Stats! Developers love to boast about them, and lazy writers such as myself who really need that cup of tea in the morning in order to get the brain juices flowing, love ‘em even more. The Battlefield Hardline beta wrapped up a few weeks ago after an open beta period which lasted several days. Cars were totalled, guns were fired and many a donut joke was presumably made as we shuddered at the realisation that our own cops were just as trigger-happy in real life as we were in a game. So here’s the stats, Jack.
Or you can scroll down and check out the much prettier infographic instead. I don’t mind, it’s not like I was up all night typing out those 37 words below. Man, I really need to learn how to touch-type:
- 7 million players
- $2.8 worth of loot stolen from banks in Heist
- 3.8 million vaults busted
- 38 million cars hotwired
- 21 million hotwire takedowns
- 57% of wins for the cops
- $527 billion of cash earned in total
And since I’m feeling generous, here’s a video dev diary which breaks down the beta even further, into more manageable bite-size chunks:
Battlefield Hardline is out March 17 (USA) and 19 (Europe) on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It might also be the first Battlefield game in a long time with a single-player side that I’m actually interested in, thanks to Visceral choosing to not set the game in yet another sandy patch of Iraq.
