunters, and skins after the server shutdown on September 3, 2018. Be sure to spend your in-game currency as the store closes along with the servers on September 3. All content can be accessed through Legacy Evolve, which is the original retail version of Evolve.
