Medal of Honor: Warfighter gameplay trailer needs a sitrep, stat!

The first gameplay trailer for Medal of Honor: Warfighter has been deployed, and it has all the explosions, military chatter, slo-mo gunfights, and dubstep we've come to expect from a war-themed FPS. See how EA and developer Danger Close Games plan on making Medal of Honor the new go-to combat game in the video below:

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is being developed with DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine, which was last seen giving war a shiny makeover in Battlefield 3. The game is a direct sequel to 2010's Medal of Honor reboot, and based on accounts from actual US Tier 1 Operators. It will see players engaging the terrorist organization Abu Sayyaf on multiple fronts throughout the globe in the single player campaign. Multiplayer and co-op modes will also be handled by Danger Close.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter will arrive (in a hail of bullets clutching the US flag) for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 23 in North America, and October 25 in the UK. Read our harrowing first-hand experiences with the sequel in Medal of Honor: Warfighter preview - Tier 1 goes global in Danger Close's sequel.

    So... gruff soldiers blowing shit up and rescuing hostages in slow-motion across multiple continents... This has got be the most boring cultural revolution since that wench released her sexually repressed vampire fantasies and called it fiction. Fucking people.

    Why the hell are they using the Frostbite engine? Frostbite is the worst game engine ever to be concieved... DICE should have dropped it as a failure when Bad Company came out.

    Are you actually being serious, sarcastic or just plain trolling here? I really can't tell due to the fact that Frostbite is actually a fantastic engine.
  • aberkromby - April 13, 2012 2:07 p.m.

    No, I'm serious. It runs horribly over a server, it uses a ridiculous amount of system resources, and it glitches constantly. The physics are sloppy and unreliable. It's also the crown jewel od getting stuck on shit. In the battlefield games, Mirrors Edge, any game that uses frosbite, I notice myself constanlty getting stuck on things in the environment. Walls, stairs, rubble, everything causes the player to get hung up a bit. Even the audio, the only good part about Frosbite, has been royally fucked up in the most recent game featuring the engine (BF3). I can honestly say that it's the most poorly designed engine in gaming.
  • Hobogonigal - April 13, 2012 8:58 p.m.

    It looks like we have both had very different experiences with the engine. I have played Mirror's Edge, Battlefield BC 1 & 2, and BF3 and haven't noticed anything like getting stuck, bad audio and bad physics. The connection to the server has been fine as well after the initial few weeks. But you see I have played all of these games on the Xbox360 so I don't have to deal with system resources and maybe a lot of the server stuff you go through on pc. Maybe it's down to platform differences? Sorry for accusing you of trolling, it just seemed like you were based upon my experiences. But surely Frostbite 2 isn't the 'worst game engine ever' is it?

    It's like Battlefield, but with a Call of Duty scale. I'm not so sure that's a good thing. However, I will say I was pleased with the last one's campaign, so it could be okay. I just wish everyone would stop humping Call of Duty's nuts. Battlefield is a great game that had a horrible campaign, but it's still the best modern shooter multiplayer I've played in a long time. I can't say the same for it's little brother trying to mock him and his rival.

    Even the multiplayer in battlefield feels like a sloppy knockoff of Call of Duty sometimes... It's depressing that companies think this is all that gamers want.
  • ObliqueZombie - April 13, 2012 9:12 a.m.

    I don't really think so, but maybe that's just because I don't think of much when I'm in a firefight that's getting waaayyy too hot for the kitchen. On PC I'm sure it feels even less so, since it has a whopping 64 players instead of 24.
  • aberkromby - April 13, 2012 2:11 p.m.

    If you've ever played battlefield 2, you'd notice how watered down BF3 is compared to its predecessor. The pace of the game has increased, but so has the amount of run and gun gameplay. Of course some maps are worse than others, but the slight feel of CoD's lone-wolf style gameplay is still there.
  • darron13 - April 12, 2012 10:54 a.m.

    There was no dubstep in that video though...
  • radiodeaf - April 12, 2012 10:17 a.m.

    loud bass doesn't = dubstep.... I'm not sure you know what dubstep is... this is just action music. LOL

    Here's my early prediction based off past experiences: EA tout this all the way as a Call of Duty beater. They will slag off Modern Warfare and Black Ops every chance they get while not showing us much in the way of their own product. Upon release the online servers will be horribly bad and there will be a fair few copies being traded in after the first few weeks. CoD fans won't be fazed as they'll be too busy waiting for Black Ops 2. Battlefield fans will complain that the multiplayer isn't as open as Battlefield. Cue relatively bad sales. Now I will say that I do think this looks good. I saw an early preview in GamesMaster mag last month and it looks awesome. I hope I'm wrong and that it becomes the next best thing. But that's only going to happen if EA's marketing team big up their own product and let the developers make it the best it can be instead of aiming their sights firmly at a game series that's been showing its age for a couple years now. If you're judging your own game by the standards of its biggest rival before it's even release, you're sure to fail. /rant.

    And my early predictions for the next CoD: Its just like the last one with a few new maps and weapons, slightly updated graphics from the same old engine and if you don't buy it then you will find that last years edition no longer has any players on the servers and is worthless. I am not going to buy it as I do not believe the series has offered anything really new or exciting since it became modern warfare. Now I am for the first time in a long time looking forwards to a new MoH game, the frostbite engine is pretty but of course the BF3 single player was nothing special gameplay wise. Hopefully this time some effort will go in to making an enjoyable experience instead of just trying to make a campaign that would look good on trailers. Hopefully the multiplayer will be more than just a BF3 without vehicles and a slower pace than CoD's spawn/die crap.
