Evolve’s “Big Alpha” is coming Halloween Weekend


2K and Turtle Rock Studios today announced that the “Big Alpha” test for the award-winning 4v1 multiplayer shooter, Evolve™, will be available worldwide* first on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, for 24 hours beginning October 30 through November 2, 2014.

Additionally, as a thank you to Evolve’s biggest fans, those who have already pre-ordered Evolve from participating retailers***, and those who pre-order in the coming weeks, will be guaranteed access to the alpha test on their chosen platform.

“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.”
