Battlefield Hardline has been a hit and miss topic of discussion among fans and haters of the Battlefield franchise. Plenty called out EA and Dice for attempting to make a whole new title to raise profits when it should just be a DLC for Battlefield 4. While I can understand some of the arguments, they really are negated by the fact that the title isn’t a war game and has a totally different story mode that isn’t even being handled by either, but by Visceral games. All of that can easily go into a whole new article, now the important bit of information is that there is an open beta close at hand that will cover all gaming platforms that the title will release for when it officially comes out March 17th.
I had a rather fun time on the first PC beta. Even though the modes and maps were limited. Similar to the last beta all the amps and modes won’t be accessible. Luckily though there two different maps to run around on and explore. More so though, there will be two modes: Hotwire and Conquest. Hotwire is one mode that I have personally been excited to check out myself. The page details say it is focused on :combining all-out warfare with all-out speed.” In a nutshell it is like Conquest where you capture the points on the map, but instead of static points they are actually a variety of vehicles that change. To capture the point you have to steal it and drive it like you stole it, which you did, and keep it above a certain speed to earn the points. Of course the opposing team will be attempting to steal it back or to just blow it up. Either way, it should turn out to be a heck of wild constant car chasing battle. Here is a little video from the man him self, jackfrags, playing the new mode.
