EA, Linkin Park: "One-Of-A-Kind" Medal Of Honor Trailer
Gaming is big business. ...we have to keep repeating that because there are bound to be a bunch of people going, "whoa, so like, bands as big as Linkin Park are like, in video games?" And for the record, the word "like" is starting to irk me.
EA has announced a collaboration with Grammy-award winning rock band Linkin Park for the benefit of the upcoming modern-day shooter, Medal of Honor. The popular group will headline the in-game soundtrack for the game but as an added bonus, the lead song to their new album, "A Thousand Suns," will be featured in EA's project. It's called "The Catalyst" and you can hear it below in an all-new, freshly released trailer. This trailer you see here is a "unique first-of-its-kind mix of live footage and intense modern military action from the Medal of Honor game," and it was directed by the band's Joe Hahn. For more, head to the official site. Said Hahn:
"This is a unique, creative association for us and a collaboration that we are excited about. The opportunity to help introduce 'The Catalyst' via the new Medal of Honor game creates a new bond between EA, our fans, and the band's overall vision for the new digital frontier. We are enormously proud of the music on A Thousand Suns and are excited to have created an exclusive trailer around the lead track."
For the record, Linkin Park was recently named the #1 selling Rock/Alternative Band of the Decade by SoundScan/Billboard, amassing more than 50 million sales worldwide. As for MoH, as if you needed to be reminded, the newest effort is the first in the franchise to focus on a war other than World War II. This time, it's all about the modern war on terror and it's centered in Afghanistan. You will step into the boots of the elite Tier 1 Operator, and the U.S. Military has indeed played a correspondent role in the development of this game.
