New details emerging from Gamescom 2014 suggest Visceral’s cops and criminals shooter is headed towards a February launch with the game’s PlayStation, Xbox, and PC open beta taking place one month prior, in January.
Speaking to fan site and forums Symthic, a representative from the studio was able to confirm that Battlefield Hardline‘s second multiplayer beta should arrive sometime in January, one month before Battlefield Hardline’s official launch.
“Yes. There will be an open beta in January, a month before the game launches,” said the representative. Adding platform details, the rep explained that “It’s not sure yet if [Visceral] will do the beta on older generation systems like the PS3 and Xbox 360, but they’ll definitely be on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.”
Thus far, Visceral has yet to officially declare specifics on Battlefield Hardline’s launch and second multiplayer beta, other than giving the game an “early 2015” release window when the studio first announced its delayed launch.
Earlier, Visceral GM Steve Papoutsis took the stage at EA’s Gamescom presentation to unveil Battlefield Hardline’s single player for the first time, as well as two brand new multiplayer modes. Watch the 12-minute gameplay demo and Rescue multiplayer trailer here.
