The full release of Battlefield Hardline is just under two months away and today Visceral Games have announced and detailed the open multiplayer beta.

Available from Feb 3rd-Feb 8th, the open beta will be available for players on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC and will feature new weapons, new vehicles, new gadgets and new gear.

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 epic battles for up to 64 players. 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.

It’ll give players the chance to create new strategies and get to grips with the likes of the zipline and grappling hook. As well as big cops vs criminal battles, you’ll also get to run through arrests, interrogations and as well as taking in three difference maps and modes will get to experience the ‘Hacker’ game mode.

Taking surveillance to another level, one player on each side will be able to hack the battlefield, helping their team attack or defend and should bring a whole new dimension of gameplay to proceedings.

“There’s nothing more valuable to our team than the relationship we have with our community. Their passion feeds our passion and their feedback has definitely helped make Hardline a better game,” said Steve Papoutsis, General Manager of Visceral Games and Executive Producer of Battlefield Hardline. “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.”

Battlefield Hardline will be available on March 20th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC.
