Finally, from [Register or Login to view links] below is how to get into Battlefield Hardline PS4 Beta without a code:
You can register for a beta [Register or Login to view links], but chances right now are quite slim; fortunately, there seems to be a way to get into the PS4 beta even without a code.
Choose the “Live from PlayStation” window, then look for the Battlefield: Hardline stream (it’s the first one right now). Now you’ll be able to click “Go to PlayStation Store”, where you’ll be able to download the game.
This worked perfectly for me and others, although there’s no telling on how long it will last; also, it seems like it won’t trigger for every PlayStation Store. I have verified that it doesn’t work on the Italian PS Store, for example, but it works on the US one. Please let us know your experience in the comments.
The beta’s file size is around 6GB, by the way. In the meantime, you can wet your appetite with the multiplayer gameplay demo they had on stage.
