The first DLC for Battlefield Hardline will land in June

Like every other Battlefield in recent times, Hardline has a multitude of additional content planned to keep the game’s community hooked well after release and into the foreseeable future. Reckon you’re over EA’s cop and robbers simulator already? The release of Hardline’s first DLC may jump start your excitement once more. It’s called Criminal Activity (such title, so creativity), and it’ll be available next month.

Here’s the premise for shooting each other even more because REASONS (via Polygon):

Small crews of well-trained, aggressive criminals have been using force of arms to terrorize the citizenry and are in direct conflict with the police in many cases.  Public property damages and insurance claims have skyrocketed, not to mention the impact on the police force.

Detectives have uncovered evidence of a secret crime ring that could be behind all of this activity.  They’re not sure why anyone would coordinate these goals – in a number of cases, the take seems to be smaller than the risk. But, orders have come down the chain to find out what’s going on and put a stop to it. Will you help the police?

What better way to solve a case than to shoot and blow up everything in sight? Criminals beware… JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED!

Here’s some nifty bullets containing all the neat features you can expect from Hardline’s first DLC pack:

  • Four fast-paced new maps – Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday
  • Two new rides
  • Two new ammunition types for specific weapons
  • A new gadget
  • Three new weapons
  • A nailgun battlepickup
  • New Bounty Hunter game mode
  • Six new masks:  two animal masks, and four new police headgear options

Having not played the game yet myself, I can’t really offer comment on whether these new additions are exciting or not. What about you, are you keen to play some more Blah Cops? Does this DLC appeal to you at all?

    No I prefer proper games like Witcher and GTA. Not a shameless BF4 mod.

    I might get it, BF: Hardline is the first Battlefield that I have played and really enjoyed as an online game.

    I don’t have a pathological hatred of everything EA does.

    …I was probably 1 of the 2 South Africans that bought BFH…the game is awesome, really is. Spawning is crap and you get spawn-raped a lot. That needs to be fixed. Feels like damage is also buggy, but the different types of game modes are cool.
    That said, no idea why MWEB decided to get so many BFH servers up-and-running. Nobody plays it, and I have to play overseas…luckily I had vouchers for the game and didn’t pay for it, but BF4 is where I end up playing mostly as it is…
