Friday, 18th May 2012 09:04 GMT By Johnny Cullen

EA will air a brand new ad for Medal of Honor: Warfighter during the Champions League final tomorrow evening. The ad will air at 8:30pm on Sky Sports 1. The Warfighter ad will go up against a new Black Ops II trailer that’ll air at an unspecified point during the final.

The Danger Close shooter launches on October 27, while Treyarch’s effort comes out on November 13.

    ^ Bit unfair that. I mean shooters borrowing ideas is hardly new is it? Besides a nice gritty contemporary shooter to fall back on, when you get bored of shooting Blop2s robots, can hardly be a bad thing right?

    Knowing how unaware those viewers are, they’ll probably think Warfighter is the next COD while Black Ops 2 is the next sci-fi shooter from EA.

    @4 Or…they wont give a flying fuck about either of them.

    I think that’s exactly what EA is hoping for.


    I was talking about the ad timing. I don’t think it’s a coincidence, by any means. EA just can’t seem to stop themselves leeching off of CoD instead of focusing on selling their own games on their own merits.

    @6, oh… Then yeah your totally right :-)

    Still a bit of bitching between Acti & EA is always fun. It’s like watching the two biggest slappers at the disco, screaming at each other about who’s the biggest slag, whilst claiming their as pure as the driven snow :-P

    I don’t know. Most people are really loving their military shooters these days. Me and you might not care about these same-ish / annual games but sadly, the mass market does.

    True. It really is a form of “leeching” that would actually really benefit EA.
