Host04 by Stephen-0akley Host04 by Stephen-0akley
Probably one of my favorite canned monsters for Evolve: The Host. Went through a lot of disturbing iterations based off the ideas originally concocted by the ever talented TJ Frame.

Awesome design so sad this one got canned. It would definitely been a memorable thing to see in action.

I wish Gorgon did something like the Host... using minions to fight. Something I really wish Gorgon did was infest wildlife and have it attack players.

Gorgon was always meant to be a trapper really, and this one the commander of minions :3 It was a pretty hard to get these sort of mechanics for this character working so it was cut all together sadly.

I also hear its difficult to create something that digs through dirt and walls, which was a bit saddening, but completely understandable.

I do, but I always try and do a little polish on them and trickle stuff out in batches. I have 4 years of work to show from evolve XD

So do you have any hints for the 5th monster, then, after Gorgon? Its been maybe... 10 months since Gorgon. It would be amazing to hear of a 5th monster.

The bipedal Host is really impressive, with those paraditic "grub-parts", it's like you would fight a naturally armored opponent and a truly devastating foe.
The reveal of the holes present on the legs and back of the creature has to make it THAT more terrifying, it's really uncanny, like the holes leaved by mangoworms.
And should we speak of the final one, it is a pue abomination (the good variety). It really takes intelligent to design a creature that grow or wraps itself around a human Thorax in order to grow, and still be mobile with feets, legs, wings... and make the arms grows thanks to the general structure of human bones as we can see an unmodified version of this "undead" Host.
Really, you would think twice before attacking them.
