Hot on the heels of my EB Expo Preview with Turtle Rock’s new shooter Evolve, it felt only mere days between stints going from the EB Expo to the Big Evolve Alpha. My platform of preference the PS4 suffered astronomical disasters, with the release of firmware update 2.00 unable to cope with the game itself.
A few days later and a hefty patch finally saw me back on the monsters tracks. I only had the chance to experience 3 matches within an hour time frame but I feel that it was enough to solidify my feelings.
I played only as the trapper class after selecting a “no preference” to player option. I found this to be odd but undoubtedly just the kind of kink these Alphas iron out. At the beginning of my first match I was given a brief tutorial on my role and how best to achieve my assigned tasks. No doubt an invaluable tool for people going into this game without having conducted any prior research.
