EA Invite Everyone to Join Battlefield Hardline Open Beta When It Launches Next Month


The teams at Electronic Arts and Visceral Games have announced that everyone is invited to take part in the Battlefield Hardline open beta test, which is set to begin on February 3rd and conclude on February 8th. This beta test will be open to everyone who has installed Origin on their PC or owns a PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and/or Xbox One gaming console.

As announced previously, the beta test will feature a number of different modes which seek to give Battlefield fans a look into what to expect from the final product which hits store shelves on March 19th 2015. First off is Hotwire, an all-new mode that seeks to merge all-out warfare with all-out speed. The second mode dubbed “Conquest”, involves a 64-player war (24-players on PS3 / XB360) between Cops and Criminals. The Battlefield Hardline beta will not be capping level progression during its six-day testing period, granting players access to an array of new weapons, vehicles, gadgets and gear.

On top of all this, the beta will give the first look at another game mode called Hacker. This seeks to take surveillance to the next level as one player on each side can hack the battlefield in different ways. Some of the ways this can be done includes hacking into security cameras, spotting enemies and specifying areas of interest for the team to attack or defend. While described as a “mode”, Hacker Mode will be playable on all modes introduced in this beta test at the very least.

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. 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.
