Finalised Medal of Honor: Warfighter Release Date Revealed

EA has announced that their next Medal of Honor game will be releasing on the 23rd of October, this year. As last week's leak stated, the game will be called Medal of Honor: Warfighter. At the time, it was also revealed the game would release in October.

Unlike the Medal of Honor reboot, Warfighter will focus on a more global narrative, with the conflict leaving Afganistan. This has given them much more creative freedom about what happens within the game.

"For the first time in our franchise this game is not based on one historical event but multiple events connected by a single terror threat," said the game's executive producer Greg Goodrich.

To try and appeal to a broader audience, the games' multiplayer will allow you to pick from 10 different special ops groups from around the world. This will include such groups as the British SAS, Australian SASR, the German KSK, the Polish GROM and of course, the American Navy SEALs.

Goodrich explained the decision was because "quite frankly kids in Poland do not grow up dreaming of being Navy SEALs. They don't. They imagine themselves as GROM commandos, so we're taking a page out of the FIFA playbook and giving gamers the chance to feel some national pride in an FPS."

This introduction shows that EA are continuing to share between the different teams, as shown on Battlefield 3, where EA DICE utlised animation technology from FIFA to allow for better blending.

Warfighter will also feature a new multiplayer mode, which EA has dubbed "Gladiator". While not revealing anything specific, Goodrich made it sound like the mode would pit super soldiers against each other. "This is who would win in a fight - Batman or Superman. It's really, really cool and I can't wait for you guys to see it."
