Visceral says they delayed Battlefield: Hardline for the sake of "more innovation."
Well, you've never seen a multiplayer mode like Hotwire before, right? The latest multiplayer gameplay trailer showcases the new mode and it's pretty cool.
Yes, this is still a shooter, but that's not the focal point here. Marked cars appear on the map and you can get in and drive; by doing so, you'll cause the enemy team's allotment of lives to decline. You can score more points by taking your vehicle off jumps, setting up roadblocks, sabotaging vehicles, and gaining control of key resources. This could end up being the most refreshing multiplayer mode in the game, so it's definitely worth seeing.
Battlefield: Hardline still has a tentative "early 2015" date.
