Danger Close Games has just announced that there will be an open multiplayer beta worldwide for Medal of Honor Warfighter. 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. No word on exact dates yet, but it will be timed exclusive the 360 for some period of time and with the game dropping at the end of August, I’m thinking the beta has to start no later than second week of October which I think is pushing it, figure a week of exclusivity for the 360, why drop the beta for PS3 folks a mere week before the game is actually out?
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. Inspired by real-life operations, players team-up in pairs using the game’s unique co-op Fireteam system for a competitive advantage on the battlefield. The Medal of Honor Warfighter multiplayer beta will be available for a limited time in early October exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system. Damn timed exclusives again.
Medal of Honor Warfighter will be available in North America on October 23 and in Europe on October 26 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. So who’s picking up the beta when it drops? Hit up the comments and let us know.
