A start date for Battlefield Hardline's open beta will be announced tomorrow, Visceral has confirmed.

The announcement follows rumours earlier this week suggesting that the beta is due to go live next Tuesday, February 3.

Once it goes live, the beta will be open to all users on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, and allow players to try out two multiplayer modes - Conquest and Hotwire - ahead of the full game's release on March 20.

You might also get the chance to revisit Heist, the multiplayer mode featured in last year's closed beta, although EA has yet to confirm whether Battlefield 4 players reached the requirement set out during last week's Community Mission.

"Listening and responding to the feedback - whether it's from the beta, events, various feedback sessions with the world's most influential and hardcore Battlefield players - have helped us fine tune the game in many ways," said executive producer Steve Papoutsis. "We've made bigger changes like re-shaping Heist mode, tweaking progression and the UI to name a few. But we've also focused on the 'small' things. As you'll see in the dev diary video [below], gameplay aspects like visual recoil have been perfected thanks to your input.

"During the upcoming beta, we expect to get even more useful intel for the final touches before launch (starting March 17). You can still make a difference, especially when it comes to those 'small things' that we might be able to fine tune for launch or shortly after."

Visceral revealed the full line-up of multiplayer maps included in Battlefield Hardline last week.
