All you have to do is sign up to get instant access to the Battlefield: Hardline beta.

Battlefield: Hardline is the upcoming "cops and robbers"-themed Battlefield title that is due out in October. As has become customary for Battlefield titles, EA is running a beta for the game. Previously, the beta was closed, but now, at least for its PC version, the beta is completely open to everyone and anyone. All you have to do is sign up at the beta page to get instant access, as well as a few exclusive perks for being a beta tester.

These perks include:

  • Weapon camo/skin in Battlefield Hardline
  • Weapon sight in Battlefield Hardline
  • Additional Battlefield Hardline content
  • Unique dog tag in Battlefield 4

If you managed to make it to level 10 in-game before the beta ends, you'll also get a "special battlepack" for the game when it launches, and if you turn on "Facebook sharing", you'll get $1k of in-game money to spend.

I strongly urge everyone to try this one out, but not for the reasons you might think. Battlefield: Hardline represents probably the worst of Battlefield - a shoddy cut-and-paste mod at best, and a shameless attempt to squeeze another full priced game (which will have its own set of inevitable "premium" DLC) out of the Battlefield 3 engine.

It's kind of sad that back in 2011, DICE said that "annualized Battlefield would kill the franchise", and now, Battlefield: Hardline is poised to do just that.

Battlefield: Hardline releases for the PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on October 21.
