Single-player isn’t a “single-path linear roller coaster” in Battlefield: Hardline

That’s good to know, right? According to Battlefield: Hardline’s creative director Ian Milham, the solo portion of the game will offer players more choices.


Speaking with RPS at E3 2014, Milham said since Visceral’s has plenty of experience in that department thanks to creating three Dead Space games.

“When we were thinking about how to do this game, I think anybody who knows us at Visceral knows that single-player is near and dear to our heart,” he said. “We’ve done a pretty OK job of it before, and we have some pretty cool ideas for this one.

“On the single-player side the stuff that’s important to us is maybe not do as much of a single-path linear roller coaster that’s been done before. We want more tactical choice, more player choice.

“Things to do besides just shoot everybody. That’s not really a cop thing as much.”

Hardline pits police against criminals and PC and PlayStation 4 players have been taking advantage of the beta since E3 last week.

The PS4 beta has been extended to June 26 and the PC beta has opened to all. Xbox users will get their own, special beta at a later date.

Battlefield: Hardline is due in October on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
