Battlefield Hardline open beta on the horizon for all platforms

Battlefield Hardline has been a hit and miss topic of discussion among fans and haters of the Battlefield franchise. Plenty called out EA and Dice for attempting to make a whole new title to raise profits when it should just be a DLC for Battlefield 4. While I can understand some of the arguments, they really are negated by the fact that the title isn’t a war game and has a totally different story mode that isn’t even being handled by either, but by Visceral games. All of that can easily go into a whole new article, now the important bit of information is that there is an open beta close at hand that will cover all gaming platforms that the title will release for when it officially comes out March 17th.

I had a rather fun time on the first PC beta. Even though the modes and maps were limited. Similar to the last beta all the amps and modes won’t be accessible. Luckily though there two different maps to run around on and explore. More so though, there will be two modes: Hotwire and Conquest. Hotwire is one mode that I have personally been excited to check out myself. The page details say it is focused on :combining all-out warfare with all-out speed.” In a nutshell it is like Conquest where you capture the points on the map, but instead of static points they are actually a variety of vehicles that change. To capture the point you have to steal it and drive it like you stole it, which you did, and keep it above a certain speed to earn the points. Of course the opposing team will be attempting to steal it back or to just blow it up. Either way, it should turn out to be a heck of wild constant car chasing battle. Here is a little video from the man him self, jackfrags, playing the new mode.

While we know the open beta is open to everyone one ever platform, PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360®, PS4™ and PS3™, they didn’t offer up a release date for any of the platforms. The forums for the title make mention that it will be in Origins to download and install though and that there will be no need for any registration or sign-up. I’ll be keeping an eye on my Origin’s on the PC and report back when I see it make its grand entrance.

About Stormy Beach

I have been a tech nut for many years. Android has had a special place in my heart since it originally made its debut with the T-Mobile G1. Prior to that I sported a number of windows devices including the T-Mobile Wing. After I was married and we had our 3rd child, is when I really got into phones. Since then my passion for tech and has grown into somewhat of a monster. Always looking for something that I haven't seen a million times everywhere else. Always looking for things that will benefit me, my family and people long term, not just for the few short months they have a certain device. I don't claim to know everything, but one of the best parts of tech is, and always will be, learning as much as possible.
