Battlefield Hardline open beta coming to all consoles


EA announced that they will be having an open beta for Visceral’s upcoming Cop-and-Robbers mash-up of the popular Battlefield franchise on all consoles (specifically: PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3.)

While we don’t have a date of when this beta is set (we assume it would be before the game’s launch on March 17) EA did give some insight on what to expect in the upcoming test. The series mainstay conquest mode will be available in the Beta and will feature 64-players on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, joining is a new mode called Hotwire which has been described as “an all-new mode coming to Battlefield focused on combining all-out warfare with all-out speed.”

There will be no level cap in the beta so that players can feel free to gain as many ranks, weapons and gadgets as they can, however none of this progress will carry over to the full game.
