Evolve developer Turtle Rock has just announced another new playable character from its upcoming game: Abe the Trapper. Like the other Trappers, Abe can create a large dome that holds the monster inside, forcing it to battle the hunters, but that is where the similarities end.

According to Turtle Rock, Abe is the most complex of the game's 12 playable hunters, wielding a custom-shotgun, tracking darts, and stasis grenades. Abe's custom-shotgun is less accurate the faster you fire it, so taking slow shots will allow you to hit far away targets, while a burst of shots will be powerful at close ranges.

His darts can be fired at the beast for easy tracking, or you can attach it to a random animal and hope the monster eats it, causing the dart to activate in its stomach. His stasis grenades slow the monster until it can escape their area of effect, but since he can deploy five grenades at once it will be hard to escape their clutches. 

Abe is just one of 12 playable characters that will ship in the final game. To learn more about the game, and about the other playable characters, check out our recent previews. Also be sure to check out our cover hub by clicking the banner below.
