Just because a game is delayed doesn’t mean new information shouldn’t be shared with the public, and Battlefield Hardline is no exception.
During the San Diego Comic-Con panel, EA revealed that their goal for Hardline is to have a meaningful single-player narrative, something that’s never been the series strong suit.
In hopes of helping them achieve their goal they hired Hollywood actors Eugene Byrd, Kelly Hu and Benito Martinez as well as narrative consultant Wend Calhoun and performance director Bill Johnson.
In addition to this, a video was shown featuring Nick (the protagonist) and an undercover team interrupting crime lord Roark at his cocaine warehouse. Things begin to go awry when Nick is framed, kicked off the force, and sent to prison. Once Nick is released he will travel from the inner cities to desert drug warehouses, confronting criminals and corrupt cops in hopes of clearing his name.
Battlefield Hardline will release for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
