If you’ve heard so much about Evolve that you just want to get around to playing the game already, and you’ve been waiting for the alpha to just go live, then you’re in luck- the Evolve Big Alpha is finally going live worldwide on October 30 on Xbox One, although it will also be made available on PS4 and PC in a limited capacity 24 hours later.
“The incredible reactions from early Evolve players have exceeded our highest expectations, but we still have a lot of hard work ahead of us in the coming months,” said Chris Ashton, co-founder and design director at Turtle Rock Studios. “We need to stress test the servers and the matchmaking system, look at balance, unlock rates, etc. The alpha test is not fully representative of the final product, but it’s our chance to see what the game looks like in the real world, and we will test again in the open beta for Evolve exclusively for Xbox One in January 2015. The data gathered in the tests will help make Evolve the best that it can possibly be when it launches on February 10, 2015.”
To sign up for the alpha, visit the game’s official website, and bear in mind the alpha will conclude on November 2 on all platforms.
