Evolve Big Alpha Underway

A tweet from Evolve announces the Windows version of the Evolve "big alpha" is now live on Steam, saying: "PC / Steam users - Evolve #BigAlpha is now open! Feel free to stream, tweet and screenshot your game." Turtle Rock follows this with another tweet offering a tip for invitees having trouble with this. This update has further details for participants as well as a code that should still permit entrance into the alpha. Here's a refresher on this asymmetric shooter:
In a savage world of man vs nature, are you the hunter or the hunted? The creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, bring you Evolve, the next-generation of multiplayer shooters where four hunters face-off against a single, player-controlled monster. Stalk your prey, execute your attack and prove you are the apex predator in adrenaline-pumping 4V1 matches.

You change over time in response to your environment, specifically what and how much you eat.

Does what your monster eat actually matter? I was hunting for details about that on the Wiki and all I found mention of was that you choose abilities to unlock as your monster levels up and different creatures were just worth different amounts of monster XP.

Haven't had a chance to play a monster yet. Maybe later tonight.

Some of the tougher creatures can drop power ups that you can use.
I thought those power-ups were only for hunters.

Only in the sense of different creatures different amounts of XP. It would be better if the type of creatures you ate had an effect, like xenomorphs in the alien series. Their hosts DNA has effect on their form and behavior and abilities. But sadly that does not seem it's going to be the case for Evolve.

will be starting a high quality stream (60 FPS) in an hour or so.

twitch.tv/boomyak

i played the first alpha, it's fun, but just like L4D it tires out after a few hours. for me it's a solid $30 game. i'll probably wait for a sale.

Disagree with yoaur reasoning but not your conclusion. You change over time in response to your environment, specifically what and how much you eat. Of course it takes place on a tiny timescale so Embiggen is not bad.

Also the "monster" in this game are the hunters. They are the aggressors. Why can't they just leave the creature alone? The creature is the victim here. The creature is just defending itself against their unprovoked aggression.

I played the original alpha a few months ago and had some fun. I probably won't buy it at release unless I get a steep discount. $60 for a mp only title is a bit much imo.

I'll try it again this weekend and see how it has improved. My initial thoughts were that it was fun but would probably get a little boring after a short while.

If you were in the first alpha test all you need to do to play this is reinstall the game.

Attempted to give this a try just now, and it just sat there searching for a game. So, I let it run, and was messing around on my phone for a while. After some time, not sure how long, but at least a few minutes, a window popped up saying that I've been kicked for being idle too long.
How can I be kicked from a game I was never able to join?
Had flashbacks of trying to play an Assassin's Creed game online.

Derivative as an adjective does not imply that which derives. Stop messing with my joke.

Watched for a while on Twitch last night. For a game called "evolve", it sure is derivative.

Not necessarily disagreeing with your intended sentiment... but isn't evolution by its very nature derivative?

That being said... "Evolve" is probably a bad name for the game as the monster doesn't evolve in response to stimuli in his environment so much as he just gets more deadly and bigger.

The game should of been called "Embiggen".

Haven't messed around with it much yet, but to answer a few of your questions... The Alpha is multiplayer only, but there are bots. The bots are mainly used when someone disconnects or a player wants to go AFK.
