Battlefield Hardline will be going Premium

BF Premium

What, you thought that you were going to pay only once for Battlefield Hardline? Ha! I scoff in your general direction! SCOFF TO THE MAX! Much like previous Battlefield games, Hardline will have a premium membership available for consumers who want more out of the multiplayer side of the game. And it’ll cost ya.

$50 dollars to be exact, which works out to R586 locally, or 40 squids for our UK pals. Here’s what your money gets you in Battlefield Hardline Premium:

  • Masks – New player masks with unique gameplay benefits tied to the theme of each mask.
  • Gun Bench – Provides players with the ability to visually customize their weapons and track their kills per weapon.
  • Competitive Play – Support for competitive play through Battlefield Hardline Premium-access only tournaments and ladders.
  • Legendary Status – Provides replayability of the entire progression system.
  • Four digital expansion packs featuring new multiplayer maps, modes, vehicles, in-game content and a story themed throughout all four:
  • Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity – Players have to make a name for themselves in fast-paced, highly-destructible new maps littered with small-time crime jobs. Available summer 2015.
  • Battlefield Hardline: Robbery – Take down the opposition head on and progress through key locations with major cinematic action. Available summer 2015.
  • Battlefield Hardline: Getaway – This is frantic, high-speed chases that immerse players deeper in the heist. Available fall 2015.
  • Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal – There is a rat in every operation and players will have to find out who to trust. Available winter early 2016.
  • Two weeks early access to all expansion packs.
  • 12 Gold Battlepacks.
  • New personalization options including gun camos, ammo skins, and more Battlefield Hardline Premium exclusive in-game items.
  • Access to double-XP, in-game missions, and more Battlefield Hardline Premium exclusive events.
  • Priority position in server queues

Plenty of content here, but as always, it’s a promise of the quality to come. Whether you choose to buy into that promise or not, is up to you.

        Just waiting for that special too come, plus I put a lot of hours into BF4 and still having fun, and BFH beta multiplayer felt like BF3 multiplayer which doesn’t feel right after playing BF4 for so long, no Fluidity

          when premium came out in bf3, i was like nowai, no chance am i paying as much/more than the game, for a DLC pack and queue priority, especially when its totally not necessary on south african servers and the default servers are the only servers with people on them.
          my friends all bought premium saying “yeah bf2 lasted us years, i’ll buy this because i know i’ll be playing bf3 for years to come” a year later bf4 comes out, then bfh.

          even on special, i refuse to pay full game price for a DLC pack.
          and now yuo have to have it if you want to play comp games? bull.

            I agree mostly though most people that play competitive have premium already though needing only Dragons Teeth isnt bad since that is a really good set of maps, especially Propaganda that’s why its in the 8v8 format now

    Ill buy BF again when they stop ripping people off with this “premium” pack which is 100% necessary to continue playing the game past 3 months, or you get left behind in old maps.

    you had any doubt?
    although it looks like theyv taken it one step further and put even more things out from the vanilla game and put it into premium…
    you now HAVE to buy the game twice to play comp games and customise your guns?
