Battlefield Hardline executive producer discusses the single-player campaign

Though Battlefield Hardline isn't set to arrive until 2015, Visceral still made the trip to Gamescom to show off some new footage of their upcoming cops-and-robbers shooter. Among the new items they showed off were the new single-player campaign. To learn more about it, Shacknews spoke to executive producer Steve Papoutsis.

"We were excited about coming here today and being able to unveil our single-player for the very first time," Papoutsis told Shacknews. "And I think one of the first things we've been most excited, as a studio, about delivering with Battlefield Hardline's single-player campaign is more about our characters, really digging into them, and really having a single-player campaign that shows off the breadth of the performers, the characters, the dialogue, and of course, making this game more about the characters than the plot. And then our TV-style presentation that we're hoping to achieve with the camera cuts that you saw in the demonstration and some other stuff we'll be talking about later in the campaign.
