PoliceLounge1

The Battlefield series until now has been a military action game. That changes with Visceral and DICE’s latest and cooperative effort: Battlefield Hardline. In Battlefield Hardline players are either special response police units or hardboiled criminals. This time the battlefield is the war on crime.

Fancy a look at what Fatshark and Games Workshop are putting together? Warhammer: End Times Vermintide is a first person shooter-meets-melee combat game.
