Players wanting to get a shot at an early run on Battlefield Hardline will get that opportunity next month. Electronic Arts and Visceral Games announced this week that a trial version of the game will be available exclusively for EA Access members on March 12.
The free trial version offers players 10 hours of gameplay for both multiplayer and single-player content. Players will have the opportunity to check out the prologue and first episode of the single-player campaign. All of Battlefield Hardline’s multiplayer modes and maps will be available to play. In addition, EA has confirmed that all the progress from the trial version will be carried over to the game at launch.
The new free trial version comes off the heels of the recent beta version, which was available earlier this month. As previously reported, Visceral Games announced that over seven million people played the beta for Hardline. It appears that anticipation is heavy for this new iteration of Battlefield inspired by crime and police thrillers.
In addition, EA has provided The Paranoid Gamer with a new gameplay trailer for Battlefield Hardline, which is available below. Following the release of the free trial version to EA Access members, Battlefield Hardline will launch five days later on March 17. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
