Here is Every Map and Mode in Battlefield Hardline

Battlefield-Hardline-1

Visceral Games’ upcoming Battlefield title is set to release in a couple months. EA has released more info on the game’s multiplayer component. Battlefield Hardline will launch with 7 game modes and 9 maps. Below you’ll find the list of maps and modes, along with their descriptions. Sorry no Rush mode in this version.

Modes:

Conquest

BFH

A Battlefield staple, Conquest is based on the idea of controlling a base. Capture a base by standing near a flag on foot, in a vehicle or in the skies – if your team owns more flags than the enemy you’ll slowly reduce their tickets, which are their ability to respawn. The first team to run out of tickets loses.

Team Deathmatch

TDM

Team Deathmatch is infantry only and has the easiest objective to understand: shoot the enemy team more than they shoot you.

Heist

Heist

Heist is all about pulling off that big job or that perfect score. The criminals are trying to infiltrate a cash-filled vault, and the cops must regulate them. Once the criminals break in, they have to nab two bags of cash and jam out with them back to each of the two base points.

Blood Money

BloodMoney

A huge pile of loot has been intercepted in transit. The criminals are fighting to steal the money, while the cops are trying to secure it as evidence. Each team is trying to secure the money in their team’s vault – but it’s not safe there. Raid the enemy team’s vault to help your team score the most money.

Hotwire

Hotwire

The criminals are trying to steal a list of marked cars while the cops are trying to repossess them. Use your driving skills to catch up with the enemy, and bring a friend riding shotgun to take them down.

Rescue

Rescue

Rescue is one of two competitive modes. This is a cop-centric mode that lets you step into the boots of a SWAT operative tasked with saving innocent lives from the hands of criminals. Lead your team carefully into dangerous environments and get the hostages back to safety. Be careful though, because there are no second chances in this mode.

Crosshair

Crosshair

This is the second competitive mode. In Crosshair, a former criminal turned state’s witness is on the run from his former crew. The criminals are trying to erase the VIP’s face from the world, while the cops are trying to get him out safely. Once again, there are no second chances – one death and you are out for the match.

Maps:

Downtown

Downtown

The heart of downtown Los Angeles is a jumping environment – the streets, the buildings, the cars – are all open to criminal deeds. The police have shut down the city center, and a heated confrontation is about to break out.

Bank Job

BankJob

Money is the root of all evil. The criminals are plotting a ruthless assault on a high-security bank vault. But, they messed up and triggered a silent alarm and the police are jamming to the scene of the crime.

The Block

Block

What looks like a liquor store and bail bonds office, is actually a front. This is home to a notorious criminal ring. The police know better than to enter The Block without backup.

Dust Bowl

Dust

The small desert town of Joad is off the beaten path and well-known for meth trafficking problems. The cops have had enough and are on the scene to shut it all down.

Hollywood Heights

HH

A mansion high in the Hollywood Hills looks ripe for a little crime. The criminals have started a wildfire in the nearby hills to distract the police. Do you think that’ll work?

Growhouse

Grow

The cops located an illegal underground marijuana grow operation. The cops are raiding the place, but the criminals aren’t going down without a fight. After all, this is precious cargo for them.

Derailed

Derailed

The industrial side of Los Angeles is home to many shady dealings. A criminal ring has set up shop in the warehouses and scrapyards, where they’re trying to make that money from illegal doings.

Riptide

Riptide

A drug smuggler’s haven, this high-tech and expensive island crib is being ransacked by the police. A chain of small islands is connected by bridges and waterways, providing multiple access to it.

Everglades

Glades

 

Battlefield Hardline will launch on March 17, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Battlefield 4 Isn’t Over Yet.. Final Stand was Just the tip of the Iceberg.. But are Gamers Ready??

Battlefield-4-Wallpaper

Yes the title does read correctly, EA is planning more for Battlefield 4. But what does that mean exactly? More guns, maps, camo, gadgets, paints, *gasp* KNIVES!! Well we don’t know specifically yet what all is to come. But EA has stated that Final Stand will not be the Final DLC for Battlefield 4. Now this game had a rough start I will admit. I was anxious for them to fix the servers, get the DLC out, and everything else upon launch especially fixing the Net-code. Hell I even got premium. At the start it didn’t seem worth it, Every time I got killed in 1 bullet w/o a head-shot, or every time I had to restart (A.K.A Re-Set up my classes, options, etc..)And even before they fixed it I knew I was playing a broken game as much as I denied it all, and I still played it too, but it was still broke.

maxresdefault

Many gave up on this game, and many stopped playing EA games all together which may be a bit far fetched but it had that impact, and I can kind of understand why. With technology ever increasing,  gamers and many more rely on companies to give us what we want and what is advertised, not broken Net-Code or glitchy servers. And sometimes that is what we get anyway. But it is from those high expectations from gamers that we truly see what a company is made of. It took time but EA did finally fix a lot of issues pertaining to BF4, Some issues still exist but it won’t ever be a perfect game I can tell you that right now, because where ever comes a fix for a game,  a new glitch/bug will arise to take it’s place.

But the real question is, Are gamers ready and willing to get this second batch of DLC? Or even more so, if they offer Premium, will gamers get it? Well after all gamers went through, expecting a great game and getting a bunch of Net-Code issues, I highly doubt some people will come back for the second batch and sure enough they have either already moved on to Battlefield Hard-Line or gave up entirely and went to play the new Call of Duty *Pukes* ugh, sorry, I’m umm, I’m sick. yeah I’m sick.  But either way a lot of gamers won’t be there for this second batch as much as gamers who stuck by the game will be. I know ill be ready for it. Will you? Check out funny moments from BF4 below and as they all say, see you on the battlefield.
