this is an expansion, BF4 was DLC. at least thats how it feels like.
...and four hours later i still can't play the game.
The point was is back in the early battlefield games this would of been a mod and better than what they have in hardline. There is a whole generation of gamers now that have no idea what they are missing out on. Its hard for people to grasp how amazing the mod scene was back in the late 90's early 2ks.
