Get hard with Battlefield Hardline open beta

Starts Feb. 3, ends Feb. 8

Today, EA announced that the Battlefield Hardline open beta will begin February 3 and end on February 8.

If you haven’t had a chance to play EA’s version of cops and robbers, now is this time. Well, technically February is the time.

Regardless, this will be an open multiplayer beta for anyone with a PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, or Xbox 360. EA has promised some big changes since we last played Hardline, so now we’ll be able to see for ourselves.

Featured will be three different maps and modes:

  1. Hotwire mode: Thugs try to steal marked cars while cops try to take them. This will be playable on two maps: Downtown and Dust Bowl.
  2. Conquest mode: The traditional Battlefield mode.
  3. Heist mode: Taking place on the Bank Job map, this mode is basically what it sounds like: You try to steal shit and the police try to stop you.

The open beta also promises to make the full multiplayer progression system available for players. This will be a good time to test and tweak what you want for the full release.
