Battlefield Hardline Should Be Battlefield 4 DLC, Petition Says

Some gamers don't believe that Battlefield Hardline should be a full game. A new petition demands the Hardline be released as an add-on to 2013's Battlefield 4 instead.

It should be free for anyone who bought BF4, especially when it launched. It will never happen but I feel that's what should happen.

ArchangelMike1487d ago

HA! This is EA that we're talking about. It's more likely if you ask for Hardline DLC to be free for those that have BF4 premium. But that wouldn't happen either.

randomass1711487d ago

Yup. I would never expect EA to do anything so generous.

Vegetarianshark1487d ago (Edited 1487d ago )

Yup this game should be a compensation for giving us a $120(premium) game that is broken for 8 fking months. Screw EA, I hope someday DICE gets pissed too and find another publisher, sad that'll never happen. The most we could do really is to boycott their half-assed, overpriced game but still, brain-dead zombie gamers would buy anything.

sackboyhappy1486d ago

DICE as a development team cannot find another publisher because DICE is a EA company, the people who work for DICE could go their own seperate way tho

This video says it all:

Hardline is basically a mod, which will be charged at full price.

To be fair you could say COD:AW should be free then because it just looks and feels like every other COD, with a boring linear story line.

And for the people complaining, no one forcing you to buy the game, it feels nothing like BF4, I didn't know BF4 contained cops and robbers, I didn't know that BF4 had weapons like the baseball bat and the night stick, oh that right, it doesn't.

xX1NORM1Xx1486d ago

That's not the same thing at all bf hard line doesn't feel like a cops and robbers game it's just reskinned bf4 with smaller maps and a few new toys say what you want about cod but it plays differently every time it may be the same thing every year but tell me there isn't a difference between ghost an black ops 2 or mw3 and black ops 1 I don't play cod anymore cause ghosts sucks so bad but you get my point

Matt6661486d ago

COD feels the same every year and plays the same every single year, they just throw in about 3 "new" weapons every time and some new maps. The story is always linear and boring and the MP is always broken and full of quick-scopers. Furthermore COD AW and COD:BO2 looks very similar with the whole future thing.

r3f1cul1486d ago

to say bf hardline doesnt feel like bf4... you must have never played a bf game before... because its feels exactly like bf without a doubt... not to mention how many aspects they are just blatantly taking from bf4, even the attachments have the exact same pictures and names... its bf without a doubt, if you just added new game modes to bf4, and a few new gadgets you would be hardpressed to tell the difference imo

Gamer19821486d ago

Every new release of COD should be DLC and every BF game since BF2 should be DLC.. As lets be hoenst we only ever get new maps and new guns most years.. Only every 3 years or so we finally get a new engine.. Except for COD where we are still using a 6 year old engine thats just been retuned over and over..

randomass1711486d ago

The new CoD appears to be using a new engine though and the older games were still finished and not plagued with bugs.

I actually am in love with this game...playing the beta now and it's epic IMO...and I would note that I'm a huge COD Fan and really couldn't get into BF4 at all with all the glitches and stuff so I was pleasantly suprised by how much I am enjoying the beta....I really think I may have to pick up this game

ArchangelMike1487d ago (Edited 1487d ago )

See, I probably would have liked it alot more if I hadn't played Destiny. That game showed me just how much Hardline is really just recycled BF4 material.

I had BF4 at launch and have played it on and off since. While I enjoyed the Hardline Beta, it is in no way a full priced retail release.

That's the real problem here, that EA will charge you full price for it, then charge you for its "premium content", and then charge you again for gun packs and unlocks. The game is just not worth that much - especially that EA have yet to release Battlefield single player content that is more than 4-6 hours long!!!

Lawboy21487d ago

I totally agree...which occurs a lot in the gaming industry releasing games just to make a quick buck...I'm just saying I liked it a lot more than I like bf4 for some reason

badz1491487d ago


You can't just compare Hardline with Destiny like that and say that Hardline is recycled stuff while Destiny feel fresh. that's taking a jab at EA (not that I say it's not justified) while praising Activision when Activision is just as bad at recycling stuff with CoD year after year since 2007!

Destiny is a new IP but even then, many who are currently in the Alpha is saying that it's more or less feels like Halo and I didin't mean it in a bad way.

the fairer comparison would be Hardline vs Advanced Warfare and you shall see that both are just as bad at recycling!

ArchangelMike1487d ago


You are right. Both Activision and EA recycle their crap. But to be fair, COD:AW looks alike is at least genuinely trying to innovate, in the same way that COD4, was innovating by going from WWII to modern day.

Hardline doesn't look like it is innovating, it just looks like an expansion pack. That can't rally be said for COD:AW, especially as it looks next gen to begin with, has a whole new set of futuristic weapons, and completely new game mechanics. Now don't get me wrong, I probably still wont buy advanced warfare, but all I'm saying is that even comparing Hardline to COD:AW, makes Hardline still look like a texture pack!

HarryMasonHerpderp1486d ago

I was hyped for hardline at first but as soon as i saw the new rainbow six, I knew that was the better game.
Ubisoft took a huge dump on EA with that announcement.

XiSasukeUchiha1487d ago

Makes more sense, than a actual retail game!

AllAboutGaming1487d ago

It already is. Stand-alone, full game priced, retail packaged and released DLC. EA is innovating :)

MysticStrummer1487d ago

Nah CoD's been doing that for years.

XabiDaChosenOne1487d ago

The beta was ALLL KINNDZZ of mediocre. Deleted it after 2 matches.

itisallaboutps1487d ago

I Wanna put my mushroom tip on the cd and give it to ea
