E3 2012: Medal of Honor: Warfighter Multiplayer Already Looks Better Than Its Predecessor
Medal of Honor and me go way back; all the way to the first game in the series. I was about 10 years old when I got it and even though I shouldn’t of been playing it, I’m glad I did. It turned me into an FPS junkie and a history buff all at once, but what was missing was multiplayer. I never got that fix until Call of Duty came out on the PS2.
So I became a huge multiplayer junkie eventually thanks to getting the PS2 online to work and it continued to be an addiction of sorts with every big FPS coming out at the time. I lost touch with MoH but came back to it with the reboot of the franchise in 2010, Medal of Honor. It was a game set in the modern era so I was reluctant to try it since I already got my modern warfare fix from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series.
I did pick the game up and enjoyed the single player campaign because it was the MoH I knew and loved. Then I tried the multiplayer and I got a bad taste in my mouth. DICE was doing multiplayer; it should of been amazing. I guess they were pre-occupied with Battlefield 3 at the time to pay too much attention to it.
With E3 2012 going on; all I wanted to see from the new Medal of Honor: Warfighter was multiplayer because the first was “Eh”. Danger Close studios is developing the entire game this go-around so I’m hoping it’s would look just as good as the reboot’s campaign was. Early indication points to this multiplayer kicking the reboot’s ass by a long shot on presentation alone. Here’s the multiplayer trailer EA released in case you haven’t seen it yet:
Now, granted, the first multiplayer trailer for the 2010 game looked good, too. I don’t know if it’s the Frostbite 2 engine, more explosions, more gun’s, or the playable spec ops forces that make the trailer good or whether having all of that in there is what makes it good. In my opinion, all of that is a vast improvement over what was there in the first place. The only thing better would of been if they showed some unlocks off.
It was a solid trailer, complete with Linkin Park, to tempt most FPS fans. Any worries you might have had about the game should be put to rest after watch that, especially because the single player stuff looked good, too. We won’t know until we get to play it, I guess, but it’s already looking a lot better than it’s predecessor. For that, I’m excited to see how the multiplayer turns out.
