Battlefield: Hardline may be a little long in the tooth by now, but that hasn’t stooped Visceral Games from pushing out a fresh update for the overlooked shooter.
The latest update, version 1.07, has been released today and it’s a meaty download. To update to 1.07 you’ll need 3.149GB of hard drive space spare on your system (download size may vary by platform).
The patch notes are as follows:
Stability improvements, tuning and gameplay adjustments.
Wow. How very detailed… Visceral is probably just too busy with its Star Wars game to be doing something as mundane as writing detailed patch notes.
Bear in mind, though, there is some fresh DLC dropping today, so there is likely to be more than meets the eye with this update.
[Update: Visceral may not have too much time to post proper path notes on the consoles, but at least the PC version gets a little love. The full patch notes can be found below.]
