Battlefield: Hardline will enter open beta testing on Tuesday, February 3, EA has confirmed.
Unlike the previous beta events, this one will be open for all players and across all platforms: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Consider it an ultimate stress test for the game’s servers as well.
According to the announcement, the beta will last only five days and end on Sunday, February 8. During the week, players will be given access to three game modes – Hotwire, Conquest, and Heist. These will be available for play across a selection of maps, including Downtown, Dust Bowl and Bank Job.
“There’s nothing more valuable to our team than the relationship we have with our community,” said Battlefield Hardline producer Steve Papoutsis. “Their passion feeds our passion and their feedback has definitely helped make Hardline a better game. We want them to play the hell out of the beta next week and trust that they’ll keep that feedback coming so we can continue to fine tune the game.”
Finally, the beta will give players the chance to check out the new ‘Hacker’ mode for the first time. The feature lets players on each team hack into security cameras to spot threats and cleared areas for their teams. This info will help in deciding whether a team should attack or defend.
Battlefield: Hardline launches in this March.
