Battlefield Hardline: Here Are Some Ridiculous PS4 and PC Beta Stats

You grabbed $9 trillion in loot money and destroyed close to 13 million cars.

Electronic Arts today released an infographic featuring some ridiculous statistics pulled from the recently concluded Battlefield Hardline beta, which was held only on PlayStation 4 and PC. Below are the facts pulled from the infographic, which you can see in full (below) and on the Battlefield Blog.

  • $9 trillion loot money grabbed in Bloodmoney mode, which is 8X the total amount of US currency currently in circulation.
  • 12,885,710 vehicles destroyed, which comes out to around $374 trillion worth of damage based on average price of a new car in 2013.
  • 1,651,075 Heist break-ins initiated.
  • 50 percent break-in success rate.
  • 332,091 Police interrogations.

Battlefield Hardline launches October 21 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PS4, and PC. Ahead of release, another beta for the game will be offered on all platforms, though it's not clear when it will begin.

Unlike last year's Battlefield game, Battlefield 4, this year's Battlefield Hardline is in development at Dead Space creator Visceral Games. Battlefield 4 developer DICE is currently working on the next Mirror's Edge game, a new Star Wars: Battlefront title, and probably Battlefield 5.

Responding to critics who say that this year's Battlefield Hardline looks too iterative, lead multiplayer designer Thad Sesser recently explained the improvements, tweaks, and additions the studio has made to the Battlefield 4 formula, which makes Battlefield Hardline more than just an expansion.

Seems like stuff about this game (and the upcoming Call of Duty) has dropped off the radar, nobody is talking about it anymore.  I bet Hardline will be a quick seller and then be forgotten in a few months just like Titanfall (ironically also published by EA).


On both PC and PS4, people are looking forward to more quality games than this- Destiny is by far the most anticipated, and games like The Last of Us, The Order: 1866, etc.

to me the funniest BF ever was BF:BC2... we had real destruction, all the buldings could go down, was fast paced, good maps, good content... after BF3... it is just like EA is making DICE make a prettier COD with planes and tanks... so sad... please just give us the good maps and real destruction back!!!

and this BF:hardline... is just a DLC... like it was the BF:vietnam... u cant call it a new game and charge us 60 bucks for it... just my opinion though

I might buy it when it drops to like.. $30-40. I mean I had fun while playing the beta, but I'm not going to pay full retail price for it because I already own BF4.

To me if you think hardline is complete trash and boring you just not a battlefield fan and probably think 3 and 4 complete trash. I always wanted a decent cops vs criminals game. If you from Chicago New York or LA you know a battlefield is more than overseas. At less wait to it's out of beta and bash it. It's like 3 months until release lol

They should also have a gang war mode with criminals vs criminals

It's a full priced piece of DLC based on a premise that really doesn't fit well with the series, and yet according to these stats, EVERYONE is buying into it!!! I swear innovation in pretty much every genre will be completely dead someday if this kind of BS carries on!!!

i got the details completely different than this one,,,, You Got Battlefield  http://gn2day.com ,,, its outclass, amazing story line

To put it plainly, unless the story is mind boggling good, this game is simply not worth the price. Why not call it Battlefield 4: Hardline, release it as an expansion pack, charge $20-$30... Then MAYBE.... The beta was boring and felt no different from BF4 with new game modes. {quickly exits before imminent COD comparison}

I'm not buying this either way. I have not put enough time into just the 3rd and 4th to justify moving on. Besides, this just looks dumb.

This game is going to flop just like Medal of Honor and MoH Warfighter.

Here's another number: Zero. It's the amount of fvcks I give XD

$60 DLC. That's the only number i see, EA.

Played the Beta--wasn't the slightest bit impressed, and I thought the E3 trailer was great! 

It honestly felt like a mod/DLC. At no point, whilst playing, was I ever able to find the justification for a full price.

Here's an impressive fact. People are going to pay full price (probably more than full price) for this PoS mod.

Now that certainly is an impressive lack of intelligence among the future buyers.

As a player who stuck with BF2 for a long time, I really feel alienated by the current state of the franchise. I literally have no idea if I'd like it or not. Where does a player like me go? CS:GO? Is MAG still around?

I like the 50% success rate. Means the balance is really good.

So is this like Payday except the cops are players too?

@TeknoBug  Speak for yourself, I don't care about any of those games you mentioned, it's all about Beyond Earth and Star Citizen.........................maybe The Last of Us lol.

@orangesonic The way i see it is that Vietnam was only four maps for $15 which is the same price that every BF3 and BF4 dlc was.  So if it has 16 maps for $60 than it is just a big dlc.  But you also have to account for the fact that it probably will have a new singleplayer as well which no previous dlc had.

@losstoney Don't forget that awesome futuristic call of duty game...what was it called? oh yea Titanfall, no wait thats EA as well

@ali_2k7 u mean a remake of a remake of a remake of a remake and so on since they were all just remakes of the first one

@pnova I think every game after the first game is trash because each of those games are just dlcs and offer nothing different gameplay wise.  I think is stupid that we are forced to pay 60 a year for games that have barely changed at all.

@Whiskey3romeo Personally i loved the stories of both of those games and loved the multiplayer of warfighter.  It's a shame that people are too sutpid to realize what good games are anymore.  Now they just buy the new cod or ac think its way different when it really isnt.

@Jawehawk-DK All I know is that I am certainly not wasting my money. I have 3 and 4 to get further into anyway.

@Jawehawk-DK Who cares what other people do with THERE money? If they enjoy playing Battlefield enough to justify paying for it what does it matter? It's no worse that people spending money on skins in LoL. At the end of the day what people do with there OWN money is up to them and to hell with what other's think because after all it is just an opinion and has absolutely no bearing on intelligence...

@Keitha313 They're having a bit of trouble making their mind up right now. One moment they're offering exclusive DLC to Xbox One and the next they're having a beta that's only on PS4 and PC. I guess EA goes to the most successful systems for this sort of thing.

@AuronAXE There are no games like the old BF2 days. Trust me, I played that game all the time. It was commander in every game after launch (i played alot). There is nothing that has the same feel. BF4 will just make you sad, commander mode is terrible, and it feels like CoD with vehicles, granted its better than CoD, but seriously... best shooter out there is probably still bad company 2.

@AuronAXE Go try BF:BC2, then you'll see why people keep asking for BF:BC3. Makes no sense that they made a series that had both a great single player campaign and a wonderful MP mode. Then BF3 came along and literally *** all over the formula, losing the total soul of what made the BF game line fantastic. Now All EA is doing is trying to battle COD every year instead of actually making something for the fans.

@AuronAXE Im generally addicted to CS:GO. its awesome, play competitive mode, 5 vs 5, its epic.

@CruorComa No in payday you atively try to use live hostages as cover, in this game you obliterate the city "Man of Steel" style and who cares about the innocent casualties........whether your a cop or not.


Seriously if cops and robbers treated the population like this game does, all the residents of the city would put both sides down to bring peace back to the city.


Such a stupid premise for a game.

@CruorComa  Nope. This has nothing to do with Payday, it's just a BF4 reskin.

Eza08

@Adema83 @Jawehawk-DK Right because a $60 dollar reskin makes sense. I agree that people can do what the hell they want with their money but these people are supporting practices which should not be supported.  From the start when I saw the trailer I could already tell it was simply a Battlefield search and destroy  mode with cop and robber re skins. Does that justify $60 dollars?


If people continue doing this not only will the quality of gaming go down in general everything will be priced out for the average gamer ( to be fair It is already is), because people will keep eating that shit up. Companies need to make  profits  but when they charge $60 for a DLC reskin you know they are having  to somehow support that bloating marketing department and execs super car.

@spartanx169x @DomZeal You are aware that people hack the hell out of Xbox360s too right? Dark Souls is flooded with hackers. All you need to do is plug a darn flash drive from your PC and upload the crap to your stupid xbox. Microsoft lets in the cheaters.

@ESB Honestly I'd say this is to do with PayDay as EA has seen how successful and popular that game has become and wants a slice of that pie, only here the hostages are non-existent and EA has said "Hell No! We've got to cash in!" when asked about making Hardline a DLC pack for BF4.
