EA Sidelines Medal of Honor Franchise

Posted on February 4, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

I hope you don’t have your hopes up for a third modern Medal of Honor game. During last week’s investor’s call EA Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore announced that the publisher will be moving in a different direction in regards to their annual FPS release. Surely it had something to do with poor sales or an absolutely devastating meta critic score.

While on the call Mr.Moore explained that Medal of Honor will be removed from Electronic Art’s bi-annual rotation, although he did not offer specifics as to what will replace it. Considering that Crytek, developer of the ever impressive Crysis series, just purchased the HomeFront IP after the demise of THQ, EA will partner them to thwart another North Korean invasion.

Did you enjoy Medal of Honor Warfighter? Speak out in the comments section, because as fellow Broken Joysticks Founder Eric will tell you, he quite enjoyed the game.

We’ve got a quote from the call after the jump.

What’s New On The Shelf: October 23rd

Posted on October 24, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Welcome to “What’s New On The Shelf”, a hopefully weekly segment that gives you the rundown on all of the latest games to be released at retail in North America (with the exception of PC because let’s be realistic Digital Distribution owns that platform). For right now this only includes physically boxed product but hopefully we’ll expand this feature depending on how well it is received!

Without further-a-do let’s get going, because there a lot of releases leading up to the last week of October.Read More


Medal of Honor Warfighter Open Beta This Weekend

Posted on October 4, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Still sitting on the fence about EA’s Medal of Honor Warfighter? An open Beta for Xbox Live gold members will go live tomorrow morning and last until Sunday. For Canadians, like me, this means a Thanksgiving filled with bullets, kills and certainly swearing teenagers over Xbox Live headsets.

The beta features a territories style gameplay mode called ‘Hospot’. This mode has two opposing teams rushing to secure moving control points, similar to a king of the hill match. Only one map will be playable in the beta, ‘Sarajevo Stadium’, which takes place in Bosnia.

Will you be gearing up to join the battle? The Battlefeild 3 Beta last year was a huge deal and lasted 2 weeks. I don’t really see Warfighter drumming up the same buzz.


Medal of Honor Warfighter Open Beta Begins Early Next Month

Posted on September 21, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

EA’s next military first person shooter, Medal of Honor Warfighter, will get the open beta treatment on Xbox Live early next month according to the company. If you are on the fence as to whether or not the next MOH will fill this season’s shooter gap, this gives you a chance to get it out at no risk!

EA has stated that if 3 million players download the beta they will release a music video inspired by Medal of Honor featuring Linkin Park’s Castle of Glass Single. They also reminded everyone that if you pre-purchase the game before its October 23rd release they’ll throw in the Bin Laden Raid inspired DLC for free.

Killing terrorists AND a free weekend of gaming? AMERICA **** YEAH! (even though I am Canadian).

8 Minutes Of Campaign For Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

Posted on September 14, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter is about a month away from being released and EA/Danger Close are showing off some single player campaign in this new trailer. Medal Of Honor: Warfighter is supposed to be set in realistic Middle East warfare campaigns. I know that these games are pretty much designed for the multiplayer component, but for once I’d like to see a fairly lengthy single player as well.

Maybe Medal Of Honor can deliver on that.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter is set to release October 23, 2012.


Battlefield 4 Confirmed In New MOH: Warfighter Trailer

Posted on July 17, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Battlefield 4 is indeed a real game, as the end of the most recent Medal of Honor: Warfighter trailer confirms speculation from this weekend The trailer is a developer diary covering all of the basics including the multiplayer, weapons and more straight from the guys behind the game.

At the end of the trailer is the above image stating “Pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition for Access To The Battlefield 4 Beta”

Presumably Battlefield 4 would be slotted for a 2014 release. Considering the inclusion of the Beta in the MOH: Warfighter Limited Edition we can infer that some version of BF 4 will be coming to current consoles, although such a game would certainly shine on next-gen hardware.

Check out the trailer below.

Battlefield 4 Beta Access Included With MOH: Warfighter?

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

EA’s Origin service may have leaked the existence of Battlefield 4 early. Promotional banners for Medal of Honor: Warfighter promised users who pre-order the game exclusive access to the Battlefield 4 beta. THeadvertisements where spotted by users on NEOGAF and IGN before being pulled by Electronic Arts shortly after their existence was made public.

There is no solid proof that Battlefield 4 is even a real game, these banners are the first public omission of the game, and as such they could have been a mockup or placeholder of some kind. But considering the fact that Battlefield 3 was tested in the manual for the original Medal of Honor and Warfighter was teased in Battlefield 3’s case, there is a precedent for BF4’s existence.
