Just in case the plethora of information on Battlefield Hardline hasn’t been enough proof for you, a video of the game leaked online. The video seemed to be an internal briefings video for EA and Visceral.
The video showed four gameplay modes all keyed to the new cops and robbers theme. Heist has the robbers breaking into the bank and robbing as much loot as they can before safely getting away while the cops have to stop the heist from going off. Rescue has the police working to save hostages as the robbers keep the police from getting to them. Hotwire is about robbers running from the law in high speed chases. Finally, Bloodmoney puts both forces in a war for a giant pile of cash and tasks them with returning it to a secure location. All the modes except bloodmoney appear to be asymmetrical.
The single player campaign revolves around a Miami detective named Nick Mendoza. The game will be episodic in nature, similar to a TV drama. In addition, levels will be even more open and the terrain is even more destructible.
EA has since confirmed the existence of Battlefield Hardline, but the video has been taken down from the internet.
