Evolve Stage 2 has been a great success reaching over 2 million players with their effort on going free-2-play. But like other F2P games, they need to create a self-sustaining platform in order to keep things going.
This is why Turtle Rock Studios is adding Golden Keys to Evolve Stage 2. This is a paid currency that enables you to quickly unlock what they want without requiring Silver Keys.
The Gold Keys will go live on September 27 in the United States other countries will be added once 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios are happy with their economic system.
Like everything else related to Stage 2, Gold Keys are a first for us and we need to make sure we’re not “drinking from a firehose”Chris & Phil-Turtle Rock Studios Co-Founders

Just like with everything else related to Stage 2, Gold Keys are a first for us and our publisher. We, therefore, need to make sure we can be as responsive with any issues related to Gold Keys as we have been on the rest of Stage 2. By releasing just in the United States, we can make sure that we’re not “drinking from a firehose” but at the same time, we’ll be able to prove that Stage 2 is a good business.
Yes. Once 2K is assured that everything is handled, we’ll roll out Gold Keys into other territories.
No, Gold Keys do not expire.
