Beta feedback brings change to Battlefield Hardline

With the release of Battlefield Hardline looming, developer Visceral Games has released an extensive list of changes they have made to the game, following last month’s public beta. While none of the changes are drastic, the combined result of them will be a game that plays and feels somewhat differently than the one experienced in the beta. Read on for the details.

The changes were announced earlier today in a blog post on the official Battlefield Hardline website. Thad Sasser, Lead Multiplayer Designer for the game, wrote that the team received an enormous about of feedback from the beta, and has been working hard to implement some much needed tweaks. While there are a number of changes being made, none are drastic or game changing. Most seem targeted at balance issues, and will hopefully make the final version of the game enjoyable for all when it launches. Check out the full list of changes below.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
