In the new trailer, the Hotwire game mode is explained as a cops n' criminals themed car chase that gives criminals the opportunity to steal numerous marked cars within a level. The cops, in response, must try to recover the marked cars.
Players in the passenger seat of the marked vehicles will be able to shoot at others whilst the driver is controlling the vehicle, so I expect Hotwire will end up being quite chaotic.
The trailer honestly makes Hotwire look like a fast paced enjoyable game mode that takes a fresh approach on the typical FPS game modes already seen within the game. However, whilst Hotwire is explained as a game mode with 'high speed chases' I doubt it will turn out to be anything like a race from Need for Speed, and sounds more like a vehicle control gametype similar to party modes we've already seen in games like Halo.
Whether or not Hotwire will translate as well in the real world as the trailer is portrayed is yet to be seen, but we will soon be able to find out because Battlefield Hardline has been set for a release early next year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.
What are your thoughts on the new Hotwire mode for Battlefield Hardline?
