Medal of Honor returns to the front lines, this time in todays war. For the first time in the franchises 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the World War II theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan. Electronic Arts 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.
Medal of Honor is set to hit store shelves on October 12 in North America and October 15 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Speaking at their E3 press conference, Electronic Arts has confirmed a Medal of Honor multiplayer beta, set to begin on June 21. The beta will be available to play on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Further information regarding the sign-up process for the testing period has yet to be announced.
