EA had a live demo of Medal of Honor: Warfighter on the Frostbite 2 engine, and it was sexy and smooth. It started out with an intense firefight, with you and your team coming in from the water on a beach in Somalia. You get hit and fall under the water, but come back up ready to fight.
At one point, the player is given an option to open the door. A display opens, and you get to choose how you’re going to open the locked door – in this case, he had his buddy shoot the lock. A little while later, you control an RC tank that goes into a burning building and takes out some enemies, and then fights outside on the field with your allies. Everything looks very intense and beautifully and seamlessly integrated.
EA also discussed “Global Warfighters,” Medal of Honor’s multiplayer, which will be playable on the show floor, and it looks badass. Maybe this really will be the year a shooter usurps Call of Duty – but when don’t I say that? Medal of Honor: Warfighter will let you join the battle on October 23.
