Thanks to Visceral Games and Electronic Arts, a brand new Battlefield game is available across the country. Battlefield Hardline is now available in North America in retail stores and for digital download on Origin for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
EA promises that Battlefield Hardline will deliver, “the ultimate cops and criminals, blockbuster, action fantasy delivered through a world-class multiplayer experience that fans have come to love from the Battlefield franchise and an all-new episodic single player campaign inspired by modern TV crime dramas.” The game is already receiving great critical praise as USA Today says that, “it’s a fascinating direction for the Battlefield series” and IGN says it’s “fast and furious.”
“Our goal with Battlefield Hardline was to create the most complete first-person shooter this year by building upon the unrivaled multiplayer franchise DICE created and adding a memorable single player experience with storylines and characters that fans will care about just like they would their favorite TV show,” said Steve Papoutsis, General Manager of Visceral Games and Executive Producer of Battlefield Hardline. “We’ve added a new level of strategy, speed and storytelling to one of the greatest franchises in the history of videogames. We’re incredibly excited for players to get their hands on it.”
Powered by the award-winning Frostbite 3 game engine, Battlefield Hardline delivers a stylish and fresh new approach to the critically-acclaimed franchise as players experience both sides of the law in a crime-fueled, cops and criminals showdown. Unfolding on the gritty and glamorous streets of Los Angeles and Miami, Battlefield Hardline ushers in an all-new era for Battlefield fans with inspired new game modes, like Hotwire and Heist, new weaponry, vehicles, and gadgets for players to take down the opposition their own way. From police choppers to muscle cars, ziplines to stun guns, Battlefield Hardline lets gamers choose their approach in jaw-dropping and chaotic urban warfare.
Featuring a veteran cast of actors and writers, including Alexandra Daddario from True Detective, Kelly Hu from Arrow, Wendy Calhoun from Justified, and Benito Martinez from House of Cards; Battlefield Hardline follows the story of rookie Miami Police Detective Nick Mendoza as he navigates a morally complex criminal underworld. Told through an episodic format inspired by great TV shows, players are faced with difficult questions as they walk both sides of the law in a bloody story of crime and revenge.
