'Battlefield Hardline' (ALL) Robbery DLC Details

Battlefield: Hardline switches the franchise standard of military themed action for a more urban environment with the player taking part in a police-oriented adventure.

Battlefield Hardline puts players right in the middle of the war on crime in the gritty and glamorous streets of Los Angeles and Miami, allowing gamers to live out their fantasy of being a cop or a criminal.

Delivering an all-new canvas for the best-in-class first person action gameplay the Battlefield franchise is known for, Battlefield Hardline sees Visceral Games bring its critically-acclaimed single player storytelling pedigree to provide an engaging story in a setting reminiscent of modern TV crime dramas. In multiplayer, fans will feel the thrill of the heist or the satisfaction of the ultimate 6bust with new twists including new modes, weapons, vehicles and gadgets.

Battlefield Hardline, powered by the Frostbite 3 engine, lets players trigger jaw-dropping Levolution events as they shoot out subterranean grow-labs, blow open bank vaults, or tear apart the streets of Los Angeles. Introducing a new arsenal of guns and gadgets, including stun guns, zip lines, and grappling hooks, players take on a bold new level of strategy as both cops and criminals on every map. Maintaining the epic vehicular combat fans have come to expect from Battlefield, Battlefield Hardline ushers in a fast and fresh urban approach to vehicles with loot-laden getaway motorcycles and nimble police choppers to navigate sprawling skyscrapers.

After getting organized in Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity, the top gangs are drawing up plans, stockpiling gear, and risking it all to pull off the boldest, craziest heists ever in Battlefield Hardline: Robbery, the second expansion pack for Battlefield Hardline.

The theme of this pack is the Big Score: how to steal it, or how to stop it. The new maps and game mode in Battlefield Hardline: Robbery 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.

Whether it’s boosting jewels, double-crossing an international smuggling ring, or extracting a high-value piece of intel from a precinct locker room, teams on both sides of the law will have to pull together to make (or break) these epic heists.

Here’s what’s on deck in Battlefield Hardline: Robbery…

  • Four expansive maps: The Docks, Break Pointe, Museum, and Precinct 7
  • New 5v5 game mode: Squad Heist
  • 4 new weapons
  • 2 new gadgets
  • 2 new factional vehicles and new vehicle upgrades
  • New camos and vehicle paints
  • The Legendary Super Feature

We also want to talk a bit about Squad Heist, the new game mode coming in Battlefield Hardline: Robbery. Squad Heist feels refreshing and familiar. Built as an homage to the beloved Squad Rush in Battlefield 4, this mode combines the combat of Battlefield with the intimate fantasy of a classic heist.

The mode has three distinct stages:

  1. Criminals take a Drill, break into Vault 1, and grab the Loot from the vault.
  2. Criminals take a Drill, break into Vault 2, and grab the Loot from the vault.
  3. Criminals run to an escape location, call a helicopter, and get the loot to safety.

Obviously, this will all be themed to the map. You might have to take the Glass Cutter (Drill) and steal the Blue Diamond (Loot) from the Display Case (Vault) – but the basic idea stays the same. At each stage, criminals get 25 deploy tickets. If those tickets are all lost, the cops win the match.

Squad Heist was a blast to develop, and we think it goes well with the new gadgets, weapons, and maps in Battlefield Hardline: Robbery. Playing it every day, it really feels like we’ve found something special. We hope you agree and join us on the Battlefield!

Battlefield Hardline: Robbery will be available for Early Access for Battlefield Hardline Premium members in September 2015.
