Medal of Honor: Warfighter

The sequel to 2010's reboot of the Medal Of Honor series sends players to various hotspots around the world as a member of a "Tier 1" spec ops unit. A faction-based multiplayer system lets players choose from one of 12 Special Forces units from 10 different countries, including the British SAS, Russisan Spetsnaz, and Poland's Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego.

Mike Kayatta's full preview of Medal of Honor: Warfighter's multiplayer can be seen here. The game itself is expected to arrive in October for the Xbox, PS3, Wii U and the PC.

Mike Kayatta: Hopping into the game's multiplayer, players are first asked which country and, by extension, which set of special skills and weapons they'd like to play with. Next, they're assigned a partner to join their "fire team," a two-man mini-squad within the team given special privileges. For example, both players can see each other's position on the map at any time, from any distance. In addition, experience and bonuses can be shared when both players maintain a close proximity. One member of the fire team can even help revive a fallen comrade by killing his or her killer, or simply act as a mobile spawn point mid-match.
