The beta for Evolve will be coming exclusively to Xbox One in January, Microsoft announced on Tuesday during its Gamescom press conference.
It also confirmed that 'premium downloadable content' will also be released first on Xbox One.
Blending cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences as a team of four hunters face off against a single, player-controlled monster on an alien planet in the distant future, Evolve is the latest game from Turtle Rock Studios, the co-creators of Left 4 Dead.
The game will launch with multiple monsters, hunters, game modes, and more than a dozen maps.
Originally due to hit shops on October 21, the game will now release on February 10, 2015.
