EA BRINGS INNOVATIVE MEDAL OF HONOR WARFIGHTER MULTIPLAYER BETA TO FANS IN EARLY OCTOBER

Gamers Can Team Up to Unlock the Linkin Park “CASTLE OF GLASS” Music Video Early with Three Million Beta Downloads

Guildford, UK. – Sept. 21, 2012 – When two super soldiers square off, who will rise to the top? The age old question is about to be asked – and answered – this October. Danger Close™ Games, a studio of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that it is offering players an open multiplayer beta worldwide for Medal of Honor™ Warfighter. In this innovative multiplayer design, the most elite soldiers from 10 different nations go head-to-head to see who is top dog. Gamers can choose from among 12 Tier 1 units including the British SAS, German KSK, Russian Spetsnaz Alfa Group, Korean UDT and U.S. Navy SEAL as they represent their elite Special Forces online. Powered by the advanced technology of the Frostbite™ 2 game engine, Medal of Honor Warfighter is the only shooter that lets the best-of-the-best soldiers from around the world battle it out in multiplayer to determine who will reign supreme.

Fans who join the battle can help unlock the new Linkin Park “CASTLE OF GLASS” music video. EA will release the video five days after the beta launches but gamers can unlock it earlier by downloading the beta and hitting the three million download mark. Debuting this October, the concept for Linkin Park’s “CASTLE OF GLASS” music video is the result of direct collaboration between members of Linkin Park and Danger Close Games. Produced by Mothership with visual effects and animation by Digital Domain for Danger Close, the video will feature a unique mix of live action footage edited with gameplay recordings taken from Medal of Honor Warfighter. Gamers that download the beta will also be awarded with 60 minutes of Double XP when the full game launches.

The Medal of Honor Warfighter beta will feature a brand new multiplayer mode called HotSpot, where players attack and defend randomly-selected locations on the Sarajevo Stadium map in Bosnia. Inspired by real life operations, players team-up in pairs using the game’s unique co-op Fireteam system for a competitive advantage on the battlefield. The Medal of Honor Warfighter multiplayer beta will be available for a limited time in early October exclusively for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system.

Written by actual U.S. Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas, Medal of Honor Warfighter is set to deliver this year’s most authentic military shooter experience inspired by real people, real places and real operations. Medal of Honor Warfighter features genuine international hotspots in the single player campaign and introduces international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer allowing players to show their national pride online.

Players that pre-order the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition before the game launches on October 26 will receive the Medal of Honor Warfighter The Hunt Map Pack at no extra cost. Medal of Honor Warfighter will be available in the UK on October 26 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC.

Damn it, why only 360 exclusive beta.
I am sure there will be a PS3 and PC version soon afterwards.

Also, lol Linking Garbage :P (not even gonna watch it)
How about just using your ingame soundtrack and not use some big name licence stuff, thats why you got a composer to do the game music.

I mean... who even listens to Linkin Park?

Oh well. Guess i'll wait for a MP demo, or won't bother with the game at all. Not exactly itching to play yet another modern warfare themed shooter. A demo could sway me though.

Yup same here. I was expecting a beta so i could see the ins and outs of the game and see if its worth a damn.
But I am sure my sister (who loves these sort of games lol) will get it.

I guess I can talk about it now, since the NDA has probably expired. I don't really want to dive into too many details, but what I played was not very good at all. Movement is pretty horrid. They basically took BF3 and just played with all of the timing/transitions between stances, vaulting, etc. The result is a game that just feels like a really janky BF3. The gun physics are absolute garbage by comparison too.

This is all based on a very old version.. but those impressions did not hold a lot of promise. The game still feels like it has an identity crisis too. You'd think they were directly going after Call of Duty, but you can tell they're still trying to be a bit more grounded than that. They need to make up their minds. This franchise feels like it's caught between Battlefield and Call of Duty, and can't decide what it actually wants to be.

They should take MoH somewhere else.

You guys only buy games that you can try first? That's alot of good games you's have missed out on due to you's not playing a beta or demo.

No, just the games that arn't blowing minds from day one. Borderlands 2, no demo, but looked awesome, so i bought it. Same for dishonoured, same for hitman.

Why buy something your not sure about without even testing it first? If your confident it's going to be awesome like i was with borderlands, by all means, buy away...but i'm not, i need to to be sold on it, because the premis is tired as all hell and we've seen it all before, but i assumed the same for BF3 and enjoyed it....after playing the beta. Same goes for far cry 3, crysis 3, etc etc etc, i need proof they're even going to be any good first

as much flack as activision and COD get, i can at least fall back on my tried and true system of renting with COD. No limitation, no online code...i can rent it, i can play it. MOH i'll get the single player sure, but online? Not unless i pay 8 quid first.

You'd blind buy MoH? I won't buy it and I've played it.

I don't, but Mike Shinoda did some great work on The Raid's soundtrack. One of the best action movies in a while.
Commented on 2012-09-23 06:15:57
Could you guys upload the newest gameplay trailer in 1080p and 60 fps?

He might have done, but I couldn't get through 30 minutes of that film.

Got to try this at the Gamestop Ireland vendor show. It is so average. I can't believe it is running on Frostbyte 2. It looks so much like Battlefield Bad Company 2's engine. For some reason the game is way too dark too (in one of the latest trailers the sky is red at some point, it is never a bright day in it).
NFS Most Wanted looked great at it but was an older code on PS3 but the guy from Criterion showed me the finished version of Most Wanted on Vita and it looks incredible. So polished. He said it was the dedicated section of Criterion that did Burnout Legends and Dominator, he was proud that it is in good hands, unlike Burning Skies or Black Ops Declassified. Zombie U also runs at 60fps for anybody who didnt know. Lots of tearing a nd frmaes dropping though.
So anyway MOH Warfighter, not that impressive at all.

Problem is, most of MoH trailers or gameplay videos are only availble in Youtube quality, even on EA's press site. So as long as it keeps being this way, you won't see anything MoH related here.
Commented on 2012-09-23 17:19:34
I also dont unerstand, why putting Linkin Park music into trailers like this. I bought previous MoH soundtrack and it was absolutely fantastic. No need to try it look cool and action and great and young. :-/
