To celebrate the launch of Battlefield Hardline, which will be released on multiple formats on 20 March, Electronic Arts is inviting gamers to try out a real cops and robbers style experience in the heart of London, with a prize of £10,000 up for grabs to the best individual or to be shared amongst their team.

The real life experience allows you to lead a crew against other teams of like-minded individuals, with the winning team the one to pull of the perfect crime the most successfully.

Each immersive production takes one hour and is being put together by theatre company differencEngine and it runs for eight days, from 18 to 25 March.

Those interested in signing up for an opportunity to take part need to head to battlefield.com/hardline/live, which will direct them to the entry process. You get the chance to choose your own four crew members, so select them wisely, there's a lot of cash at stake.

EA Access members on Xbox One get a rare treat this weekend as the full Battlefield Hardline game is available to them on a trial basis. This means that they get the final version but locked to 10 hours of play.
