Medal of Honour: Warfighter announced by EA

The next instalment of Medal of Honour will hit shelves in October, it has been confirmed.

Electronic Arts has confirmed that a new Medal of Honour title is on the way, hitting shelves in October.

Medal of Honour: Warfighter is a sequel to the 2010 reboot of the popular game, which soon found itself eclipsed by Activision's Call of Duty franchise and the Battlefield titles.

While taking these two on may seem a daunting challenge, EA has used the same Frostbite 2 engine that powers Battlefield 3 in Warfighter.

There was a suggestion that the Battlefield link would be further strengthened by using game developer DICE, but EA has now confirmed that Warfighter will be done in-house, at Danger Close studios.

The planned multiplayer version will also be done at Danger Close, apparently due to fan demand.

EA has promised that it will release more details about the title at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco next month.

As for Battlefield 3, DICE community manager Daniel Matros has released a large list of fixes and tweaks scheduled for the title in the coming weeks.

The extensive list covers almost all aspects of the game play, including use of weapons, vehicles, and general tweaks to the flow of the game.

For example, the new update will ensure that players do not take health damage when falling short distances, allowing them to get up faster from the prone position, and ensure that spawn protection is not cancelled by looking around.

The amount of black screen fade time has also been reduced when spawning, while there are numerous other fixes and improvements.

Mr Matros adds that DICE will continue to work on other aspects of the gameplay even once this update is applied.

"Also please remember that the content in this list might be changed but of course, we will also keep you in the loop about this," he said.

"While there still is no ETA on the patch, we're still working on improving online gameplay for all of our dear community members. So far, this list is for all three platforms (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)."ADNFCR-1220-ID-801302504-ADNFCR
