A new Battlefield Hardline trailer is out. At first, it looks a bit like Need for Speed—what with police cars in pursuit of some high-speed vehicle. Soon after, it looks less like Need for Speed—what with machine guns and shotguns and rocket launchers and death. I think the idea is to get a fast car from one place to another. I know the idea is for explosions to happen.
Is this the end-game for EA? In the same way Ubisoft's biggest games seem to be converging into a cut-and-paste template of open-world action, will EA eventually merge their various franchises into one big, destructive playground of machismo and explosions? Probably not. Although, there was that PGA Tour trailer (opens in new tab) .
Battlefield Hardline was originally due out this year, but was put back in the development oven (opens in new tab) in order to work on the feedback gathered from a rather lacklustre beta.
Here's Evan, with hands-on impressions (and video) (opens in new tab) from the game's E3 demo.
