Battlefield-Hardline

If you happen to be an EA Access member then you are in for a treat as the Battlefield Hardline trial is arriving on March 12th.

Members will be able to jump into the game for a full 10 hours, playing both single-player and multiplayer before the games official release date on March 17th. The trial will let you play the prologue and first chapter of the single player and all the multiplayer maps and game modes, allowing you to experience content never seen before. However unlike the beta, all progress you make will carry over when the live release hits.

EA Access is the exclusive subscription service where you receive discounts on EA games, but also have access to the vault, a selection of the best EA games that are free to play and download.

Battlefield Hardline is available now to buy and pre-download, and will be officially released on March 17th.

The future of Battlefield 4

Battlefield-41-610x335

At the end of last year Dice recapped on what an exciting year 2014 had been for Battlefield 4 and how 2015 would again hold some surprises. Two months into the year and Dice have now revealed what they meant.

Apart from the normal continued support of the game through tweaks, patches and weapon packs there is also talk of two larger content drops. What these might include we are still unsure about, but one of these could be related to the announcement that Dice want to build a playable map with its premium community.

Yes it’s true, Dice have announced that they want to build a playable map from the ground up using the community’s feedback in every aspect of the project phase. This is something that has never been done before by Dice and could be a way of getting all their premium members back together as one big happy family.

Once completed the map will then be available to all users as a free download. Further information can be found here.

There was also news of the coming Winter Patch that is due out in March.  This patch will focus mainly on netcode, soldier collision and a tweak to the very competitive Squad Obliteration mode.

So does this spark your interest, or has Battlefield 4 run its course and you are just twiddling your thumbs before Hardline comes out?

Battlefield Hardline beta coming next week, apparently

Battlefield-Hardline

There’s been rumours circulating for a few days now that the Battlefield Hardline beta was just around the corner and it seems that the Xbox Marketplace have finally confirmed it, by accident.

A store page for the beta popped up earlier today revealing that the beta will be available to download on 3rd February 2015 and has unfortunately now been pulled down. Thankfully, VG247 managed to grab a screenshot.

This is also the same date that a EA Ronku email leaked earlier in the week, so it’s pretty believable!

What a bunch of plonkers, eh? Two leaks in one week.

Battlefield Hardline Coming To EA Access Early

Battlefield-Hardline

If you’re desperate to get your hands on the upcoming cops and robbers multiplayer shooter, now is a fantastic time to join the EA Access subscription service as it’ll be available to download digitally a few days before it’s official, physical launch.

Battlefield Hardline beta details revealed

Battlefield-Hardline

Two maps and two modes. That’s what you can expect from the upcoming open beta for Battlefield Hardline. The beta will be available to all platforms and the Visceral team will be waiting to hear your feedback, which can be left over at the Battlefield forums.

Downtown and Dust Bowl are the maps. Hotwire and Conquest are the modes. Everyone should be familiar with the classic Battlefield Conquest mode where each team has a limited number of tickets that bleed out depending on how many capture points are held – the more points you hold, the slower your tickets will expire.

Hotwire on the other hand is the new mode that’s being flaunted as the classic cops and robbers chase with the OTT Battlefield destruction thrown in for good measure.

The best news is that there’s no level cap for the beta.

While it’s just a taste of the whole game, we want you to come in, take your jacket off, stay a while. There won’t be a cap on the max progression level so whether you’re busting criminals or fleeing the cops, unlock away.

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. We’ll see you on the streets of Battlefield Hardline soon.

Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer for Battlefield Hardline

Battlefield Hardline: Hotwire Multiplayer Gameplay

battlefield_hardline_logo

Whether you’re the cops or the criminals, the goal in Battlefield Hardline’s Hotwire mode is to get to the marked cars and drive fast. This is high speed chases like you’ve never seen before on the streets of Battlefield.

Driving a marked car causes you to begin to bleed the enemy team’s tickets – so make sure you hang onto the ride and continue to drive. You’re not going to score points or bleed tickets if you’re not driving. Drive fast to fill the capture bar – now you’re helping!

Each Hotwire map has a couple of key locations that you need to learn and stake out if you want to bring down your enemies. Park your squad car across the lanes, maybe rig it with breaching charges or trip mines – and funnel the enemies into your line of fire! That will teach ‘em to come onto your turf!

Check out the trailer above for gameplay

Battlefield Hardline: 12 minutes of Singleplayer Gameplay

battlefield_hardline_logo

This 12 minute demo is shot entirely in-game and is the first look at Hardline’s new style of storytelling, inspired by the most popular crime dramas seen on television today. Narration by Ian Milham, Visceral Games creative director.

Rain havoc! The world may be modern and sexy, but like the saying goes, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. Blow open bank vaults, destroy car dealerships, shoot out an underground grow lab – whatever it takes to getaway from the cops or to make that bust.

Battlefield Hardline will be released during early 2015
