E3 2014: Battlefield Hardline Beta Available To Download Now on PS4 and PC

Beta of upcoming Battlefield Hardline available to Battlefield 4 owners exclusively on PS4 and PC.

The Battlefield Hardline Beta is available to download now exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PC. Players can register for the beta over on the Battlefield Hardline website. The site notes spots are limited.

EA didn't announce how long the beta would be live for, but did promise that the game would run at a full 1080p resolution, and at 60 frames per second on PS4.

While Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS3 owners can't get in on the beta action, EA is offering users of those platforms some launch day goodies if you register on the beta site. These include a weapon camo/skin, weapon sight, additional content, and a unique dog tag.

EA recently released a trailer for Battlefield Hardline following a leak of the game. It's due for release on October 21 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

I made it into the beta!

This is just a cash grab.  It should not be considered a legitimate entry in the battlefield series.  If I want to play cops and criminals I'll pick up payday or play Rainbow Six.  I really hope this doesn't become a recurring battlefield entry.  It will be the first one since 1942 that I have not played.

History is about to repeat itself. Many players will complain about the beta. Countless others will mock such gamer on basis that is "just" a beta and all bugs and glitches will be steamed out upon release.


BF4 was a mess on Beta:

1. just a few days ago a patch was sent to consoles to greatly reduce freezing.

2.  Netcode is still a mess.

3. Rubberbanding still happens.

4. Campaign is greatly broken still


and all this 9 months after release of the final game. NINE MONTHS and this is still broken. Yet, looks like many will quickly forget history

Ps4... So I never got the email with a code but I'm downloading the game right now. Do I still need this code to play the game after it's finished downloading?

For people with PS4 and BF4, just go to BF4 at the PS home screen and highlight it. Go to Overview and to the right, there should be an option to have instant access to the beta. when i clicked it, i was instantly taken to the PSN store, clicked download and it began :D hopefully it starts working for everyone else as well.

So I claimed it on PS4 with 60 percent taken, and it said that I get instant access and I had to download it again, but PSN crashed. Now that PSN is up the Percentage counter thing is gone and I have to no clue how to download it. Any help????

How's it possible that people still have hope for EA after all the things they've done? I abandoned them years ago and I haven't regret it since.

I am downloading it now on origin. It's about 7 GB of install. As well if you want a bit of a impression video of the beta. Check out JackFrags he has a good and bad video of the game.

What a surprise, EA's sign in servers are dead and you can't do anything to get it....  I'm not buying this game, I'm done with them after BF4, but I'd check out the demo for Sharts n giggles.

@GLOK1132 Who are they trying to fool with this game? I could not believe my eyes when I hit pre-order to see what the cost of this game was (expecting to see $5-$10) and there it was, in all it's glory, $59.99 and W.T.F $69.99 for a Deluxe version!? Laughable to say the least, it's like an Xbox Live Arcade game. Remember 1943 for Xbox (360)? Yeah, no thanks.
