EA announced today that they will be making a new Medal of Honor title for 360, Ps3 and PC. Rather than following the traditional route, with World War 2 style settings, this release will be taking a leaf out of Call of Duty’s book, setting the game in a more contemporary conflict.
The game, simply titled “Medal of Honor” will be set in Afghanistan. It’s focus will be on a “tier 1 operator, a relatively unknown entity, directly under the control of the National Control Authority, who take on the missions no one else can handle.”
EA stated in their press release that they have been working closely with tier 1 operatives in the US to develop a very real experience, with the games single player campaign being based on true events.
“When we first set out to reinvent Medal of Honor, we wanted to stay true to its roots of authenticity and respect for the soldier but bring it into today’s war. The Tier 1 Operator is the most disciplined, deliberate and prepared warrior on the battlefield. He is a living, breathing, precision instrument of war.” said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer, Medal of Honor. “We are honored to have the rare opportunity to work closely with these men to create a game that shares their experience.”
Medal of Honor will see a fall 2010 release. The first look at Medal of Honor will debut on Spike TV’s 2009 Video Game Awards on Saturday, December 12 at 8pm PST.
