The Battlefield Hardline beta is now closed, but another Battlefield Hardline beta that “will showcase more” will launch this fall on all announced platforms, Developer Visceral Games’ VP and GM Steve Papoutsis said in a post on Battlefield’s official blog.

“The Battlefield Hardline beta was just a small portion of what is in store,” Papoutsis said. “We have plenty of new modes in the game that really play off the cop and criminal theme, as well as the return of fan-favorites.”

Papoutsis also said that we should expect to hear more about the multiplayer mode in the months ahead, as well as the single player campaign. Visceral is best known for its work on the Dead Space series, and Papoutsis said that Battlefield Hardline’s single player campaign will similarly engross players in the game’s story and world. “We are doing some cool new things in how we present the campaign, similar to what you see when watching episodes of your favorite TV shows,” Papoutsis said. “It’s something different and we’re fired up about it.”

Responding to critics who say that this year's Battlefield Hardline looks too iterative, lead multiplayer designer Thad Sesser recently explained the improvements, tweaks, and additions the studio has made to the Battlefield 4 formula, which makes Battlefield Hardline more than just an expansion.

Battlefield Hardline launches on October 21 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360,Xbox One, and PC.
