Xbox One owners get the alpha test from October 30th-November 2nd, while PC and PS4 players start on October 31st.
Those interested in playing Evolve sooner rather than later will have their first chance at 4v1 this Halloween weekend.
2K and Turtle Rock are set to hold Evolve's "Big Alpha" event from October 30th through November 2nd. Xbox One players will get access to the alpha for the entire event, while the PC and PS4 contingents get started on October 31st.
Anyone who has already pre-ordered Evolve, or does so in the coming weeks will be granted access on the platform of their choice. Those who aren't in the pre-order mix will have a bit of a crap shoot on their hands; limited-use access codes for the Xbox One will be posted by 2K on Facebook, Twitter, and the Evolve blog. If you snag a code, you can register for the alpha test with the code on this page.
We're not sure if similar codes will be posted for PC and PS4 Evolve players, but we will post up as soon as that becomes clearer. In the meantime, you can watch the gameplay trailer up top, or check out a handful of PAX Prime, and Gamescom screenshots below.
Oh, and the aforementioned limited-use Big Alpha Xbox One access codes 2K will be dropping on its respective properties? There's one at the bottom of this post. Go to the above alpha registration link above, plug in the code duo, and good luck!
(Note: If you use the code, and the registration site says it's not working? Two words: Limited. Use.)
