Why Hardline will save the Battlefield franchise - Vic B'Stard's State of Play

Vic B'Stard writes: "In only a few short hours gamers will get to play the Battlefield Hardline beta for the last time before its release on March 20th.

It’s a game that’s been a long time coming. I first played it at E3, when that first beta was launched during the EA press event. It was OK, but I wasn’t sure about it hitting the October 2014 release date.

And nor was EA.

Rather than “do an Assassin’s Creed: Unity” and fix any problems in post, EA pulled the release date back to early 2015, giving the developer, Visceral Games, some extra time to polish it up.

Hardline takes the series in a brave new direction and with a new studio at the helm. In replacing the traditional military setting with what is essentially a game of cops and robbers, EA have managed to freshen up a franchise that was rapidly falling out of favour. Replacing the franchise’s custodians, DICE, with Visceral Games- veteran creators of the acclaimed Dead Space games, is another bold move that may be exactly what Battlefield needs."

Hardline is not Battlefield for me. It's a different game. I will not buy it.

Replace "save" with "revitalize" or whatever else you want. But please don't sensationalize it just because.
