Battlefield Hardline Open Beta lock 'n' loads February 3rd
Gamers curious about Battlefield's new cops & robbers direction will get a final chance to play the game before its March release
The open beta, running from the 3rd to the 8th of February, will show off the multiplayer side of the game.
Featuring three different maps and modes highlighting the cops and robbers fantasy world, the beta will allow players to get to grips with the high octane Hotwire mode, the strategy intensive Heist mode and the classic Conquest mode.
The maps on offer are the skyscraper filled Downtown, backwater Dustbowl (complete with meth lab) and Bank Job for all your safe-cracking needs.
Independent.ie got to grips with the multiplayer, so check back for some exclusive footage (which mainly consists of us getting blown-up.)
