announced today that the open multiplayer beta for Battlefield Hardline
will start on February 3 and will end on February 8. The beta will be available to all players around the world on Origin for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The open beta will feature three different maps and modes highlighting this cops and criminals fantasy world. The all-new Hotwire mode brings high-speed chases to the battlefield, as the criminals attempt to steal a list of marked cars while the cops try to repossess them. Available on two maps in the beta, Downtown and Dust Bowl, success in Hotwire will be predicated on teamwork and precision driving. Players can also experience the Battlefield franchise's signature mode Conquest in Dust Bowl, with battles for up to 64 players (on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC). And finally, the beta will also feature Heist, another new mode being introduced in Battlefield Hardline. Playable on the map Bank Job, the mode will pit criminals trying to pull off that big score and break into a bank vault, securing their take at drop off points in the map while a squad of cops work together to stop them.
The beta will also give the first look at another game mode called Hacker. This takes surveillance to the next level as one player on each side can hack the battlefield in different ways including hacking into security cameras, spotting enemies and specifying areas for their team to attack or defend.
