Play the Evolve ‘Big Alpha’ on PS4 this Halloween

Give Turtle Rock’s red-hot squad shooter a test run later this month

Hunters, shooter fans, giant monsters, unite! 2K and Turtle Rock’s multiplayer shooter Evolve is getting a closed “Big Alpha” test later this month. Do you enjoy the occasional, death-defying hunt through exotic alien jungles? Or do you prefer the confidence of a lumbering giant that hurls rocks at prey? Evolve caters to both play styles!

The closed alpha test is happening on PS4 from 31st October to 2nd November. Please mark your calendars.


Evolve’s been playable at select tradeshows earlier this year, but for many of you this will be your first and best chance to see what Turtle Rock has cooking before it launches. Evolve is still months out from its release date on 10th February, so getting in now is recommended if you’re impatient. Which is totally fine.

Because this is a limited closed alpha test, you’ll need a code to register for a chance to participate. Fortunately, we have one for you below. Use before it expires and remember that you must have an active PS Plus membership to play.



Use Referral Code: PlayStation4v1

Redeem the code at:

As a thank you to those that have already pre-ordered the game, those folks are guaranteed access to the Big Alpha. Anyone who pre-orders the game between now and October 21st can also guarantee themselves access. Smart.

Please note: The countries listed here are unable to participate in the Big Alpha.

  • Thanks :) looking forward to this :)

  • Nice and now we wait :)

  • Agreed, nice one, got a bit confused with 17 digit code bit, then tried the two – that break the three sets of five digits up, accepted so hopefully all’s good, am looking to get this anyways, i meam the few times i was on my 360 were for L4D, both of them though like most, the first was my fav, Anything from you guys is on My radar.

  • Mean (meam?) ios8 is killing me, might as well add i am a plus subber, just not on this AC, in case anyone didn’t know (lol).

  • Great for people who liked the Tank battles in L4D, not good otherwise. :)

    I hated the Tank battles, but enjoyed the ‘get from point A to point B’ aspect of L4D. Maybe someday we’ll get a L4D HD remake for the PS4 (Let’s face it, it’s not like there are loads of great games on the horizon for our console – still awaiting the ‘Greatness’ guys…).

  • Thanks Ryan! Hope I get in ! BEYOND from Germany!

  • Tank battles, darn, reading that made me want to boot up L4D again, sadly i traded the 360 for a xone, mentioned it before but, twas about 10 days ago and i’m still to unbox it, getting Master Chief (thrown in with Destiny bundle etc) in Nov, not much reason to unbox till then.. as you say though, a L4D reboot/make for (both) current gen’s, fingers crossed it’s possible, although i’m not too sure how much you seen about Evolve, but it isn’t just the monster you need to kill, other ‘creatures’ are also in your/monsters way, so i’d relax about the tank only part.

  • Played this at EGX last month, TWICE! Which given the long line of almost 2 hours, just goes to show how fun the game is.
    Shame I don’t have a PS4 yet but I hope the code I was given at the show gets me in the PC Alpha soon.

  • No thx but sign me up for the real thing :p

  • Nice thanks. Not even interested in this game at all, especially with The Order 1886, Bloodborne, and The Witcher 3 all releasing in February.

  • The game looks fantastic.. But the hardcore focus on teamplay kills it for me.
    But Its nearly imposible for me to get 3-4 friends online at the the same time( because of work schedules)
    So I have to give this game a pass

  • Looks good. Too bad I do not like shooter games. Wish other action genre games would have such good graphics and bad guys to beat.

  • hey Ryan Clements I did sign up for this Alpha but on the countries listed on I couldn’t find my country “Saudi Arabia” even though it’s listed on ” The countries listed here” at the end of this topic
    so how can I select my country !?

  • Registered, thanks.

    I don’t really know much about this game so this has put it on my radar.

  • Sweet. Scrapped off my purchase list.

    According to 2k the excluded countries have ‘internet issues.’ That’s odd, I have a 40mbps DSL connection and don’t have any ‘internet issues’.

    I live in South Africa, and I’ve lived in China ( Internet speed is definitely not an issue ).

    Why not just say you aren’t providing local servers instead of blame the countries infrastructure.

    I’ll head of back to Destiny methinks.

  • I think the insistence to have one of each class will kill this game very quickly. I don’t want to spend hours levelling up my support dude only to be forced one Saturday to any a class I don’t like and either stick it out and have no fun myself or drop from the game and leave the other three with no trapper and no hope of victory, no fun for them either.

    If you are going to stick to this course then I at least hope you have implemented and actual lobby where the game doesn’t begin until all five players are ready and that communication is possible in the lobby so if someone is sat on your class you can try and negotiate. We’ve seen a lot of real lazy MP design recently, looking at you Destiny with zero built in comms and no match making on any endgame content. Only a fool refuses to learn lessons from his own mistakes but you have to out and out dumb not to learn from the mistakes of others, see Evolution and DriveClub for a good example on that one.

  • How do you redeem the code

  • This I’m looking forward to trying out just hope it doesn’t become stale as I haven’t seen much variety in the footage shown so far. What has been shown though does look solid it’s certainly looking like a fun formula.
