Battlefield: Hardline leak shows hard police work

1 min read


Ever since the delay, EA has been keeping Battlefield: Hardline under wraps. It’s the first year in a while without a core Battlefield title, and considering the state Hardline was in it was probably the better call. But even I have to admit that the single-player is looking quite rad.

Hardline is all about the cops and robbers power struggle, although that was probably difficult to see in previous explosive-filled trailers. This collection of snippets from the campaign does a better job of showing off some police work that is still marginally believable.

When you’re not shooting up public streets, you’ll be flashing your badge and making arrests. A lot of arrests in fact, if the video above is anything to go by. It gives off a far more authentic police atmosphere, as opposed to high speed chases where entire building were being blown up along the way.

It also looks like there’s going to be a big emphasis on some stealth, which is alright by me. You’re not a soldier wearing his own weight in kevlar. You’re a detective, and that thin bulletproof vest can only do so much in a firefight. So stealth will hopefully be a viable option in most cases.

I’m cautiously more excited for Hardline after seeing this. Playing the multiplayer beta a few months ago left a sour taste in my mouth, but it does look like EA isn’t letting this delay go to waste. Considering what a mess Battlefield 4 was, they’ll need all the polish time they can get.

    Ok, this game starting to look seriously cool, but still not getting day one
    edit: co-op would work perfect for this game

    Meh, Battlefield(EA) won’t see my money again after BF4. They should give this away for free to people who bought BF4.

    Can’t wait for this game, BF4 was a flop on day one. But now that game works and the final dlc is out tomorrow so will be playing that until hardline.

    Beware the lying media, the last time this company tried to release a battlefield game they got sued because it was so broken. After gamergate there is no reason to trust mainstream gaming jounalism.

    Was really interested in Hardline but it needed a lot more emphasis on the realism especially when it comes to the single player. So far it seems like this is another Battlefield with new gameplay mechanics.
