Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Medal of Honor: Warfighter Details Drop - Tier 1 Returns, Co-Op and Frostbite 2.0

Some fresh details on Danger Close's next crack at the Medal of Honor series reboot, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, have emerged from the pages of the US version of OXM, following the game's official announcement last week. First off, Medal of Honor's Tier 1 Operators will be making a comeback, while DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine will be behind the game's visuals and mechanics.

Details like swaying ceiling fittings, splintering wood and stacks of paper flying up from desks will all be catered for by Frostbite 2.0, while multiplayer will also use the same engine and will be developed in-house by Danger Close. Multiplayer promises to offer a variety of global Tier 1 badasses, including the British SAS, the Australian SASR, German KSK and Polish Grom.

The single-player campaign meanwhile, will see the return of Preacher, Voodoo and Mother, as well as other major characters, with the narrative based loosely upon real events and the testomonials of actual Tier 1 Operators who have co-written the story during their mission downtime. You'll apparently visit a range of exotic locations, including a flooded Isabela City in the Phillipines. Danger Close is focusing on "authenticity" rather than "simulation" too, so health will still regenerate.

More player choice during missions is also supposedly on the cards, such as how to breach a door - flashbangs, C4 or a good, old-fashioned boot - and there may also be a one-shot kill "hardcore" mode to test veteran FPS players. Finally, Danger Close is promising co-op support of some description for Warfighter, with a separate campaign a la Battlefield 3 the most likely implementation. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is slated for launch in October 2012.

I hope they wont try to make an other MoH online play like they did with their last title, and be more like bf3 with new vehicles.

The guys from the forst are coming back!

Please, I'm begging you, bring back Double-D!
Duece and Dante were awesome!

Not really into the co-op thing. I tend to be working while everyone else is playing so I don't get much time to do co-op, but a decent single player and a fun multiplayer is all you need to see it to me!

It'll be good to see a decent campaign on the Frostbite 2.0 engine, the 2010 game had the best campaign of any "traditional" army shooter to date. Despite the multiplayer dying quickly I still haven't traded this in, need to find a space in my diary to have a go at a Tier 1 playthrough :)

I liked the Medal of Honor campaign alot, I really think they did a good job, though it needed some changes to it (still better than black cocks of the same year)

the thing that really let the game down was a basic multiplayer filled with campers and a lack of replayability...
But from the sound of it, it looks like that they are out to fix it!

@4 I hope it doesn't. Rising Sun was an awful game. Allied Assault should be included, best in the series.

Can't wait! I think Mass Effect 3 and this game are the 2 games I'll pick up this year! Hopefully there is some inclusion of an earlier MOH game- I'm not picky lol; having Frontline in the last game was awesome!

I "Really" hope the Multiplayer will be "ALOT" better than the last installment, it went "Stale" FAST... Definitely will purchase MOH: Warfighter. Either "Allied Assault" or "Pacific Assault". :-)

Definatley getting this pre-ordered once it starts to appear on the web. I have a feeling that it will contain an older MoH title as well as early access to any one of the next games EA are going to publish in 2013.

Really looking forward to what Danger Close is going to do with the Multiplayer and we all love a bit of Co-Op.

I'm looking forward to this.

I really enjoyed the first MoH, but I think by having DICE work on that while they were working on BFBC2 Vietnam and BF3 really detracted from the experience.

If Danger Close can launch with more maps, and more play modes, the game will really have a shot. Hopefully they keep the score chains too. I really loved the idea, and because they were challenging to get, and even the Cruise Missile and such required a bit of tactics to place right and actually get kills, made them fun to get.

Hopefully the Tier 1 servers are 100% better than for MOH. I was literally dropped from 27 out of 32 attempts to get Tier 1 time on Operation Neptune. EA sucks.

I'm with you #5, I still need to do a run on Tier 1 mode toget my Plat trophy. I honestly loved the MP in the last game and cannot wait for this game as well. This will trump BO2 in my book, so another year without COD for me

This looks awesome already and only very little has been announced! I always love it when a Battlefield/Medal of Honor game is announced. They are always very enjoyable. It's a shame DICE aren't doing Multiplayer, but at least Danger Close are utilizing Frostbite 2.0. Can't wait to see how the Co-Op turns out, aswell.

DICE was too preoccupied last time so hopefully Danger close can get it together? It was the weirdest MP, it was a fuggin blast for about 3-4 days and then it seemed to absolutely suck? I never could put my finger on it...

MoH was the best story I have ever seen in a first-person shooter IMO. I can't wait to see what Danger Close will do now that they are the only developer on the game.

I think we have another great campaign waiting us come October. Cooperative is good news, but please put the time into it. Battlefield 3's Cooperative was a fucking joke that probably took DICE two weeks to create. And I thoroughly expect the Multiplayer to be something new and different. DICE's MoH MP was interesting as a middle ground between BF and CoD, but it lacked a finished quality, and I'm sure Danger Close can expand and create a great experience.

I really loved the 1st MOH, but I hope they don't put in trophies like 'Use all of the Offensive killstreaks'. I still haven't got that one :(
