Medal of Honor 2 unveil teased for March 6

Electronic Arts signaling new entry in shooter series to be unveiled early next month during 2012 Game Developers Conference.

by

Gamers thirsting for more information about the confirmed sequel to 2010's Medal of Honor reboot don't have much longer to wait.

It appears Medal of Honor 2 will blow its cover next month.

A "save the date" invitation sent to GameSpot indicates EA will take the wraps off a Medal of Honor sequel on March 6 in San Francisco. That puts the reveal during the 2012 Game Developers Conference, which runs March 5-9 in San Francisco.

Medal of Honor--a reboot of the long-running shooter series--was released in 2010 to a warm critical reception and went on to ship 5 million copies. Last month, a tweet from United Kingdom retailer GAME suggested EA would release the Medal of Honor sequel in 2012.

I loved the single player in MOH 2010 it's better than the others though it did lag behind the others in Multiplayer

I thought medal of honor 2010 had a MUCH better campaign than CoD, but the multiplayer was a bit short lived, for the next one, i would like more guns and equipment, but not too many like CoD, and I think instead of capping the rank for each class at 15, it should be 30 or 40, I hope you are listening DICE.

Medal is better then call of duty always have ben since the ps2 and x-box days yall just so hung on cod u forgot how good medal of honor really is

2010's Medal of Honor was total piece of bug filled garbage. If they want this to succeed they'll need to fix all the issues from the previous release and add some really innovative gameplay features to the game to make it stand out. I sure hope EA gets it right this time around or they won't smell my $59.99. Don't even get me started on the price point of recent games.

Since Call of Duty and Battlefield were cloned from the Medal of Honor Series I can't really call it another Call of Duty. But that is what it looks like.

@GodGundamNT1 You realise that Battlefield 3 used the Frostbite 2 engine, so it's not exactly new?

If it's softcore than ARMA, it's relatively all in the realm of arcade game. Anyway, I like moh mp over bf, as it's much more realistic atmosphere, much more intense CQB, somewhat similar to cod but feels realistic and authentic. I guess ppl who likes rainbow six series and cod playstyle would like the series over bf.

Dude no need to be miserable this time Medal of Honor is going to be powered by the Frostbyte 2 3d engine and its going to crap all over your precious Call of Duty franchise.

Not buying it waste of my hard earned money especially when it came to multiplayer. i mean when MOH 2010 came out i couldn't wait to get it played the Single Player yeah ok has some rough aspects but awell very awesome story. But the multiplayer complete garbage including support of EA and DICE

The last MOH left a bad taste in my mouth. Unless they go back to WW1/WW2 themes I'll wait on this.

God, I can't wait! Medal of Honor was one of my favorite games from this generation. I just hope this time they give us a longer campaign.

Had fun with MOH but DLC support dried up shortly after release...not to mention EA and Dice raised the bar pretty high with BF3.... not sure what MOH2 would have to offer....

Bought MoH for the PC on the day of release but never played it probaly wont now.

@leviathan_wing I'll put in short since your reading comprehension also isn't doing so great. The new MoH is just like CoD, all flashy explosions with no sense in it. Those missions you stated happen in every war. Ambushes, securing supply lines, recon, it's all familiar in war. It was generic, unlike the older MoH who used actual mission to base the story as far as i know. I don't know what happened in Afghan war, but i know MoH is way out of it. In a different matter, forget about the story, what really pissed me off was the complete change of game engine they made, that simply made me hate that game even more. They should've stayed in WW2 shooters...

@deathcon4 I had my surround sound on at that moment and was literally crapping my pants.. Excellent level! Thank god for the Apaches :D

I remember the one part where your defending a little house and you had the insurgents coming down the mountain. It was one of the first times ever in a game where I had to make every bullet count, every piece of cover needed to be used and realistic combat tactics had to be applied. I thought it was a good game, hard to compare with CoD because its at its peak with the MW series. You have to see them both as very different games I guess. One takes on a more realistic story-telling approach and the other is an epic action packed modern arcade shooter. This doesn't mean that one is better than the other only they have different sub-genres.

I can honestly say that while Medal of Honor was really short I enjoyed the game a lot. I especially liked the controls: being able to slide behind cover, switching gun modes via middle click etc. I also, actually liked the story, even if Rabbit didn't talk. That's fine with me. If danger close puts a little more content and replayability into the second game I'm sold.

pedrote

Danger Close, if you want to make MoH 2 and little bit more realistic and epic, don't feature playable characters that can't even say a single word. In MoH, at some point in the campaign, when "Rabbit" dies, it is intended to make you feel something for him, sadness or whatever, well... thats stupid, how can I feel something for someone who has the attitude of a BRICK, who doesn't even talk or makes a single opinion about anything. Not to mention for those who remember that scene when your squadmate climbs up a wall. If you do, remember that when you are just about to do the same thing, he lends you his hand. WHAT THE--- did my US soldier skipped any training class that he can't even jump a single wall by himself? IMO, MoH 2010 was really cool, but it could have been better. I'm expecting more from this MoH 2.

Meh, there's certainly gonna be an expansion for BF3 around that time so yeah...

i know a good way to make ths shooter different. dont make the MP into a player vs player. make it a campaign MP where players work together in teams. its not something new but if you can make it to where its hard and challengeing enough that each player have to support each other and work together will make this game a great game and not just 2 people playing more like a whole team of 4 or more or maybe even more then that like 2 team or more and also make the campaign longer.

leviathan_wing

@Raxyman your reading comprehension could use some tweaking... he said some, and so you decided to point out the one that didnt occur... using the exception as the rule to make your point. however there was a mission to extract a squad from a skirmish with 100+ op forces. he meant more in lines with the taking of the air strip, or the ambush in the city, recon and taking the supply route out... e.t.c. those are the ones off the top of my head.

I don't know i anyone noticed but the "Related game" section shows the most recent game but says it was released in 1999 in Europe....... But anyway, Medal of Honor (or Honour in English English) had very good story, writing, voice acting, graphics and multiplayer ( like CoD but a bit more organised) but too bad the singleplayer gameplay was a bit lacking

famoussasjohn
famoussasjohn

I loved the single player. I wanted it to be longer, but it had a lot of emotional times in the story for being a short story. The MP was good, but the snipers in the game just racking up kill streaks by camping made it not as fun because they would be camping from their spawn. Hopefully this time around the sniper class isn't as overpowered as it was. Was there bullet drop in MoH since DICE did the MP? I didn't like the feel from switching from SP to MP because it was way too different.

I wouldn't mind seeing MoH being the dominant War Game because it should easily push BF3 and MW3 to the side for abit anyways..

As usual so many conflicting opinions. Thats alright but I would like to see just how old alot of you are in comparison to education and experience. I played the first MOH 2010 and IMO I liked it very much. I also have played all the COD series games aand the obvious related additon of BF3, which for the record is far too scrped, and glitchy as all get out. It was good overall but I was slightly dissappointed it was not more polished. I do not play MP games much at all any more ,due to my age I suspect, and not wanting to converse with so many immature younger dudes. I have like Thousands of dollars of all the best FPC games made. I am experieced at what I see and play. I agree some of these games have chessy dialog at times but i just go on and play the game. For the kiddos who even had the gall to compare a past lame editon of MOH AA to anything like today is just plain nuts. You can pick that up for like $1.00 somewheres. Al in all I am loooking forward also to this game coming out. Please.. people be at least somewhat objective and quit comparing one series to some other or one game to the next. Let it stand on its own merit.

@marvelx3 Damn straight. At least there's some gamers out there in the world with sense. The single player campaign was solid.

Why all the hate for Medal of Honor? :| I played the last one and absolutely loved it, the single player was brilliant and actually believable (possibly due to the fact the missions were based on those from real-life scenarios), and the multiplayer was a blast of fresh air. I for one can't wait for the next installment. Until MoH was re-released I'd pretty much lost all hope in EA and yet I was left pleasantly surprised. It was a damn good game, and I look forward to the sequel. Let the kids have their blockbuster-esque Call of Duty, I've long moved on.. Medal of Honor has taken it's place.

shameless waste of money on brand names. Like toilet humour movies aimed at the lowest form of life, you are officially looking at the game industry version. Mindless war propaganda tacked onto a successful franchise logo lead by game designers so devoid of talent or inspiration that it makes you wonder how they ever got into the industry let alone into a AAA studio. There are community mods that are more interesting to play AND with more stable builds than most AAA titles coming out these days... throw all that money at some of those guys instead of the useless designers and coders they have right now.

@Abolfazl3007 Agreed... Airbourne was the last MoH to me...

NO please. Stop. I know many of you are in the hype with Dice's BF3, but please, don't do another MoH game, let the franchise rest in peace as one of the best FPSs from all time, instead of the new one that they branded as "CoD killer" is in fact a "CoD copy". @GpVon Really? So 4 soldiers DID survive a wave of a hundred Quaeda soldiers armed with rpgs? I'm mentioning that mountain scene, for those who don't remember it. The WW2 classics MoH were based in facts, this new is a crappy hollywoodian war game for people who want to "rack up their KDR".

i enjoyed previous installments very much i hope this is the same stuff, BF is good too, cod im now getting used to online and i enjoy that also. They each have varied, styles of play and realism, you either like it or you don't or if like me enjoy all of them !! :)

BF3 seems like a MOH reboot to me. I saw more similarities with MOH and BF3 than BFBC2 and BF3. I guess now they want to put this new one on the Frostbite 2 engine as well. Why? Other than the Afghanistan locale, there was nothing really that great about the first MOH. If they GREATLY improve enemy AI and hit detection, maybe this can make a decent rebirth. I don't want to have to beg for ammo from my teammates either. I mean, do I have 6-7 mags and they have 30? Get real. @dpak1170 The video above is from the 2010 review of the first MOH.

FULL CAMPAIGN CO-OP ALREADY!!!!! here is your chance to offer something CoD has still failed to deliver...get it done, if i run through en entire game with a NPC, why cant we use a live player instead....I loved Medal of Honor, and the multiplayer was very well done as well...JUST GIVE US CO-OP already

I think DICE is going right way with the IP, different from BF, but sense of realism, harshier than any arcade military fps in the market that can be enjoyed for intensive pvp cqb. This time around fluid human like animation for MP, and realistic weapon handling, and kick back, manual weapon recoil handling would be nice.. I like moh over bf as it's much more intense, if you get out in the open, you'll eat dirt as a matter of seconds. It's hardcore, much more intense, makes you go from cover to cover always, force you to raise the situational awareness all the time.

"Release: Oct 31, 1999 " it says about the predecessor in the top left corner, but I thought this was a sequel to the MoH that came in october 2010. Oh well, I'm not interested in it anyway, just thought it was odd.

@GpVon And from your time in the army did you ever constantly hear lame lines like "I spot a rabbit", "Down one bogey" and numerous other cheesy dialogue like in MoH? Edit: Every few seconds like in MoH?

Huh. Well, they should just put a bullet in the head of this series. The reboot was a mess. Online play was lackluster at best, and the single player mode was WAY to quick and easy to beat, even on veteran level. All in all, it felt like an extremely rushed product.

As a former U.S. Army Ranger (2nd Batt/75th Reg. attached to 29th LRS ) I found it nice to be saving the Seals for once........And for those of you that don't know, alot of the missions in this version of MoH were ACTUAL missions executed in Afghanistan. Gamers keep saying they want realism........most most of them don't really.......they just want to rack up thier KDR.

bad company was drop dead awful and the last medal of honor, drop dead cheesy and awful. ARMA 2 has bad bad voice acting, but it at least tries to portray a realistic situation which it does successfully. Medal Of Honor allied Assault at least tried SOMETIMES to portray an interesting experience instead of the cheesy dialogue and hollywood gay story lines they seem to want to give FPS's in the last few years. Yep Modern Warfare 2 and 3 included.. If they want to do Hollywood i recommend them watch Die Hard series a few hundred times to see how its actually done.

@marvelx3 Really? I found it to be super corny. The script was just terrible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciHjzDSC_1Q Watch that and listen to the script closely...there's other missions that are even cornier. Just my opinion though...I'm glad you enjoyed it.
