ALL-NEW ‘MEDAL OF HONOR’

EA Reinvents Franchise with New Development Teams, New Soldier, New Setting

 

Sydney, Australia – December 3, 2009 – Medal of Honor™ returns to the front lines, this time in today’s war. For the first time in the franchise’s 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the WWII theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan. Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed that in 2010, Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle. The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the U.S. Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create the most authentic modern war experience. Inspired by real events, Medal of Honor reveals the mission of today’s most elite American soldier – his will, his mindset and his uncompromising professionalism.

 

Medal of Honor is being built with a best-in-class single-player campaign. The Medal of Honor development team at EALA has been hand-selected by the studio leadership of General Manager Sean Decker, Executive Producer Greg Goodrich and Senior Creative Director Rich Farrelly. To compliment the single-player experience, EALA has enlisted the multiplayer expertise at EA DICE. This team will develop the multiplayer experience of Medal of Honor. These two studios are coming together to deliver a world-class Medal of Honor that is poised to re-set and re-boot the franchise for a new generation.

 

“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.”

 

“EA has always been an advocate for telling the soldiers’ story. The new Medal of Honor follows that tradition. We felt it was important to tell the story of today’s war and today’s elite soldiers via today’s most relevant medium – videogames,” said Sean Decker, VP and General Manager of EALA. “We are so proud to bring together two powerhouse development teams to make this game a reality; EA Los Angeles and EA DICE. Medal of Honor promises to be an unforgettable entry in the modern shooter genre.”

First lets hope they learn from the MW2 and MoH Airborne cockups and include LAN play and dedicated servers.

As for the setting I bet this will cause some screams of horror from the hand wringing politically correct brigade.

No actual release date yet but I would assume towards the end of 2010 would be most likely, assuming no delays.

 

I quite enjoyed the previous iterations of this game in single player, yes even Airborne so I have at least one game to look forward too next year.

Theres a special spot in my heart for the first medal of honor on PSone. Hopefully this one can live up to it, unlike every other succeeding modal of honor.

Gazing into my crystal ball:

 

MoH: Afgahn assault was banned by the OFLC, because jars of jam exploding looked too much like headshots.

This is what I am afraid of, the OFLC bans it as being to current, whereas the same violence in WWII would get an MA15+.

Still perhaps EA will keep the gore level low enough not to offend the bleeding hearts.

well, they can hardly root it more than mw2, so here's hoping they do it justice on pc.

however, in all probability we are gonna get another console pos. hey, its EA, optimism comes hard.
