Game Informer reported Sunday that EA is recruiting talent from Hollywood to assist in the creation of the single-player campaign in Battlefield Hardline.
Game Informer listed the talent that they know of: “…narrative consultant Wendy Calhoun (Justified), performance director Bill Johnson (West Wing), and actors Eugene Byrd (Bones), Kelly Hu (Nash Bridges), and Benito Martinez (Sons of Anarchy).”
The story is reported to follow a disgraced cop as he is sent to prison and is later released, seeking revenge and redemption for being framed. The game was delayed till early 2015 and was announced to release on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
I’m confused as to what is going on here, it was my understanding that this game was coming out this year. I had played in the beta and I was unimpressed by it. If the game was recently delayed to flesh out the single player campaign, I guess there will have to be something of value added to this game. Good narratives in games are very popular now, with story-heavy games like The Last of Us and BioShock: Infinite garnering Game of the Year nods from many in the industry. It’s feasible that there will be GotY nods for Battlefield Hardline at the end of 2015.
