Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Medal of Honor: Warfighter's Richard Farrelly Talks Differentiating Itself From the Competition, Frostbite 2.0 & More
Written By
View author's profile

Medal of Honor: Warfighter's debut showing at GDC might not have wowed the pants off of us - aside from the pretty phenomenal capabilities of the Frostbite 2.0 engine - but that doesn't seem to be dampening the spirits of Danger Close.

We caught up with the game's Senior Creative Designer, Richard Farrelly, recently to delve a little deeper into the game and how it's shaping up.

We touch base with Farrelly on how they intend to separate themselves from the competition, the emphasis on authenticity, how they're getting on with the Frostbite 2.0 engine and whether they're benefitting from developing both the single-player and multiplayer.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is scheduled for an October 23rd and October 26th release in North America and Europe respectively.

First two comments on spam? Does that mean X360A has made it big?

dont worry they differentiated themselves enough with their last disgrace of a game which was literally a campaign on rails that you didnt even have to fire a shot most of the time

99% of the time you just camp behind a rock and wait for the timed battle to finish and all the enemies just magically die/disappear lol

Differentiating itself from the competition? We've already seen the frostbite engine in battlefield. Going against the confirmed black ops 2 and we still have to see with battlefield 4
the argument has always been MW3 vs. BF3 not MW3 vs. BF3 vs Medal of Honor

My pallet is huge this fall. Ac3 halo 4 bio shock infinite. This sounds decent but I'll probably have to wait. The first still stings a little

@#4 That's funny because I spent almost 2 hours sitting behind a rock while a mounted gun pinned me and my NPC teammates did nothing. Also the games story felt real and emotional. I bet if your parents died you wouldn't feel a thing.

@ #8

He wasn't talking about the Battlefield 3 campaign, he was talking about the Medal of Honor 2010 campaign...

@8 wrong game sorry. It's okay I know how much you love to bitch about battlefield.

Medal of Honor is a washed up watered down clunky version of battlefield. Plus the multiplayer is pure horseshit. I'm not sure about this one.

Differentiate? Right, you mean like having an obvious Captain Price rip off in your game? I swear, EA and their devs, mostly EA are acting like a bunch of brats, they always smack talk CoD claiming their horrible games are the "CoD killer". This game has a snowball's chance in hell, considering it's released Between Bioshock and CoD, two FPS juggernauts.

@13 nope. BF3 was suppose to smash cod but look what happened. It didnt do shit lol. I have played bf3 and it is the most boring game i have EVER played and it is so unorganized(multiplayer wise). On top of that the game takes absolutely no skill. Have a nice day.

Colby is obviously trolling, and is a cod fanboy. COD died when MW2 came out and I was long time fan of COD and I was very disappointed. COD has become a game that's campaign is like a Micheal Bay movie after he had few to many, and multiplayer has become an unskilled, modding, hacking, lag switch using troll heaven and is inhabited by; illiterate jersey douche bags, and kids who think because the have a good k/d ratio they are so gangsta. I have been playing games since the original NES came out, and I have to say as a true hardcore gamer, and family gamer the community for video games sucks. BF3 mp is good, but it's main problem is glitches. Like all shooters now COD, and Crysis 2 had potential but hasn't lived up to it's potential. Homefront was killed by the terrible servers,and the gears mp was destroyed by the unbalanced weapons (gears 2 had the best competitive mp of the series). Halo reaches mp was just wrecked by the kill registry, but in the end I still play these because I play for the love of the game and to enjoy my time with my wife and friends. All games have there faults but when it comes down to it, it's the community itself that is the one that is destroying the video game industry. NOT just developers. (Also EA IS A PUBLISHER NOT A DEVELOPER, so if your gonna blame anybody blame the dev's not the publishers.)

I do wish that MoH would've beaten CoD to the punch and made a future shooter first. Because as we all know, CoD is a trend-setter, and the next MoH/Battlefield will, in my opinion, probably be set in the future.

It's not the worst thing in the world though I suppose, over saturation of modern military shooters was killing me.

Releasing a couple of weeks before COD.

EA did that with BF3 to try and up sales and the game needed a fuck load of patching to fix stuff.

Lets hope MOHWF doesn't have the same issues, but its gonna get fucked over by COD and Halo 4, I can't see servers being to full.

@5 You must be young; a long time ago it was all about MOH. Excellent games on the PS1.

I'd love the reintroduction of the 'medal' system and espionage levels, where you'd pose as the enemy.

CoD & Battlefield fanboys are the most fickle gamers in the world. The last CoD will always be better than the new CoD, but the new CoD will always be better than Battlefield, the last Battlefield will always be better than the new Battlefield and will always be better than CoD. Yet games like Medal of Honor (the grandfather of them both, do your homework, the first CoD was built off the MoH engine), always get overshadowed just because their not neither.
