Medal of Honor 2: Ideas to make sequel better

By Posted 7 Feb 2012, 15:32

DICE may be busy with all the various post-release tweaks for Battlefield 3, but don’t forget EA’s other first-person shooter franchise. Medal of Honor 2 is coming this year it seems and it has now been confirmed that an event will take place next month to officially unveil the game.

The news of a sequel shouldn’t be a surprise to current Battlefield 3 owners. The first teaser information regarding a sequel was actually contained inside the retail box for Battlefield 3, and just recently you may have heard that PSM3 is going to feature a FPS sequel on their cover for the next issue.

Now though we can confirm that EA has scheduled an event to take place on March 6th, and all signs are pointing towards the direction that this is solely reserved for Medal of Honor 2. Timing has already been revealed too, with the event taking place at 8.00pm PST, 11pm Eastern Time or 4am for those of you in the UK.

So now that we know that a new game is on the way, how do you feel about it? We’re presuming that development duties will once again be in the hands of Danger Close, who worked on the single player portion, and DICE who specifically built the multiplayer mode. Medal of Honor was given a mixed reception by gamers, although criticisms were made at the rather short duration of the single-player campaign. Having said that, the content within was very good, so fans will be hopefully that a sequel contains a much more deeper campaign, while DICE will probably just build on the successes of Battlefield 3 to make multiplayer as exciting as BF3.

Don’t forget that the new game will be built on the Frostbite 2 engine as well, which is another mouth-watering prospect to look forward to. We felt that Medal of Honor was ‘almost’ a great game, but certain aspects let it down, like framerate and far from impressive graphics. There will be no sign of that with the sequel on Frostbite 2 this time though (on PC anyway!), so there really is a lot of potential with what Danger Close and DICE can do with the game.

If you played the first game, what new features would you like to see for Medal of Honor 2? What do they need to include to secure your pre-order?

      I agree entirely, enough with the modern shooters I want either World War II or mid-future (2143 anyone?). Preferablly the prior as no one has done WWII in AGES.

    DICE isn’t handling the multiplayer on this game, they actually have nothing to do with MoH2 other then lending out the engine.

      Are you very sure about that?

    Something has to be done with spawning in front of the enemy over and over again,also the grenades exploding way too soon! Also not being able to go prone! If these things are addressed in the sequel then I will be a repeat buyer of this almost exciting FPS!

    They need to fix the graphics and the spawns. Alos, dont make PS3-PC cross-play. There were hackers on day 1. Other than that, i liked it. Also, as mentioned above, a WW2 game would be pretty sweet. I think World at War was like the last big WW2 shooter in a long time and it wasnt very amazing imo.
