Participate in Evolve’s Hunt for Gold Weekend to Get Golden Monster Skins

By   /   Mar 5, 2015

There’s an Evolve ‘Hunt of Gold Weekend’ planned this week and is the first in a series of upcoming online community challenges.

Participants of this week’s event will receive a special golden skin for Goliath, Kraken, and Wraith. According to Turtle Rock Studios, these skins have never been made available to anyone outside of the development team. Hence, it’s a special catch for Evolve players.

Simply log-in and play while the event lasts from today, through to March 8, 9:00 PM PST. You’ll also have the chance to play alongside the developers during this time.

The first community event is fairly straight forward and all players have to do to get the rewards is play. However, future challenges will require the community to “collectively achieve specific in-game milestones” to earn rewards.

Similar to Battlefield 4’s community events where players were required to destroy a specific amount of vehicles or buildings, you can expect something along the same lines for Evolve.

Evolve has been heavily criticized for its add-on content. For a AAA game that was released for the full $60 price tag, it features a ton of cosmetics and other content locked behind a pay wall. Not to mention most of these cosmetics are half-hearted efforts. A blue version of a weapon for example can cost you an additional $2.
