Evolve picks up Best of Gamescom award

Turtle Rock's shooter has now won top awards at both E3 and Gamescom

Turtle Rock's Evolve has added to its awards haul from E3 with five wins at Gamescom.

Evolve, which will be published by 2K Games, won the Best of Gamescom award, the equivalent to the Best of Show trophy it picked up at E3 earlier in the summer.

It also won Best Action Game, Best Online Multiplayer, Best PC Game and Best Xbox Game. The awards were judged by a panel of experts from the games industry and the games press.

However, Gamescom has one award where the public gets to decide: the Most Wanted Consumer Award, which, this year, went to Super Smash Bros on Nintendo's Wii U console. It will be released in November.
