Battlefield: Hardline Delayed to 2015

Battlefield hardline has been delayed until 2015. I'm glad they're doing this. They might actually turn the game into something original now instead of releasing a BF4 clone.

Today we are announcing that Battlefield Hardline will launch in early 2015. Obviously, this is big news, so I’d like to address why we’re making this change.

Back at E3, we launched a beta for Hardline — we wanted to not only show you the game, but to let you play it for yourselves. Millions of you jumped in and had a great time. As a result, the Visceral Games team learned a lot from players about what they wanted in the game. We’ve been poring over the data and feedback, and have already been putting a lot of it right into the game and sharing it directly with you.

This feedback also spurred us to start thinking about other possibilities and ways we could push Hardline innovation further and make the game even better. The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.

We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.

This game should be a good change of pace for the battlefield franchise. I doubt it will have the player count of BF4 tho, which makes me think this game is being made as a battlefield alternative to COD. I hope it has co-op missions like in BF3.

Yeah, I cant see a group of 32 robbers robbing a bank XD. But I guess 64 players could work for the money mode. Doubt it... this is going to be more of a Bad Company type entrance to the series. Honestly, after Battlefront, I hope we get a Bad Company 3 and BF5 doesn't come out for another 4-5 years.

Check out the new 6 minutes of multiplayer gameplay video for Battlefield: Hardline.

 

 

The official website is also now open, so go sign up for the closed beta here:

 

http://www.battlefield.com/hardline/beta

 

I recommend using chrome, because firefox didn't seem to handle the origin login correctly. Even still I got numerous 500 errors, just keep clicking to get signed up.

I just did this a couple more times, the beta signup sometimes looks like it loads correctly, but unless your username and email address is shown on the final signup page, then I'm going to assume it didn't take. It took me about 15 attempts to get the page to load my username and email on the page correctly. They must be getting hammered with beta requests.

My signup is in, hoping to get in so I can try this out. I was watching Frankie from youtube fame (FRANKIEonPCin1080p) stream it on his Twitch account last night before the Sony Press Conference. Looks freaking fun as hell and extremely fast paced. I like the fact that Robbers get baseball bats as they're melee weapons, freaking hilarious.

Well I did get into the beta and played a few games earlier. Honestly this is a much faster paced game then BF4, with Heist matches lasting generally 5-10 minutes a piece. I'll say this much the key to playing, imo, is teamwork which sadly no one I played with seemed to have as they were treating it like BF4 trying to get kills instead of getting the money to the escape points (for Robbers, Cops have to prevent this). Can definitely tell this is a beta as well considering the controls are kinda clunky and characters move a lot like they have something shoved up their ass (when you sprint it feels more like a fast walk).

 

Going to try out Blood Money tonight when I get back on to see what it's like. Frankie posted a vid on it yesterday and it looks pretty fun and a lot faster paced then Heist.

I was going to play this tomorrow, but I got called into work on my off day and I already have to work on another off day. so I dunno if I'll get to try this beta out.

I never got a beta code in my email so I'll be missing out on this beta. I'll have to watch some more clips and streams online. Oh well, it gave me time to play Watch Dogs. :P
