The Xbox One exclusive Evolve beta kicks off next week on January 15. While there will be plenty of content in the standalone beta, there’s the potential to get even more beta content by pre-ordering the game.
Developer Turtle Rock Studios has announced that anyone who pre-purchases the Xbox One version of Evolve before or during the beta will be able to play as the Wraith along with four other hunters; Parnell, Abe, Caira, and Cabot. Another upside to pre-purchasing is that all five of these characters will be unlocked automatically for you when the full game launches. There has been no comment if pre-purchases on PS4 and PC will unlock the five characters, or if this is an Xbox One exclusive.
2K Games announced yesterday that Evolve had gone gold, and will launch February 10 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. They also released the opening cinematic, which sets the tone of the game quite well.
