EA wants to take Battlefield to new worlds: the streets, in a classic battle between cops and crooks. Battlefield Hardline melds TV crime drama with a multiplayer experience that combines 32 players, strategy and good ol' fashioned destruction.
Naturally multiplayer will be between law enforcement and criminal elements as both forces battle across cityscapes to achieve objectives likes heists. Good gravy are you gonna need to hoof it through the city on foot, in cars, and in helicopters as you take to land, sea and air.
And it's happening sooner than you think. The Battlefield Hardline closed beta has launched right now, and PC and PS4 owners can sign up for it... like right now. Seriously try and get to it if you want it, it's first come first served! Battlefield Hardline remains on track for a October 21st launch.
Edit: Beta sign-ups are a go! Hit the official site and good luck!
