'Battlefield Hardline' made official following massive leak of weapons and more

Following a massive leak of information Tuesday, Electronic Arts was forced to make “Battlefield Hardline” official. A website for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC police-themed shooter was hastily thrown up with the bare minimum of information.

The “Battlefield Hardline” website at www.battlefield.com/hardline currently has a large promotional banner that emphasizes the cops and robbers theme of the game. There’s a SWAT armored vehicle, masked gunmen breaking into a vault, money, guns and car chase.

Also listed is the announcement for when the game will be unveiled. Electronic Arts will reveal the game during its E3 2014 press conference scheduled for 3 p.m. EDT / 12 p.m. PDT. A livestream of the entire press conference will be available at www.ea.com/e3.

The game was discovered by fans that dug into the code of Battlelog following an update to service. The result was a treasure trove of information posted by getbblog, koenv.com and Battlefield Daily.

The leak revealed the names of the four soldier classes – Enforcer, Mechanic, Operator, Professional – plus references to maps (MP_Downtown), new multiplayer modes (Blood Money, Bomb Squad, and Carrier Assault) and a host of weapons, accessories, unlocks, vehicles and awards.

As previously rumored, “Battlefield Hardline” will features one side playing S.W.A.T. officers while the other side will be Thieves. This has led to immediate comparisons in the gaming community with the “Payday” franchise though it is probably too early to make those comparisons before seeing screenshots or video.

Other leaked content confirms that the game is being developed by Visceral Games. They most recently been tied to the “Dead Space” series of action-horror titles but are also currently attached to an untitled “Star Wars” game.

While a release date hasn’t been announced yet, a late October launch is expected to keep in line with the last two “Battlefield” releases and to beat the release of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.” The Premium subscription service will return as well.

Below you will find the internal names of all the weapons, unlocks and vehicles that have been discovered so far.
