EA and Visceral Games have been fighting against the public's perception of Battlefield Hardline ever since it was announced. It came at a time when people were still absolutely peeved at EA over Battlefield 4 .
Fast cars, sunset-hued cinematography and plenty of explosions. Nope, this isn't a Michael Bay film but Visceral Games and EA sure could have fooled a lot of people with the latest trailer for the upcoming first-person shooter game. The trailer doesn't come alone as it's been revealed that the official release date for the military-police shooter is March 15th, 2015.

Battlefield Hardline's premise is nonsense. A team of criminals is engaging in all-out war with a SWAT team in the middle of Los Angeles without the National Guard intervening. Still, once you learn to accept the absurdity of Hardline's story, you're probably going to have fun. The story's just an excuse for the series to explore some interesting new ideas.
