There’s all new content coming to Battlefield Hardline with the Getaway expansion pack, and there’s a bunch of small tweaks to the game that players will notice.
We snagged some time with Producer Zach Mumbach to learn more.
Surf the Train
Yep, you can now ride on top of the train in Train Dodge.
Reload Like a Machine
“If you use the sawed off barrel and sawed off stock on the 1887, the gun will have an alternate reload animation,” says Mumbach. You may recognize the animation from a popular 90’s action movie, especially if you’re into time travel.
You’ll find new places to hide out on the Double Cross map. Search around and see if you can find the new smuggling tunnels.
Clear the Highway
You’ll notice some dead trees on the Pacific Coast Highway. If you knock them over, you’ll create new navigation paths.
New Way to Capture
Players can Capture Bags in Capture the Bag mode even when the bag they are defending has been taken by the other team.
Jam Them Up
The RF Jammer now works both in and out of vehicles. “This is huge for stopping Breaching Charges in Hotwire mode,” says Mumbach.
Stay on the Right Side
Drivers of the Import Tuner will now appear on the right hand side of the car, just like they do in countries where you drive on the left side of the road.
Escape in an Armed Limos
In Getaway, the Limousine is now an armored vehicle, perfect for making a getaway in style.
You can now open and close the Large Flood Doors in Diversion, changing the primary flow of the map.
Players can access the Center Control Room on Diversion from above. Try sneaking through the vents.
