The time has come. In the first week of February (Feb 3rd) the Battlefield Hardline Multiplayer beta will be dropping. For those who don’t know, Hardline is a new take on what we traditionally know as Battlefield. There will be three different modes and maps that players will be able to dig into.
“The open beta will let you try out three different multiplayer maps and modes. First off, Hotwire mode brings high-speed chases to the Battlefield, as the criminals attempt to steal a list of marked cars while the cops try to repossess them. Available on two maps in the beta, Downtown and Dust Bowl, success in Hotwire will require excellent teamwork and precision driving.
The desert town of Dust Bowl known for its drug trafficking problems will also be playable on Conquest, the fan favorite Battlefield mode, which takes the battle up to 64 players. Finally, there’s the Bank Job map where you’ll get to try out Heist mode. The criminals are trying to break into a bank vault, but the cops are doing their best to stop them. Which side of the law will you ride with?”
There will also be something called Hacker Mode. Here you can help your team similar to how Commander Mode worked in Battlefield 4. A player can take control of security systems and security cameras…..think Watchdogs.
The game will be releasing for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 17th. I can only hope that the problems that plagued Battlefield 4 don’t make their way to Hardline. I can go on forever about that one.
