Medal of Honor: Warfighter Videosplosion, Plus Beta Update Detailed
Written Friday, October 12, 2012 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Blimey, EA loves a Medal of Honor: Warfighter vid, doesn't it?
Yesterday, a couple of new vids hit but we chucked them in the video channel rather than cover them because, well, neither was much to do with the actual game.
Today, however, there’s a new vid focusing on the correct way to breach and clear a room, according to those friendly SEAL Team 6 chaps. Which is relevant to the game! Yay!
So, in the interest of fairness - and because fuck it why not - we’ve chucked all three vids below. WARNING: One of them is a Linkin Park music video and another features ex-Spurs striker and charisma vacuum Darren Bent.
In addition to all this EA has also rolled out a server update for Warfighter’s multiplayer beta, focusing on matchmaking and spawning issues.
"Thank you all for your continuous feedback!" said developer Danger Close in a post on Battlelog.
"We're a little over the halfway mark of our beta and have learned a ton so far. The team at Danger Close is constantly reading over community reports and comments from the Battlelog forums, and consistently watching over in-game telemetry.
“Apart from this feedback helping us fine-tune the main game, we're also making changes throughout the beta itself. Our latest server update that just rolled out focuses on matchmaking and spawning issues."
Here’s a breakdown of the improvements, in Danger Close’s very own words.
We've received a ton of feedback on our spawn mechanic! It was clear that the initial system occasionally placed players too close to harm's way. This new update changes where you spawn in vs. the proximity of enemy players when using fallback spawn. We are also investigating Fireteam spawns for the final game.
We've listened to your feedback regarding weapons and have tweaked them accordingly.
We've addressed some issues regarding player connectivity and should have a more stable connection to game servers.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is out on October 26th.
