Visceral has provided an update to European PlayStation 3 users, telling users to “Go to Psn store. Go to the games category go to ‘new this week’ & if you scroll down a bit it’s there.”
The Battlefield Hardline Beta is expected to go live on PS4 and PS3 in North America this afternoon / evening after the store update.
Reports are coming that the Battlefield Hardline Beta is now live for Origin users.
Players on Xbox One are now connecting to game servers and are able to play. (Thanks, MrJon92.)
It appears that the Battlefield Hardline Beta is now also pre-loadable on Xbox One, a 10.75 GB download. We found it by searching “Battlefield Hardline Beta” in the Xbox One Store. It appears to be playable, though we’re not certain if players can currently connect to servers.
Suit up, gear up, and get ready to hit the Battlefield running tomorrow morning with the official launch of the Battlefield Hardline multiplayer open beta.
As developer Visceral Games announced earlier last week, the multiplayer beta for their cops vs. criminals shooter begins tomorrow, February 3 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, ending five days later on February 8.
Players will get to take three maps and three game modes for a spin, including Downtown, Back Job, and Dust Bowl with modes like 64-player Conquest, Hotwire, and Heist. There’s even the new Hacker mode to try out.
As per the FAQ, pre-loading on Origin begins 10 AM Pacific today. Expect a 10-11 GB download on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and a 4 GB download on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for those downloading tomorrow morning.
If you’re itching to play and finding the wait a tad unbearable, take the opportunity to watch the round-up of beta gameplay video from a handful of your favorite Battlefield commentators who got some early hands-on time with tomorrow’s beta. We’ll be adding to the list as more pop up.
