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.

      Playing through MW2's campaign again, I forgot how many batshit crazy watershed moments there were.   Like MW1 was way more grounded in reality. Both are great but MW2's campaign is like an 80's action movie at times. My heart still raced stealthing through the snow and hijacking the snow mobiles near the start. running through the favela tops, escaping the gulag. Its pretty fun experiencing it all again 10 years later with slightly better visuals. I'm glad it's this month's free game.

      Damn ground bee stung the hell out of my arm yesterday while I was weed whacking. If I could have gotten to their hive with the whacker I'd have shredded it into a million pieces and then ran for my life.  But the hive was in a concrete block. I sprayed it last night. I'll hit it with some expanding foam spray tonight to seal off the rest of them so they'll be buried alive.

      Now that the state of Mississippi has opted into the lottery, I can take a 15 min drive across the state line to a little gas station and buy tickets. Its astonishing how my state just refuses to even let us vote on it. People take their money to FL and GA for lotto tickets, and now the state we share out biggest border has it... on top of that most of the population is on the west side of the state anyways making it even easier. So dumb. I'm just glad I don't have to drive an hour plus to get tickets anymore. I can now make a weekly trip and try my luck.

      First it was a heat wave and now we got deluged with rain. Lol. We got so much rain the pool started overflowing at the white frame areas.

      The pool at max capacity is 4500 gallons and we only get 4000 delivered every year. The pool was getting a little low last week. Since last Saturday the pool got enough rain to fill it up over 500 gallons and overflow. So much water. 😮

      Can we just end this fucking year already before it starts getting anymore ideas?
      Fucking gutted over this. Grant was always my favorite host on Mythbusters.
      This news comes even more at a shock considering I also found out one of my old co-workers also died from the same thing.
      God this year sucks.......
