More details have now been revealed for EA’s upcoming Medal of Honor Warfighter game. We now have the first teaser trailer to show you, as well as some information regarding multiplayer mode and early details regarding the limited edition of the game.
The trailer doesn’t really offer much in the way of actual gameplay, but since this is the very first look at the game – we’ll let EA off on this one. The game has now been confirmed for an October 23 release, so we’re guessing that we will get a proper look at the game during E3 2012. That late October release is interesting, as it now pushes it towards the release of the likely Black Ops 2 game that will come out in the first week of November. The first Medal of Honor reboot released on October 12, so there is a few weeks gap now for Warfighter, which may raise one or two eyebrows.
The trailer also confirms that the game will be based around Tier 1, but this time it seems they will be aided by special forces from all around the world. It looks like the mulitplayer portion will allow you to choose characters from the likes of the British SAS, the German KRK, the Australian SASR and even the Polish GROM.
As we’ve told you before, the game will be handled entirely by Danger Close and there was no sign of a DICE logo during the opening of the trailer. The Frostbite 2 engine will make its second appearance though after BF3, but we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see how Danger Close handles the engine, as there is no actual gameplay for Warfighter yet.
You may be interested to know that the single player story was written by actual US Tier 1 Operators and EA are making a point by stating numerous times that Warfighter will be one of the most ‘authentic’ shooters you’ve ever played. Until we have seen some gameplay though, we will reserve our judgement.
What are your thoughts on the trailer – have you seen enough to suggest that this will be better than Black Ops 2, or do you need to see more? As you can see in the image above, you’ll be able to get the limited edition of the game, at no extra cost. According to the MOH website, this will get you an instant unlock for the Tier 1 sniper class, which apparently takes 40 hours to unlock normally in game. There’s no mention of any other bonuses yet, but let’s hope that it includes more in the way of Back to Karkand like with the limited edition version of BF3.
