Battlefield Hardline: Live event (#BFHardlineLive) is taking place at a secret Central London location for eight days from Wednesday 18th March 2015 until Wednesday 25th March 2015. It will give players the chance to lead their crew in a high adrenaline, high stakes experience that could see them win £10,000. To launch Battlefield Hardline:
Those that win a place to take part in Battlefield Hardline: Live through GAME’s Evidence Sweep will lead their crew in to a murky world where deceit and destruction are all in a day’s work. Can crews get in, get the goods, then get out without being caught?
Battlefield Hardline: Live draws inspiration from three of Battlefield Hardline’s new game modes – Heist, Blood Money and Rescue as well as the multiplayer maps Growhouse, The Block and Derailed.
Battlefield Hardline: Live will be a one-hour controlled yet immersive experience with the winning crew leader claiming a £10,000 bounty but then facing a dilemma – keep it all or share with their crew? For full details visit www.battlefield.com/hardline/live .
Battlefield Hardline will be available Friday 20th March 2015 in the United Kingdom on Origin™ for PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system.
