In this latest developer diary the Battlefield franchise appears to be heading in a fresh new direction for Hardline as far as the single-player is concerned. What has usually been disregarded by developers of the games as it’s not the game’s main selling point has become one of the main focus points for new developers Visceral Games – known for their experience on the Dead Space games. The story looks like it has the potential to impress, with the writer going for a more “light-hearted” tone, akin to that of Bad Company 2. The story is also set out in the nature of a TV cop show – with missions split into episodes for instance. Ultimately, the gameplay will be the make or break for this game mode – since without exciting set pieces and fun missions the story will be very little. Nevertheless, it’s refreshing to see the franchise trying something new, so check out the new developer diary for yourself now!
