Ever since Osama Bin Laden got shot up by the infamous Seal Team 6 in Pakistan, a lot of companies have been trying to capitalize with stories of the Special Ops community. Whether through books, movies, or video games, one thing is for sure, the surge of first person military shooters is not going to stop.
Powered by Frostbite 2, Medal of Honor Warfighter delivers an aggressive, gritty, and authentic experience that puts gamers in the boots of today’s most precise and disciplined warriors in an up close and personal look at today’s battlefield and the fight against the ongoing global terror threat. Inspired by actual events, and written by Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas. When an extremely deadly explosive (PETN) penetrates civilian borders, Preacher and his fellow teammates are sent in to solve the problem. Hunt down the global threat and take the fight to the enemy on October 23, 2012.
Thoughts on the new reveal trailer? Sound off in the comments section.
An invite today turned up in my inbox stating an event on March 6. Now March 6 happens to be during the middle of the Game Developers Convention, so there is no doubt this will be some kind of viral event for the game.
Medal of Honor showcased a tight single player campaign not seen by today’s shooters. Very direct and straight to the point, not overly done. It looks like the elite members of the Tier One squad, members on Delta, DEVGRU (SEAL Team 6), and 24th Special Tactics, are coming back with Medal Of Honor 2.
Are you excited about the next installment? What are your thoughts? Let us know!
Apparently, early copies of Battlefield 3 have made it to selected consumers. A quick search on Youtube will result in a few unboxing videos of DICE’s upcoming shooter scheduled for shipping on October 25th.
The unboxing videos are not the star of the show, As a black leaflet packaged with the retail game reveals, what seems to be, Danger Close Games (Medal of Honor Developer) next project.
It would only make sense, as Medal of Honor developer Danger Close Games was hiring developers for an upcoming unannounced AAA FPS back in January and it fits perfectly with EA’s plans to release their major sequel shooters on a yearly basis. The black leaflet shows the entails of Medal of Honor and the well known (Tier 1 like) logo with a website address that will direct you to the current Medal of Honor website.
“Maintain noise discipline”, a phrase uttered throughout Medal of Honor is a common one used in military dialect and perhaps EA should have followed suit. The controversy surrounding the last minute change of the Taliban’s name in multiplayer has caused plenty of drama but it’s never been anything like Modern Warfare 2’s ‘No Russian’ debacle, In fact there are no civilians present at all throughout MoH, just American soldiers, the Taliban/”Opposing Forces”. As you’d expect this is an incredibly patriotic game best summed up by the cover star Dusty wearing a FDNY cap, there’s no doubt you’re doing this for America with no coalition soldiers of other nationality in sight unlike MW2’s SAS sections but then this makes sense considering the Medal of Honor is only bestowed upon US soldiers. Enough of the politics though (always inescapable when it comes to war, eh?) does Medal of Honor dethrone Call of Duty or even Battlefield 2: Bad Company to become the top dog of war?
Although there was some speculation that Battlefield 3 was in the works, it has now all been confirmed. Just a few minutes ago, EA posted, via Twitter, that if you get the the special edition of Medal of Honor, which is coming out this November, you will be granted free entry into the Battlefield 3 beta! Nothing more than that has been released, but I am sure it’s safe to speculate that it will be hitting the PS3, PC, and the 360.
