Battlefield Hardline's open beta test will begin next Tuesday, February 3, EA has confirmed.

The beta will be open to all players on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC until it ends on Sunday, February 8.

Throughout the week, players will be given access to three game modes - Hotwire, Conquest and Heist - across a selection of multiplayer maps, including Downtown, Dust Bowl and Bank Job.

The beta will also offer the first look at 'Hacker' mode, a new feature that lets one player on each team hack into security cameras to spot enemies and specify areas for their team to attack or defend. EA says that Hacker will be playable on all game modes in the beta.

"There's nothing more valuable to our team than the relationship we have with our community," said Battlefield Hardline producer Steve Papoutsis. "Their passion feeds our passion and their feedback has definitely helped make Hardline a better game. We want them to play the hell out of the beta next week and trust that they'll keep that feedback coming so we can continue to fine tune the game."

Battlefield Hardline launches in the UK on March 20.
