Expect Medal of Honor to sound good

This fall’s Medal of Honor reboot is set to offer more of the stellar sounds heard in Battlefield: Bad Company 2; the audio for the two shooters was recorded simultaneously during what’s believed to be ‘the biggest gun recording ever attempted’, Develop writes.

The recording was a joint venture with DICE and EA LA, developers of Medal of Honor‘s multi- and single-player components, respectively, the results of which, praised by critics and players alike, can already be heard in the DICE-developed Bad Company 2 which released earlier this year.

DICE audio director Stefan Strandberg explains some of what went on: “For two days we had movie guys Jean Paul Fasal and Brian Watkins there with an 80 microphone set-up capturing every weapon sound you can imagine to both computer and analogue tape recorders.”

“We even had people sync-recording in the mountains five-kilometers away”; that’s being quite thorough then, we reckon.
