"Look, I'm sure we can just talk it out"

It seems that Alpha and Beta tests are all the rage these days. Destiny arguably mastered this technique, with countless players pre-ordering the title in order to get a taste of its extra-terrestrial escapades. In truth, we reckon this is pretty good idea, as it allows any potential online functionality problems to be hashed out before launch. Indeed, we can think of a few recent games that might have benefited from such a test.

Luckily, 4-on-1 competitive shooter Evolve will be using this very tactic, with the title receiving a 'Big Alpha' on PlayStation 4 from 31st October until 2nd November. If you want to get in on this madcap multiplayer mayhem, you can guarantee a place by pre-ordering the game, or otherwise following the directions on your region specific PlayStation Blog post. Unfortunately, if you live in one of the countries listed through here, you won't be able to take part.
