Danger Close Games today announced that it is offering players an open multiplayer beta worldwide for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. In this innovative multiplayer design, the most elite soldiers from 10 different nations go head-to-head to see who is top dog. Gamers can choose from among 12 Tier 1 units including the British SAS, German KSK, Russian Spetsnaz Alfa Group, Korean UDT and U.S. Navy SEAL as they represent their elite Special Forces online. Powered by the advanced technology of the Frostbite 2 game engine, Medal of Honor Warfighter is the only shooter that lets the best-of-the-best soldiers from around the world battle it out in multiplayer to determine who will reign supreme.
Fans who join the battle can help unlock the new Linkin Park “CASTLE OF GLASS” music video. EA will release the video five days after the beta launches but gamers can unlock it earlier by downloading the beta and hitting the three million download mark. Debuting this October, the concept for Linkin Park’s “CASTLE OF GLASS” music video is the result of direct collaboration between members of Linkin Park and Danger Close Games. Produced by Mothership with visual effects and animation by Digital Domain for Danger Close, the video will feature a unique mix of live action footage edited with gameplay recordings taken from Medal of Honor Warfighter. Gamers that download the beta will also be awarded with 60 minutes of Double XP when the full game launches.
The Medal of Honor Warfighter beta will feature a brand new multiplayer mode called HotSpot, where players attack and defend randomly-selected locations on the Sarajevo Stadium map in Bosnia.
Medal of Honor Warfighter promises to feature genuine international hotspots in the single player campaign and introduces international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer allowing players to show their national pride online.
Players that pre-order the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition before the game launches on October 26 will receive the Medal of Honor Warfighter The Hunt Map Pack at no extra cost. Medal of Honor Warfighter will be available in the UK on October 26 for X360, PS3 and PC.
You can find below a new, behind the scenes, Linkin Park video. Linkin Park and Medal of Honor Warfighter are collaborating to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for Linkin Park’s upcoming “Castle of Glass” music video, featuring footage of the band, scenes from Medal of Honor Warfighter and live action shots of Tier 1 Operators in a union of music and technology.
You can also find below the fourth episode of MoH: Warfighter’s SEAL Team 6 Combat Training Series, as well as two new screenshots from the MP mode of MoH: Warfighter.
Seems like the beta is currently exclusive to X360. Bummer. Here is hoping that EA and Danger Close Studios will consider doing a beta test for the other two platforms at a later date.
