Medal of Honor: Warfighter partners with Linkin Park
When you think of Medal of Honor and the prestige the series has brought to war veterans since its uprising on PS one, don’t you also think of Linkin Park? If the answer is a resounding “NO”, then you are likely the target audience for EA’s latest marketing partnership initiative for the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Normally, new song or album releases are announced to the world via a partnership with a big retailer such as Amazon, or one of those big box stores stamped into shopping plazas placed atop freshly deforested land. The Redwood Shores, Ca publisher knows a thing or two about crossing music with video games after managing to dethrone Guitar Hero with Rock Band.
Linkin Park is also no stranger to the video game industry. Back in 2010, with the help of mobile game developer Artificial Live Inc, Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion was released for iPhone.
For Medal of Honor: Warfighter, expect to hear some new tracks from the music group. Greg Goodrich, executive producer of Medal of Honor, shares his feelings on the epic collaboration:
Partnering with them for the Medal of Honor Warfighter soundtrack and the ‘CASTLE OF GLASS’ music video is a natural fit for us. We have shared values and respect for these heroes from many different nations – and their families – who serve on our behalf around the world.
Mike Shinoda, the co-producer and co-lead vocalist for Linkin Park, has been credited with creating original scores for Warfighter that will add “depth and emotion” to Danger Close Games‘ kill-tastic first person shooter.
