2K has revealed that the PS4 Alpha for Evolve is now postponed due to problems they have been having since Sony released firmware 2.0 on PS4.
Wow there goes my evening. Ugh back to 2k15 then...
Damnit Sony. Downloaded like 5 gigs out of the 12.9 and its been postponed. So utterly dissapointing.
I wouldn't be so quick to damn Sony. This is clearly a problem on TurtleRocks end. If the issue at hand is the latest firmware, why isn't their a single software compatibility issue?
Some people are so pathetic on this website, disagreeing without adding anything to the conversation. TurtleRocks statement smells like BS to me. They are only just figuring out now that it doesn't work with 2.0? They would have had access to this firmware weeks or months ago - there's no way this comes as a shock to them. My guess is that their alpha is broken on PC and PS4 and they have a convenient excuse for the PS4 version so they took it.
I am going to have to agree TurtleRocks has been looking like a group of amateurs for a awhile now. The keep pushing back release dates on all platforms and I've heard the e3 build was not to good as well.
Right. And considering they have a timed exclusive deal with MS on this title....Kinda reminds me of the PR genius behind those "leaked" exo zombie photos three days before "day zero"?????:0
your not missing out on much guys, I cant find a game still on xb1, doubt with ps4 and pc on that it would be any easier.
Lol been playing whole afternoon..
Try changing the monster to last choice. It seems to work well for me and many others on the evolve reddit. I think everyone just wants to try out the monster and that's bogging folks down.
Literally connecting to a game this very second - you need patience.
stop lying, i've been playing without an issue today and yesterday on xo
I have played 3 games in the last 15mins on xbox one! Psn is a mess it was better when it was free!
Yeah because a game not working due to it being incompatible with the ps4's new firmware is clearly a PSN issue /s
I call bs. i found a match immediately after downloading. i was actually on a twitch stream with some gamer that goes by mz vixen. i heard her talking to her streamers so i joined in on my phone. 1000+ viewers. Game was pretty lame to me though but to each their own.
Couldn't they test it when 2.0 came last Tuesday?
was looking forward to play this
Played it on Xbox One, you're really not missing much to be honest... Not a game i'll be purchasing but it was nice to try it anyway.
Mind sharing what you didn't like about it? I'm still waiting to try it.
The loading screens. They are long as hell
Just personal opinion, it got a bit boring chasing the monster and being the monster after literally 2 games. I tried the different roles, Support, Medic etc but it didn't keep my interest for long. Just generally not my type of game. It's all down to personal opinion obviously so some will love, some will hate. As '98xpresent' said, the loading screens are ridiculously long which didn't help the overall experience then again it is an Alpha so hopefully they improve it a lot for those who play the finished game.
well to you it might not be impressive but to other, like me, are having fun with the game so play the alpha everyone, sure its not perfect but it is a cool game that is a little different from all the normal FPS. I recommend it
At least, Firmware 2.00 is a mess and Sony will launch the 2.01 sooner. Thanks for the Rest in Peace Mode Sony, now i need to leave On my PS4 to Download al Advanced Warfare
Sucks for ps users waiting to play it,game is awesome and requires teamwork,hopefully, yall get to play it soon,cause ive been enjoying it on xbox
I swear the N4G community is inconsistent, this is the second post that was approved about this. http://n4g.com/news/1613334...
This is a revelation? Womp womp.
yeaah, that article was released before this one. WELP!
Sony needs cloud and i aint talking about sephiroths nemesis.
Cloud? Totally irrelevant. Cloud does nothing for game play at all. Yet at leaset.
Wtf does this have to do with gameplay? I believe he's referring to Sony's hit and miss online infrastructure. So quick to knock the cloud why so defensive
Not defensive at all mister Ninja. Thought he was referring to gameplay. Why so defensive?
Interesting. I wonder what the problem is specifically. I mean the update is generally on the software side for the hardware...
I guess it's only a server issue because it starts up fine on my PS4 but it says My2K servers are at capacity and not accepting new users at this time. Sounds like another Driveclub server fuk up.
Hmm seems like some heavy work is being done behind the scenes. Let's hope its for the better.
Sick of PSN/FW related issues, same old same old.
Add one more tick to the list of that "greatness" PS4 is still waiting for. Just let me know when they get Uncharted.
I didn't even bother to try to get the Alpha code for whatever reason this game hasn't pulled me in yet.
Blame Sony but not Turtlerock for being incompetent? You guys are pathetic. 2.0 been out and they didn't even say what the issue is just vaguely said 2.0 Other games are working just fine so what is this issue that is exclusive to your beta Turtlerock?
I read on GAF by some users that PC version also doesn't work????
This is a real shame, I mean we can see 3 pages of posts of Sony fans upset about resolution and anything that has to compare to the Xbox. But absolutely no outrage or concern when things like this is happening in their own backyard.
Things like what? A demo not working supposedly due to a system update? Who knows why its not working yet plus its an freakin' alpha. What's to get upset about? Sheesh.
Alot of people want to try this game out. ALOT of people would be mad if this happend to ANY of the consoles.
back when Nelson did the first unboxing of the Xbox one revealing that it would be including the chat set(which initially wasn't going to happen and is also much higher quality than the one that shipped with ps4), Sony fanboys just found something else to complain about by knocking on the fact that it had a power brick. Meanwhile, real issues are actually popping up on the other side of the fence and the fanboys are suddenly so understanding and playing coy any time someone calls out their hypocrisy. Please, a little less bs is all we're asking for Sony fanboys.
Who should we be mad at? You think Sony doesn't release it's FW code to developers long before they release it to the public...hint they do. Developers are alpha and beta testers for Sony, and they use feedback to fix these exact kind of problems. Also, all FW's are backwardsly compatible...go figure. Did Sony screw up or did the developer here screw up? Do you know the exact problem with the FW which is causing issues? Is that problem something on Sony's end, or is it the developer's responsibility to make sure their game works on the system? No other single game has an issue with FW2.0, so why would any rational person think that the FW is truly at fault. Maybe the developer was accessing things they weren't supposed to which the FW patched up so now their code doesn't work. I'm just saying...right now we don't know what to be concerned about, or "who's to blame".
Mmm so... a game that is yet to come have trouble with the new firm... but existing games go through it without problems (Destiny, NBA2K15,etc)... !? Well, I know nothing about networks so fine, I only hope that my file works when the Alpha is ready. EDIT: Regarding all the thing I read about the 2.0, I had absolutly no problems with it, not sure what is really happening.
what resolutions are the console versions if anyone knows?
LOL.. will that help you with an excuse?
who cares, just play that dams game. or is it that you love counting pixels mid battle?
With the game being in Alpha, I assume there are constant changes and updates being made to the game code. It's not surprising that there are a few initial problems....but at least that's what the Alpha stage is for, working out the issues. I remember the full release of BF4 on PC, it felt like an Alpha version. Instead, enjoy what we get to see of Evolve.....report our bugs and lets ensure this game is finely tuned come release day.
I can only laugh at this. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahaha
lol idk who to blame for this one. but who knows. its not like they could test 2.0 out on a grand scale when they were working on it. maybe they shouldnt have to, maybe psn is a shoddy service that's frustrating and confusing to work with maybe turtle rock is just incompetent. so many questions.
this isnt sonys fault. the xb1 alpha was screwed up all day yesterday.
It was fine for me, played over 20 matches.
you must have got there late. there was just a big circle spinning for hours, before i gave up.
That is a negative...I was played at least 5 matches before I went back to Titanfall;)
Sony needs to get on top of things. Being a college student, I do not have much time to play games (mainly only on weekends). It would be nice to get through a rough week of midterms and for once be able to play new games on the weekend (Driveclub, Evolve Alpha, ect.).
Sony is having a terrible time of it recently. Been playing the alpha on x1 since yesterday and it's a shame ps4 owners are gonna miss out on it.
I'm curious if this has to do with Shareplay? If it was seriously not working, other games would have issues too (beyond DriveClub too) and they would know. I think they just forgot to block Shareplay, and we will get a slight "update" to the game to block that and it will work fine.....
If the PC and PS4 Alpha don't work wonder why? Surely all three games were coded the same way on all three systems because of x86 PC had know update, strange one this? Edit not finding anything on the web about the PC version having issues, looks like its only PS4
We do need to put this into perspective though, its an Alpha. This is what these sort of tests are for. No need to get upset about it guys.
Ask the NBA 2K15 team for help, they should know what to do.
I have a spare xbone code for evolve beta, I'm willing to trade for a ps4 code. PM me if you're willing to trade.
LOL all the xbox fanboys going to pretend like this is a massive title lol. Check the preorder numbers this won't do a million across three platforms mark my words.
I'm not saying it's massive, but it's the first game to ever win best of show at both E3, and Gamescom.
Don't think anybody is making that claim
I've had problems with 2.0 as well, starting to feel MILDLY like Apple OS update... not that bad though...
I actually call Bs on this, I highly doubt this is the reason. Aren't developers sent new firmware updates before it hits public to test and make sure bugs aren't an issue etc?
Games fun but its not for everyone. It certainly is unique, I don't think I've played anything quite like it. More then half of the match is usually spent tracking the monster. This seemed incredibly boring the first few matches I played but once I hit a group of people who were all on mics it became a hell of a lot more fun. The actual balance between all the classes is really awesome too IMO if people start to figure out how to use them i.e. trapper holds the monster in place while support uses orbital barrage, or medic uses sniper to make weak pts while assault unloads on him. Only played with the monster for two matches but both were terrible for me. It certainly could be fun but I did not do well. Hunters kept on finding me when I was still at lvl 1 and I had to try running away like a scared little animal. Both times they got the best of me, so more practice I guess. All in all I wouldn't call this a 60$ game. I feel that the gameplay is super interesting and unique it still can't have that much lasting appeal, a few more monsters and maps isn't going to change that. I'm glad to see developers trying new things and this certainly is new but I think I'll at least wait until the price is cut in half
We received 10 Xbox One codes and have been playing since Thursday. We applied for PlayStation 4 codes too and received only one. The game has been working ok for an Alpha on the Xbox but lately (Friday afternoon) none of us could connect. Anyone else have this too? The delay between matches is very long - probably 10 minutes, and several screens before it starts. Hope the PS delay is resolved soon.
Me too, kept getting kicked from the staging screen. I was excited to play as the monster but its not that fun. All you do is run away from the hunters. I wanted to kick some ass. Hunting is fun but match making is slooooow.
Things just keep getting worse for the ps4.Plus on top of that a 1.2 billion dollar loss last quarter for the whole company
