EA's undoubtedly annoyed that all its plans for Battlefield: Hardline leaked prior to E3, but oh well. Them's the breaks.
Regardless, Battlefield: Hardline is an upcoming shooter from Visceral Games that's basically a digital version of cops and robbers. Let's hope it's better
than the last time this concept was explored—the 2010 flop APB.
EA debuted the new Heist mode with a 32-player demo—robbers blew up a bunch of armored cars and had to escape with what was inside. The whole game looks a
little too "military" for what I'd expect from cops and robbers, betraying its Battlefield roots, but overall it's an interesting concept.
Even crazier? You can sign up for the beta today, right here. PS4 and PC only.
