Developer Visceral Games has detailed a list of changes for Battlefield Hardline, following the cops vs robbers shooter’s recent beta on PlayStation 4 and PC earlier this summer.
Writing on the Battlefield Blog, Thad Sasser, Lead Mutiplayer Designer for Hardline, said that the community feedback from the beta has allowed the studio to tweak the performance of the shoot-’em-up ahead of its release this fall.
Sasser outlined the list of tweaks under the heading ‘Community’s Most Wanted.’ Check the out below. Battlefield Hardline is scheduled to ship for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC in October.
There was a lot of feedback about slow movement speed and feeling "sluggish". Visceral has increased player speed by 10 per cent, and players will get a +10 per cent bonus for running with your pistol out.
There were a lot of negative comments about the camera "bounce" when suppressed. Visceral has changed the way suppression works – your aimpoint is no longer affected, but your situational awareness is.
Some of you hate it, some of you love it – either way, Visceral agrees it was overpowered and has changed it to revive you at 1 health and auto-inject after 5 seconds.
4. High Tension – Crane Camera Shake
A number of people called out the camera shake from this event as being too over the top. Visceral is tuning this down.
5. High Tension – Stars in High Tension Bug
Stairs in High Tension should no longer pull players into the wall.
6. Elevated Objectives
Visceral has added some feedback to help you find the objective when it's above or below you.
7. Special Vehicles
Visceral is working on adding more special drivable vehicles like the Fuel Truck into all maps. A handbrake for cars is also being worked on.
8. Stuck Vehicles
Visceral is working on the ability to "nudge" vehicles with a melee attack to help get them unstuck or to be able to move past them. The early prototype is said to be promising.
9. Heavy Vehicle Damage
Visceral has added "weak spots" in the rear of the heavily armored vehicles, making it much easier to bring them down.
10. Vehicle Occupant List
Visceral is working on adding the Bag Carrier icon to the list of teammates inside your vehicle, so that you can tell when the bag carrier gets in your vehicle.
