Details Emerge for Battlefield Hardline's Beta

By Marc Caccamise, 3 years ago
Details for Visceral's cops vs. criminals shooter, Battlefield Hardline, have been revealed. While it's not as extensive as some may have hoped, it does at least offer a glimpse at what is in store.

The open beta will be available to everyone on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and will contain two game modes on the maps Downtown and Dust Bowl. The first, called Hotwire, is described as an all-new mode that combines all-out warfare with all-out speed. The other is the traditional Conquest mode, which offers up to 64-player cops vs. criminal shootouts.

Players will also not have to worry about their progress being capped at any point. The max progression level cap will be nonexistent, allowing everyone to have the chance to unlock and try out as many gadgets and weapons as possible.

There are a couple of screenshots depicting both the Downtown and Dust Bowl maps as well:

While there is no confirmation yet on when the open beta will be available to try out, Battlefield Hardline is set to release on March 17th in North America and March 19th in Europe for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
