Battlefield Hardline is holding another beta this autumn on all available platforms.
The news comes via Visceral chief Steve Papoutsis on the Battlefield blog, where he confirmed the second beta will hit PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The first beta, which recently drew to a close, was done in a bid to gather early information about the game he explained, saying "We're listening to it, we're acting on it and it's going to help make Hardline a better game when we launch in October".
News about what to expect from single-player is coming next month, though thanks to a number of leaks we already know it'll be designed around episode-like missions replete with cliffhangers.
For anyone who played the first beta and was worried the content was a little sparse, Papoutsis was quick to assert that it only offered a glimpse at what the final title.
"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 favourites," he said. "The variety in maps is also something that Battlefield fans have never experienced before, from subterranean grow labs to the streets of Miami, complete with all the vibe and flavour that city has to offer."
