In addition to getting a first look at this amazing game, you'll also be helping to make Evolve the best game possible. 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 data gathered in the tests will help make Evolve the best game it can possibly be.
If you've already pre-ordered the game, you're in! You'll be receiving an access code from our retail partners where you pre-ordered the game.*** Make sure to use the retailer code for guaranteed access.
For those of you who haven't pre-ordered, now is your chance. In addition to access to the Big Alpha, everyone who pre-orders will also receive the Monster Expansion Pack, which includes the fourth playable monster for free when it becomes available after launch, as well as the alternative Savage Goliath skin. The Monster Expansion Pack will be available to all those that pre-order Evolve before the game ships.
And hey - how about a trailer too?
