It may have been delayed, but hopefully that means Battlefield Hardline might actually, um… work?

Jokes aside, it’s not long until EA’s next shooter hits consoles, and that means it’s also time for Beta. Starting on February 3rd on Origin, PSN and Xbox Live, Visceral Games hope to test the limits of their multiplayer component in order to provide a fun, stable build at launch.

Executive Producer of Battlefield Hardline Steve Papoutsis commented on the impending Beta test.

“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.”

The Beta is expected to run from February 3rd until the 8th and will allow PC, PS4 and Xbox One players to participate in Conquest mode, garnering up to 64 players per match. Older platforms such as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will only muster 24 players. Sorry last-gen.

Battlefield Hardline will be available in the UK on March 20th, keep an eye out for a review around its release. In the meantime, why not check out the trailer below to see what’s new in EA’s bombastic FPS.
