We know Danger Close has been working on a sequel to Medal Of Honor for a good year now
It seems that EA's strategy to conquer Call Of Duty is to release iterations of Medal Of Honor and Battlefield on alternate years, and true to our prediction EA has teased the latest version of Medal Of Honor inside US copies of Battlefield 3. There's really not much to say about teaser. It essentially shows a..
In a surprisingly low-key blog entry on the official Medal Of Honor blog, Danger Close producer Greg Goodrich has confirmed that the studio is working on a new Medal Of Honor title
He wrote: "Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor. "Just recently, EA announced that the reboot of Medal of Honor was a big success with over 5 million copies sold. We wanted to take..
We've teamed up with the fine folks at EA and Mischief PR to give away three copies of Chris Ryan's Medal Of Honor novel
The book, which acts as a prequel to the Medal Of Honor video game, details the back-story of "Southern American old-boy Dusty, father-of-six Rabbit and no-nonsense soldier Voodoo" as they cross enemy lines in modern-day...
Medal Of Honor's sold a whopping 1
5 million units over the five days since it launched. To celebrate the impressive sales milestone, EA's announced a new multiplayer mode called "Clean Sweep", an elimination mode in which players must rely on their own skill and teammates expertise to prevail as the winning team. Two maps will launch alongside the mode, known as Bagram Hangar and..
Medal Of Honor's stormed straight to the top of the UK sales charts, knocking FIFA 11 into the number two spot
Just Dance 2 jumped into the number three spot, with Wii Party and Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 rounding out the top five. The full chart's after the jump. We reckon Medal Of Honor will stick around for a good few weeks. Medal of Honor (Danger Close-DICE, EA) FIFA 11 (EA Sports, EA) Just..
Medal Of Honor has been touted as EA's "Call Of Duty-killer"
While faring well, critically the game hasn't quite lived up to the weight of that kind of expectation. It's still expected to have a strong showing at retail though - and EA's described the game's first day sales as "great". No exact figures were offered, but the publisher did claim that the game was well in position for an..
Just in case you'd forgotten, remember that an exclusive HD re-release of the PS2 classic Medal Of Honor: Frontline is set to ship with new copies of this week's Medal Of Honor reboot
There's a trailer for the re-release above. It's pretty cool actually. You can get more information about the HD remake on the PlayStation Blog.
We've got to be honest - we never thought we'd be quite this excited about the release of Medal Of Honor this week
But we're actually literally itching for our copy to drop through the letterbox. We think it has something to do with the time of year — it's around this time that there's always a big first-person shooter launch. It's normally a Call Of Duty game that's got us craving some online..
Medal Of Honor's multiplayer is a strange beast
We actually think there's a lot to like about it. But at the same time, it's so very familiar. The game doesn't appear to have any personality of its own; and while it's certainly beyond competent, it's also agonisingly akin to Call Of Duty. Our 16-player hands-on demo saw us checking out the game's...
EA's announced that the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot is the most pre-ordered title in the franchise's history
The franchise started some 11 years ago so it's some record EA are touting. They're also keen to point out that an open-beta for the game's updated multiplayer will kick-star on Monday and run through 'till next Thursday. The game launches on the 15th October here in the UK.
People didn't really like Medal Of Honor's beta
It was, after-all, a real beta though. Y'know, a beta where feedback was gathered and changes were made. That isn't the case for most betas these days. Still, whatever public reaction might be to the game; EA sure knows how to make it look awesome. Take the trailer above. It looks properly incredible. Sure, it shows a perfect scenario with a perfect..
Most "betas" these days are multiplayer demos
Sure, they might be put in place to stress-test the servers or balance a couple of weapons but largely, they are a demo. Medal Of Honor's beta was not. EA's shared a gigantic list of changes that have been incorporated into Medal Of Honor's multiplayer component since the beta. Tweaks include improved hit detection, crash fixes, balance changes and much..
Disgusting. Angry. Tasteless. These are all the words of Britain's defence secretary, Liam Fox, when describing EA's Medal Of Honor reboot. Apparently he's not too happy that players can opt to fight as the Taliban in the game's multiplayer component — it's very "un-British" apparently. Its shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the..
Sony's announced two new gaming headsets designed and built around the specifications of gamers
The DR-GA500 comes with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIx, offering 7.1 3D surround sound effects. The other, labelled the DR-GA200, promises superb sound quality at a lower budget. Neither of the headsets have been priced, but we're assuming they're extortionate. Particularly seeing as both sets come with..
Hands up if you thought the Medal Of Honor reboot was going to be a weak Call Of Duty rip-off? A few of you, fair enough
You're all right of course, except for the weak part. This debut single-player campaign footage is surprisingly good. Sure, it's all a bit "dudebro", but whatever. The shooting looks good, and the visuals are pretty stunning for an Unreal Engine game. Perhaps this will..
This trailer made us a little sick in our mouth
As if Medal Of Honor didn't already look like a big "USA! USA!" patriot jerk-off fest, EA's enlisted on the help of America's favourite pop-rock band, Linkin Park, to make it more-so. This new Medal Of Honor trailer is mostly live-action, directed by the "creative" eye of Park's DJ Joe Hahn. There are stars and stripes, crying mums..
EA's confirmed that those who purchase the limited edition version of Medal Of Honor will be given the opportunity to play Battlefield 3 within 12 months of MoH's release
Anyone who owns special package of Medal Of Honor will be invited to the beta, which will be available for a limited time. The limited edition includes a bunch of in-game goodies, including weapons (MP-7, shotguns) and camouflage..
Just like Eminem and Call Of Duty; Linkin Park's teamed up with Medal Of Honor to provide some hard-hitting tunes that will really make you think about the consequences of war
Either that, or make you fist-pump as you fire off rounds of your AK-47. The embedded video - which features Linkin Park's "Catalyst" - is a teaser for a new trailer due August 1st. Apparently it'll feature a mix of..
In somewhat of an unexpected announcement, EA Los Angeles has revealed the creation of a new studio: "Danger Close"
The team are currently responsible for the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot, and will presumably stick to games with a military theme. Well - you'd think so with a name like that, anyway. As far as we can tell, this seems like a case of simple rebranding if nothing else. Danger Close..
I just don't get it
As a reviewer, I can see the positives and negatives in every game I play. But on a personal level, I just don't get multiplayer shooters. I'm talking about the games that have Team Deathmatch as the default game-mode — your Modern Warfare 2s, Medal Of Honors and even Uncharted 2s. I've always questioned whether I truly have...
One of the most surprising elements of Sony's E3 press conference yesterday, was the enthusiasm with which they pushed multiplatform titles
A move which has long been considered Microsoft's forte, has seemingly been adopted by the upper-Gods at Sony, who offered EA a whole sub-segment of the press conference. From that we got two pretty huge announcements for PlayStation 3 owners - that both Dead..
EA confirmed during their press conference last night that their upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot would be getting a multiplayer beta starting June 21st
Players will get access to two maps and will be playable on the PlayStation 3. EA also revealed a new rewards system for fans of shooter games — the "Gun Club" will provide members with benefits including in-game content, early access to..
Not only does this latest Medal Of Honor trailer feature people jumping out of helicopter things, it also features heart-felt communication between a working soldier and his Missus
Altogether now: aww. Presumably the heart-felt message was recorded moments before shooting people in the face. Because, y'know, that's just what video games are like innit.
How would you like to play a Call Of Duty game that's not got Call Of Duty on the box? No - not Respawn Entertainment's new project, nor the half-hearted Modern Warfare 2 (which totally had Call Of Duty on the box)
We're talking about EA's Medal Of Honor reboot, which couldn't look more like a Call Of Duty game if it ran out into the street naked screaming: "I'm a Call Of Duty game."..
Electronic Arts Los Angeles' Creative Director Richard Farrelly has confirmed that their Medal Of Honor reboot's development is being led on the Playstation 3
Meaning it will maximise what Sony's system can do. Were leading on PS3, weve developed the game on PS3, Richard told CVG. Were working hard to deliver the exact same experience across all platforms. I think for me the most..
Oh look - it's a new trailer for Medal Of Honor
It features guns, shooting and some American-dude talking about war and stuff. It looks a lot like Call Of Duty. Which is actually a good thing we suppose. Though we kind of wish someone would make a shooter about big monsters and stuff instead of military men. Oh well.
EA's released some new screenshots for their Medal Of Honor reboot which you can catch over at Joystiq
We'd love to offer some insightful commentary, but they look exactly like you'd expect them to. It's Medal Of Honor in a post-Call Of Duty era.
EA's released a few new screens of their Medal Of Honor reboot
The full set of shots can be seen at Kotaku, but before you hit the link, just stop and think for moment. How do you imagine Medal Of Honor might look? Got an image in your head? Yep, it looks like that.
EA dropped some big names at their financial call last night, detailing the planned release windows for a host of killer franchises over the next 12 months or so
Amongst the big Summer titles, EA's announced that their big, futuristic reboot Medal Of Honor is due between July and September 2010. That means you can expect a huge push at this year's E3. Medal Of Honor will be followed by another huge..
We know we said it does, but it actually doesn't
Blah blah. EA has clarified that their Medal Of Honor reboot doesn't actually have two separate single-player campaigns, more over it has one seamless campaign with multiple playable characters. A bit like that other franchise. Oh darn, what's it called? Oh yeah - Call Of Duty. Surprise![/strong]"We want to clarify that Medal of Honor will have..
We got more details on EA's, ahem, modern warfare reboot of Medal Of Honor via the Lost Gamer today
The news comes as part of a feature in the latest GamesMaster magazine, where an un-named Tier 1 (a real, but strictly secret military agency) representative explained that the game is all about honor (or "honour" to Brits like us) and respect.After speaking with EA, we have full..
According to information just stuck up on CVG's website (from the upcoming OXM magazine), the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot will feature multiple playable characters, aswell as tactical gameplay that has you taking out lights in order to approach situations in night vision
Amazingly the game will also feature sprinting and knife melee. More in the latest issue of OXM (sigh) and presumably online..
EA has released the first trailer for their modern-warfare reboot of the Medal Of Honor franchise
The scattered gameplay trailer reveals some promising footage. Consider us stoked. Trailer after the jump. <object id="gtembed" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="468" height="380"..
If you're more excited about Medal Of Honor than a cheese and pickle sandwich, then you should probably check out the game's recently launched website
Aside from some pretentious quotes and typical social stuff, the website gives a big hint on the games release date ("Fall 2010"). Oh, and you can preorder it now if you want.
EA's big boss dude John Riccitiello has told Kotaku that EA's relaunch of Medal Of Honor is an attempt to win back the FPS crown from Activision
Im not saying its going to happen tomorrow, but in the way that Activision sort of alternates sequels of Modern Warfare and Call of Duty and owns the leadership position in FPS , between Medal of Honor and Battlefield, I want it back, he said..
Take this Call Of Duty
EA just announced that their reboot of the Medal Of Honor franchise is coming in 2010 to the Playstation 3. The game is a modern-day shooter set in Afghanistan and centres on the Tier 1 Operator, a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle." Apparently, the team at EA have been working with Tier..
