Evolve January beta details
Xbox One to host Open Beta, closed tests on other platforms
2K Games has announced that starting January 15th, Xbox Live Gold members can join the Evolve Open Beta on Xbox One.
During the Xbox One Open Beta, fans can play Evolve’s “Hunt” game mode with access to the first two monsters (Goliath and Kraken) and first eight hunters (Markov, Maggie, Val, Hank, Hyde, Griffin, Lazarus, and Bucket) across all 12 maps that support “Hunt” and are included at the time of launch.
Then starting on January 17th players can get their hands on “Evacuation” for the first time. “Evacuation” is Evolve’s dynamic campaign that combines the full array of maps and modes in a unique experience that is different every time you play.
Additionally, any Hunter and Monster characters you unlock while playing the Xbox One Open Beta will carry over when the game launches.
Starting January 16th, there will be a smaller closed technical test on PC. If you were invited to the Big Alpha on PC, you will have access to these closed technical tests as well. And if you already own Left 4 Dead or BioShock Infinite in your Steam library you can participate in the closed technical test, which is limited in scope and will not include Evacuation or have Hunter and Monster unlocks carry over to Evolve’s launch.
Similarly, starting January 17th a small test will be held for PS4 users. Were you invited to the Big Alpha? If so, check your email, and you can participate in the closed technical test, which is limited in scope and will not include Evacuation or have Hunter and Monster unlocks carry over to Evolve’s launch. You will need a PlayStation Plus membership to play.
Evolve is set to launch in February 2015 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
