[Update]EA’s Battlefield Hardline Game Details Leaked – Game Modes, Vehicles, Weapons, Unlocks Detailed


Update: EA has officially confirmed that Battlefield
Hardline would be unveiled at E3 2014 on 9th June 2014. They have
launched a new website which can be accessed at – http://www.battlefield.com/hardline.

It has been rumored since a while now that EA’s game developer, Viscreal
are developing a new Battlefield game that’s centered around squad and
police based combat. While EA hasn’t officially announced the game yet
since they are keeping things in wrap for E3 next month, koenv blog have leaked a massive set of details which confirm the existence of the game titled, Battlefield Hardline.

EA’s Battlefield Hardline Game Details Leaked

Internally codenamed Havana, Battlefield Hardline is being developed
by Visceral Studios, the same studio created some great titles such as
Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno. Built with the latest Frostbite 3 engine
which was initially developed DICE, the game would be aimed towards
closed corridors gameplay however the addition of vehicles as suggested
from the leaked details suggest otherwise and Battlefield Hardline seems
to become a hit for the audience if it maintains the balance of
infantry based combat. While the majority of development work would be
handled by Visceral, Ghost Games and DICE would also lend in some help
for the development of the game. This also confirms why Ghost Games
isn’t developing a Need For Speed game moving away from their annual
release cycle.

Well let’s go on with the details, Our gaming writer, Rizwan recently posted an article which
showed that the game has been spotted in the latest Battlelog update.
The post confirmed that the title would be multiplat and built for both
current generation and next generation platforms such as PC, PS3, PS4,
Xbox 360, Xbox One which is a good thing. The majority of the game
details come straight from Koenv’s blog
which show some footage of the game. The game seems to revolve inside
City blocks with access to several areas. We have already seen how well
Frostbite scales in closed door and open world environments if we look
at Operation Metro, Siege of Shanghai and then move towards the larger
maps such as Caspian Border, Silk Road, etc.
Two of the game modes have
been detailed which include Blood Money and Heist. If you’ve played
Payday: The Heist, then you can expect a similar gameplay in the heist
mode but this does bring up the question whether there would be an
option to select between the good guys (S.W.A.T / Police) and the bad
guys (Thieves) giving each faction a variety of different weapons and
access to vehicles.

This is confirmed from two emblems that are also leaked, one includes
SWAT badge while the other is the THIEVES badge. There are several
heist based awards and medals listed on the source which point out to
the regular heist styled games but details regarding blood money are
unknown and it can revolve around robbing banks then leaving the area
safe and sound which is similar to what Titanfall does at the end of the
game where the loosing team runs away from the locating while the other
team has to hunt down the remaining survivors.

Several weapons are listed which include modern day combat rifles,
pistols and machineguns. The addition of melee weapons such as Shield,
Bat, Injections, Police Baton, Crossbow, etc suggest the type of
gameplay to expect from Hardline. Listed also are several unlocks for
the weapons.

The most interesting thing that’s leaked are the vehicles which point
out to race and chase mechanics in the game with different types of
transport such as Helicopters which might be used to land and escape
during a heist. There are also several bikes, trucks, vans which are
primarily used during robberies.  There are several unlocks for the
vehicles too but we don’t know what type of vehicles would be
categorized to both factions.
The leak is really interesting and is probably the closest thing we
might get before launch details during E3. Battlefield Hardline is
anticipated to be unveiled at E3 2014 which begins early next month.
