EA has announced plans for the next Battlefield Hardline beta test for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. The beta will allow you to progress through the game’s upgrades without a cap on the maximum level. There is no beta release date as of yet but given that the game is due out in March, it will likely be some time soon.
The beta will include two maps, Desert and Downtown as well as two game modes. Conquest will be making a return with 64 player cops vs robbers street warfare, while the new hotwire game mode will be based around vehicles:
“While it’s just a taste of the whole game, we want you to come in, take your jacket off, stay awhile,” Visceral boss Steve Papoutsis explained.
“To be frank, we want you to play this beta to death. We need you to. This test is only going to make the game stronger, and help us take a look at ways we can ensure we deliver the most stable launch you deserve.”
Battlefield Hardline is the first game in the series to be developed by Visceral Games, rather than DICE. It was originally due to release in October last year but chose to delay in order to avoid a potential ‘Battlefield 4 fiasco’.

KitGuru Says: EA and Visceral Games are likely banking on Hardline restoring Battlefield’s reputation in time for Battlefield 5, which will probably come out next year. Will any of you buys try out the Hardline beta?
