Linkin Park Looks to Add "Depth And Emotion" To Warfighter

EA is trying to deliver an emotional, authentic military experience with Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and they've tapped Linkin Park to help.

Developer Danger Close has announced a cross-collaboration between the upcoming Warfighter and one of the most popular rock bands in the world. The band's co-producer and co-lead vocalist Mike Shinoda has composed original in-game scores for the game, and they're designed to "add depth and emotion to an already intense gameplay experience."

EA has also produced Linkin Park's latest music video, "Castle of Glass," which will be featured in the game as well (and is part of their new #1 album, "Living Things"). The video examines the life of a soldier and shows the sacrifices they and their families must make on a consistent basis. The video is produced by Danger Close and Digital Domain.

Below is a brief behind-the-scenes look along with the video.

When you lose an online match all you can hear is:

"In the end, it doesn't even matter!"

Here's another from the same song:

"One thing, I don't know why, it doesn't even matter how hard I try. Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to remind myself why I quit playing military FPS games."

Cool, I like Linkin Park. I have all of their albums, including their newest. I don't care for their rap stuff but everything else is good by me =)

..as for MoH,
I haven't played a MoH since Allied Assault and Frontline, but the new photo realistic story trailer looked good.

I haven't listened to LP in years, I have the first album they did and enjoyed it, but I didn't like the other albums they made so I basically stopped listening to them.

Sometimes I would listen to the first album though, which I liked.

I also haven't played a MoH game in some time.

Hard to do when your music lacks depth and emotion.

I clicked this hoping it wasn't that Linkin Park, but hey if generic is what your aiming for they picked the right band. Yeah...the words depth and emotion surely aren't the first words that come to my mind when I hear their name.

Actually their music is becoming more and more about depth and emotion. :)

Maybe what the developer wants is for you to feel like you're inside a Michael Bay film.

I have a Hybrid Theory ones but in the end I just give it away. Because I've discover Deftones and Paparoach.

I still have no interest in this game... but that's a genre thing, it's got nothing to do with the soundtrack.

I've enjoyed all Linkin Park's albums. I'll always have a soft spot for their earlier work. But I think this new direction has been a smart move for them, especially for Chester. I mean, he's had freakin throat ulcer's and throat surgery... dude really needed to tone it down.

I'm not sure if my comment holds much relevance considering I'm not a big fan of MoH, but I am a big fan of LP (yes, even their new stuff ;)

I've listened to their new album (Living Things) and overall it is more mature and I THINK it holds more depth, which makes sense considering it's been many years since their Hybrid Theory days...

Anyway, I'm intrigued to see where this is going (even though I know their will be negative backlash).

Linkin Park was involved in the marketing of the 'reboot' MoH back in 2010 as well. They're not really my style of music, but it's kinda cool how there's some continuity of marketing over time - shows that Danger Close has a vision :).

Bands like Foo Fighters evolve and bands like Linkin Park sell out. They used to be good. So did military shooters till they started coming out with a new COD and Battlefield every month. Now Medal of Honor??? C'mon people. We can have such better games and original ideas. Stop supporting what is basically rehash with a fresh coat of paint. Last one I played one Modern War 2. Think I'm keeping it that way till next gen and we see some REAL improvements in AI and graphics.
