Visceral Games VP and GM Steve Papoutsis is sharing a ton of details on the studio’s follow up to DICE’s Battlefield 4 with details on weapons and classes in Battlefield Hardline.
Taking in questions from fans, Papoutsis talked about Hardline’s character models and classes, explaining that a lot of what we saw in the first beta is still a work-in-progress. He also reveals a few yet-to-be-seen weapons that will be available in Hardline, including the MP5 sub-machine gune and the M1911 hand gun. He also gives us a rough estimate of the amount of weapons that will be in the game.
Check out the questions and answers below:
@DeadSyncPS4: Loadouts are a BIG part of BF. Any plans to include loadout presets with in-game integration (not just Battlelog)?
Papoutsis: Yes, absolutely. Planning to support loadout presets in-game.
@deadide00: are the classes final? They’re basically copy/paste bf4 classes.
Papoutsis: We are making some tweaks to classes based on feedback from the beta. Balancing, renaming, this will continue up to launch.
@deadside00: Will the character models for the classes be changed? Criminal models are kinda generic/lame
Papoutsis: Yes, we’re going to be changing and improving the models (and everything else as we final the game)
@fretz07: how many weapons will you be able to use per class?
Papoutsis: Around 12 weapons per class.
@gen_kacl_oneil: will the M1911 be in hardline?
Papoutsis: Yes. M1911 confirmed.
@KHodgDog: I didn’t get to play the beta (I’m on xbox). What snipers are in the game besides the R700(think that’s what it is)
Papoutsis: We have 3 other bolt actions and 4-semi auto sniper rifles.
@ntsmusic9: Will the MP5 be in the game? Will there be a dino mode?
Papoutsis: Yes, the MP5 is in the game… and you’ll just have to wait and see
@ZengarenTaloven: Do you plan to just include conventional weapons that already exist or will the criminals use improvised weapons?
