Battlefield Hardline's last DLC expansion introduces ... swords?

A slashing way to wrap up the DLC schedule

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

The final DLC expansion for Battlefield Hardline rolls out in March, and among its features is an item essential to police operations: the sword.

As seen in this screenshot, both cops and robbers can carry them. Swords will be among the seven new weapons introduced in Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal, along with four new maps: Alcatraz, Cemetery, Chinatown (pictured) and Thin Ice. The titles seem to speak for themselves.

Two more vehicles and some customization options on primary weapons and uniforms also will be available. Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal will also implement an update to the base game that adds 11 more weapons and some new server presets.

Battlefield Hardline: Betrayal concludes the schedule of expansions for the cops-and-robbers take on EA's military shooter series, which launched in March 2015. It's available through a $50 premium DLC subscription. The main game is in the vault of free games offered on EA Access for Xbox One subscribers.
