You've been asking about it, waiting for it, and while we can't tell you everything (like when it's coming), we're dropping the first details about the Battlefield™ Hardline beta today.
First things first: It's open to everyone and on all platforms - PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360®, PS4™ and PS3™. So no matter where you roll or how you roll, you have a way to get in.
Bust out those new gadgets, form new strategies and showcase your skills on two different maps and modes. First, take a test drive of Hotwire, an all-new mode coming to Battlefield focused on combining all-out warfare with all-out speed. This is how you introduce yourself to the new flavor Visceral Games is bringing to Battlefield with Battlefield Hardline. Or you can go all-out in 64-player cops and criminals warfare in the oldie but goodie, Conquest.
While it's just a taste of the whole game, we want you to come in, take your jacket off, stay awhile. There won't be a cap on the max progression level so whether you’re busting criminals or fleeing the cops, unlock away. The beta is your shot to test the different classes, toy with different gadgets, and find your crew to take down your foes.
To be frank, we want you to play this beta to death. We need you to. This test is only going to make the game stronger, and help us take a look at ways we can ensure we deliver the most stable launch you deserve.
So keep that feedback coming and head to the Battlefield forums. We've got our ears to the ground, and we'll see you on the streets of Battlefield Hardline soon. For now, check back every Wednesday and find out more about the game.
