With the Xbox 360 Medal of Honor Warfighter exclusive beta, players can now get an early start to the game’s multiplayer mode before the October 23 release date. Today, Xbox Live members can download the multiplayer beta and experience just a small part of what Warfighter’s online mode has to offer. EA and developer Danger Close are hoping the beta will pique the interest of many gamers and sell them on a unique first-person experience on the Xbox 360.
In the beta, players will be unlocking 12 out of a total 72 Tier-1 operators that are available in the retail release. As an interesting take on multiplayer players will operate as Fireteams, a unit of two that is a “team within the team.” As a member of a Fireteam you can see your buddy anywhere on the map, use them as a spawn point, and (most importantly) protect their back. Players will also have access to six classes and all the weapons for the Assaulter class are unlocked for this beta.
Another feature available in the Xbox 360 Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta will be the Battlelog. This function not only contains the Warfighter Nations metagame but will also keep you updated on all your stats for Medal of Honor Warfighter plus any news about the game. The beta will be available in English, German, and French however your progression and stats will reset before launch and not carry over into the full game. So beta Warfighter players won’t have too much of a leg up on those who didn’t participate.
If you preorder Medal of Honor Warfighter on Xbox 360 then you will receive access to the limited edition of the game plus a host of extras at no additional cost. Not only will you get access to the much sought after Battlefield 4 beta when it becomes available but also a Day 1 unlock of the U.S. Navy Seal Sniper unit for multiplayer. As additional incentive to preorder, buyers will get the Zero Dark Thirty DLC at no extra cost when it is released in December.
