Dropping hints earlier in the month, Visceral Games further detailed the Criminal Activity expansion for Battlefield Hardline, which will launch first for Premium members in June 2015, before going live for everyone else two weeks later.
Here’s what you’ll get with Criminal Activity:
- Four fast-paced new maps – Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday
- Two new rides
- Two new ammunition types for specific weapons
- A new gadget
- Three new weapons
- A nailgun battlepickup
- New Bounty Hunter game mode
- Six new masks – Two animal masks, and four new police headgear options
For the story behind Criminal Activity, Visceral says there’s been an uptick in reports at the local precincts, with a rash of violent crime seemingly connected.
Small crews of well-trained, aggressive criminals have been using force of arms to terrorize the citizenry and are in direct conflict with the police in many cases. Public property damages and insurance claims have skyrocketed, not to mention the impact on the police force.
Detectives have uncovered evidence of a secret crime ring that could be behind all of this activity. They’re not sure why anyone would coordinate these goals – in a number of cases, the take seems to be smaller than the risk. But, orders have come down the chain to find out what’s going on and put a stop to it. Will you help the police?
When EA and Visceral announce a release date for Criminal Activity, we’ll let you know.
