Medal of Honor sells 1.5 million units in first five days, new MP mode coming next month

Tuesday, 19th October 2010 18:05 GMT By Johnny Cullen


EA’s announced this evening Medal of Honor has sold 1.5 million units in its first five days on sale.

To celebrate, EA’s also confirmed it’s releasing an-all new multiplayer mode on November 2 called “Clean Sweep”, an elimination mode where players “must rely on their own skill and teammates’ expertise to prevail as the winning team.”

There’ll be two new maps also released to play the mode, known as Bagram Hangar and Khyber Caves.

The new content will be available for free if you redeemed your Online Pass that you got with the game.

“Medal of Honor is one of EA’s most storied franchises and we’re thrilled to see that fans worldwide have embraced it,” said EA Games boss Frank Gibeau.

“In this ultra competitive category, Medal of Honor stands out from the pack. By portraying the Tier 1 Operator as so elite, so tough, Medal of Honor offers a view into a world that has the power to resonate with FPS gamers everywhere.”

While Steam sales weren’t counted towards the sale totals (with the PC’s share listed at 5%) a look at Steam’s top games by current player count stats for today show Medal of Honor multiplayer sitting at the 20th spot. Its “peak” number of players online today – 3246. Top spot is Counter-Strike: Source with 68,200. MoH’s single player mode also appears on the chart further down at 32nd, with a peak of 1202 players online.

    For such weak game so much copies sold…

    I mean, people like to buy FPS games… No matter how good or shitty they are. Just market them right and here you go.

    Beat the SP today. Its far from being a bad game but it really isnt anything special. Its also insanely easy, i played on hard for my first playthrough and it was like playing any other FPS on normal.

    The singleplayer campaign was meh.. at best.

    First introduction was OK, next two days were…………… crap. SP was at the level of City Interactive shooters or any other Polish dev FPS games.

    I think at the beginning it does not matter whether it is good or bad. It is called “Medal of Honor”. That’s what counts during the first release days in my opinion.

    im 75% through the trophy list and i have enjoyed every single moment of this game. I have been at the 75% trophy spot for about 11hrs of gameplay so far because i am too busy having fun to worry about the trophies for now. It isnt the best FPS but just like the reason to buy Halo, its really fun.

    Good to know. I actually enjoy this game, unlike most. Sure it’s not within pissing distance of other shooters out there, but it’s still fun to play nonetheless. I hope EA does what they did for Bad Company 2 to this game: make an average or good game into a tremendous one.

    Y’know, for all the noise EA made about Tier 1, i’m quite surprised at how unmemorable their role in the game actually is. The rather boring last mission dosnt even include them.

    huh? they are in the last mission as far as i recall it…don´t wanna spoil anything but isn´t it a mixed rangers / tier 1 mission? enjoyed the game as well. good game but with more potential that has been wasted. unfortunately. maybe next time it will hit really hard.

    Nope, mixed Rangers and Seals.

    So this is just as crappy like killzone 2, but with the sales to back it up. Nice going fans of braindead shooters.

    ^^^something tells me this guy is either
    1) A person that went through a rough Child hood
    2) a Spoiled person that has been spoiled since child hood or
    3) Still a child being spoiled or having it rough.
    Thats the only way i can explain the shit that he posts here

    single player was awesome! multiplayer rush and tdm modes r also pretty good. domination is fine. though definitely not as good as the bfbc2 mp. they didn’t care much for it. it’s clear that they(DICE)’re investing most of their resources in the bf3 development.

    Oh cool, so I’m getting “free” stuff that I actually paid for already. Too bad the MP will be dead by then anyway. This game is a joke: The SP was above average, but still nothing special and the MP seems to be something Dice had to make up during half a year. I’m not a COD fanboy, but despite that pile of shit called Modern Warfare 2, MoH clearly shows how good Call of Duty actually is. This is the first time in ages that I’m really upset about a day 1 purchase. Bad Company 2: Vietnam better be good.

    my wife threw my online pass away before i had a chance to redeem it….is there anyway to get a new code besides paying $10 for the shit?

    @12, look at his name, he’s a troll, trolls have the brain capacity of a 12 year old & under, proof is that they’re trolling because they’re too socially retarded to understand people have different opinions, he’s a real PS3 hater, i could bet 90% of his posts have involved something negative about Sony, he even brought up Killzone 2 when it wasn’t relevant. He’s just trying to justify his 360 purchase by bnashing on others becasue he cannot afford a PS3, meaning he’ll miss out on Gran Turismo 5, inFamous 2, Killzone 3, Resistance 3 among the countless other great PS3 exclusives to come

    the fact DICE had their fingers in the online portion of this game = no sale. Bad Company 2 is full of some of the daftest bugs ive seen for ages.

    My favourite being the bullet proof leaf!

    MW2 has bullet proof leaves as well :)
    All 3 games (BFBC2, MW2, and MOH) are inconsistant with the environments strengths, wekanesses, and density.

    So I have heard. I didnt touch MW2 because it was a shoddy port but I am at a loss, how the old masters of FPS gaming – DICE, have created a monster in BC 2.

    It has its good moments but the bugs are SO annoying and its stuff that should have been picked up early on. FPS gaming has never looked so bleak!
