New Battlefield Hardline Free Expansion "Blackout" Announced

EA announces a new free expansion for Battlefield Hardline called Blackout

Electronic Arts has been busily working within the shadows. They have been plotting things the players had no clue of. Finally, they have revealed their plans to release of a new expansion for Battlefield Hardline. The expansion is named "Blackout" and will be available for free. It will add a variety of new content to the battle between cops and robbers.

EA revealed the expansion in a blog post; saying, "What happens when the lights go out, and criminal and police factions are forced to face off under the slimmest sliver of light? Find out yourself." 

The Blackout is centered around the theme of, as EA describes, the cloak of darkness. In more blunt terms, it is a night themed expansion. 

EA also released a list of features that the expansion will include:

  • Two maps: Night Job and Night Woods (night versions of Bank Job and Backwoods)
  • 1 new gadget: Night Vision Goggles
  • 2 new weapons for all classes and factions: a new version of the RO933 and a new Battle Rifle
  • New music, camos, assignments, patches, and more

There will also be a variety of game play improvements, including improvements to the Spectator mode of Battlefield Hardline. No specific details were released.

Battlefield Hardline will have additional adds-ons, Getaway and Betrayal, released sometime during 2016.
