No surprise, Electronic Arts has a new Medal of Honor in the works. Today, the title was officially announced, and it’s being branded as a complete reboot of the series.
As rumored, Medal of Honor brings the war to modern times, inspired by “real events,” and putting players in a war-torn Afghanistan. The game has players in the role of a Tier 1 Operatator, a real-life but under-the-radar group that works under the National Command Authority that “takes on missions no one else can handle.”
EA is saying Medal of Honor is “being built with a best-in-class single-player campaign,” with EALA on board to bring it to life. Multiplayer is also being built into the game, under the watchful eye of EA DICE.
The game is slated for a 2010 release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. We only have box art, but the game will be revealed (along with everything else coming out in 2010) at the Spike Video Game Awards on December 12.
