Cops vs. Criminals, Battlefield style.
A security truck loaded with cash lays abandoned in a parking garage, and you only have seconds to cram as much cash as possible into your backpack before the cops arrive. Stray bills flutter behind you as you make a mad dash for the elevators. When you get to the roof a teammate jumps on the zipline, but you choose a more direct route and swan-dive over the edge of the building. By the time your chute deploys, bullets are whizzing by far too close for comfort, and the moment you hit the pavement it's a straight-out sprint to the getaway vehicle.
And that's when the building starts to crumble.
This is just a taste of Battlefield Hardline. It's also a fantastic example of why this game needs to be on your radar.
Battlefield Hardline is a collaboration of two highly regarded game studios at EA that builds on the incredible visual and gameplay technology introduced in Battlefield 4, and introduces a new storyline that feels like a primetime crime drama. The levels twist through the detective story like episodes of a TV show, and highpoints of the story will play out in huge memorable gameplay moments. Epic car chases and intense gunfights? Yes please.
On the one hand, you've got a multiplayer experience that's expected from a Battlefield game. Elements like destructible environments, modern-day weaponry, high-performance vehicles and dozens of players all over the world fighting in the urban streets of the US, now with new additions like high-tech gadgets to spice up the action. And on the other, you have the powerful storytelling from the writers and game designers behind the incredible Dead Space trilogy. This is one crime drama that you won't be able to stop playing until the climactic conclusion.
