Electronic Arts (EA) is working hard at its attempt at a ‘Call of Duty’ – Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Recently, according to Games Thirst, EA had released some new screenshots that showed some of the multiplayer of the game. The screenshots show the capabilities of DICE’s Frostbite 3 Engine, as well as some features of the multiplayer, like the inclusion of what looks like fighter jets.
One of the biggest features of the multiplayer in Medal of Honor: Warfighter is Fireteams. EA had demonstrated the use of Fireteams in a trailer released back in August. The trailer also shows off more of the multiplayer, which looks like it’ll be filled with explosions all over the maps. The Fireteam system seems to have some things in common with the Battlefield squad system. According to EA, “Your fireteam partner serves as your closest mate on the battlefield. Your fireteam buddy supplies you with ammo and serves as a spawn point, providing a significant strategic advantage.”
Back in September, it was revealed that the beta for Medal of Honor: Warfighter is set to be exclusive to the Xbox 360. The fans that 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 mix of live action footage edited with gameplay recordings taken from Medal of Honor Warfighter. Gamers who 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 make teams of two, 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.
And fighter jets
Players who pre-order the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition before the game launches on October 23 will receive the Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack in North America or the Hunt Map Pack in the rest of the world, at no extra cost.
