The PS4's new update — version 2.00 — is really screwing things up, huh? First there was the whole Rest Mode thing, and now we've got news from publisher 2K Games that they're delaying the PS4 version of the upcoming Evolve alpha.
Why? Because the PS4's new update is something of a disaster, and 2K's running into problems getting their upcoming shooter working on PS4 v2.00. Says 2K:
Following the recent PS4 2.00 firmware update, we are experiencing difficulties with the Evolve Big Alpha on PlayStation 4. As a result, the test on PlayStation 4 is postponed. PlayStation and 2K are working together on a resolution. Evolve's closed alpha test is still playable on Xbox One and PC.
Meanwhile, if you're into Evolve and want to play the alpha on Xbox One or PC, here's 2K with instructions:
PS4 players who also own an Xbox One or PC can register for Big Alpha on one of those platforms right now using the codes below, and will receive an invite today to start playing.
