Demos

The much-advertised Battlefield Hardline beta has opened. Xbox One players must download the beta through their console, although Xbox 360 players can trigger the download through Xbox.com.

Battlefield Hardline (Xbox 360)
Size: 3.12 GB
Only available until February 8th, 2015
Download here
Get a piece of the action in the Battlefield™ Hardline Beta. Experience 2 of the new “Cops and Criminals” oriented modes with Heist and Hotwire or jump in a classic match of Battlefield Conquest in 26-player thrilling battles. • Heist is all about pulling off that big job or that perfect score. The criminals are trying to break into a vault, and the cops must stop them. • In Hotwire, the criminals are trying to steal a list of marked cars while the cops are trying to repossess them. Use your driving skills to catch up with the enemy, and bring a friend riding shotgun to take them down. • A Battlefield staple, Conquest is based on the idea of controlling a base. Capture a base by standing near a control point on foot, in a vehicle or in the skies. The first team to run out of tickets loses.
