As soon as the Xbox Store revealed the release date, Visceral Games were down to business with all things Battlefield Hardline Beta.
Yesterday they officially confirmed the release date of February 3 with an announcement post where they also revealed that it will last for six days until it ends on February 8.
However, they have also shared a list of FAQs with the series fans who are interested in trying out what the game has to offer. While you already know the things that mattered the most, you would certainly be pleased to know that the preload feature has also been dated.
You will be able to download the Battlefield Hardline Beta on February 2 from 10AM PST onwards. As far as the PC users are concerned, they will have to hook up to Origin for the downloading.
Moving on, the developers also shared the expected size of the files so that you have made space for it before you start downloading. If you are an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC user, you will be needing between 10GB to 11GB of space on your hard drive.
The size is much smaller for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions though; only 4GB of free space will suffice.
Unlike some other games that allowed a public testing, the Battlefield Hardline Beta does not come with a level cap; so you can play to your heart’s content and reach whatever levels you can in the given time. Still, there is a downside to this; your progression will not be carried forward to the full game upon release.
Last but not the least, the promised Hardline dogtags for Battlefield 4 are going to be released with the March update of BF4 – yeah there is still time in that.
How excited are you about the beta testing?
