Another Battlefield Hardline beta coming this autumn

To all announced platforms.

Another Battlefield Hardline beta launches this autumn, EA has announced.

In a post on the Battlefield blog, Visceral boss Steve Papoutsis said this second beta would be made available to all platforms: PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The recent beta, now closed, was an attempt to get early feedback from players, Papoutsis said.

"We're listening to it, we're acting on it and it's going to help make Hardline a better game when we launch in October," he said.

Papoutsis added that Visceral will reveal more about the game's single-player, and how it will be presented "similar to what you see when watching episodes of your favourite TV shows", in July. But given much of what Hardline is doing with its campaign leaked before the game was even announced, we don't expect a huge surprise.

"It's something different and we're fired up about it," Papoutsis said.

As for multiplayer, Papoutsis said the recent beta only offered a small portion of the final game.

"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 favourites. 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 flavour that city has to offer."
