More details have been leaked for the multiplatform video game, "Battlefield Hardline." According to a report from DL Central on June 6, the software product was listed on the Playstation Store of the PS4. The page provided some insight on the gameplay and story of the first-person shooting title from Electronic Arts.

The main focus of the latest "Battlefield" game is the concept of cops versus criminals. It is going to combine the multiplayer elements the series is known for with a "crime drama" plot found in current television shows. Players will play as Nick Mendoza, an officer who decided to seek vengeance in multiple areas across the country.

The multiplayer features various activities such as hunting criminals, raiding vaults and saving hostages. Two of the match type will be called "Heist" and "Rescue." An online beta is also being planned as Sony Computer Entertainment is sending out beta codes to attendees of the company's upcoming E3 2014 press conference.

The multiplayer beta codes suggest that Electronic Arts may be partnering with the PS4 console manufacturer with the release of "Battlefield Hardline." The two companies previously teamed up with the launch of "Battlefield 3." For "Battlefield 4," however, the third-party publisher decided to partnered with Microsoft Studios.

Aside from the PS4, "Battlefield Hardline" is also going to be made available for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The first-person shooter won't be released for the Wii U, which is not surprising considering the statements made by several Electronic Arts representatives in the past regarding Nintendo's high definition console. The upcoming title is using the same Frostbite 3 graphics engine as last year's "Battlefield 4."

The development team at Visceral Games is responsible for the production of the new game. More information should be disclosed at E3 2014. A screen from the new first-person shooting game from the official series' Twitter website can be found near the top of this article. You can pre-order the new first-person shooter on the Amazon site in the next page: "Battlefield Hardline."
