The Battlefield Hardline PC and PlayStation 4 beta has come to a close, but developer Visceral Games says there is still plenty to look forward to, including more multiplayer details over the next few months, as well as a second beta this Fall that will “showcase more.”
“In the months ahead we’ll be revealing more details about what we’re doing in multiplayer as well as what the team at Visceral is bringing to the singleplayer campaign,” the studio wrote in a recent blog entry thanking fans for their participation in the beta.
They went on to stress that “The Battlefield Hardline beta was just a small portion of what is in store,” likely in reaction to remarks that Hardline should have just been Battlefield 4 DLC.
“We have plenty of new modes in the game that really play off the cop and criminal theme, as well as the return of fan-favorites. The variety in maps is also something that Battlefield fans have never experienced before, from subterranean grow labs to the streets of Miami, complete with all the vibe and flavor that city has to offer.”
We remember fans getting pretty pumped about a prospect of a Battlefield map set in Miami back when that “All-American” Battlefield 3 DLC rumor surfaced. More recent rumors suggest other Hardline maps will be set in areas like the desert, or even LA’s Hollywood Hills. We also take it that “the return of fan-favorites” indicates the return of staple Battlefield modes like Conquest and Rush.
The studio went on to reiterate that Battlefield Hardline’s second beta will arrive on all platforms that the game has been announced for this Fall and “will showcase more,” meaning we’ll likely get a peek at a different multiplayer map and game mode before Hardline’s full release on October 21.
