Battlefield Hardline's first expansion pack coming in June

Criminal Activity, the first of four planned expansions for Visceral Games' Battlefield Hardline, will be available in June, according to a post on the game's official site.

Criminal Activity was previously revealed for a summer release, along with Robbery. Getaway is expected in the fall, while Betrayal is coming in early winter 2016. Those who own the $50 premium subscription get access to the content two weeks early. Full details for Criminal Activity are as follows:

  • Four fast-paced new maps - Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday
  • Two new rides
  • Two new ammunition types for specific weapons
  • A new gadget
  • Three new weapons
  • A nailgun battlepickup
  • New Bounty Hunter game mode
  • Six new masks: two animal masks, and four new police headgear options

The DLC sets up the following conflict, according to the site.

Small crews of well-trained, aggressive criminals have been using force of arms to terrorize the citizenry and are in direct conflict with the police in many cases. Public property damages and insurance claims have skyrocketed, not to mention the impact on the police force.

Detectives have uncovered evidence of a secret crime ring that could be behind all of this activity. They're not sure why anyone would coordinate these goals - in a number of cases, the take seems to be smaller than the risk. But, orders have come down the chain to find out what's going on and put a stop to it. Will you help the police?
