Medal of Honor featuring Linkin Park

We bet the lot of you thought that after yesterday’s tease, EA and Medal of Honor would come out swinging with a monstrosity of an announcement. To a certain degree, and depending on who you are, it is.

Grammy award-winning Linkin Park and their new and upcoming single “The Catalyst” will headline Medal of Honor‘s in-game soundtrack. “The Catalyst,” which will invade media on August 2nd, will be the lead single to Linkin Park’s new album A Thousand Suns, releasing later this fall on September 14th.

Band DJ Joe Hahn and director of short film “The Seed” has directed an exclusive and “unique first-of-its-kind mix of live footage and intense modern military action” trailer which will be premiered on the Medal of Honor / Linkin Park website on August 1st.

While this may not have been the surprise thousands of Medal of Honor fans were hoping for, no doubt have another few thousands of Linkin Park fans rejoiced in the light of this announcement. Some of you will go back to playing the beta, the rest of us will replay the teaser above.
