Battlefield Hardline's Robbery DLC Gets Release Date

Not much longer to wait.

70 Comments

Battlefield Hardline's next expansion is coming soon.

Electronic Arts has announced that the game's Robbery DLC will launch on September 16. That's the date it will be available for Battlefield Premium members. It launches for everyone else later. The expansion introduces four new maps, a new 5v5 mode called Squad Heist (inspired by Battlefield 4's Squad Rush), additional weapons, and more.

No Caption Provided

A quick rundown of what's included with Hardline's Robbery expansion is below, courtesy of EA.

  • Four maps: The Docks, Break Pointe, Museum, and Precinct 7
  • New 5v5 game mode: Squad Heist
  • 4 new weapons
  • 2 new gadgets
  • 2 new factional vehicles and new vehicle upgrades
  • New camos and vehicle paints
  • The Legendary Super Feature

Robbery follows the Criminal Activity expansion, which launched in June. Two additional add-ons will follow: Getaway (fall 2015) and Betrayal (early 2016). You can get them all through the $50 Hardline DLC pass.

The problem with this game it shouldn't have the word battlefield in it. It should b entire different game because it upsets the battlefield fans. It would be like putting huge maps an vehicles on a COD game. I loved the old COD games that's y I love this game it should of been handled totally different marketing wise. All n all I love this game the new COD games suck.

I think people don't understand that this game was designed with the direction of arcade-ish in mind. Something easy to jump in and out and play. A slimmed down bf that could run good for the masses and hate to say it but faster pace similar to COD. Doesn't feel good saying that. The problem is the fan base prefers a more traditional style BF game play. I own the game and it was fun for a while, but always had the urge to just play BF4 instead. Been playing the series since 1942 and hardline just doesn't fully do it for me like BF4 does. Not saying its a bad game, a bit too slimmed down and fast pace for my taste.

@djpetitte: ya I was with you too. Didn't like hardline at all at first, recently I have gotten back into it the last dlc maps were pretty good hoping the new ones will be as good as well. The DLC is definitely bringing back this game to playable.

Hardline, that 'battlefield' game they tried to make for Console users and PC users, PC users didn't fall for it though, that's why its dead as a door nail on PC compared to Consoles. Terrible Battlefield game.

Ahhh, Hardline, the illegitimate bastard child of the BF franchise. I thought you were vapourware already.

I played the Beta, but wasn't about to pay full price on a BF4 reskin, quite frankly BF4 offers all the fun I need and I'm sure I'm not the only one since during any time of the day there is always crowded servers at least here in Europe. And I play HC mode so if HC is this crowded, can't imagine normal mode.

Allot of people criticized BF4 when it launch, and they were right, but right now BF4 is a whole different game, and a very good one.

this late in the game i think it would be foolish to spend the money on dlc for hardline. as much as i enjoy it and prefer it to bf4, it doesn't have the community to make the purchase worthwhile. i think the only reason folks don't play it more is because of the cops and robbers theme, because its certainly a better designed game than bf4.

Hardline was not a bad game I think people were expecting a battlefield 4 so they had very high standards and unfairly bashed the game.

@yukushi: why would they expect a BF4 if there is already a BF4? Why did they even called it battlefield?

So they're essentially releasing a dlc for the 78 people still playing the game? What a cool dev.

I literally haven't heard anything about Hardline since the month it released. Just a very lackluster game. Maybe if it was improved and was its own series, it wouldn't be bad. But as a Battlefield game...there's a reason why more people are playing Battlefield 4.

Second most disappointing game this year. Only one that beats it is Evolve.

Yes!!!! Can't wait! As a Battlefield veteran I love all Battlefield games, but this one is the most fun one since Battlefield 1943. Kudos to the developers to come up with a fresh new theme while keeping the core intact! Love, love, love this game!

@iammcgruber: It's always been $50, and it's well worth the price, considering how much work is behind each DLC.

@illufox: I understand its always been that price...but it is still steep. The game was $60 at launch, with a full campaign, 7 game modes, and 9 maps plus all the gadgets and guns and vehicles. These DLC's add about 4 maps each and 1 game mode with some weapons and maybe a vehicle or two. I'm not saying a lot of hard work didn't go into them, just seems like a lot of money.

@bobafetthatesu: All Hardcore Battlefield fans care very much, and there are more and more people joining us every day. But if you don't like don't make a stupid comment, just go play COD or whatever floats your boat.

Please don't introduce anymore game modes that nobody will play and focus on the next Battlefield. Personally, I'm hoping for a World War 2 theme.

@jellyman68: Well, most Hardcore Battlefield fans enjoy this game to the fullest, and welcome a nice change from the same old, same old military theme... It's a ton of fun, and that's all that matters in a good game.
