The game picks up where Medal of Honor (2010) left off from before as it reveals Tier 1 operator Preacher returning home to find his family torn apart from years of deployment. The campaign also reveals that the deadly explosive, PETN, had began to appear aross the globe.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a first-person shooter video game developed by Danger Close Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is a direct sequel to 2010’s series reboot Medal of Honor (2010) and the fourteenth Medal of Honor installment in the series. The title was officially announced on February 23, 2012, and was released in North America on October 23, 2012, in Australia on October 25, 2012, in Europe on October 26, 2012 and in Japan on November 15, 2012 on PlayStation 3Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The game runs on DICE’s Frostbite 2(the same engine that Battlefield 3 uses). The PC version only supports Windows Vista/7 and DirectX 10 and 11.

 

Game

Medal of Honor: Warfighter uses the Frostbite 2.0 engine, which was made by another subsidiary of EADICE, which was the partner for Medal of Honor (2010). The engine has vastly improved the graphical schematics and allowed for more complex scenes.

Old features from the previous engine, such as “asking for ammo”, peak & lean, and sliding have returned from the old engine. New features in the campaign are things like the Dynamic Door Breachand micro-destruction.

Campaign

The story focuses on two Navy SEALs of AFO Neptune, namelyMother and Preacher. The game also focuses on their family life back at the States to reveal the family men behind the warriors.

The game won’t be based on a specific battle, instead focusing on real-world events such as Somalian pirate attacks and hostage rescues in the Philippines.

Multiplayer

The multiplayer aspect of this game is being worked on by Danger Close instead of DICE. The multiplayer reveal was shown at E3, showcasing parts of the multiplayer. The multiplayer was further shown during the Tungawan Jungle trailer.

Each player will get to choose the respective country that they favor. Each country class will have different perks, secondary weapons, and grenades. Some country classes favor certain player classes. The secondary weapons have unlimited ammunition.

Support Actions have been amped up from the previous installment of the game, now consisting of helicopters, unmanned aircraft, weapons, and other equipment.

There will be a new feature in the multiplayer, called “Fire Team” (essentially just two people working together as a buddy-system). The player’s Fireteam buddy will be highlighted in green, as a sixth sense from a Tier 1 operator. Their health and emblem will also be in a small toolbar in the top right hand of the screen. Players can use their Fire Team member to replenish health and ammunition.

The player cap has been lowered from 24 to 20, with certain game modes having less players.
