This information came to light after a report was released by the investors of GameStop. The report read as follows, “We are honored to announce to our investors that we have had a 24% increase in revenue compared to last year. We have been able to earn an extra $68 Million which proves that the video game market is still going strong. We owe this all to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One being released, moving forward we plan to offer special trade in promotions which will allow for us to earn and sell more used video games.”

For those of you who don’t know Gamestop doesn’t earn a lot of money when they sell a brand new video game or brand new console, they only receive a small percentage while the rest of the money earned from that console or video game is distributed to the developers, publishers, employees and more. GameStop earns the majority of their profit by selling used consoles or used video games, this is why it is so heavily important for these game shops to offer trade in promotions. It allows for them to earn more money in the long run.

Evolve is a multiplayer video game that requires five players for each match. Four people will play on a squad and use advanced technology to hunt out a beast that they must kill. The fifth player on the other hand is that beast that roams the lands of each multiplayer map. The beast can use his natural abilities of smell to hunt down to four players in a squad and then use his extremely sharp claws to kill them. It won’t be one easy swipe and it won’t take one simple bullet to take down either one of these foes. You will need to persist for a long period of time which results in either all squad mates perishing or the beast dying.

Valve made the statement saying, “Today we want to announce that Evolve will be appearing at E3 2014, we wanted to announce this in order to make fans of Left 4 Dead excited for all of the gameplay and story elements we will be showcasing at this year’s E3. I think what will impress our fans the most is the intensive visuals this game provides, these visuals also being used for the new installment in the Left 4 Dead Franchise.”
