Playstation March Lineup
Welcome to the Playstation March Lineup! Headlining the releases this month is Battlefield Hardline which is a bit of a departure from the previous Battlefield games, as this one has a cops and robbers twist to it. I was able to try out the Battlefield Hardline Beta and it seemed to run really smooth and graphically enhanced, especially for the next gen consoles. Even though Battlefield is changing from their Military roots, the same spirit in gameplay still exists and there are a variety multiplayer modes that will keep you playing this game for a long time. If you haven’t already signed up for the PS Plus Subscription service, right now is a great time to do so!
