Battlefield Hardline‘s second multiplayer beta is coming to all platforms — PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 — developer Visceral Games confirmed today.
In a second entry to the studio’s new “This Season On Hardline” blog series, Visceral dove in to some brand new details about the upcoming beta, letting fans know what to expect and what they’ll be getting their hands on.
During the beta, players will have access to two game modes, Hotwire and 64-player Conquest. Conquest, we all know and love. Hotwire shifts the focus on vehicular warfare with moving objectives and high speed chases, which was showcased earlier last month in these community gameplay videos.
According to Visceral, player progression won’t be capped out at any level, meaning you can grind to as high of a rank as you would like. A gallery of new images were also found in the studio’s latest blog entry, presumably of the two maps that will be available in the beta, Dust Bowl and Downtown:
Sadly, an exact date for the launch of the beta is still unknown, so those anxious to find out will have to hang tight until the studio is ready to reveal it. As lead multiplayer designer Thadeus Sasser mentioned on Twitter, Visceral won’t make the announcement until the beta has passed certification and everything is in place. Keep your sights on MP1st in the meantime!
UPDATE: Reaching out to Sasser about the beta’s selection of weapons and gadgets, he mentioned that “progression is unlimited, but no word on weapons / gadgets.”
During the beta, players will be able to submit their feedback to the official forums on the Battlelog.
