Battlefield Hardline PC “We're not just porting it over"
"Battlefield started on the PC... and we know we have a passionate fan base on this platform."
In a new post on the Battlefield Blog, Visceral Games gameplay systems producer Mike Glosecki outlines the many reasons he thinks Battlefield Hardline will shine on PC. He starts off by promising that the PC edition of the cops-and-robbers shooter is not just a simple port.
"We're doing what we can to take advantage of people's different system with the graphics, framerate, controls, etc. We're not just porting it over," he said. "Battlefield started on the PC with 1942 and we know we have a passionate fan base on this platform. Fans can expect the huge 64-player battles with that rock, paper, scissor gameplay that they have come to love in Hardline as well."
"I think we can all agree that Battlefield 4's stability at launch was less than stellar," he said. "In order to address stability for our game at launch, we've had the game up and running in the multiplayer environment for the last two years with both the development and quality assurance teams playing in daily matches."
Glosecki also pointed to Hardline's two betas, saying these testing periods have "not only helped us solidify the stability of our servers, but have also provided great feedback for us to address in the game."
The Hardline release date is March 17 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
