  • Medal of Honor Manhunt Map Pack

    Warfighter: Manhunt Map Pack

    If you pre-ordered the limited edition of MOH: Warfighter, then you will already have access to the new Manhunt map pack, but if you purchased the standard edition, the new map pack will cost $9.99.

    Manhunt, or the Thirty Dark Days DLC, lets players experience the tension soldiers had in the hunt for Bin Laden, focusing on two maps where Bin Laden had previously visited. Darra Gun Market and Chitral Compound are the two new maps located in Pakistan, and will feature dusty back alleys and worn-down buildings. Although you won't actually find Bin Laden, the new maps give the players the image of a pursuit through the two areas as the soldiers follow Bin Laden's recent tracks.

    Danger Close games have put a lot of effort into making the new maps look as real as possible, and have used close image referencing to not just create new enjoyable maps, but also to make an authentic level of gameplay that attempts to put you straight into the boots of the soldier you’re playing as.

    We're not quite sure whether the map pack will include extra campaign content, extra multiplayer missions and maps, or both, but the footage of the trailer shows tense firefights throughout the maps, and you'll come across a heavy opposition in the two areas so getting in and out as quickly as possible won't be an easy task, making this a perfect scenario for playing against an AI terrorist group.

    The Manhunt DLC was announced before Warfighter had even been released, and for only two maps for $9.99, you may feel a little ripped off, but it's up to you whether you enjoy the game enough to spend $10 on the new content.

    Many of our mods are compatible with Medal of Honor: Warfighter so if you own a custom controller designed through our Controller Creator and you purchased a mod be sure to test them out in this new Medal of Honor title.  A great way to extend the life of the title and the value of the DLC.

  • Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta launched October 6th - Full Release Soon After

    Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta Launched

    All you FPS fans out there are getting extra lucky with this year's lineup; with Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 set for release over the upcoming months we've already got hours of gameplay available at our hands. But for any of you still not satisfied, Warfighter, the new Medal of Honor game will be set to release very soon!

    Medal of Honor will hopefully offer a gameplay experience that adds something new from the crowd of recent military shooter releases, and if we're to go by the impressive gameplay footage and conceptual ideas released by Danger Close Games, we have reason to keep our hopes high.

    At E3 2012 Warfighter was shown by Danger Close to include in-depth and realistic military scenarios mimicking real-life terrorist intervention missions:

    "Medal of Honor Warfighter puts players in the boots of today's most highly trained and skilled warriors to experience missions that have a dotted line to real world terrorist events. This is Tier 1 on a global scale, featuring real world hotspots in the single-player campaign and introducing international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer. This groundbreaking move gives players a window into the look and style of elite soldiers from 10 different countries around the world. With Medal of Honor Warfighter, gamers can represent their nation's Special Operations Forces on the multiplayer battlefield. Medal of Honor introduces a new mode where the world's best-of-the-best warriors go head-to-head in online competition."

    Warfighter will be running on the all-new Frostbite 2 engine so expect destroyable scenery, smart AI, and stunning visuals on both the Xbox and PS3.

    Warfighter is set to release on October 23rd, but if you want to play the game beforehand, grab yourself a modded controller and download the free open Beta from the Xbox marketplace.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfigher Gets Linkin Park Involved

    EA has made their marketing strategy clear. They want to beat the reigning champ, Call of Duty, or at least take a chunk out of its market share. Every first person shooter wants to be CoD and who can blame them? The money CoD rakes in every year is unbelievable.

    Interestingly enough, this time EA is sticking to The Danger Close team making Medal of Honor Warfighter as grounded and real as possible in hope that it would attract the gamers. They believe that gamers who are looking for the authentic feel of a modern battlefield might prefer Warfighter over Black Ops 2. They have based this assumption on the fact that Treyarch has taken a very futuristic approach with BO2 which might not be well received by gamers. Some diehard CoD fans have actually voiced out their concerns regarding this in forums and blogs all over the internet.

    If true, this could very well be MoH's year. It is obvious that MoH may surpasses BO2 thanks to its amazing Frostbite 2 engine. MoH is supposed to actually look better than even BF3. We have all stared at awe at one point or other at the destructive capability of the Frost Bite 2. To add to it all they have also represented 12 Tier 1 teams across 10 countries in Warfighter. EA and The Danger Close team are hoping that this might play to the patriotic side of players and get them involved in a whole new level, much like in Fifa.

    Recently it was revealed that EA has gotten one of the most famous rock bands in the world, Linkin Park, involved in their project in an attempt to enhance the emotional and authentic military experience they are trying to deliver with MoH Warfighter.

    Danger Close revealed their cross-collaboration with Linkin Park and that Mike Shanoda, co-lead vocalist and co-producer of Linkin Park, has already composed original in-game scores for MoH Warfighter which were specifically made to "add depth and emotion to an already intense gameplay experience."

    EA also produced Linkin Park's new music video - Castle of Glass which will also be included in the game. Only time will tell how much of an effect this cross-collaboration would have on sales of MoH Warfighter. For now check out the following videos.

    Is the inclusion of Linkin Park a game seller for you or something you aren't particularly interested in? Let us know and be sure to check out our Controller Creator to make your own custom modded xbox controller.

     

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter vs Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    Warfighter to Compete with Black Ops 2

    It seems every year now we gamers get to witness a clash between FPS superstars. Last year it was Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3 and this year it is Black Ops 2 vs Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Both these games are direct sequels to their respective predecessors and both of them show great promise.

    Since 2003 Call of Duty has been the reigning champ with little or no competition. Even though there are a lot of gamers annoyed by the COD franchise now because of the similar gameplay and old engine, they still continue to break sales records every year. It's no wonder the franchise doesn't seem too eager to set itself apart from their tried and tested formula.

    This is where Battlefield and MoH come into play. These guys desperately want to get to the top and that's why they are trying to improve on any and all aspects of the genre. We have all seen how amazing the Frostbite 2 engine looks and its potential for destructive environments. This year's MoH is expected to actually be better looking (slightly) than BF3.

    Not only is MoH bringing a better graphics to the table they are also bringing their secret weapon - globalization. Seems The Danger Close team has taken inspiration from Fifa in becoming more 'global'.

    In one of our previous articles we gave the complete list of the twelve Tier 1 Teams that were available from a total of ten different countries. The Danger Close team is banking on the local appeal of these teams and hoping the patriotism factor would kick in to get people that much more involved with game and the overall experience.

    Also another key difference between Black Ops 2 MoH this year is that MoH is much more grounded while Black Ops 2 (being set in the future) has gone a bit high-tech. A lot of fans have already expressed their dissatisfaction with Black Ops regarding this.

    But no matter what the online polls say or how many complaints there are, CoD has always come out on top. With this year's Black Ops being termed as the MOST ambitious of all CoD games, MoH has to bring its A game in order to have any chance of competing.

    It is obvious that there is no way that MoH can take the throne this year but, having a solid run will definitely help the franchise get a bigger cut the next time. Maybe in time we will see BF or MoH become the top dog but till then I hope the competition keeps on increasing. The stronger the competition, the better it is for us gamers.

    If you aren't sure which of these titles you will be picking up, don't fret. Our modded controllers are likely to be compatible with both titles. If you already have our Adjustable controller or our Master Mod you can fine tune our Adjustable setting to have rapid fire on day 1 of either release.

  • Battlefield 4 Confirmed

    Battlefield 4 News!


    Hey there gamers! Last week the whole gaming community was taken by complete surprise by the news that Battlefield 4 might be in development. This news was leaked from a promotional banner for Medal of Honor Warfighter which listed that as a bonus BF4 Beta would be accessible to those who pre-order MoH Warfighter.

    Even though the news must have been exciting to fans there was no telling whether it was real or not. Fortunately for us, EA has confirmed with Gamespot that the BF4 is very much in the works and the Beta version would be available sometime in the Fall of 2013. I wonder if it means the game will be available by holiday season of 2013.

    Also the rumored pre-order special is also true; anyone who pre-orders MoH: Warfighter will be getting access to BF4 Beta trials. Now that definitely makes this year's MoH that much more desirable!

    EA community manager Ian Tornay had something to say about this whole situation and I quote:

    "There are several teams at DICE. Starting work on Battlefield 4 does not mean that we will be abandoning Battlefield 3 or working any less hard to bring you the best expansions we can. Dice and EA are dedicated to continuing our support for Battlefield 3. Just as we've continued to support and maintain Bad Company 2, weintend to continue providing the best Battlefield 3 experience we can well into the future and past the release of End Game and Battlefield 4."

    Tornay also mentioned that pre-ordering MoH Warfighter is not the only way to get access to BF4 Beta and that there will be other ways to do so. Unfortunately none of those other methods have been named yet. For now Medal of Honor: Warfighter seems to be our only ticket to the Battlefield 4 Beta.

    Be extra prepared for Warfighter and the Battlefield 4 Beta by purchasing our modded controller the Stealth Adjustable with Modern Warfare 3/Battlefield 3 functions.

  • Battlefield 4 Leaked?

    Battlefield 4 Leak?

    No one knows whether it was actually a mistake or whether it was planned but a pre-order bonus has revealed that Battlefield 4 might be in the works, more like it is definitely in the works.

    A special promotional banner for pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter displayed on EA's Origin digital distribution service. The banner stated that is you ordered the game for a price of $69.99 you would get exclusive access to Battlefield 4 Beta.

    Till now neither EA nor DICE have mentioned anything about a sequel to Battlefield 3 released just a year back. For now DICE has been confirmed to make new DLC for Battlefield 3 till March 2013. Considering how successful Battlefield 3 was, it is not that surprising to considering a follow up.

    It was just weird how the news was actually brought to our attention. Either case considering DICE's commitment to future BF3 DLC, we won't be seeing BF4 no sooner than March 2013. We can however hope to hear some concrete details soon and if we do, we will definitely keep you posted!

     

    If a new Battlefield is on the way, use our modded controller - the Stealth Adjustable to get the edge over your opponents! Includes over 15,000 Adjustable rates of rapid fire!

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter - Multiplayer Details

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter Multiplayer

    There isn't a TON of info available regarding the multiplayer but, there has been some nifty details discovered over the last few days and I thought I might sum it up.

    First of all, the 12 Tier 1 operators from a total of 10 countries that we will be able to get our hands on in the multiplayer have been confirmed:

    SAS - British Special Air Service Regiment
    SEAL - US Navy's primary Special Operation Force
    SFOD-D - US Army's primary Counter Terrorist Force
    OGA - US' Other Government Agencies is a mix elites from different backgrounds
    JTF2 - Canada's elite CT force - Joint Task Force 2
    GROM - Poland's elite CT Force
    KSK - Germany's CT Force
    SASR - Australian Army's premier SOF
    UDT - South Korea's UDT/Seals an elite SOF
    FSK - Norway's primary SOF
    SOG - Sweden's elite SOF
    Spetsnaz - Russia's special purpose CT force

    The option of being able to represent you own country is definitely going to bring about some patriotism and with that some added intensity. What I am waiting for is to see how these teams are different teams and which one is the right one for me!

    MoH: Warfighter is also going to incorporate something called Fire Teams which would pair you up with another player. This would not only help you survive but also add a layer of strategy, team play and tactics. It is essentially a sleeker version of BF's Squad mechanic. If you die, you will spawn right next to your partner. Taking it a step further, team members will be able to spot each other's outline through buildings etc. That way even if you two split up, you will always know where your partner is.

    Final thing I want to mention is the multiplayer trailer that was released. I don't know about you guys, but to me it looked amazing. Thanks to the Frostbite 2 engine the graphics look superb. EA is claiming that MoH: Warfighter is actually going to look better than BF3!

    The action also looks fast paced but that of course is thanks to the editing. What really got me going are the sounds, it really gets you pumped! I especially love the way the whole camera shakes because of nearby explosions, fantastic. Really get the impact across.

    Well the MoH: Warfighter is set to release on the 23rd of October this year and I can't wait to find out more. I really hope this iteration will make me happier than Medal of Honor 2010.  Check out the multiplayer trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xG9T6h4foA

     

     

    Have you pre-ordered Medal of Honer: Warfighter or Black Ops 2? If you have, you will definitely need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets and our adjustable rapid fire mod compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. Don't find yourself on the bottom of those leaderboards with a normal controller, upgrade to an Evil Controller.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter Shows Off the Frostbite 2 Engine

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter

    Medal of Honor is posing some serious competition against Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 this year. The Frostbite 2 engine makes that game stand out from previous shooters. It looks absolutely gorgeous and seems Danger Close are really trying to achieve new heights with this game.

    Check out the campaign gameplay demo:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baS1CiL_rjU

    Everything is destroyable and shatters into tiny bits on repeated fire. Even the chandeliers swing in reaction to the shots being fired! CoD's old engine might just cost them this time around (probably not).

    Warfighter is also set to bring an international experience to both online and offline gameplay as the developers Danger Close are incorporating 12 different Tier 1 military teams from 10 different countries in the game. It’s a cool concept, giving everyone a chance to represent their country.

    Also I like the little bits of detail they have added, like the different choices when breaching a door. You have choices from kicking the door down to throwing a frag grenade or flashbang. Depending on what method you choose the following gameplay will be different.

    The game is set to be released on the 23rd of October 2012, almost 2 weeks before Black Ops 2 comes out. A smart move I might add since it is nearly impossible to directly compete with Call of Duty, especially this time when Treyarch is adamantly claiming that Black Ops 2 would be the biggest game of the franchise.

    If you are excited for both Medal of Honer: Warfighter and Black Ops 2 you will need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. These mods are likely to be fully functioning in Black Ops 2, so be prepared for the release by ordering one these controllers today.
