After a ‘not so great’ beta last year today EA and Visceral Games announced that Battlefield Hardline’s open multiplayer beta will be active between February 3 and February 8*. It will be available to players worldwide on PC, PS3, PS4, XB360 and XB1 and will offer “a small taste of what’s in store when the game hits the streets beginning March 17”.
During the beta players will be able to try out three maps and game modes: Hotwire, Conquest and Heist played on the Downtown, Dust Bowl and Bank Job maps. You’ll also be able to try out Hacker mode, which is similar to the Commander mode from Battlefield 4.
*The beta will be available February 4-8 in Japan on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
