[PCGAMER] Visceral outlines Battlefield Hardline changes following beta feedback - Page 4

post #31 of 101
It was stupid of EA to link this game with Battlefield. At this point the franchise's reputation has been so heavily damaged by BF4 that it causes more negative reactions/feelings in people than positive. It's not very promising when the BF4 community ITSELF is largely rejecting Hardline.

The alpha left a "meh" first impression at best, the ingame chat was pretty grim with a huge number of people already making up their minds not to buy it. It's already been judged to be a shameless/lazy re-skin costing full price and that impression is going to be extremely hard to change. No matter what EA/Visceral add or how much they mix things up, potential sales have taken a big hit.

EA should've called it something else entirely, fully revamped the HUD, tweaked the art style a bit, put in a bit more work/content and this game could have passed as something new & original. People would've been much more excited about it.

Instead now EA is having to do damage control for a game that's not even out yet rolleyes.gif
I wish them good luck.

I haven't played the beta....but I'm having a hard time thinking the gameplay is going to be anything different than the usual BF3/BF4. Car chases in the trailer...or just your typical shootout at some choke point covered with campers. My "reality vs expectations" meter is going off.

To judge the game play of a game on it's ingame chat highlights how irrelevant the rest of your comment is.

Err I played the game along with the community and many youtubers. You have to be delusional to think Hardline alpha made a positive impression. It had a couple of strengths but the overall reaction was a resounding "meh, pass". That mindset is still there all over forums and the most recent game trailers, go see it for yourself.

In some ways the Hardline alpha could almost be considered EA's way to test the community's response to "lets see what we can get away with".

EA stop it. rolleyes.gif

Visceral is good at single player games, why are they doing a BF title? to milk the franchise?

I agree that this is what they should be doing and is what the industry needs and wants right now, not this re skinned garbage annually. I don't see this being successful at all, and I hope they then get back to what they are good at. I'm thinking that this is a much needed break for them and EA might have enticed them into doing it but I don't think they were strong armed into it.


I wouldn't put too much stock into them saying the SP will be given special treatment, because every developer embellishes their product. I don't see it being any better than the SP in BF3/4.

Good that they are listening to the feedback however this game is still a NO BUY for me. I just can not relate Battlefield with cops and robbers. I just can't. Going COD this year.
post #40 of 101
Am I the only one who has hope for this game, regardless if the word "Battlefield" is in the title? It should be a lot better than the Alpha considering the fact it's not out for 5 more months, they're actually listening to community feedback, and maybe just MAYBE they learned a thing or two from BF4's release.
