Battlefield Hardline has released to many eager fans who couldn’t wait to play as a cop or a baddie online.

Even more exciting was the notion that you’d receive exclusive DLC for pre-ordering the game, and have early access to a plethora of multiplayer areas before they were made public. At least…that’s what EA said anyway.

While purchasing the multiplayer pack will run gamers roughly $50.00 or 45.00 euros, the amount of initial DLC vs. what you’ll have to wait for is what has a lot of customers upset.

The first wave of the expansions titled “Criminal Activity” won’t be available until summer according to Visceral Games.

Where the fourth and final DLC won’t be expected until early 2016, just in time to announce Battlefield 5.

The struggle is real in BF Hardline.

Another problem is that many of the promised features that are separate from the DLC haven’t been delivered yet. New player masks with “unique gameplay benefits” aren’t available yet.

The Gun Bench, which will allow players to customize the look of their weapons is also missing.

The premium gold battlepacks that will boost your XP, add weapon camo, and give you random items? Those won’t be ready until April.

This wouldn’t be so much a problem if EA, and Visceral Games were working on the multiplayer content. According to Thaddeus Sasser, a multiplayer designer on the game’s forums “They will tell you more soon.”

The really stressful part of this whole thing is that players who purchased premium only have access to the following:

Battlepacks:

These give you extra load out slots and patches for your character, none of which you truly need.

Queue Priority:

This is useful when you’re playing Battlefield at peak hours, or an extended amount of time online. But if you’re playing at peak hours there are plenty of other servers to choose from anyway.

Last but not least if you’re unhappy with these results you can’t get a refund. DLC is a one time use code, and retailers, and EA Origins don’t offer refunds for DLC.

My advice? Purchase Battlefield Hardline, and wait until the premium edition is released, and buy that instead.

Or you can purchase the individual map packs as they’re released to play with friends.
