Battlefield: Hardline

14 posts in this topic



While it lasts, here is the leaked, in depth trailer for Battlefield Hardline. This will be the first Battlefield title that isn't made by DICE. Instead, Visceral will take the helm and try to breath much needed life into the series less than stellar solo campaigns. While DICE works on Star Wars: Battlefront, Visceral will move the BF series away from the overly used modern warfare setting and hit the urban streets of law enforcement and the world of crime.

 

When I first heard it was going to be about cops, I cringed hard thinking how terrible that sounded. But looking at these fresh new game modes, I'm pretty interested in it. Its like PAYDAY: The Heist using Frostbite 3. The campaign looks like it might be pretty good too. It could be the right move, because as amazing as BF4 is, you can only do so many games of the same theme. It also looks like they've employed a monetary system for unlocks... this is loved and hated for some. I personally like it, and it was my favorite aspect of Black Ops 1. I like to unlock what I want, in the order I'd like to have it.

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.

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.

Its definitely a fresh take to get away from the modern combat genre. The getaway aspect in normal cars and bikes looks like a blast.

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 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
