General News

  • With E3 2014 under two weeks away, we’re bound to get more than our fair share of new game announcements. Potentially leaking one early, people have discovered code in today’s Battlelog update that suggests the new Battlefield title will be called Battlefield: Hardline. Details show that this will be a PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC title, Visceral is developing it, game modes include Blood Money and Heist, Thieves and SWAT represent two of the teams, and there are at least four classes (Enforcer, Mechanic, Operator, Professional). All this is unconfirmed information, so treat it as a rumor for now. [Via, Source]
