Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that the hit first-person shooter Medal of HonorTM will further expand its intense multiplayer experience with the release of an all-new multiplayer mode on November 2, 2010.
They need to do something because it doesn't look like this game is doing so good
Making a pay to play game mode less than a month after release when your game already has fewer game modes than competing products is flat out retarded.
Its not that bad seeing that they will have a free pack coming at the same time and the fact that new maps in most games today usually cost money... The new map that has been shown looks pretty well done if you ask me btw. Theres also going to be a patch for PC which nerfs snipers and fixes some issues and I bet there will be a patch for consoles too. So, all together you will get 4 new maps, 2 remade maps, 2 new game modes, and a good patch all for a total cost of 10 bucks which seems like a fair deal to me.
Bad decision from EA. Those new modes/mappacks should be for free. Game is light on content and BO is just around the corner so the online component is going to suffer. I'm guessing they are happy with those 1.5m of copies sold and just want to milk the current userbase.
Good to see they're making a push against black ops
EA's blatant disregard for rental/used gamers has produced the current negative impact on MOH.
I think it's more that the brand isnt close to what it used to be, the game is average-good, nothing special and it's stuck right between Halo and COD. It's done perfectly well for EA though, I'd expect to see a sequel. Hopefully one running one engine developed by one team.
what EA should have stayed away from. this game needed more time, more maps, more modes and online/offiline same engine. i am glad someone want to take the fight to COD but than make sure your product is really AAA stuff. i don't play COD series but one thing i always see is how great it look, story 4 HRS long but ste price after set piece. and online is where you see people get addicted but with MOH they just took MW2's success and build a good not great game
since this game is out that it will be improved on and we will see a new MOH in 2011 like we really need more FPS. when EA delyed nba elite i was glad that game needed more time and now when it comes out in october 2011 as elite 2012 it will be a much better game. EA need to do their own thing with MOH a longer story and a better story is what i am looking for EA. also add more depth to online maps,modes and overall game
I can't wait for it!
I don't see how this helps their cause. Many people have either returned it or put it up for auction. Plus you have to pay for one of the map packs. This game needs a patch for consoles before COD comes out or the MoH servers will have such low numbers.
looks like theyre following the same route as BC2. which isnt good for anyone that owns MOH.
why it isnt good for me may i ask...
Here is why, you paid roughly $60.00 (US) for a short campaign and 4 or 5 game modes. Instead of including this game mode in the box they chose to hold out and add it as DLC that they are charging for. The multiplayer is decent but with broken spawns and lag and touchy hit detection it's not what you should be doing to a franchise that needs to be revived let alone it's fans. Sadly MW2 has more to offer out of the box. That says a lot right there!
The only thing Mw2 has over MoH is the Cod name thats it.... Buggy game glitches hacks and so on when it launch short campaign and 15 dollar map packs of 3 maps... 10 bucks for four new maps four revision maps and a game mode I think thats enough to warrant the price
It's your money, spend it how you want. If you value the product you purchase enough to justify the price then that's all you need. You asked why it wouldn't be good, so I just answered. Personally I think MW2 has more to offer str8 out the box than MOH does. Sure it has hacks and all the other stuff but so does MOH - expensive map packs.
Actually they are not really following the BC2 route. They are adding 4 new maps (which is something BC2 did not really get) and 4 redesigned ones (which is in the style of BC2). Also, one of these map packs is paid content, which is something new. All the BC2 map packs were free if you bought a new copy of BC2. This is a fail for EA/DICE. This game needs to be patched
Nah they aren't following the same route... BC2 is still fun.
freezing first. every time i want to play MP, i can guarantee that it's gonna freeze for a few seconds. IMO i think moh mp is a bastard child of cod/battlefield.
never had this issue... strange
The freezing is because of the friends list. Fallout 3 had the same issue, which they eventually patched. The game freezes whenever a buddy on your list either signs on or off.
I've had it, only on the console versions.
...are pretty low in terms of those playing the PS3 version on-line. Don't think Ive seen it get above 20k players yet. However, I wish they would patch the game. Sick of things like using the guided missile but then not being returned to FPS view or not spawning at the front line even though I'm selecting to.
Yeah man, I feel this game was rushed to get out before COD to try and steal some players. I think EA knew that releasing it after COD would be devestating for them. Point is, a lot of bugs and issues that make this game feel like a C list Battlefied. At least Black Ops is looking to be more balanced and a better experience then MW2.
Releasing it after COD is not devastating. If they gave it 6 more months, would have been much much better.
MoH has all the trademarks of a game that was rushed for release. Still have no word on a patch either. I really wish consoles would get decent lobby systems as well. Played Battlefield 2 on the PC over the weekend and was instantly reminded of what a lobby system should be. Keep the quick start options for consoles but also provide more advanced search techniques for those who want them.

medal of honor just completely failed now, 1st only providing 3 (or was it 4) game modes now charging us for more, honestly even mw2 have more modes compared to this and that game blows -_-
They should be giving it for free. I think with black ops coming out the following tuesday EA are making a mistake. Dice have let themselves down a bit with this game its not a turkey though it does become boring very quickly. After a good week of playing i m considerig trading this in if the new maps are small
"The four different game modes set against these maps are: Team Assault, which is your relatively standard team deathmatch. Combat Missions, which involve a series of escalating objectives that one side needs to accomplish and the other stop. Sector Control, which is exactly what it sounds like, and Objective Raid, which is a mix of Combat Missions and Sector Control in such that you need to hit different sector to accomplish missions." Even with adding this "Hot Zone" game type, these all sound very similar. All about holding some sort of position or blowing up something, which probably is almost the same as holding a position. I just remember, every time I played BFBC2, it felt like the same thing over and over, no matter what game type i was playing. The only different one is team deathmatch. But for some reason, no one ever played it and it too was really weird on BFBC2. Idk, I'm just saying, for only 4 or 5 game modes, I'd expect them to feel completely different. And one could argue that CoD has a lot of the same too. But their variants really do feel different and set apart from each other. I don't get the same feeling from domination as I do from headquarters or CTF. Even demolition and search and destroy feel different, even though they are pretty close. Not to mention hardcore modes, an actually exciting team deathmatch, and the best of all, free-for-all. How hard would it be to put free-for-all in MoH? And you get a lot more choice and maps out of the box. Again, I'm just saying.
