EA Games has put Battlefield Hardline on temporary parole, as it solicits some final feedback ahead of the first-person shooter's release next month. The open beta can be downloaded now on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Europe, but eager cops and robbers in North America may find themselves under lock and key until the PlayStation Store update publishes later today. The taster will run through 8th February.
The release wasn't especially well received during its initial test last E3, which ultimately prompted Visceral Games to delay the title outside of its original October 2014 launch window. The jury's still out on this edition, of course – but we hope for the developer's sake that it gets a thumbs up, otherwise things could be about to get a bit dicey for the firm.
