Battlefield Hardline, the brand new “cops-and-robbers” themed Battlefield had a gameplay video leaked today (which was subsequently taken down), which detailed game modes, multiplayer and singleplayer.
The leak came from “BF Hardline” on YouTube and it is unclear whether or not this was an official channel. The gameplay, however, looked very legit and as a result, was taken down very rapidly. However, having seen the video myself, I can tell you that Battlefield: Hardline features heists, elaborate shoot outs between crooks and cops online and a return to environment destruction. Weapons include tazers, sawn-off shotguns and a police scanner that will reveal information about the world.It’s fair to say that Battlefield Hardline is looking like a fun shake up that the Battlefield series needed.
The game is promising a “leap forward in singleplayer”, featuring writing from the House of Cards and Justified producers with each mission ending on a massive cliffhanger to keep you coming back for more. The game’s story is about a Miami detective named, Nick Mendozza, who is on the hunt for revenge after his former partner betrayed him. The campaign will feature encounters with crooked cops, ruthless gangsters and everything in between and also looks to give you the chance to play the story how you like. Do you play as the crooked cop or the straight-laced police officer? It’s your decision. Could this mean we’ll have a highly entertaining “cop/criminal” story like The Departed? Probably not but hopefully it’ll be fun to play.
Again, we apologise for the lack of video but EA was swift to remove it. We’ll have more on this news as it develops. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for more updates.
