Battlefield Hardline beta will be completely open, bring 2 playable game modes

Electronic Arts has announced a few more details today concerning the beta for the upcoming Battlefield Hardline. Perhaps the biggest news is that it will be completely open to players on all platforms, including the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

In addition, the company announced that two game modes, Hotwire and Conquest, will be available for play in the beta. According to EA:

Bust out those new gadgets, form new strategies and showcase your skills on two different maps and modes. First, take a test drive of Hotwire, an all-new mode coming to Battlefield focused on combining all-out warfare with all-out speed. This is how you introduce yourself to the new flavor Visceral Games is bringing to Battlefield with Battlefield Hardline. Or you can go all-out in 64-player cops and criminals warfare in the oldie but goodie, Conquest.

The official launch date for the beta was not revealed, but the full game has been given a release date of March 17, so the beta can't be too far off.
