Adding to the mountain of Battlefield: Hardline leaks, today seven minutes of gameplay footage from Visceral’s title has appeared online.
The trailer confirms the game’s cops versus robbers setting, and also goes into detail about the single-player campaign and multiplayer modes.
Multiplayer will feature four modes: Heist, which is similar to Payday except the police are players, with one team of robbers trying to blow open a bank vault and escape while the other team try to stop them as the police; Rescue, which sees SWAT specialists having to rescue hostages from a robbery gone wrong; Hotwire, where cops must chase car thieves across large open environments, and finally there’s Blood Money, where cops and criminals must shoot it out for control of a large stash of cash.
Hardline‘s single-player will be split into episodes, complete with cliffhangers, and sees you take control of a cop called Nick who finds himself stranded between both sides of the law. A hit cast from shows such as Justified, The Americans, and House of Cards will voice the game’s main characters. Visceral’s new smart AI allows each episode to be played multiple times in several different ways, which should hopefully fix the issues that preview entries have had.
EA has promised to share more about the game on June 9 during its E3 2014 press conference.
