Today 2K revealed an upcoming, new variation of its Hunter character. His name is Electro Griffin and he's all about zapping any beasties that comes across his path with his submachine gun and electrified harpoon.

You can watch Griffin in action in this trailer:

Electro Griffin switches up some of the abilities, giving them a new jolt of power. Here's what he's bringing into battle:

  • The Laser Storm – Infused with electro neuron dampening plasma, this SMG will slow the movement of anything it touches;
  • The Final Lockdown – Bursting with sonic disrupter energy; this harpoon gun will damage and restrain the movement of its targets.
  • The Electro Suit – Allows the use of Electro Griffin’s full movement speed while firing for unprecedented combat mobility. 

Evolve recently became free (on PC) and boasts a number of significant changes since its first iteration. You can read about what's new here.

We'll update once we have more information, including Electro Griffin's silver key cost. Evolve Stage 2 is completely free on Steam right now with no monetization. Founders get all hunter and monster adaptations without having to spend in-game currency.

Update: Electro Griffin is live now. Founders can start playing as him. Everyone else can unlock him for 8,000 silver keys.
