Drop the clutch, lay on the gas, and hold on to your seats, because Battlefield™ Hardline is gearing up for its fastest, most explosive expansion yet! Whether you’re making a dusty, high-speed escape across the Mexican border, or closing in on a hot pursuit along the sun-drenched Pacific coast, you’ll be chasing glory at top speed when you play Battlefield™ Hardline: Getaway*, coming January 2016.

A great getaway is key to a great heist. If you’re a criminal wheelman, your payday is dependent on your ability to evade the cops. If you drive for the law, the fastest way to earn your badge is to take down the thieves before they can escape into a cloud of dust and burnt rubber. Ready to rev your engines? Here’s what’s on deck for owners of Battlefield Hardline: Getaway…


Four massive maps: Pacific Highway, Double Cross, Train Dodge, and Diversion
New game mode: Capture the Bag
4 new vehicles
3 new weapons for the Mechanic Class
One new gadget and a new melee weapon
4 new Legendary Camos


In addition, all Battlefield Hardline players will receive a game update that includes new weapons and patches, as well as new features we’ll talk about soon.

Battlefield™ Hardline: Getaway is available for Battlefield Hardline Premium members in January 2016.
*REQUIRES BATTLEFIELD HARDLINE FULL GAME ON APPLICABLE PLATFORM.

Sounds interesting. I need to get back into this game...that is...after I put down SWBF.

Battlefield™ Hardline: Getaway* features four new maps that focus on what happens once the heist is over. We’re talking hot pursuits down the California coast, awesome chases over the U.S.-Mexican border, and daring escapes through underground channels and past charging train cars. Here’s a peek at each of the maps coming with Battlefield Hardline: Getaway.

A secluded winery, an abandoned lighthouse, and more suspicious sites can be explored when you enter and exit the highway via this map’s featured vehicle: the exotic car. The dense forest hides some secrets, too, including dead trees that can be knocked over to create new paths, and a thundering “Rock Shed” event that will leave your ears ringing, and your enemies buried. The natural terrain is an adventure to crisscross, especially the underground stream and tunnels which create protected routes from one side of the map to the other.

Train Dodge: This (literally) cavernous map is situated in the hilly, tree-topped plains of Colorado. Cops and criminals square off in an old frontier mining town, bisected by an active railroad track that regularly sees locomotives cross through the area. The train will crush all that get in its way, but its flatbeds can be ridden by those who are daring! (Make sure a train doesn’t wreck on your watch, or it will reduce the width of some tunnels to a single track.) Stunt drivers and bikers will find plenty of jumps to forge their own paths through the wilderness. With lots of elevated terrain, and tons of micro-destruction, ziplines and explosives should become quite popular on this map.

Double Cross: Some lines should never be crossed. And then there’s Double Cross: a map located on the U.S.-Mexican border, where cop and criminal teams cross back and forth constantly in pursuit of the big score. This is one of the largest maps in Battlefield Hardline: Getaway, and is a terrific place to play for fans of Conquest and Hotwire modes. If the sweltering heat gets to you, escape into one of the hidden smuggling tunnels, which provide crafty infantry a way to cross the border undetected. With border checkpoints regularly spaced, there are plenty of opportunities to ambush or trap vehicles as they cross into the U.S. or Mexico.

Diversion: Not all getaways take place in a car. Deep underground, in the dimly-lit channels of the Houston Flood Diversion Center, an on-foot escape is the only one you can make. Here, city engineers built a network of aqueducts and flood doors to manage watershed – but in the hands of an enterprising criminal, these same structures can be used to change infantry paths, block enemy routes, and deny grenades. Explosive gas lines can be targeted to destroy catwalks or blow up the opposition. Aspiring cat burglars will appreciate the many paths into the Center’s control room, including a hair-raising, shimmying sneak through the vents.
Battlefield™ Hardline: Getaway is available for Battlefield Hardline Premium members in January 2016.

Another reason I wish EA Access was on PS4. While I've bought games twice to have them on both systems, it would be great to have this sucker from the Vault on PS4.

I don't think it's dropped, but it has gone on sale recently.

So with no pomp and ceremony, this new map pack creeps in under the radar and I don't care what anybody says, it just provided me with several hours of smooth/ bug free fps heaven.

Large conquest was great on all of the maps, and the game play was intense and satisfying for a meat shield of my calibre. Hit detection seems flawless and it is still a blast going in hot with sound systems blazing, or traditional route on foot.

The only reason this isn't more popular must be market saturation, because for me it probably beat RS:6 & SW:BF in terms of action packed crazy gun slinging fun.

Strongly recommend.

If Hardline did not have the Battlefield name tagged on it, people would gush over the game. Instead they bitch and complain and cry "it's not Battlefield, it's cops and robbers". And because of that they miss out on a really good game that is very well balanced.

I'm in just not sure what time. Mother and kids coming late tonight after work so hopefully I'll be on from around 21:30-22:00. By the way, I do not have any DLC for Hardline or BF4 if you happy to play original maps.

LOL! I would if I still had the game, but I traded it in a long time ago when I didn't have guys like you to play with ;)
