EA has shown off new gameplay footage for Battlefield Hardline.
In the multiplayer mode with 32 players called Cops vs. Criminals, robbers have just stolen some loot and the cops are trying to stop them.The demo came packed with explosions, zip lining, police blockades and cranes collapsing into buildings.
This maintains the series’ traditional gameplay, with first-person shooting and vehicles, including cop cars. armored trucks and more.
There appears to be melee elements as well, as one of the robbers wielded a bat.
EA said they wish to maintain Battlefield’s core values in Hardline despite it being a departure from the franchises’ signature warfare settings. The tone of Hardline is akin to “a TV crime drama,” according to EA.
DICE has also launched a beta for Battlefield Hardline at battlefield.com for the PC and PS4. The beta will run at 1080p resolution and run at 60 frames.
Battlefield Hardline will release later this year.
