Battlefield: Hardline's new DLC dds new Game Mode, Bounty Hunter
A little over a year later, Battlefield: Hardline releases its first piece of DLC and it will include a new type of way to play the game. In Criminal Activity, Visceral Games opens up "bounty season" and pits teams against each other in a race to collect the other's bounty coins.
The game sort of plays like Call of Duty's kill confirmed, where you kill an opposing player then pick up their coin. Collecting enemy coins will count toward your end-game goal, while picking up friendly coins will deny the enemy scoring. The first team to hit the limit will win the game.
Along with Bounty Hunter, a few new maps will be released with the game mode. Black Friday, Code Blue, The Beat, and Backwoods are all maps that come with the DLC that offer different strategic values in the new game mode. For example, Black Friday will take place in a Miami mall that offers a plethora of chokepoints to be taken advantage of, while Backwoods tests your long range accuracy.
Criminal Activity will released right before their next piece of DLC named Robbery, which is planned for the summer of 2015. And even though Premium members are set to play the maps 2 weeks earlier, Visceral Games is planning a bonus for everyone on launch day, as long as it is approved within their policies.
