At this very moment, select PC and PlayStation 4 users are indulging in an early beta for EA's Battielfield Hardline, which was fully revealed this past week at E3 2014. A few of you Xbox One users may be feeling left out in the cold as a result, but don't worry. You'll soon get your turn.
Talking with OXM, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson explained that a new beta would be on the way to Microsoft's console, so owners of that system can try it out as well.
"We will have a beta on all platforms before release," said Troedsson. "But it won't be this beta on Xbox. It's not going to be the same version, just to be clear."
EA will continue testing out multiplayer in this way to avoid multiplayer problems moving forward…like the ones still hanging over Battlefield 4. "We basically have code in the hands of players already, here at E3. We've never done that before," said Troedsson. "We do it both because we want their feedback of course, but also because in the background we are testing various things. We're going to continue doing more tests like this."
Look for the full Hardline to drop at retail on October 21st.
