Brutal ‘Battlefield: Hardline’ Launch Trailer

A question that you probably haven't asked yourself since your earliest playground exploits just gained new significance.

Cops or robbers?

The latest law abiding/breaking instalment of Viceral Games' Battlefield is set to touch down next week, issuing one last explosive trailer to tip gamers' roiling excitement to dangerous levels.

The multiplayer offerings of Battlefield: Hardline sees players make the choice of taking on the role of a heavily-armed officer of the law, or an equally well-equipped outlaw. Do you want to break into the bank, or defend it? Do you want to take a hostage, or free one? With a brand new campaign to play through (think Law & Order, but with more explosions and less plot), this is a grand departure from the series' usual war games exploits. Get a taste of the action in the trailer below.

Battlefield: Hardline arrives on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC on 20 March

EA are also bringing Battlefield Hardline to life in London on March 18th – 25th. Apply at Battlefield.com/hardline/live
