has word that the recent spate of Battlefield Hardline
beta testing has concluded, and lays out some of the plans for refining the cops
and robbers shooter for its October launch, including word that there will be
another round of beta testing in the fall. Here's a bit:
Hardline beta is now closed, we want to thank everyone who took part! Running a
beta during E3 was definitely something that was hard to pull off, but we did it
for two reasons. First, we want your feedback early. We’re listening to it,
we’re acting on it and it’s going to help make Hardline a better game when we
launch in October. Second, we’re gamers like you. It’s great to hear about games
and see games, but we want to play games. And even though it is still early and
we have a lot of work left to do, it was important to us that you could see and
feel for yourself what we’re doing with Hardline.
But this beta is only the beginning. . .
In the months ahead we’ll be revealing more details about what we’re doing in
multiplayer as well as what the team at Visceral is bringing to the singleplayer
campaign. As many of you know from previous Visceral games, we have a unique way
of telling our stories and engrossing players in our worlds, and Hardline will
be no different. We are doing some cool new things in how we present the
campaign, similar to what you see when watching episodes of your favorite TV
shows. It’s something different and we’re fired up about it. Keep your eyes out
for more on this next month.
