Battlefield Hardline: Blackout Free DLC Set to Be Released Soon

With Battlefield 4 getting its first taste of free DLC with Night Operations, it seems the franchise’s latest iteration — Battlefield Hardline — will be getting some free stuff as well.

Announced over on its official site, Battlefield Hardline: Blackout is set to be included in the game’s next title update and will include new maps, weapons, camos and more — and all for free!

Blackout will be included in the same download as the base game update, and everyone can expect to find new maps, guns, and gadgets (in addition to a host of improvements). This new content is organized under a central theme: the cloak of darkness. What happens when the lights go out, and criminal and police factions are forced to face off under the slimmest sliver of light? Find out yourself, with:

  • Two maps: Night Job and Night Woods (night versions of Bank Job and Backwoods)
  • 1 new gadget: Night Vision Goggles
  • 2 new weapons for all classes and factions: a new version of the RO933 and a new Battle Rifle
  • New music, camos, assignments, patches, and more

In addition to that, Spectator Mode has been given a “tune up” as well. Official patch notes and when the update will drop will be revealed at a later date. 

You can check out the first screens from the free content rollout in the screens below.
