Electronic Arts ci informa che Medal of Honor, lo sparatutto in soggettiva sviluppato da Danger Close con la collaborazione di DICE, sta riscuotendo un importante risultato di marketing.

Nel Regno Unito infatti sono state vendute oltre 1 milione e mezzo di copie nei primi 5 giorni di vendita, secondo la fonte accreditata di GfK.

Allo stesso modo è stato annunciato un contenuto aggiuntivo scaricabile (DLC) gratuito per Playstation 3 e Xbox 360 a partire dal 2 Novembre 2010 denominato Clean Sweep, una inedita modalità di gioco nella quale le due fazioni devono ripulire velocemente l’area di gioco per potersi aggiudicare la vittoria senza possibiltà di rientrare in partita dopo essere stati uccisi (no respawn). Le nuove mappe interessate in questa modalità sono Bagram Hangar e Khyber Caves, a cui se ne aggiungono altre 2 che sono riprese dalle mappe Diwagal Camp e Kabul City riviste per l’occasione dalla campagna in singolo giocatore.


E’ richiesto il PASS Online. Non è stata annunciata una versione per Personal Computer del suddetto contenuto aggiuntivo.

Medal of Honor Sells More Than 1.5 Million Units in First 5 Days

Guildford, UK., – October 19, 2010 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS), announced today that Medal of HonorTM has claimed the #1 chart position in the UK according to official GfK-ChartTrack data. In just five days since launching in the U.S. and with just two days of sales in Europe and Asia, the game has already sold through more than 1.5M units. EA also announced that the first-person shooter will expand with the release of an all-new explosive multiplayer mode on November 2, 2010. The free* multiplayer mode titled Clean Sweep is an elimination mode where players must rely on their own skill and teammates’ expertise to prevail as the winning team. This exhilarating mode is playable across two all-new maps (Bagram Hangar and Khyber Caves) as well as redesigned versions of the popular Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins maps. Clean Sweep will be available on November 2 via Xbox LIVETM®Network to owners of Medal of Honor with Online Pass.

Frank Gibeau, President at EA stated, “Medal of Honor is one of EA’s most storied franchises and we’re thrilled to see that fans worldwide have embraced it. In this ultra competitive category, Medal of Honor stands out from the pack. By portraying the Tier 1 Operator as so elite, so tough, Medal of Honor offers a view into a world that has the power to resonate with FPS gamers everywhere.”

Developed by DICE, Medal of Honor multiplayer delivers world-class First Person Shooter action and dedicated server support with all of the same authentic settings, weapons and realistic action depicted in the single-player game. For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the WWII theatre and enters the modern setting of war-torn Afghanistan. The game is told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters. Medal of Honor introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior and relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military that operates under the National Command Authority to take on missions no one else can handle.
