Turtle Rock Studios made a monumental announcement today confirming that Evolve will be going free to play on PC. It’s likely the PS4 and Xbox One versions are to follow sometime soon.
The free to play Evolve is available in beta form for the PC right now. Here’s more of the official announcement on Turtle Rocks’s Studios’ website.
Here’s how it’s going to work: We’re going to make Evolve free on PC as a Beta starting on July 7. This is going to allow us to hit our new server infrastructure really hard and we need your help testing. Stuff could break, and that’s our hope, because that will give us time to improve things as we go. We’ll parse out major Beta revisions, updates and features over a period of weeks and months — a plan we’re going to continually communicate here. This allows us to test new features and major changes to make our game more accessible and ever closer to the joy we saw when we first showed our baby to the world. Just as importantly, this Beta plan gives us the flexibility and time we need to keep fixing bugs and making Evolve more stable.
If you already own the game, Turtle Rock Studios promise that you will be treated with extra rewards and other gifts.
