It appears that whatever issues were causing the Evolve Alpha to not run on the PS4, thanks to firmware 2.0, have been resolved. 2K are sending out emails to those registered for the game’s alpha on the console confirming it is now live, and furthermore has been extended until Tuesday. If you’ve already downloaded the client then all you’ll need to install is the patch that has been released. Obviously if you haven’t downloaded the client then you’ll receive both once you do.
We’re happy to announce that Evolve Big Alpha is now available to play on PlayStation 4. We appreciate your patience while we worked to overcome difficulties caused by the recent PS4 firmware upgrade. Now it’s time to hunt! As a Goliath-sized ‘thank you’ for being so patient, we’re extending Evolve Big Alpha until Tuesday, November 4th at 12PM Pacific Time (That’s 8PM UTC/GMT on Tuesday, November 4th).
As it is an alpha expect to run into bugs, and there still may be the case that not everything has been resolved. 2K will continue to provide updates if more trouble arrives.
