Really, EA, do you have to make the first gameplay footage for the next Medal of Honor game so damn dark, huh? We know the Frostbite 2 engine that the game's being built on can do all sorts of wonderful, amazing-looking things but we need to be able to see said things.

From what we can make out, you get clips of a hostage rescue, an interior gunfight and a boat chase sequence, all in first-person and apparently captured in-engine. And there's dubstep. Of course.

What you can make out as clear as day are the pre-order prompts, which apparently let you play as a sniper and get some sort of headstart, both of which will be tempting for the FPS hardcore that EA's courting with Warfighter. The game's not out until October 23, so there will surely be more pre-order enticements on the way.
