The Evolve Big Alpha has been going on for the last three days, giving gamers a taste of what Evolve is going to play like in its final form, however if you’ve been trying to play on the PS4, you’ve so far been left high and dry due to a lack of PS4 support. Luckily, a PS4 firmware update has appeared which will finally allow you to take part along with the PC and Xbox One gamers. As a gesture of goodwill, 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios are extending the Evolve Big Alpha on all platforms until November 4th, 12PM PST, which should give even the PS4 players a decent feel of what the game is going to feel like in the future. This isn’t the first time the PS4’s firmware has caused some issues with Destiny suffering a similar fate in the days after its release.
I’ve been playing the Evolve Big Alpha on the Xbox One and for the most part I’ve been extremely impressed by its intense gameplay and the interesting dynamic created by pitting four Hunters versus one Monster. What’s not so impressive is the state of the servers and the epic loading screens which frankly make even Destiny’s loading screens seem short in duration. Still, this is an alpha, so we’re expecting to see more than a few changes before the final game is released. More thoughts to come from us in our Evolve Big Alpha impressions…
Evolve will be released on February 10th, 2015 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
