Linkin Park and EA team-up for Medal of Honor

Linkin Park and Fort Minor frontman Mike Shinoda will score the soundtrack for the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Meanwhile a new Linkin Park song Castle of Glass – off the band’s No.1 album Living Things – will feature in-game footage of Warfighter.

It’s not the first time Linkin Park has teamed up with Medal of Honor, songs from the band’s last album was used in the promotional material for the game’s 2010 reboot.

Shinoda is the rapper from Linkin Park and is credited for writing most of the band’s songs, he also has a rap side-project Fort Minor.

He also wrote the score for the Linkin Park iPhone game – 8-bit Revolution – and last year wrote the movie score for The Raid.

Linkin Park’s involvement with the 2010 reboot of Medal of Honor was a hugely positive experience for all of us,” said Shinoda. The opportunity to take this creative collaboration several steps further was something that we knew we had to be a part of.”

Medal of Honor executive producer Greg Goodrich added: Linkin Park has always shown a great deal of respect and gratitude for our servicemen and women, many of whom are fans of their music.

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.”

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is listed as one of the 20 games to save Christmas in this week’s MCV. You can buy the magazine to discover the full list, here.
