EA Rolls Out Medal of Honor: Warfighter Gameplay Trailer

EA Rolls Out Medal of Honor: Warfighter Gameplay Trailer

The MoH: Warfighter gameplay trailer is all guns and guitars.

"Inspired by actual events across the globe and written by real Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas" is how EA describes the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter. I would've thought that these Tier 1 guys would have better things to do than horse around with videogame scripts while on deployment, but everything I know about army life I learned from Hogan's Heroes, so maybe that's a misconception on my part.

In any event, this trailer has plenty of dudes shooting other dudes, high-speed chatter about "sitreps" and "extracts" and of course lots of things blowing up, including somebody's head. It looks like fun, I suppose, but it also strikes me as very generic. I can't help but wonder if non-hardcore fans could tell the difference between this and similar trailers for Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and maybe even Homefront if they were laid out side-by-side.

But if shooting dudes in realistic backwater hotspots with the latest military hardware is your thing, then Medal of Honor: Warfighter looks promising. The trailer also states that preordering the game will get you a "40-hour tactical head start," although it says nothing about what that actually means. Whatever it is, there's no rush - the new Medal of Honor doesn't come out until October 23, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and possibly the Wii U.

What a minute!
The Special forces commander has a BEARD!
What have you done with the rest of the body Danger Close?

This looks interesting. At least I think so. I read in a preview in a magazine that the bodycount isn't at ridiculous levels as it is in CoD and BF. Apparently it's very genuine, which, crossed with Battlefield's ridiculously good engine, is an intriguing concept for me.
I'm optimistic.

Also, on top of story etc, this looks fucking gorgeous.

Can someone tell what is the point of this series when EA already has Battlefield which seems to be the exact same thing?

BF3 is about MP and large battle warfare. Medal of Honor is about small MP fights and good SP. I actually liked the story in the first Medal Of Honor and enjoyed the SP part. Even if if it was scripted.

This one looks like it's gonna be fun as well.

[Swedish] SOG (Särskilda Operationsgruppen)

Hmm, color me tempted. Even if it will probably just be a multiplayer faction. Still, I like these kind of generic experiences when I don't have any expectations what so ever. Frostbite 2 looking mighty fine as well.

And not a single damn was given that day. Seriously, EA, just let this die and focus on one ripoff series.

They screwed up: Captain Price isn't an American who fights Arabs. Captain Price is a British guy who fights Russians (and sometimes Arabs).

I agree with this. MOH's multiplayer was a bit lacking, even if I had some fun with it. On the other hand, the single player was much better than expected and ended up being the greatest strength of the game. Now that Danger Close is working on both campaign and multiplayer, with Frostbite 2, I'm pretty excited to see what this is going to be all about.

Then there's EA...

Gonna be on my "wait til price drop" list.

Game looks damn good, but probably nothing we haven't seen (or played) before & knowing EA's practices...

Can't EA just leave the MOH series alone? It's suffered enough already, just let it die.

This isn't even MOH any more - just another game trying to be as popular as COD.

Looks fun, this is what I wanted the BF3 campaign to be like, not 30 minutes of sitting in a jet THAT YOU CANT FLY

Anyway, another day, another dollar. And also another CoD clone that will be Origin exclusive.

I'm not a huge fan of Brown Warfare shooters, but I might consider a purchase if it wasn't going to be held hostage to pc fans, forcing them to download a crap and intrusive client.
