Battlefield Hardline Multiplayer Footage:
"First look at Battlefield Hardlineâ€™s highly competitive â€œRescueâ€ multiplayer mode. Live the true cop and criminal fantasy by being a member of a SWAT team, and rescue hostages using any means necessary." Multiplayer will see the return of Conquest and TDM, as well as 5 new game modes.
As well as the new game modes there will be a new Esports mode and a spectator mode.
Battlefield Hardline Single Player Footage:
"This 12 minute demo is shot entirely in-game and is the first look at Hardlineâ€™s new style of storytelling, inspired by the most popular crime dramas seen on television today. Narration by Ian Milham, Visceral Games creative director." As you can see from the video below, stealth is key and you stand a much better chance of survival if you adopt a stealthy approach. You can also choose to use non lethal combat or just kill anyone that gets in your way.
