If you have already played Battlefield 3 to death and are looking for a new first person shooter experience, you may want to consider Medal of Honor: Warfighter. This game also uses the impressive ‘next gen’ Frostbite 2 engine and we have some uninterrupted E3 gameplay for you enjoy.
If you tuned into E3, there is a good chance that you may have already seen the explosive demo that Danger Close unveiled on stage. However, that footage was of someone playing the game and now you can check out the whole thing in much clearer detail without the camera dropping in and out.
It’s fair to say that not everyone enjoyed the first Medal of Honor game, but with the Frostbite 2 powering the new effort, Warfighter looks to be a different beast altogether. The gameplay shown here takes place in Somalia as the Tier 1 operators attempt to rid the Pirate Town of their terrorist inhabitants.
There’s no question that this is PC footage we’re seeing here, as we would be very surprised if Danger Close has managed to achieve this level of graphics quality on console. Watch from 2.35 onwards as you see two Tier 1 members blow open a locked door, take out the insurgents within and then laser designate a building opposite full of snipers – the graphics are simply immense and just imagine playing this at home with a decent sound system. Meaty.
5.55 minutes into the video also gives you an example of the Frostbite 2 engine put to good use. Watching that and then thinking back to DICE’s recent statement on how it is ‘just the beginning’ for the Frostbite 2 engine, makes us very excited for the future regarding next-gen games using the engine.
Watch the action yourself and let us know if you will be picking up Medal of Honor in October. Do you wish to see these kinds of graphics on console?
