Missed the Battlefield Hardline beta? There’s another one coming soon, plus more besides

Written by: / / 4 Comments

The PC and PlayStation beta period for Battlefield: Hardline may have already come and gone (did you play?), but that doesn’t mean developer Visceral isn’t going to show off the cops ‘n robbers themed shooter again in the near future ahead of launch in October.


Posting on the Battle Blog, Visceral’s Steve Papoutsis wrote that the team is looking to gather fan feedback early and will be acting on its findings from players of the recently concluded Battlefield Hardline beta, with another multiplayer test coming to “all announced platforms” that will reveal more of the game later this year.

According to Papoutsis, the beta only showed off “a small portion of what is in store” for multiplayer fans this year, and there are “plenty of new modes in the game that really play off the cop and criminal theme,” with fan favourite modes included, too.

We can also look forward to a great range of variety in Hardline’s maps, “from subterranean grow labs to the streets of Miami, complete with all the vibe and flavour that city has to offer.”

Only Half of the Story

Papoutsis was also keen to tease us about the singleplayer campaign of Battlefield Hardline, which he equates with “what you see when watching episodes of your favourite TV shows,” but with a twist:

“As many of you know from previous Visceral games, we have a unique way of telling our stories and engrossing players in our worlds, and Hardline will be no different. We are doing some cool new things in how we present the campaign, similar to what you see when watching episodes of your favorite TV shows. It’s something different and we’re fired up about it.”

We’ll find out more about Visceral’s plans for Hardline’s campaign in July.

Battlefield Hardline is out on October 21st worldwide, across PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
