With less than a month and a half remaining before Medal of Honor: Warfighter makes its debut, EA released two more trailers today for the highly-anticipated title – one discussing the topic of fireteams, and the other interviewing an actual soldier who had contributed in the design and concept of Warfighter. This comes right after the Osama-themed Zero Dark Thirty DLC was announced, a collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment promoting the film of the same name.
Fireteams, according to EA, are the best examples of Tier 1 Operators, and key participants in the battle, despite being composed of only two members. These duos, said EA, “act as lookouts and defensive cover on the field of battle. In operation after operation, soldiers organized in Fireteams have proven significantly more effective compared to larger units.” Talking about the video itself, an actual Navy SEAL Team 6 operator was interviewed, with his voice conveniently disguised for privacy purposes. Teamwork was the main theme of the Fireteams video – these “everyday guys with everyday jobs” are expected to communicate effectively and act quickly regardless of the situation. As you can see, all the gunfire and stealthy maneuvers depicted are “all in a day’s work” for the average Navy SEAL.
The second video is entitled “Meet Rofo” – again, the man interviewed for the video had his voice altered and his face obscured to protect his identity. Rofo, an Australian Green Beret fighter, is another individual who had apparently played a huge role in making Warfighter a realistic simulation of real-world battle, and he discussed the importance of fighting through pain and withholding one’s opinions and political beliefs for the good of the team. EA’s description of Rofo says that he has fought for the Australian Special Forces as a Recon specialist – truly, he sounds like someone whose real-life experience could only make Medal of Honor: Warfighter the most accurate war-themed shooter out there.
In case you forgot, Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be out on October 23.
