Battlefield Hardline Multiplayer Producer Breaks Down Classes and Abilities
Some classes return with improvements; others get lots of new gadgets.
Visceral Games’ Battlefield: Hardline is still a month away but it’s buzzing a’plenty thanks to a successful open beta which saw participating from more than 7 million players. To further prepare players for the full release, multiplayer producer Zach Mumbach outlined the various classes and their abilities in a new blog post.
There are four primary classes – Medic, Enforcer, Mechanic and Professional – each with their own unique strengths and weapons. Each class has been slightly tweaked from previous iterations. For example, you no longer have to wait for a Medic to drop med-kits for you. Simply walk up to them, interact and take it.
Some classes like the Professional even have some handy new gadgets like cameras, laser tripmines, decoys and much more. Then there’s the Mechanic, who’s role is more vital than ever with the new Hotwire mode.
Battlefield: Hardline will release on March 17th in North America and March 19th in Europe for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
