Sign-Ups Now Available for Evolve's Alpha, the Co-Op Shooter From Left 4 Dead Devs

Turtle Rock hopes to assemble a list of testers by this Saturday.

Sign-ups are now available for an upcoming alpha test of cooperative monster-hunting shooter Evolve, developer Turtle Rock announced today.

You can visit the official Evolve site right now and fill out the registration form for your chance to play to the game prior to its launch later this year. You'll have to own a PC capable of playing the game--sorry, console owners--have a Steam account (which is free if you don't already have one), and agree not to disclose anything about your experience with the game.

You'll also need a password--"happyhunting" without the quotes--which Turtle Rock community manager Jess Damerst shared on Twitter, along with the referral code "JoinTheHunt" that you should enter during registration. Gamers interested in checking out Evolve should act fast, as Turtle Rock says it hopes to select its testers by Saturday, July 5. Dates for when the test will begin or end were not announced.

Evolve has a lot of positive buzz surrounding it, having just won the top prize from the E3 Game Critics Awards. The game pits a team of four players playing as humans against one player who assumes the role of a monster that evolves throughout the course of a match. GameSpot has taken an extensive look at the game recently as part of our Next Big Game feature.

Evolve, which publisher 2K says will be the "defining" game of the year on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, will be available on both of those consoles and PC on October 21.

The alpha isn't for PS4? I don't care then. Wake me up when the PS4 is involved.

this is just one of those games u hear about, then pick up in a years time for 3.50 in a steam sale and play 3 times before never bothering again. who cares about a beta? thats too much work just for something like this.

I'll wait for the more stable Beta in September for Xbox One.

US only, given a massive portion of the market is in EU they may want to rethink that.

Would love to play as the characters working in tandem with some friends but playing solo as the monsters looks as if could get a bit repetitive. But if I were to get a multiplayer game this fall, it would be Evolve.

"Must be located in mainland America" I'm getting fed up with this sh*t, this is infuriating.

Signed up, hoping I make it in! I know a lot of people are skeptical so I'd love to get my own taste of it. I have high hopes, but not too high. I'm fully prepared for it to be an overhyped suck-machine. Still, I'm optimistic, which is something coming from a cynic like me.

I can't figure out why, but I have zero interest in this game.  I like the L4D games and co-op in general, but something about this just seems way over the top in terms of required coordination.

Bah, I'm not playing this on the PC. They need a beta for the game consoles. I hope this game turns out good.

0 interest in this game after seeing the gameplay. Looks extremely repetitive.

"Be located in north america", damn it, that is the only one that ruled me out.

@Gankstar_VX84 we'll see. a little to early to be making assumptions like this.

@ranshinjin I did the same thing. Serves me right for trying to actually do something at 6:30 in the morning.

Then how do you know it will be good? I sign up just to see if this game is fun or not. I also sign up for Destiny Beta on PS4 and I have little faith in these games so I'm testing them out to see if they are the real deal.

Well it isn't exclusive if I get to test it out on PC already. "Beta" in name only so I don't see your point

@SphinxDemon I'm guessing console exclusive. Microsoft said "exclusive beta" at their E3 conference.
