For the avid Battlefield fans out there, you're definitely keeping an eye out on the newest Battlefield game, Battlefield Hardline. The newest installment to the Battlefield series has definitely been getting the attention it deserves. With new modes, weapons and almost an entire new feel to the Battlefield play style. On top of that, we're also going to be seeing quicker and more innovative ways to get straight into the action while playing Battlefield: Hardline. The best part is that you won't have to wait until the game official launches on March 17th, 2015!
On February 3rd, 2015, Battlefield Hardline will be opening its beta doors once again. Anyone on PC (Origin), PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 can jump right into the second beta. The open beta will run from February 3rd until February 8th; the following Saturday. The most important thing to keep in mind about the second open beta is that it will be introducing two new modes to the game. These modes are called "Hotwire" and "Heist".
"Hotwire" mode is a fast-paced game mode where the criminals will attempt to steal marked cars from a list provided to them, while the cops obviously try to take the cars back or prevent them from being stolen all together. "Hotwire" will be playable on two of the maps included in the beta; "Downtown" and "Dust bowl". As for "Heist" mode, you'll be playing on the Bank Job map. Like the game mode name and map name suggest, the criminals will be attempting to rob a bank vault but have to do so with the cops on their tail. Along with these two game modes, you'll also be able to play "Conquest" on "Dust Bowl".
Last but not least, "Hacker Mode" is being added to all modes inside of the beta. The Battlefield: Hardline website states that players in "Hacker Mode" will be able to take surveillance to the "next level as Hackers can take control over security cameras, spot enemies and specify areas on the Battlefield for their team to attack or defend." Seems pretty useful, and interesting.
You can grab the Battlefield: Hardline beta on 2/3/2015. It will be roughly 11GB's on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, while only 4GB's on PS3 and Xbox 360. Players who are coming from Battlefield 4 will also be rewarded with an in-game dog tag when the next patch is available.
How many of you guys are going to be taking part in the beta? It seems like a lot of fun, and I'm sure the full game will be extravagant. For more information about Battlefield: Hardline you can visit their site here. I'd also like to thank Vino for suggesting the topic.
