Electronic Arts‘ Medal of Honor: Warfighter is teaming up with hugely popular rock group Linkin Park in some sort of collaboration. What exactly is the nature of the team-up we cannot say — because all that was released is the very vague video featured above. It’s filled with a ton of posing, some melodic notes taken from Linkin Park’s current album, and a date (October), but nothing concrete.
Our best guess, which is pretty much anyone’s guess, is that Linkin Park will be supporting Medal of Honor: Warfighter in some musical capacity. They have been known to lend their musical talents to the scores of major motion pictures, most notably the Transformers franchise, and even released their own mobile game, Linkin Park’s 8-Bit Rebellion. Needless to say, they’ve always been interested in branching out.
The most likely partnership between the two would see Linkin Park once again providing the music for a Medal of Honor live-action trailer. Back when the first Medal of Honor was gearing up for release, a trailer was unveiled that served as both a music video (for one of the band’s new songs ‘The Catalyst’) and a lengthy story trailer. It featured a combination of in-game footage, showcasing the game’s Tier 1 Operators working their way through a desert landscape, and live-action simulations of similar events.
We’ll know more about the nature of this partnership come October, as the trailer reveals, which also happens to be the month when Warfighter releases. So far, Warfighter is shaping up to be a vast improvement over its predecessor, outlined most apparently by its adoption of DICE’s Frostbite 2.0 engine. Needless to say the game looks great in trailers and during demos running the PC version, but the verdict is still out on the final product.
