EA to release free DLC for 'Medal of Honor' on November 2

Electronic Arts has announced that it would release a free multiplayer mode for the first-person shooter Medal of Honor on 2nd of November. Players who have activated the online pass code available with the new copies of the game will be able to enjoy the mode for free.

The new match option has been named Clean Sweep that asks players to depend on their own skills and expertise of their teammates to emerge as the winning team. The mode will be available in two brand new maps and two maps currently available in multiplayer mode viz. Kabul City Ruins and Diwagal Camp. The DLC will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Medal of Honor, which had to face criticisms from the United States government officials for being insensitive to their soldiers in Afghanistan, has sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide within just five days of its launch.

To begin with, the game used to allow gamers to play the role of Taliban soldiers and kill the US soldiers, but later, developers of the game were compelled to change the name of the Taliban fighters in the multiplayer section to the 'Opposing Force'.

Despite the negative reviews in the beginning, the game managed to grab the top spot in the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 list, which was announced on Monday this week.
