Battlefield Hardline gets its first patch


Visceral have confirmed the full patch notes to Battlefield Hardline’s first title update, although there’s no confirmed date for when it will roll out.

The forum posting also mentions that some bugs have already been fixed but not noted in the list. Personally I’ll be sad to see the RPG ammo reduced… what? I like explosions!

Bug fixes:

    Fixed a server crash in Rescue Increased the character limit in the MapList to support up to 150 maps in a rotation You can now set the time limit to 0 and it disables the time limit instead of instantly ending the round in Blood Money Various fixes for server crashes with rental servers (multiple issues addressed) Fix for the timer in Conquest freezing when the user set the time limit higher than 800 Fix for MP squad join issue where after the squad leader gets disconnected, a new leader cannot kick members or disband Fix for the patch awarded in released game for reaching Rank 10 in the Beta Fix for Derailed Levolution where players were teleported to origin of Point B and killed in some circumstances Fix for crash if the UI is disabled in the .cfg file Fix for Bloodmoney exploit in HH where players could access the money pile through the floor/roof Fix on XB1 for players using invite/join on friend after Quickmatching Fix for the Uzi’s weapon license cost, setting it to the correct value of $50,000 Fix for X360 players being unable to invite friends while playing Rescue Fix for a rare crash in the Customize screen All platforms, miscellaneous low frequency crash fixes

Gameplay changes:

    Conquest tickets increased (CQL 999, CQS 600) Greatly decreased nearby bullet impact flinch; your aimpoint will not shift from rounds striking the environment near you » Continue Reading.

Battlefield: Hardline review


Battlefield: Hardline scales down the over-the-top set pieces, huge maps, devastating vehicular chaos, and multitude of launch period bugs and downtime of Battlefield 4, and instead offer a faster paced, more stable and more thoughtful experience. It’s a bit of a departure from the norm but this refreshing entry is precisely what the long running franchise needs.

Gone are two armies facing off against each other and instead the classic battle between cops and robbers has broken out. Instead of tanks and jets, armoured swat vans, motorbikes and helicopters are some of your vehicular options. Battles are also now fought over much smaller maps with more lethal weapons, culminating in a far faster pace. Yet the Battlefield aesthetic is still present, with stunning lighting effects, uncanny valley character models, and a bright, glossy coating of paint. It’s certainly a greatly tweaked version of Battlefield but it’s familiar enough to keep the majority of its fans, whilst adding enough fresh content to entice newcomers and those who’ve grown tired of the previous title’s setup.

Tactics are still just as crucial, if not more so, when it comes to doing well on the battlefield. Weapons pack more of a punch so taking cover, moving thoughtfully and staying vigilant are just as important as ever. Meanwhile, equipment such as trip mines, and grappling hooks add extra danger to consider, as entering a building becomes more deadly and enemies have more options to move around and gain elevation. The five new modes also rely greatly on tactics.

Heist tasks the criminals with breaching a location with explosives on a 30 second timer, picking up two packages and taking them to a randomly chosen extraction point, then defending that area until pickup arrives. These three stages require versatility from both sides as they » Continue Reading.
