Modern media moves quickly. So quickly, sometimes, that we can barely get through one headline before we’re on to the next. But with the new Medal of Honor Warfighter, you get a chance not only to revisit some of the most powerful headlines in recent history, but to live out the stories behind them.
Announced today, Medal of Honor Warfighter is a continuation of the popular series that began in 1999. However, while previous titles focused on very specific hot spots (World War II and Afghanistan), Warfighter takes you the frontlines of a much more global war: the war on terrorism.
Fight The War Behind The Headlines
As a collaboration between EA and real Tier 1 Operatives, Medal of Honor Warfighter embodies an authenticity that’s rare in the shooter genre. Missions can be traced to real world headlines, load-outs mimic those carried by actual Operators, and even the movements of the characters – from their idle animations to the way they heft their weapons – are the result of extensive study and consultation.
Even the story pulls from real Tier 1 experience. Penned by two deployed Tier 1 Operators, the main campaign follows the story of “Preacher,” a warrior who returns from combat deployment only to find his family torn apart by the strain of his work. But when a deadly explosive called PETN penetrates borders close to home, Preacher must head to the front line again and do what he does best – solve the problem.
Represent Your Nation’s Tier 1 Operators
Medal of Honor Warfighter also offers a rich multi-player experience. Step into the boots of one of 12 different Tier 1 units from a variety of nations, including the Australian SASR, the British SAS, the German KSK, the Polish GROM, and the Swedish SOG. For the first time in the series, you’ll also be able to participate in multi-national “blue-vs-blue” team play, where you’ll go head-to-head with some of the world’s best warriors.
