Based on feedback for the Battlefield Hardline Beta last June as well as from the Community Test Environment, Visceral, namely GM Steve Papoutsis has taken the liberty to reveal some changes that have been made following the beta.
The two factions of the game, Cops and Criminals now have faction specific weapons. RPGs and mines are now not issued to any class, instead being transformed into Battle Pickups. Papoutsis explained more on the change:
"The other big change is more around explosives and some of the heavy duty weapons. Obviously with Battlefield you have this really solid foundation of rock, paper, scissors gameplay. The heavy weapons counter the vehicles, etc. There’s a great balance that the team has created over the years. We wante…

So first lets review the patch. First right off the bat I give this patch a 7/10. I play BF4 on the Xbox one. Theres alot the patch changed but I'm only going to talk about the things I didn't like
So the main reason Its not a 10/10 is because of weapon balanced.
1. Slow firing weapons still dont have high damage or range compared to high RPM weapons, PDW's are still being out damaged upclose, SR338 is still useless and the shotguns hipfire still sucks. Then correct me if im wrong bf4 still has ADS accuracy delay coming out of sprint. so because of this I took away 2
2. I still am getting killed around corner, still experiencing trade kills, bad hit detection and rubber banding albeit its less common since the patch. I took away 1 for this.
No…Read more >
Earlier today, DICE LA announced that the second phase of testing for Battlefield 4: Final Stand on the Community Test Environment will begin today, October 15, at 3pm PDT. The blog post did not set a release date for the expansion, but instead stated that it's "just around the corner," so it looks like the expansion may release soon after this test phase.
The post details a few more things about Final Stand for those of you who may have missed the first phase of testing about a month ago, such as some the new gadgets coming with the expansion, as well as few new screenshots of Final Stand as well. If you're a Premium PC player and missed out last month, go sign up for the CTE and you might get a chance to help test the expansion this time aroun…Read more >

Battlefield Hardline was conceived some 18 months ago with the goal of reinventing the storytelling wheel through a television-episode presentation and is due to release in early 2015, and this time Visceral promises that the game will not run into the same gameplay misadventure like Battlefield 4 did last 2013.
"What you're basically asking is, 'Is your game going to work?' and the answer is yes, it's gonna work," Hardline creative director Ian Milham told GameRevolution.
Milham added, "We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We've been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they've been doing since then."

On Monday, the anticipated Fall Update for Battlefield 4 was released for all consoles. It's one of biggest non-DLC patches for game so far, coming in at just over a gigabyte in size, and finally adds many of the changes that had gone through testing in Community Test Environment over the last few months.
As it's been mentioned, the patch is big, so I won't be listing the all of the patch notes. Instead, here a few highlights from the official Blog post.
- Player movement has been improved to more closely match that of Battlefield 3, while still maintaining the animation fidelity of Battlefield 4.
- The High Frequency Network Update has now been added to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and is set to default. This makes the server update the client …Read more >
According to Battlefield Hardline creative director Ian Milham, the game may carry the "Battlefield" name but its cops-and-robbers approach is different enough from the "core" Battlefield formula that fans will continue to play the game even after its follow-up is released.
"I think we are making something different from the core of Battlefield that is being made and I think they can live along next to each other," he said. "And whatever gets made next and whenever the next Battlefield comes along, I don't think it necessarily replaces this one."
No new Battlefield titles beyond Hardline have been officially announced, but series producer Patrick Bach said back in October 2013 that a potential Battlefield 5 would need to have "more features. Mo…

We all know that Battlefield has never been about the story of the games but it kind of bothers me that all these conflicts doesnt have a resolution/end.
How the War of 2014 ended? in a cease fire? a peace treaty? its never explained in the story of Battlefield 4, even trough its clear that the US and the Russian Federation are not at peace but also not at war, which makes it more confusing.
I know that the story of Battlefield 4 has two outcomes, the first one: Jin-Jie survives and Russia invades China and the second outcome: Jin-Jie dies, Chang takes the government and the US invades China, however, most players agreed that the second outcome is the canonical one as seen in Final Stand were we can see the early logos of the Pan-Asian Coali…Read more >

Earlier today, Visceral released a Battlefield Hardline trailer for the new Hotwire gamemode revealed at Gamescom earlier this year. The trailer showcases some of the high speed action the gamemode is set to deliver, plus a glimpse at some new weapons, attachments, and vehicles. Check it out here:
Along with this, Thad Sasser, the lead Multiplayer Designer over at Visceral has also put up a new blog post about the Hotwire mode as well, detailing the "10 things you should know before you burn some rubber."

Electronic Arts announced that Grantland contributor and author of video game novel Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter, Tom Bissell - who also wrote for Gears of War: Judgment - is one of the writers for Battlefield Hardline.
Bissell says he was growing bored with contemporary military shooters and was initially skeptical about writing for Battlefield Hardline. However, when he was informed that EA was aiming for Battlefield Hardline's story to be tonally similar to Elmore Leonard novels like Out of Sight, he wanted in. "I've always viewed him as the single greatest genre writer in the history of American literature," Bissell says.
Bissell explains hows Hardline's story plays out like a TV show in some ways, adding that it wont be groundbreaking, …

On Monday, DICE finally unveiled Battlefield 4's fifth and final expansion pack, Final Stand. Taking place in the arctic environments of northern Russia, players will encounter the beginnings of technologies and weapons later to be seen in a certain 22nd century war.
As stated by Kristoffer Bergqvist & David Sirland on a recent Battlelog post:
With Final Stand, we knew from the start that we wanted to evolve the Battlefield experience and offer weapons and vehicles that behave differently than anything else on the battlefield. Taking place on the arctic landscape of Russia, where the scientists of today are experimenting with technology that will define the battlefields of tomorrow (Battlefield 2142, anyone?), Final Stand will deliver four maps…

The official Battlefield Twitter account just released a short 17-second teaser trailer for a new game mode called Rescue in Battlefield Hardline, which looks to be a mode where the objective is for the cops to save the hostages being held by the criminals.
The teaser is not on YouTube, so it can only be viewed on this Tweet. For those who aren't able to view the tweet, the teaser shows a night map taking place in an industrial area with the police surrounding the criminals as they try to find the hostages. The teaser ends with a police sniper ready to take a shot at a criminal Mechanic before it cuts to title screen.
The full trailer is set to come out later this day (August 12, 2014) and the blog post will be updated then.

Ian Milham, Creative Director for Battlefield Hardline, provides some new details on the variety of choices players will be able to make in the Battlefield Hardline singleplayer campaign.
In the past weeks, gamers have had a chance to learn quite a bit about Battlefield Hardline’s Multiplayer. We’ve had a great beta and that has brought in a ton of data and feedback which is making the game more awesome every day. Thad Sasser, our Lead MP Designer, has been keeping you up to date on what we’ve learned and more importantly how we’re making MP better.

Yes I feel like one of "those" posts and I have a feeling the responses are gonna be "It'll be camos!" or "A color book!" (Ugh! I remember that one from BF3), but I'll just post some possibilities and would like to hear yours (Including the two mentioned on top).
I have this unusual feeling it may have to do with the AN-94 because it was seen in the US vs. EU tournament but was nowhere to be seen in Second Assault. I kinda am hoping for it to be the AN 94 or maybe another weapon set (Maybe a BF3 homage with the M417 and whatnot). While I am crossing my fingers for it and it seems probable, it's probably not likely.
Another one that I have this feeling for is, you guessed it, paints and camos. It seems like an impossible amount of paints and …Read more >
EA has announced a month-long event called "Battlefest", a festival built for Battlefield gamers. It will be filled with weekly rewards, contests and in-game content. There will also be prizes given out, including graphics cards and three gaming PCs, provided by AMD.
Battlefest is just a small token of DICE's appreciation and commitment to Battlefield 4.
Battlefest will kick off with a double XP event from July 12-13, so if you need to level up your game, now is a good time to start or get back into the game. The 12th also marks the first day of the daily contest (known as Battleshots), where DICE is asking you to send them a screenshot in Battlefield 4 based on a different theme requirement (which will be specified in each Battleshot).

In all these Zombie Apocalypse in forms of entertainment, you never find out where these zombies come from. Dinosaurs are back and they are here to the Earth and the Military are going to stop it. They will be civilians and you have to rescue and evacuate them. You kill civilains you'll recieve negative score.

It seems that EA has delayed Battlefield 4: Final Stand just as they had done with Dragon's Teeth which was supposed to be released in at least June 2014 for Premium members and has a still unannounced release date.
While an exact date for Final Stand was never announced, it was announced that it would release in Summer 2014. Now, however, EA has replaced "Summer 2014" with "TBD", meaning that EA does not even believe it will release this Summer and does not want consumers to believe otherwise. -- 20:48, July 2, 2014 (UTC)Read more >

The General Manager of DICE, Karl-Magnus Troeddson has revealed in an interview with Eurogamer why Battlefield: Bad Company 3 was not the next installment in the series following the announcement of Battlefield Hardline.
"We hear those comments as well and see them," DICE boss Karl-Magnus Troedsson told Eurogamer. "There were some people who were saying, "why are you building Hardline? You should build Bad Company 3 instead."
The reason Bad Company 3 is not in development is because "DICE isn't sure what people really liked about Bad Company, and thus isn't sure how to go about making a sequel".
"We take all this into account when we think about the future, and do franchise strategy," Troedsson said. "But there's one thing that lingers with Bad Company…

Since the Era of the Modern Military Shooters is clearly about to end, i was thinking that theres a high possibility that Battlefield 5 will be set in the Future, you may say that it would be Battlefield 2143 but since EA wants major installments in the Franchise (Hardline is the exception) to secure major sells, is going to be called Battlefield 5, The Star Wars Battlefront Reboot is another story since that game is not targeted to Titanfall & future Advanced Warfare players (i hope for the love of the Maker), i feel EA will want they own Titanfall/Advanced Warfare like-Battlefield for that audience.Read more >

I have not played the game yet since I play on xbox :( but i've been watching alot of gameplay from the game where I'm comfortable giving my first impression.
So overall I like what I see. As a big fan of BF and COD this game looks great to me. Visually I'd be ok with this but I hope the graphics improve. The game seems to run great no problems from the people whose gameplay i've watch. Vehicles can be damaged by guns so I'm very happy with that since I wanted that implemented. This maps seem to be designed on a smaller scale compared to BF4 maps and seem to be also focusing on fast paced close quarters map design gameplay. I cant confirm this but the guns seem to kill faster. What I mean by this is the map it self to me seems like a small …Read more >
