Battlefield Hardline is finally on the shelves, and developer Visceral has proved doubters wrong by delivering one of the strongest Battlefield experiences. The main campaign follows a detective by the name of Nick Mendoza as he busts baddies and chases crooked cops.
What’s different about the story is the TV show style presentation that keeps you subtly hooked to the experience. You may as well be binge watching Battlefield Hardline on Netflix, because you’ll want to binge the episodic content from start to finish.
The multiplayer adds a completely new layer of fun to Battlefield Hardline, allowing you to take the same frantic fun to a lobby full of real players. Heist mode allows you to rob bank vaults, while the opposing police team attempts to bust your score. Blood Money has two opposing sides trying rob each other’s vault, Crosshair will have each side fighting over a state’s witness and Rescue will have the SWAT team trying to save innocents from the opposing side. There’s some nice new modes to mix things up, but true Battlefield fans can also enjoy some of their old favourites, such as Conquest and Team Deathmatch.
If you’re still on the fence about Battlefield Hardline, then check out our official review. But as far as I’m concerned it’s a no-brainer. The Battlefield name represents the best in FPS combat, and Hardline mixes things up enough to keep the formula fresh. Check out the video above and see the beautiful cops and robbers action come to life.
