Evolve beta coming January only on Xbox One

Microsoft has confirmed that the Evolve beta will arrive in January, but will only be available to Xbox One gamers.

During its GamesCom 2014 press conference, Microsoft revealed that Xbox One gamers only will be treated to Evolve beta access in January 2015.

Not only will Xbox One owners be able to get special early pre-release access to Evolve in January, Mcirosoft has also secured that they will get all premium DLC content ahead of their PS4-owning chums.

The full Evolve release date is happening on February 10, despite an original launch date being pencilled in for October 21.

Evolve will launch with a number of playable monsters, hunters, game modes and maps for gamers to get their teeth into.

It’s a rather unusual title in that it features a 4v1 game mode, where you have to control a team of hunters against a player-controller monster.

We loved it at E3 and can’t wait to see more at GamesCom 2014.
