“The new Medal of Honor Warfighter game is inspired by and has been developed with Tier 1 Operators from this elite, international community. This personal story was written by actual Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas. In it, players will step into the boots of these elite warfighters and apply their unique skill sets to track down a real global threat, in real international locations, sponsored by real enemies. It doesn’t get any more authentic then Medal of Honor Warfighter, coming October 23, 2012.”

Story/ Plot:

Medal of Honor: Warfighter tells the story of a U.S. Tier 1 operator known as Preacher and his return home from a long overseas deployment. While fighting to keep his family and marriage in tact the war hits close to home and Preacher comes to realize for whom he’s really fighting for – family. A deadly explosion is set off in a highly populated area so Preacher and the team are sent in to check it out.

The game is not based on any specific battles in history, instead the story is inspired by multiple real world events that were all connected by the same terror threat. The story itself was written by real Tier 1 operators while in deployment in overseas countries.

Battlefield 4 Beta:

EA has also announced a Battlefield 4 Beta, no other information has been given except that pre-ordering the limited edition of Medal of Honor: Warfighter will give you piority access to the beta when it launches sometime next year.

 

Our Opinion:

On a few occasions already we’ve been lucky enough to get some hands on time with the games multiplayer. First off we have to mention how amazing and detailed the graphics are, they show a great amount of detail in the surrounding environments and the variety of different maps are great, each has its own unique feel. One new feature we thought was really cool was the ‘Fireteam Buddy’ system, two players would be randomly paired before a match and basically they would become buddies with the ability to see where one-another are and share items like ammunition.
