With the release of a new Battlefield title often comes the release of Battlefield Premium. That trend will continue with the release of Battlefield Hardline, and EA Visceral has outlined all of the downloadable content you can expect with Premium.
Battlefield Hardline Premium will run you $50, but there are a few changes to the subscriptions core that we haven’t seen in previous iterations. Here’s the full list of content you’ll receive:
- Four super features:
- Masks – New player masks with unique gameplay benefits tied to the theme of each mask.
- Gun Bench – Provides players with the ability to visually customize their weapons and track their kills per weapon.
- Competitive Play – Support for competitive play through Battlefield Hardline Premium-access only tournaments and ladders.
- Legendary Status – Provides replayability of the entire progression system.
- Four digital expansion packs featuring new multiplayer maps, modes, vehicles, in-game content and a story themed throughout all four:
- Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity – Players have to make a name for themselves in fast-paced, highly-destructible new maps littered with small-time crime jobs. Available summer 2015.
- Battlefield Hardline: Robbery – Take down the opposition head on and progress through key locations with major cinematic action. Available summer 2015.
- Battlefield Hardline: Getaway – This is frantic, high-speed chases that immerse players deeper in the heist. Available fall 2015.
- Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal – There is a rat in every operation and players will have to find out who to trust. Available winter early 2016.
- Premium perks:
- Two weeks early access to all expansion packs
- 12 Gold Battlepacks
- New personalization options including gun camos, ammo skins, and more Battlefield Hardline Premium exclusive in-game items
- Access to double-XP, in-game missions, and more Battlefield Hardline Premium exclusive events
- Priority position in server queues
There’s a lot of content listed there, and it seems that EA Visceral is pushing the subscription to appeal to those users who want new maps as well as those who are interested in cosmetic features as well. The Gun Bench is intriguing, but I fully expect EA Visceral to provide a video on that in the future.
