Medal of Honor Warfighter Xbox 360 open beta starts Friday

EA's initial reboot of the Medal of Honor series failed to win hearts and minds and chip away at Call of Duty's domination of the modern-day face-shooting market, but it's not deterred so easily. Come Friday, we'll get to have a good hard look at its second attempt, when the Medal of Honor Warfighter multiplayer open beta launches exclusively on Xbox 360.

EA's initial reboot of the Medal of Honor series failed to win hearts and minds and chip away at Call of Duty's domination of the modern-day face-shooting market, but it's not deterred so easily. Come Friday, we'll get to have a good hard look at its second attempt, when the Medal of Honor Warfighter multiplayer open beta launches exclusively on Xbox 360.

The beta packs one map, Sarajevo Stadium, for the Hotspot mode, where soldiers attack and defend random points. All six classes and all twelve Tier 1 Operators (skins, really) are included.

Medal of Honor Warfighter is headed to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 23. If you pre-order the Limited Edition, which costs $10 more than the regular, you'll score guaranteed access to the Battlefield 4 beta, whenever that starts.

      Is it just me or does it seem like there's zero buzz around this game?
      EA must be sweating bullets if that's the case.

        I don't understand why there's buzz for any modern combat fps these days. That genre's been milked almost more than the zombie genre.

            Feels like that was over done as well. Korean War, maybe?

      any idea how you get into this? or do we just look for an icon on the dashboard or something?

        Dashboard I would imagine under demos.

        From the main menu dashboard, go to "Games" and from there to the Game Marketplace. On that screen, find "Demos" and then select "New Demos". If that dosen't work, just keep looking around on the demo section. That's what I do.
