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.
