Evolve Alpha has arrived, only NA residents eligible for now

Turtle Rock Studios and 2K Games have just announced that Evolve will be entering the Alpha testing phase very soon. Those who wish to participate must meet a few requirements in order to be considered eligible for testing. First off, you must be located in mainland North America. Next, you must own a PC capable of running Evolve (we’ve posted the system requirements below) and provide a working Steam account. Other requirements include the ability of supporting a large coordinated user test on the game and be willing to adhere to a non-disclosure agreement.

You will also have to complete a short survey before anything else, which can be found here. It will ask you for a password, which Turtle Rock has provided earlier via Twitter. The password is “happyhunting”. You might also find the “JoinTheHunt” Referral Code to be useful at one point. Also provided via Twitter. Last but not least, completing all of these steps does not guarantee that you will be among those selected to participate in the Evolve Alpha, you will have to wait for an email from the company in order to find out.

Turtle Rock is hoping to have the participants list ready by July 5th so time is of the essence. Also, they mention that you should “sign-up on the PC you plan on using for the test and provide details of your hardware setup in the survey.” As promised, here are Evolve’s minimum system requirements. Note that these are not official as Turtle Rock has not announced them yet, but most sources suggest that you will need something along the lines of:

  • Intel CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
  • AMD CPU: Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+
  • Nvidia GPU: GeForce 8800 GT
  • AMD GPU :Radeon HD 3870
  • RAM: 4GB
  • DirectX: 11
  • HDD Space: 30 GB

Evolve will be released on October 21st for PS4, Xbox One, and the PC.
