Battlefield Hardline's open multiplayer beta will take place next week, according to an Electronic Arts announcement this morning, released alongside a trailer.
The cops-vs-robbers multiplayer shooting game will run from Feb. 3 to Feb. 8 and will be available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. In Battlefield Hardline, heavily armed cops are pitted against equally tooled-up criminals in a contest for terrain, loot and lives.
The beta will feature three different maps including an urban downtown setting and a rural ghost town. Various modes will be available including Hotwire, in which both teams seek to possess stolen cars dotted around the map. Heist is based on a bank robbery, with various exits and entry points. Conquest is also available, offering battles for up to 64 players.
Battlefield Hardline will be available March 17 in North America and March 19 in Europe.
