Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
It’s time to take cops and robbers to a whole new level.
Yesterday Visceral Games, developers of the upcoming Battlefield Hardline, announced not only would there be an Open Beta, they gave us a date. Starting February 3rd and lasting for six days, you’ll be able to experience the new game in it’s almost completed state. There will be no level cap for the trial, which means if you make it to Level 30, you can just keep going. Visceral also announced the file size for the game as well, at 10-11 GB for current-gen systems and PC, and about 4 GB for last-gen.
Unfortunately, any progression you make will not carry over to the retail release, aside from of course any map layouts and weapon preferences you experience. This seems like a fair compromise, as Open Beta players would already have an advantage in getting comfortable with the gameplay updates.
With this month’s Open Beta for Evolve, it seems publishers and developers are starting to test out server problems before their games go on sale, which is a great idea considering the problems that Halo: Master Chief Collection and Assassin’s Creed Unity had with their launches.
Battlefield Hardline arrives on store shelves on March 17 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and Playstation 3.
