Battlefield Hardline Improvements Set; Developers Acknowledge Community Input

By on

Battlefield 4?s release last year was immediately met with a lot of problems. This time, EA looks to avoid that situation with Battlefield Hardline. The new game?s beta has already ended last week and it seems the developer, Visceral Games, has already made major Battlefield Hardline improvements.

Battlefield Hardline has been receiving a lot of feedback from their beta community and it looks that they are actually listening to them.

In a post in their blog, the developers listed the Community?s Most Wanted (CMW) list. Visceral detailed the improvements which were already implemented.

Here are the 10 changes made based on the CMW list:

1. MOVEMENT:
There was a lot of feedback about slow movement speed and feeling ?sluggish?.? We?ve increased player speed by 10%, and players will get a +10% bonus for running with your pistol out.? It feels much faster now!

2. SUPPRESSION:
There were a lot of negative comments about the camera ?bounce? when suppressed.? We?ve changed the way suppression works ? your aimpoint is no longer affected, but your situational awareness is.

3. SURVIVALIST:
We?ve heard both sides of the argument on the Survivalist gadget, it is pretty polarizing.? Some of you hate it, some of you love it ? either way, we agree it was overpowered.? We?ve 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.? We?re tuning this down.

5. HIGH TENSION ? STAIRS IN HIGH TENSION BUG:
Stairs in High Tension should no longer pull players into the wall.

6. ELEVATED OBJECTIVES:
We?ve added some feedback to help you find the objective when it?s above or below you.

7. SPECIAL VEHICLES:
We?re working on adding more special drivable vehicles like the Fuel Truck into all maps.? We?re also working on a handbrake for cars.

8. STUCK VEHICLES:
We?re working on the ability to ?nudge? vehicles with a melee attack to help get them unstuck or to be able to move past them.? No promises, but the early prototype looks promising!

9. HEAVY VEHICLE DAMAGE:
We?ve added ?weak spots? in the rear of the heavily armored vehicles, making it much easier to bring them down!

10. VEHICLE OCCUPANT LIST:
We?re 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.

There has been a lot of negative feedback from the community regarding the ?sluggish? movement in the game. Appropriately at number one on the list, the developers finally improved the movement speed of the characters.

The changes doesn?t end here says the developer. They will still continue to make modifications until the launch of the game in October. In fact, they said that they will regularly check the updated CMW list to constantly update the game. It looks like EA is determined not to repeat Battlefield 4?s rocky start.

Meanwhile, EA is also busy making improvements on Battlefield 4 CTE.

How about you? Have you experienced the new improvements? Make sure to give your feedback and help Visceral improve the game!
