Battlefield Hardline Maps Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 1 year ago
A couple of weeks ago, Visceral Games detailed the upcoming, open beta for their cops vs. robbers title, Battlefield Hardline. The beta will include Hotwire, which is intended to serve as an introduction to the game Visceral was looking to build, and the 64-player, cops versus criminals, Conquest mode. We also got a brief look at two of the maps that will be available Downtown and Dustbowl.

While Downtown and Dustbowl are set to be the available beta maps, that does not mean they're the only maps in the game. EA and Visceral have released new images and details about not only the two previously detailed maps, but seven additional in-game locales as well.

Bank Job
Money is the root of all evil. The criminals are plotting a ruthless assault on a high-security bank vault. But, they messed up and triggered a silent alarm and the police are jamming to the scene of the crime.

Derailed
The industrial side of Los Angeles is home to many shady dealings. A criminal ring has set up shop in the warehouses and scrapyards, where they’re trying to make that money from illegal doings.

Downtown
The heart of downtown Los Angeles is a jumping environment – the streets, the buildings, the cars – are all open to criminal deeds. The police have shut down the city center, and a heated confrontation is about to break out.

Dust Bowl
The small desert town of Joad is off the beaten path and well-known for meth trafficking problems. The cops have had enough and are on the scene to shut it all down.

Everglades
Florida is not all sand and beaches. Deep in the heart of the Everglades, a fracking site has turned into a battle playground as the cops and criminals wage war against each other.

Growhouse
The cops located an illegal underground marijuana grow operation. The cops are raiding the place, but the criminals aren’t going down without a fight. After all, this is precious cargo for them.

Hollywood Heights
A mansion high in the Hollywood Hills looks ripe for a little crime. The criminals have started a wildfire in the nearby hills to distract the police. Do you think that’ll work?

Riptide
A drug smuggler’s haven, this high-tech and expensive island crib is being ransacked by the police. A chain of small islands is connected by bridges and waterways, providing multiple access to it.

The Block
What looks like a liquor store and bail bonds office, is actually a front. This is home to a notorious criminal ring. The police know better than to enter The Block without backup.

Sadly, the Battlefield Hardline open beta still lacks a confirmed start date. The full game, however, is expected to make its debut on March 17th in North America and March 19th in Europe for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
