Evade Roblox - what is it, how to play, and more

Forget Piggy and Rainbow Friends, Evade is the Roblox experience you really need if you’re looking for something scary to dig your teeth in

Out of all the platform’s freakiest offerings, the Evade Roblox experience has to be one of the most frightening. Taking influence from the infamous Nextbot Chase from Garry’s Mod, this title puts you up against a wealth of terrifying PNG enemies based on popular memes, from the Rock with his eyebrows raised to Quahog’s own Family Guy Peter Griffin. Still, lots of players don’t know about this free-to-play title, so we’ve put together this Evade Roblox guide to get you in the game.

What is Evade?

The Evade Roblox experience is one of the many on the platform that lends its main mechanic from another game, much in the same way that Rainbow Friends is a not-too-subtle nod to FNAF. Still, the game in question here is much more obscure, with Evade taking its premise from the Nextbot Chase game mode made in Garry’s Mod and combining it with classic locations like the Backrooms or the original Quake maps.

Roblox Evade Nextbots

There’s plenty of recognisable Roblox Evade Nextbots across the roster of in-game antagonists, including SpongeBob SquarePants, The Rock, Peter Griffin, and Master Chief but to name a few. We’re not including a full list here as there’s some questionable Evade Nextbots currently waiting to be removed as part of the next update, as well as some that are a bit dicey in terms of copyright, but be safe in the knowledge that there’s plenty of menacing enemies in this game.
