Visceral Games™, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio and makers
of the critically-acclaimed Dead Space series, today unveiled Battlefield™
Hardline, taking the award-winning Battlefield franchise
to a new world filled with new ways to play. Coming October 21 in North
America, Battlefield Hardline puts players right in the middle of
the war on crime in the gritty and glamorous streets of Los Angeles and
Miami, allowing gamers to live out their fantasy of being a cop or a
criminal. The fantasy begins today in a bold move – Visceral Games is
making Battlefield Hardline playable now for the public in a
closed multiplayer beta on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment
system and on Origin™ for PC. Players can sign up for a chance to play
Delivering an all-new canvas for the best-in-class first person action
gameplay the Battlefield franchise is known for, Battlefield
Hardline sees Visceral Games bring its critically-acclaimed single
player storytelling pedigree to provide an engaging story in a setting
reminiscent of modern TV crime dramas. In multiplayer, fans will feel
the thrill of the heist or the satisfaction of the ultimate bust with
new twists including new modes, weapons, vehicles and gadgets.
"This is an awesome opportunity to take one of gaming’s most exciting
franchises in a new direction," said Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and
General Manager of Visceral Games. "The cops and criminals fantasy is a
great new backdrop for Battlefield and allows us to introduce an
impactful story, while still maintaining that intense multiplayer action
that fans expect. Best of all, the beta allows lots of fans to jump in
and play immediately."
Karl Magnus Troedsson, Vice President and Group General Manager of DICE
and Visceral, added, "We’re always looking for new, exciting directions
to take the Battlefield franchise, but it has to be a great
experience that’s driven by passion and stays true to the heritage of Battlefield.
Visceral has a great track record of creating emotionally charged
stories with unforgettable atmosphere and we’re excited to see them
bring this approach to single player and to see how they add to
Battlefield’s best in class multiplayer action. Hardline is fun,
fresh and yet still very much a Battlefield game."
Powered by DICE’s award-winning Frostbite 3 game engine, Battlefield
Hardline lets players trigger jaw-dropping Levolution events as they
shoot out subterranean grow-labs, blow open bank vaults, or tear apart
the streets of Los Angeles. Introducing a new arsenal of guns and
gadgets, including stun guns, zip lines, and grappling hooks, players
take on a bold new level of strategy as both cops and criminals on every
map. Maintaining the epic vehicular combat fans have come to expect from Battlefield,
Battlefield Hardline ushers in a fast and fresh urban approach to
vehicles with loot-laden getaway motorcycles and nimble police choppers
to navigate sprawling skyscrapers.
Coming October 21 of this year in North America, Battlefield Hardline
will be available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system,
Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft,
PC via Origin™, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and the
