Confirming reports that Dead Space studio Visceral Games has been working on a police-themed addition to the popular Battlefield series, several bits and pieces of leaked artwork have revealed the game as Battlefield: Hardline.

Following the leak, publisher EA has since activated an official teaser website at battlefield.com/hardline, confirming the game's existence and scheduling the official unveiling at its E3 2014 press conference on June 9th.

We seemingly already know a whole lot more than that though, as an assortment of assets were discovered in the bowels of Battlefield's Battlelog web portal, including the game's logo, weapons and unlocks, and even player class details.

Polygon credits Better Battlelog forums, Battlefield Daily Twitter, and Koen Vlaswinkel with the finds, and indicates that the game is planned for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and will pit a team of SWAT, against a band of Thieves.

Four of the game's classes are outlined as Enforcer, Mechanic, Operator, and Professional, and game modes Blood Money and Heist are mentioned.

Vehicles include several armoured variants and what appear to be fast cars, as well as helicopters. Weapons and accessories include an assortment of automatic weapons, tasers, a riot shield, and a bunch of unconventional items such as deployable cameras, laser trip mines, breaching charges, and a grappling hook.

This is why they are bring out Riot shield into Battlefield 4 to test it out. I wonder if it will be similar to Pay Day 2?

I wonder if we will need to wait 8 months for Heist...

I don't know why people are even considering to play another Battlefield.

The only interesting part is BF:Hardline is being done by Visceral Games (Deadspace series) and not by DICE. So Battlefield may be entering a CoD development style (i.e. Infinity Ward and Treyarch alternating games).

I suspect Hardlines will play more like Bad Company 2.

I get that people are cautious about another BF, especially after BF4 (which didn't work on my pc until about the third expansion) but if this game is even a little bit like SWAT 4 I will fellate someone to play it early.

For now I'll just have to make do attempting to self fellate while I replay SWAT 4.

As much as I would love something like SWAT 4 I can't see the single player slow and careful gameplay translating well into multiplayer, especially with large numbers of people. SWAT 4 was fantastic but the levels were usually small (and better for it- the convenience store was magic) and would not work with gung ho tactics.

Battlefield: Counter Strike?

Actually it is more like the predecessor to CS - Action Quake 2 which pitted the SWAT against the Reservoir Dogs.

Lights.
Camera.
Action!

Oh how I miss rounds starting like that.

Originally CS was fast paced like AQ2 but features were slowly removed and you have the turtle paced game of today. Urban Terror (Quake 3 mod) was a good successor to AQ2 mostly but what UrbT lacked the most was some of the really whacky maps of that Quake 2 era.

Smart move to try BF franchise in a Cops'v'robbers environment. The BF/modern warfare setting was getting stale.

Still think the next BF should be future combat. Or WW1 lolz

Definitely should do a 2142 sequel at some point. Bring back titan mode but make sure it's not buggy this time.

Posted 03:38pm 28/5/14
Wouldn't 2142 be the same at Battlefront but with Star Wars?

I made the promise that if BF4 was s*** (it was piss f***en poor) I won't buy anything else from EA, DICE, or anything with Battlefield slapped on it.

Fresh format recently, no Origin, no BF, no Battlelog, nothing. It feels like I kicked a 40 year smoking habit. I suggest everyone does the same.

I thank EA for releasing Origin (in hindsight) because now I can very easily identify which games are theirs.

Yeah, I'm mad. I'm mad that even with display after display of ineptitude from EA (Sim City, most Battlefields, etc) that they are still in business. Die please.

You should be mad you got suckered into BF4. I feel mad for being suckered into Sim Village.

Ehhh, not feeling it. Just looks like Battlefield 4 with skin changes. Best question so far is why do the SWAT have access to gatling gun helicopters and jets?
