Battlefield 4 And Battlefield Hardline Giving DLC For Free

Electronic Arts plan to announce this year's new Battlefield game on Friday, but before then are shaking hands with Battlefield players, kissing their babies, and blasting free DLC at them out of air cannons. The old Battlefield 4 multiplayer Dragon's Tooth DLC and cops & robbers spin-off Battlefield Hardline's multiplayer Robbery DLC are both free to keep forever if you grab 'em by next Tuesday,…

Battlefield Hardline Getaway DLC Legging It This Month

"Do people even still play Hardline?" I wondered, having seen EA announce a release date for the third lump of Battlefield: Hardline [official site] DLC. "I thought everyone stuck with to Battlefield 4." So I checked and yep, they mostly have: Hardline's PC playercount is less than 10% of the older BF4's. But hey, if you're one of those 2,000-odd folks playing murdercops and robbers…

Battlefield: Hardline Trailer Launches Rockets, Cars, Game

Whatever to do¬†about a game like Battlefield: Hardline [official site]? I had a lot of hope for it to begin with, slowly chipped away by a disappointing beta and unenthusiastic previews. It was a great opportunity for either some introspection on the nature of law enforcement (unlikely) or a 70s buddy cop style tale about half a city getting blown up to stop some robbers.…

EA Offers Up Battlefield Hardline Premium Details

Is a trailer really a trailer when it's actually just different bits of a still image of a man with some particle effects? I'd say that was closer to those bonus Catchphrase rounds where they gradually reveal the image for contestants to guess until one of them says "Uh, is is Battlefield Hardline Premium?" and Roy Walker shouts "RIIIIIIGHT!" even though it's not a catchphrase.

Battlefield Hardline Multiplayer Open Beta Next Week

Several years ago, I had a meeting with EA and pitched Battlefield: The Thin Blue Line, an FPS adaptation of the '90s Rowan Atkinson sitcom. [Did you now? -ed.] Players would engage in gossip, give young shoplifters stern talking-tos, and even bop a yob with their truncheon. The final mission would be to sneak a big frilly bra into DI Grim's office during a surprise…

Battlefield Hardline Slips An Awful Lot

Battlefield Hardlines, originally slated for 21st October this year, has now been given a significantly later release date. The Space Year 2015. "Early" 2015. On a slippy day for EA, which also saw the announcement of Dragon Age: Inquisition sliding into November, DICE's cops-n-robbers reinvention of the Battlefield series seems to have taken a much more serious hit. Apparently in response to what maybe wasn't…

Battlefield Hardlimes To Get Another Beta This Fall

Battlefield Hardlimes' surprise E3 beta is officially over and done with, or in military speak (that I have learned exclusively from videogames), Charlie Mike Oscar Bravo Rhinoceros Chimpanzee Overalls Tuba. Given how Battlefield 4's launch turned out, however, I'm quite glad to hear that another beta will be happening this fall. Maybe... maybe this one will finally launch in actual, factual ship shape?

Cop Ops: Battlefield Hardline Singleplayer To Be Less Linear

Battlefield Hardlimes might feel eerily similar to Battlefield 4 in ways that call into question its worthiness as a full release, but it's important to keep in mind that we haven't seen everything yet. And while Battlefield definitely isn't known for its memorable singleplayer campaigns, there is potential here. For one, it won't be Just Another War Story because cops and robbers. And for two,…

Despite Hardline, EA Says Battlefield Not Being Annualized

Upon hearing EA claim that Battlefield will not succumb to annual sequelitis like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, and their ilk, I was immediately reminded of that time it snapped up the domains for Battlefields 13-20. I'm not saying it's indicative of anything, just that I can't help but think of it, given the context. But yes, despite the fact that we're now on our…

Testy: DICE Considering Early Access For Battlefield

In an interview with Game Informer, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson stated that the beta process for future Battlefield titles may resemble an Early Access release. "We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access]...It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of…

EA Runs Out Of Plugs, Leaks BF Hardline E3 Trailer Itself

You think you know lines? You think you know their relative structural integrity? Newflash: YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT LINES. Battlefield Hardline? That's where it's at. Hardest lines in the biz. The business of lines, to be clear. Also it's about police and robbers, and now - finally, after roughly 167 leaks - EA's seen fit to release an official trailer. It's got a release…

Hardline Miami: The Next Battlefield Is About Police

There's gonna be another Battlefield. Of course there's gonna be another Battlefield. The sun rises and falls, the grass sways innocently as worms make sweet, sweet wormlove below, and virtual men keep on shooting each other. Cut, print, put on repeat until sun collapses and time ends. Battlefield: Hardline, however, at least looks a little different. While EA's revealed very little at this point ("tune…
