If you are like me, you probably have a strange, unhealthy addiction to FPS games. I honestly can’t remember the last time that I finished a single player campaign in a FPS game, either, as I tend to get them and immediately hop online into matchmaking mode and start shooting people. It could very well be the gentrification of man’s spirit, or simply how the modern, testosterone-filled male gets his fill of excitement and aggression out in a world where cubicle decorations are now the norm. Of course, let us not forget our female friends as well, as they too feel that same need sometimes.
Reflecting, I’m pretty certain that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was the last time that I finished a FPS game’s single player. If any FPS game of the sort since has had a truly amazing single player experience, I wouldn’t know. I’ve trolled around in just about every game’s single player in instances where the antiquated lines from my phone company to my house force our DSL to go out, but the love affair is brief and rather sordid. My point here is that I play Battlefield 3 and I play it a lot.
When I hear that Battlefield 4’s beta will be out in Fall of 2013, I immediately demand to know how I gain access, and luckily enough, today is that lucky day. EA announced today that included with the purchase of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition will be access to the fourth installment to the Battlefield franchise’s beta release. Both series are utilizing the Frostbite 2 engine, which makes them kindred spirits in the eyes of EA, and as it should. Medal of Honor Warfighter is without a doubt one of the more exciting releases for FPS fans this year and adding an incentive like the Battlefield 4 beta makes it a can’t miss for fans of either (or both) series.
Medal of Honor Warfighter is being developed by Danger Close Games and will be released in North America on October 23rd and in Europe on October 26th. It will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
