Fixing Medal of Honor Warfighter with launch patch

If you are planning to pick up Medal of Honor when it goes on sale later on Tuesday, we have a word of warning for you. Not from us, but from EA themselves as they have already finalized a day one patch which will ensure that your multiplayer experience remains problem free.

The sheer amount of changes, bug fixes and general issue improvements though may be slightly alarming to those who are wondering if EA were actually ready to launch the game on schedule or not.

The patch is available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions of the game and should be available the next time you boot up your game. If you were lucky enough (or unlucky judging by this list) to pick up the game early, you’ll probably already be well aware of some of the problems that were present on disc.

Going through some of the interesting fixes, we see a fix in place for when the single player automatically started in easy mode as default, rather than normal mode. In multiplayer matchmaking, EA has fixed an issue where players could join private parties, without being invited first – a bug which really should have been sorted prior to release.

This list of patch notes looks like it should belong in a Title Update, one month after launching, not on day one. Is this a warning sign that Danger Close have been having problems getting the game up to scratch in time? If you have already got a copy of Medal of Honor on any platform, let us know your experience with the game so far and whether you have spotted any serious issues that haven’t been fixed.

With so many fixes in place, it does also pose the question that some of the poor reviews that went out may need a rethink if Danger Close has managed to get the mix just right. The patch update is optional, but judging by EA’s description on their website – you all need to download this ASAP before you start playing.

I’m a PC player and a fan of EA/Dice games but this game blows when it comes to graphics. It has major bugs. As stated in the first post there are times where you can spawn and fall threw the bottom of the map multiple times in a row. I also spawn in bounds but out of play because I was trapped behind objects. There is ZERO destruction in MP mode. Not even chipping away at the cement. And seriously the graphics look like something from 4-6 years ago. This does not look like a FB2 engine produced game. When… Read more »

Just got done playing it for 6 hours. patch downloads fast only, a couple of hundred megabits. Game ist bad at all the gun play is good. didn’t notice any major lagging or really any to speak of at all. But on the other hand during respawn I did drop thru the board into a white abyss till i fell far enough, and the out of area countdown killed me off . Happened about a dozen times in 6 hours and twice I had some sort of white block pop up covering half the screen and no it wasn’t part… Read more »

I dont think any amount of patching can save this game. Played the beta, and it revealed one, undeniable truth; the game is just bland. Nothing unique, nothing new, nothing that hasnt been done before. It’s MoH from 2010 or whenever, with different graphics (very pretty at times though what with Frostbite 2.0) and new maps. Seriously, can we ditch the CoD approach/mentality and release something new or not at all? I hope EA dont try and find an excuse for why MoH Warfighter DOESNT sell well, when the answer is so damn obvious; nothing new = nobody wants it.… Read more »
