Medal of Honor: Warfighter
More Than A Medal of Honor Reboot
As far as first person shooters for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC go, Call of Duty is the most well known and widely considered the best fps. In the last couple of years, Battlefield 3 has made major inroads and won enough fans to be mentioned along with CoD as a top online first person shooter. But there is a third franchise among shooter games for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, positioned to take the top first person shooter game online slot, set to release its fourteenth title. Developer Danger Close moved the series to more modern settings in their 2010 reboot Medal of Honor in Medal of Honor: Warfighter. In Medal of Honor: Warfighter, rendered by Frostbite 2, the same game engine as Battlefield, they seek to make it to the top.
Players will continue the assignments of Tier 1 operators as they did in the last installment. In this round, there will only be two stories to follow: Preacher’s, from the last game, and Stump’s, a new addition. Operators will engage in missions throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia, in countries like Bosnia, Yemen and the Phillipines. The events in Medal of Honor: Warfighter revolve around Preacher and Stump following a criminal organization and their possession of a highly dangerous explosive that is believed to have been smuggled into the United States. The premise will tie in with recent world events, according to the developer, though it is not known which specific events. An important part in Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be seeing the effects of the long deployments as Preacher visits his family and sees the toll his absence has taken on them, an angle not often explored in even the best shooters for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Multiplayer will be handled by Danger Close itself this time around and they are making one interesting change. In Home Run mode, or capture the flag, there will be no respawns. A small change, but one that adds tension to the repetitive running around a nap, dying and respawning to run some more. Now players must carefully consider their tactics and solidify teamwork to even stand a chance. The implementation of tougher body armor and guns that are less powerful against certain defenses will add to the stress. Keeping with the global scope of the game, players will also be able to select from ten different military teams around the world. Besides the American Navy SEALs and the British SAS, there are also the German KSK, Russia’s Spetsnaz Alfa Group and the SOG of Sweden.
Fans who pre-order, will automatically received the Limited Edition which will unlock a sniper and a sniper rifle. It will also provide access for the beta test of Battlefield 4 in August of next year. Danger Close closely involves military personnel in their games and actively donates to charities that assist veterans and their families. To show their appreciation, the developers are releasing the Military Edition. Available ONLY for active, reserve, retired and former personnel, the ME edition features exclusive unlocks such as the Project HONOR camouflage. GovX is the only site carrying that edition and verification of credentials will be needed to obtain the ME copy.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter will strive to be competitive among the best Xbox 360, PS3 and PC shooter games in the market. While it uses the same engine as Battlefield, Medal of Honor: Warfighter wants to find its own audience. In a war title multiplayer is vital and the one promised by Danger Close wants to keep FPS vets hooked. Fans that have stuck with MoH for years are eager for a memorable multiplayer as well as a good story. On October 23, the fight goes global and followers get to experience the fight in the boots of the best warriors in the world, Tier 1 Warfighters. This reboot entry should fare well against the best first person shooters.
