EA will launch a Premium service for Battlefield Hardline, the game's beta has confirmed.

Signs of the subscription service can be found in the beta's customisation menu (pictured above), where a range of wearable patches are listed exclusively for Premium subscribers.

"Premium subscribers will find these Patches in Silver and Gold Battlepacks," their description reads.

The range of patches offered to subscribers appear to be themed around animals, including a shark, dinosaur and lion.

'Expansion Packs' are also referred to in the beta's loading screens.

While EA has yet to formally announce a Premium subscription service for Battlefield Hardline, it has previously rolled one out for both Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. In those cases, Premium offered access to the full range of expansion packs ahead of their release along with additional bonuses.

Battlefield Hardline launches on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on March 20.
