Battlefield Hardline’s Multiplayer Reportedly Hampered By DDoS Attacks Yesterday

Battlefield Hardline Gets Meta As Criminals Play Dead Space In Campaign

Before working on Battlefield Hardline, Visceral Games were known as the developer who brought the world Dead Space.

In this video about character design, […]

A Couch Is The Fastest Vehicle In Battlefield Hardline…No, Really

Battlefield is known for having quite a few Easter eggs hidden within it, from Dinosaur roars to full-bodied Megalodon. Battlefield Hardline has taken the cake though.

Battlefield Hardline Open Beta Hitting In Early February

I’ve gotten hands on with Battlefield Hardline a few times over the last few months.

Battlefield Hardline Gets A New Trailer With Lots Of Explosions

EA are in a weird place with Battlefield Hardline. Creating a game that celebrates cop vs. this political climate is really unfortunate in terms of timing.
