The lights are on
If you registered for the Evolve alpha way back at the start of July, now would be a great time to check your email. 2K Games and Turtle Rock have sent out the invitations, and the test begins soon.
This first alpha test takes place on PC, with more to come in the future. Turtle Rock says that Xbox One has been selected for console testing as we near the game’s release. In other words, don’t fret if you didn’t get selected this time.
The first test runs this weekend, beginning at 9 a.m. Pacific on Friday, August 1, and ending on Sunday, August 3 at 8 p.m. Pacific. (Correction: There is an NDA for content of the Alpha test. We aren't breaking any rules telling you it's happening, but won't be able to cover the content. We apologize for the earlier error.)

Our TakeEvolve was our pick for E3 2014 Game of Show, and I’m eager to get back into it for the first time since PAX East (I missed it in Los Angeles). If you’ll be playing, look for the giant monster who is very easy to kill. That’s me.
