A new trailer for Battlefield: Hardline has dropped, and with it, new details on the game as Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis has been answering some questions via Twitter this morning.
According to Papoutsis, there will be no cooperative game modes in Battlefield: Hardline, which means the main campaign will be a single player only experience.

In regards to the length of the campaign, I asked Papoutsis myself how long it should take players on a normal playthrough to complete the game, as many gamers are accustomed to very short campaigns in FPS games so focused on the multiplayer component. Papoutsis replied with the notion that the campaign offers up a lot of player choice in how you complete the missions, so it’s hard to estimate how long it will take players.
Obviously the length of the campaign doesn’t really affect the quality though, and Visceral seems to be quite happy with what they’ve churned up for the single player portion of the game.
@OnlySP_Nick SP length really depends on how you want to play. There’s a lot of freedom of choice, sorry I can’t be more specific.

It seems the campaign will also be worth multiple playthroughs according to Visceral. If you’ve been paying close attention to the campaign gameplay trailers, there’s a lot of different ways you can tackle each mission which is an exciting thing to see in an franchise tied to mostly linear campaigns.
