Sponsored Video + 5 Ways Battlefield Hardline Breaks the Mold
EA's Battlefield Hardline is not your typical FPS; it's not even the same old Battlefield. As such, we've compiled a list of the top 5 ways Battlefield Hardline distinguishes itself from the competition and even its previous iterations. But first, watch the video!
Urban Fun in the Sun
Set in Miami and L.A., Battlefield Hardline players get to enjoy highly destructible urban environments beneath swaying palms and on sun-drenched streets. What's more, these stunning playgrounds of the Sunshine and Golden States aren't decimated by a zombie apocalypse or a new world war; they are living, breathing city centers full of interesting locations such as an underground grow lab, the inside of a bank vault, and even a swanky car dealership.
Cops and Robbers
The massive pitched battles of prior Battlefield games that pit opposing military forces against each other have been put on hold in favor of gritty crime drama. Whether in single-player or multiplayer modes, Hardline players have the chance to fight through creative scenarios where most-wanted criminals take on the authorities. It's an interesting take on Battlefield that keeps gameplay fresh and engaging.
A Rich Narrative
The Battlefield series' bread and butter has always been amazing multiplayer gameplay, but now the team at Visceral Games, the studio responsible for the heart-pounding Dead Space, has crafted a single-player experience that rivals the very best single-player FPS experiences out there.
Battlefield Hardline wouldn't be doing its name justice without incredible multiplayer action. Thankfully, the game has it in spades. Best of all, a handful of new multiplayer modes such as Hotwire and Heist nicely complement Battlefield standbys.
In addition to the weapons we all know and love, tools such as stun guns, zip lines, and grappling hooks have been thrown into the mix. These game-changing tactical devices are available on all maps, leading to new and clever ways for players to challenge each other.
