Here is Every Map and Mode in Battlefield Hardline

Visceral Games’ upcoming Battlefield title is set to release in a couple months. EA has released more info on the game’s multiplayer component. Battlefield Hardline will launch with 7 game modes and 9 maps. Below you’ll find the list of maps and modes, along with their descriptions. Sorry no Rush mode in this version.

Modes:

Conquest

A Battlefield staple, Conquest is based on the idea of controlling a base. Capture a base by standing near a flag on foot, in a vehicle or in the skies – if your team owns more flags than the enemy you’ll slowly reduce their tickets, which are their ability to respawn. The first team to run out of tickets loses.

Team Deathmatch

Team Deathmatch is infantry only and has the easiest objective to understand: shoot the enemy team more than they shoot you.

Heist

Heist is all about pulling off that big job or that perfect score. The criminals are trying to infiltrate a cash-filled vault, and the cops must regulate them. Once the criminals break in, they have to nab two bags of cash and jam out with them back to each of the two base points.

Blood Money

A huge pile of loot has been intercepted in transit. The criminals are fighting to steal the money, while the cops are trying to secure it as evidence. Each team is trying to secure the money in their team’s vault – but it’s not safe there. Raid the enemy team’s vault to help your team score the most money.

Hotwire

The criminals are trying to steal a list of marked cars while the cops are trying to repossess them. Use your driving skills to catch up with the enemy, and bring a friend riding shotgun to take them down.

Rescue

Rescue is one of two competitive modes. This is a cop-centric mode that lets you step into the boots of a SWAT operative tasked with saving innocent lives from the hands of criminals. Lead your team carefully into dangerous environments and get the hostages back to safety. Be careful though, because there are no second chances in this mode.

Crosshair

This is the second competitive mode. In Crosshair, a former criminal turned state’s witness is on the run from his former crew. The criminals are trying to erase the VIP’s face from the world, while the cops are trying to get him out safely. Once again, there are no second chances – one death and you are out for the match.

Maps:

Downtown

The heart of downtown Los Angeles is a jumping environment – the streets, the buildings, the cars – are all open to criminal deeds. The police have shut down the city center, and a heated confrontation is about to break out.

Bank Job

Money is the root of all evil. The criminals are plotting a ruthless assault on a high-security bank vault. But, they messed up and triggered a silent alarm and the police are jamming to the scene of the crime.

The Block

What looks like a liquor store and bail bonds office, is actually a front. This is home to a notorious criminal ring. The police know better than to enter The Block without backup.

Dust Bowl

The small desert town of Joad is off the beaten path and well-known for meth trafficking problems. The cops have had enough and are on the scene to shut it all down.

Hollywood Heights

A mansion high in the Hollywood Hills looks ripe for a little crime. The criminals have started a wildfire in the nearby hills to distract the police. Do you think that’ll work?

Growhouse

The cops located an illegal underground marijuana grow operation. The cops are raiding the place, but the criminals aren’t going down without a fight. After all, this is precious cargo for them.

Derailed

The industrial side of Los Angeles is home to many shady dealings. A criminal ring has set up shop in the warehouses and scrapyards, where they’re trying to make that money from illegal doings.

Riptide

A drug smuggler’s haven, this high-tech and expensive island crib is being ransacked by the police. A chain of small islands is connected by bridges and waterways, providing multiple access to it.

Everglades

 

Battlefield Hardline will launch on March 17, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Battlefield 5 Set For 2016 Release

In a recent comment from EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, at the 2014 UBS Global Technology Conference (via Gamespot), Jorgensen talked about having already seen Battlefield 5, and that it’s a “fun, new Battlefield.” While the upcoming installment in the Battlefield franchise “Battlefield Hardline” focuses on cops and robbers, Battlefield 5 is going to take us back to a more familiar military setting.

Although Battlefield 5 isn’t set to release until 2016, according to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This allows more time for Battlefield 4 to continue growing and be fixed. While also giving Battlefield Hardline a chance to give gamers a fresh take on the franchise. And much like other games such as Assassin’s Creed, NBA 2K, Madden, or COD which are pushed out almost every year, EA felt that waiting until to 2016 to release Battlefield 5 would allow players to catch their breath from the fatigued franchise.

 

 

Extensive details on Battlefield 5 have yet to be released, but Dice is promising “More features. More extras. More destruction.” All of that according to an article on IGN. This all sounds like positive news as EA and Visceral games prepare for the Battlefield Hardline launch set for March. Even though Battlefield Hardline was delayed, EA is confident in it working properly day one, unlike the issues with Battlefield 4 at launch.

Many gamers may have lost hope in EA aside from some of it’s sports franchises. I for one though still believe that EA can and will continue to improve. It’s been shown with their constant dedication to fixing Battlefield 4. And with recent games such as Dragon Age dropping, I have nothing but confidence in EA. I understand that Bio Ware was involved in Dragon Age, much like Visceral was in Dead Space and is going to be in Battlefield Hardline. This just shows you gamers, that EA is going to push and work hard to bring you the best games possible!

Be on the look out for more Battlefield Hardline coverage and all things EA right here!

DICE And EA Games Made One Of The Most Beloved FPS Ever; But Its Glitches Are Killing EA Stocks

You all know me. I’m one of the most vocal gamers in the world. Perhaps many have ‘googled’ my name next to Battlefield and DICE in the past and seen my history with the company and their sometimes false and misleading advertising. This passion on reporting about their games comes from the fact that I myself am a Battlefield fan – who guessed it? Since Battlefield 1942 I haven’t missed a beat yet, and yet I was the first to call them out on what I viewed as a string of shoddy releases.

However, I’m about to celebrate my birthday in a few days and the item I’m most excited about treating myself with is Battlefield 4 on the next-generation platform. All of the glitches have not stopped my renewed optimism for the series, knowing that DICE has done something impressive and special with their next-generation iteration of BF. Unfortunately, EA Games and DICE are having a hard time getting their many, many glitches and issues fixed for Battlefield 4. Their stock values are suffering from this. As a gamer I am prepared to bear with them while this time of moaning continues onward. I am hoping for the best and I am rooting for DICE. Perhaps the most unlikely gamer to be rooting for a company that has gone out of their way in the past to talk smack about me in the public spectrum.

What is it about gamers and being abusive to developers anyways? Oh yeah, we covered that yesterday in a massive article (featuring indie dev Gabby Taylor).

The bottom line is this – EA Games and DICE have had a lot of patience from fans with these glitches and patches and have even announced they will no longer develop DLC until the game is fixed, but the time is running out and the clock is ticking. I’m not the only one who still hasn’t booted up the game yet. It’s the holiday season. This is the time for DICE to make or break themselves with fixing these problems in terms of a large wave of people about to flood their servers (or cry trying). Let’s all join together and hope they can pull it off as BF4 has become easily one of the most loved shooters of all time (despite what you may have heard last night on that corporate cheese show). Good luck guys, I know you can do this.

PS4 Pre-Order Launch Bundles on Amazon

Amazon is now accepting pre-orders for PS4 launch bundles. You can now pre-order the PS4 with a game, and a 1 year subscription on PS Plus. For example, instead of paying $399 for a PS4 you can pay $499 for: PS4, Battlefield 4, and 1 year of PS Plus. To buy these separated, it would cost $510 so you’re only saving 10 bucks. 10 bucks isn’t a lot but if your going to buy Battlefield 4 and PS Plus anyways, you might as well get this bundle.

There are other bundles available too. You can get the exact same deal mentioned above but instead of Battlefield 4, you get Killzone Shadow Fall. Also available is a PS4 with Knack, and PS4 with Watch dogs. You can decide which bundle you prefer or maybe you would rather just wait and buy them separate, its up to you.

Rumor: Battlefield 4 Beta Date Leaked

The user who leaked this image says that he can not say who or how he got this image. But he claims that it is legit and that he got it from an inside source that he will not mention.

Excerpt from Press: “According to this image, the beta will start on September 24 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Keep in mind that the Battlefield 3 demo was released on September 29, so this may be real.”

The image looks very professional and also appears like something that EA would make. We will not know for sure if this is real or not, but could possibly find out during E3. You can decide for yourself if you thing that this is real or not. RealGamerNewz will keep you posted.
