Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity DLC detailed


Battlefield Hardline's DLC is criminal. By which I mean the game's first "expansion" is called Criminal Activity, and nothing else.

It's your standard Battlefield add-on offering, by which I mean there are some maps, weapons, vehicles and a new game mode. Also, there's a nailgun. You can see the full offering below, courtesy of the Battlefield blog.

  • Four fast-paced new maps – Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday
  • Two new rides
  • Two new ammunition types for specific weapons
  • A new gadget
  • Three new weapons
  • A nailgun battlepickup
  • New Bounty Hunter game mode
  • Six new masks: two animal masks, and four new police headgear options

As with all recent Battlefield games, Hardline is getting four add-ons over the next year. Criminal Activity is due out next month, with Premium members getting a two-week head start.
