If you’re looking forward to playing Evolve, but perhaps don’t want to actually play the game to level up or want to put in some extra work on your commute, Turtle Rock Studios has some good news for you.
Its latest offering is a free-to-play tie-in app in the form of a match-3 game called Hunter’s Quest. This companion app enables players to level up their characters and unlock in-game items without sitting at their PC or console.
Hunter’s Quest is available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices. It tasks players with matching three or more icons of the same type. Doing so will unleash attacks, which result in the monster being taken down.
Winning matches rewards you with Mastery Points, which you can then turn into Mastery Boosts within Evolve. 2K said that you can unlock Markov's Lightning Gun Mastery Boost via Hunters Quest. “The next time you fire up Evolve, the game will read the Mastery Boost unlock and will increase your Mastery progression by close to 50 percent of its total amount.”
Hunter’s Quest is free-to-play. But of course, if you want to spend even less time levelling up, you can purchase in-game credits that will help you level up faster.
