Medal Of Honor: Warfighter And Linkin Park Team Up

Posted on August 4, 2012 by Seung Lee


Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly Linkin Park, but Mike Shinoda, the man behind the popular band (and Fort Minor, a hip-hop side project), is composing the music for Electronic Arts’s upcoming game, Medal of Honor: Warfighter. This isn’t the first time that Shinoda has composed for others, however. He was behind The Raid: Redemption‘s soundtrack, which wasn’t too bad, if I do say so myself. EA’s main competitior, Activision, has called on Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails to compose Call of Duty: Black Ops II‘s theme song, and he wrote the tracks for the films, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.

In addition, Danger Close, the developer of Warfighter, and Digital Domain, a special effects studio, collaborated on a music video for Linkin Park’s song, Castle of Glass, from its recent Living Things album. The video will be finished in October, and it’ll mix live action footage with gameplay from the new Medal of Honor.
