165w ago - Yesterday we reported on the US release of Medal of Honor for PS3, and today EA Community Manager Matthew Pruitt has shared a video trailer while confirming that it hits European shores on October 15, 2010.
To quote: It is finally time to take that step; a step so critical that it will elevate you to a new level of gamer. It's time to step up to Tier 1!
Medal of Honor for the PlayStation 3 is now on retail store shelves in the US and will be making its debut in Europe on the 15th of October.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Medal of Honor, it's a modern reboot of the venerable franchise that has existed for ten years. Operating directly under the National Command Authority, a relatively unknown entity of handpicked warriors are called on when the mission must not fail. They are the Tier 1 Operators.
Over two million Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines wear the uniform. Of those, approximately 50 thousand fall under the direct control of the Special Operations Command. The Tier 1 Operator functions on a plane of existence above and beyond even the most highly trained Special Operations Forces. Their exact numbers, while classified, hover in the low...
196w ago - Update: Alongside a new trailer, EA has now slated Metal of Honor Reboot for an October 12, 2010 release in North America and October 15, 2010 in Europe.
Below is a Medal of Honor 2010 trailer video (debuted on GTTV) which defines the Tier One Operative in EA's upcoming reboot of the Medal of Honor series for PS3, XBox 360 and the PC.
It really goes out of its way to explain exactly the kind of gentlemen you'll be piloting this summer.
These guys are Tier One Operators - "experts in the application of violence."
That seems pretty self-explanatory... but we've never been able to turn down a video featuring expertly applied violence.
There will be one seamless single player campaign. The player will play as multiple characters that each partake in diverse and unique experiences from both the "Tier 1" and "Big Military" perspectives.
The storyline will follow several "Tier One Operator" soldiers working under the National Command Authority in Afghanistan.
Players will also step into the shoes of the standard issue military and will be on a larger scale than the "Tier 1 Elite Ops" campaign, as players will only be a small part of the 'war machine'.
210w ago - Today EA has announced news that a new Medal of Honor, which will be set in Afghanistan, is coming on October 29, 2010 (according to Amazon) to Sony's PS3 entertainment system, Microsoft's XBox 360 console and the PC in 2010.
The box art is available HERE, and below is the official press release, as follows:
