First Battlefield Hardline Expansion Is Called Criminal Activity


Battlefield Hardline came out earlier this year with mixed to positive reaction. No longer was it about soldiers in a war battling it out against each other, but about cops and robbers pulling off or thwarting high-stakes robberies. It looks like the game’s first expansion will swing in the criminals’ favor, as Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity has been officially announced by EA. The reveal is accompanied by a trailer, highlighting exactly what maps players can expect to be playing with this June.

Code Blue is an urban stage centered around a hexagonal building host to the “Blue Eclipse Nightclub & Lounge.” Keeping true to its namesake, the color blue is a strong motif that highlights its many narrow choke points for combat. The Beat is a map that holds play around low-incoming LA housing. Local storefronts and a gas station will be key to the level’s creativity, alongside driveable lowrider cars. Black Friday is, aptly, located in the Palm Court Mall. Looks like a perfect place for run-and-gun firefights, if you ask me! Finally, Backwoods looks like an abandoned lumber mill. Lots of broken bridges, camper vehicles and bundles of logs will provide plenty of cover.

The aforementioned maps, 4 new weapons, 2 new attachments, 2 new vehicles, 6 new masks, a new game mode and a powerful new gadget are the main highlights of this new Battlefield Hardline expansion. As always, those with Battlefield Hardline Premium will get two weeks early access in June. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear more about its ongoing DLC content during EA’s press conference during E3 2015, even if it comes alongside the announcement of a new title for 2016.

Battlefield Hardline is currently available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
