Battlefield Hardline to offer non-lethal options

How much testosterone in battlefield hardline

Sometimes, all you want in a game is the ability to chase after a bad guy and shoot him with one of 51 weapons. Or maybe you want to kill using a tank or chopper instead. Whatever your method of destruction, Battlefield Hardline is determined to make it happen for you. Here are some new details about the game.

Over on twitter, Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis answered a wide variety of questions. Here’s a selection of them:

Papoutsis also stated that Beta details will be coming on Wednesday, so presumably some more information will be included then, too.

Battlefield has some serious PR work to do to get into gamers’ good books. After releasing a broken game, Hardline will have to not only be an excellent experience, but also work at launch. Added to that, people are expecting it to just be a re-skin of previous Battlefield games, so it will be important for Visceral Games to prove that they are bringing something new to the table.

Are you looking forward to some frenetic cops and robbers, or does it all feel too militarized for you? Considering political debates about the militarization of police lately (and how they use excessive force), I wonder how mainstream news outlets will have fun with Hardline when it releases.

    Non lethal option also known as the “Hands up, don’t shoot” option.

      Because telling a guy in MP “hands up” will make him submit and crawl into the fetal position….. But i guess you’ll get THAT guy who would be like ok cool I wouldn’t want my pixel character to be killed.

    “More than you can carry.”
    I immediately assumed that meant there would be at least 5 weapons (including a knife).

      No, that means there would be at least 6, as the would be ‘more’ than you can carry.

        1 primary, 1 secondary, 1 tool/utility, 1 knife = 4 weapons you can carry + 1 = 5 weapons in the game.

            50 on his belt. Who knows where he stores the rest.
            Nolan Batman probably had removable nipples that doubled up as tiny explosives.

            I think that’s why they speak so funny. Every time there’s a breeze from under the kilt they go all wonky with the talking.

    I really can’t get excited about this game at all. It just doesn’t look like it’s going to be what people expect from it.
    Oh, and it will probably not work either.

            It’s just a good idea to wait a month or two before trying to play them.

      “No, it is not open world, but we do offer more player choice, like going non-lethal.” Because non-lethal more than compensates for a game that’s not open world.

        You’ll probably get triple xp/cash/whatever for choosing one tactic over the other thus EVERYONE will be playing exactly the same.

          Sounds about right for BF. Also expect a stealth option that doesn’t really work.

        I see the appeal, but they’re just coining in on the battlefield name. It could be cool, I’m not condemning it just yet, but I won’t be buying it. Too many other great heist games out there.
