Battlefield Hardline's Getaway Expansion Is Now Free


   The Getaway expansion for cops-and-robbers shooter Battlefield Hardline is now entirely free on all platforms as part of EA's "Road to Battlefield 1" campaign. It won't be free forever, though, as the content will return to its normal $15 price point on June 7. Getaway, which was released back in January, adds four new maps (Pacific Highway, Train Dodge, Double Cross, and Diversion), as well as more weapons and vehicles. It also introduces a new game mode called Capture the Bag.
This is essentially capture the flag, but instead, teams are trying to capture and secure bags of money.
EA is also challenging Hardline players to complete a community mission titled Hotwire Score. If the community can collectively score 500,000,000 points, everyone gets a free Gold Battlepack. The mission ends at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST on June 6.

The Road to Battlefield 1 campaign has already seen the release of Battlefield 4 DLC, and it sounds like more offers are coming in the future. In this blog post, EA said players should keep their eyes open for announcements about more free DLC, as well as double XP events.
