EA today announced that Medal of Honor is now available at retail stores in North America.
Co-developed by EA?s Danger Close Studio in Los Angeles and DICE in Stockholm, Medal of Honor heralds the return of EA?s storied first person shooter franchise with award-winning multiplayer combat and authentic single-player incursions. Set in today?s real-world war zone and inspired by actual missions in Afghanistan, Medal of Honor was developed with access to the U.S. Army as well as active and retired Tier 1 Operators.
For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the WWII theatre and enters the modern setting of war-torn Afghanistan. The game is told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters within the real-life Tier 1 Operators, a relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military. Tier 1 Operators function under the National Command Authority to take on missions so dangerous, so specialized; they require an elite level of soldier. The authenticity and realism in the Medal of Honor single player campaign is supported by a multiplayer mode awarded "Best Multiplayer of E3 2010" by GameSpy, with its dedicated servers and full feature set developed by DICE, delivering one of the most seamless online experiences of the year.
Medal of Honor is available now in North America and will be available in Europe on October 15, 2010 for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC.
