Get Away With Battlefield Hardline: Robbery

4 weeks ago 111

A new Battlefield™ is coming later this year, and we’re celebrating by keeping the action going in Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. Over the next few months we’ll be giving away previously released expansion packs for both games to anyone playing on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Origin for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. There are also new Community Missions and a whole lot more to get excited about. Let’s take a look at what’s going on right now.

From May 3 to May 10, you can get Battlefield Hardline: Robbery for free. It’s all about the Big Score: how to steal it, or how to stop it. Robbery’s maps and game mode are designed to let criminal teams plan and execute the perfect heist; or, for law enforcement, to get the crooks in cuffs before they can pull it off.

  • Four Expansive Maps: Explore The Docks, Break Pointe, Museum, and Precinct 7. Criminals are ready to do something big – they’re prepped to launch massive heists in snowy cityscapes, murky docks, massive museums, and sunny coastal cities.
  • New Game Mode: Squad Heist: Built as an homage to the beloved Squad Rush in Battlefield 3, this mode combines the combat of Battlefield with the intimate fantasy of a classic heist.
  • New Weapons and Gadgets: Take out your enemies with the Throwing Knife, and check out two new Gadgets: Vehicle Healing and the CS Gas Launcher.
  • Legendary Super Feature: The Legendary Super Feature gives you the opportunity to become one of the truly elite Battlefield Hardline players.

Community Mission: Heist score

Hit the streets in Battlefield Hardline’s Heist mode and collectively score 300,000 points to get a Gold Battlepack. This mission is active between May 3, 2016 9AM PT and May 9, 2016 9AM PT.

This is just the first step on the road…

There’s more, too. Check back here every few weeks to see what’s available for free, and keep an eye on Battlefield’s Twitter channel to find out about upcoming 2X XP events, community missions, and more reasons to join us on the road to Battlefield.

11 Tips for Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal, Now Available for Premium Members

Got your crew ready? Good, you’re going to need them. Enemies are lurking in frozen shadows, planning ambushes behind crumbling mausoleums, and getting ready to attack you from back alleys and federal prisons. Battlefield™ Hardline: Betrayal* is now available for Battlefield Hardline Premium members.

It comes packed with four new maps, two new vehicles, seven new weapons, the ability to customize your outfit and weapons with the Gun Bench, and more. But before you hit the streets, you should take a quick skim of these tips brought together by the devs:

  • On Thin Ice, you can destroy the red pressurized canisters to create holes in the ice. Be careful driving near them, though – vehicles have a tendency to make them burst.
  • In Chinatown, you can set off fireworks in the central alley to create a smokescreen.
  • You can unlock more slots to customize more guns in the Gun Bench by completing Assignments.
  • The dual machine pistols are available for any class and do extreme damage up close, but their effectiveness rapidly falls off at range.
  • Now that various weapons have been released to all classes with the bade game update, you can pair a Mechanic with a sniper rifle, or an Enforcer with an SMG. You might not be as effective as you would with your class weapon, but the option is there.
  • The A8 S fires an arrow rather than a bullet, meaning it’s silent and won’t make you appear on the minimap.
  • Weapon Vouchers can now appear in Gold Battlepacks for all players, so if you can’t live without a particular faction weapon you can now cross your fingers and wish for good luck.
  • In the Gun Bench, don’t forget to customize outfits for each faction AND each class. You wouldn’t want those killer threads to go unseen.
  • In Squad Heist on Chinatown, a new route opens up to allow for trickier flanking maneuvers. Keep your eyes open.
  • The snowmobile can quickly get you from place to place on the wide-open Thin Ice map, and can give you some pretty impressive jump bonuses.
  • Explosive arrows can be very effective against infantry, simply because you have more of them in your arsenal.

Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal is packed with new experiences, and we’re really excited for you to get your hands on it.

Watch Your Back in Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal’s Maps

3 months ago 99

Downed airplanes full of ill-gotten gains. Ramshackle prison cells on Alcatraz Island. Dark cemeteries speckled with crumbling tombstones. Grimy alleys and bright neon lights of Chinatown.

Here’s a peek at each of the maps coming with Battlefield™ Hardline: Betrayal’s*, each inspired by classic settings that you’ll be able to explore next month.

Alcatraz


The crumbling infrastructure of one of the most notorious prisons in the country serves as a battleground for cops to thwart a plan to steal historic artifacts. From the showers to the lighthouse, and all the jail cells in-between, make sure you know which way the enemy’s coming from.

Blow through the walls to create new paths and get the drop on your enemies, but make sure you don’t get imprisoned if an enterprising enemy decides to slam the doors on you. Get your gang together and roll over the enemy on the Rock.

Thin Ice

Warm yourself by the fire raging around a crashed airliner in the freezing forests of the Sierra Nevadas. The frontier loners who live in their log cabins won’t be pleased to see a large-scale law enforcement operation in their rural countryside. This large, vehicle-heavy map offers plenty of opportunities to sight over long distances, so watch your step and stay out of the line of fire.

Hop on a snowmobile and do battle over the downed cash, but be careful of the pressurized oxygen tanks scattered around the frozen lake; if you’re not careful, you might find that the ice is too thin to support your weight.

Cemetery


What could be more fitting for a scene of so much carnage than the gray mausoleums and sorrowful statues of an upstate New York cemetery? The old saying about revenge and digging two graves is applicable here, but don’t forget to bring along a Shovel, one of four new melee weapons provided in the Base Game Update released alongside Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal.

Fight over the Crematorium and a variety of tombs and monuments, including one whose beautiful sculpture of an angel could turn ugly. Stay dry by driving a hearse around the twisty cul-de-sac, or duck into the underground catacombs.

Chinatown

The gritty streets of New York’s Chinatown are the site of a massive crime ring, and when the cops break it up it’s every criminal for himself. The narrow alleys offer precious few places to take cover, but enterprising thieves might find other ways around. Among the garish lights and grand, bizarre pagodas, gather up whatever cash and valuables you can find and make your escape, or get a group together and fight to take over the center of the neighborhood.

You might think that the fireworks, smoke, and narrow spaces in front of storefronts might offer you some concealment or protection from enemies a half a block away, but forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.

Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal is available for Battlefield Hardline Premium members in March 2016.
