EA shows that their new modern war shooter may be a game, but war itself is hell. In this teaser trailer we get a glimpse of Medal of Honor’s latest military project that will be released on the PS3, 360 and PC on October 12, 2010.
The trailer is a tribute to Steven Spielberg who created the Medal of Honor franchise. If the trailer has a familiar feel to it that is because it was designed that way.
“The best way we knew how to do this, was to recreate the Omaha Beach landing with Jimmy Patterson [from Medal of Honor: Frontline,” Greg Goodrich executive producer said. “Except now, instead of arriving on the shores of occupied France in the hull of a Higgins boat, our Ranger would arrive in the Shahi-Kot Valley, in Afghanistan’s Paktia province, in the modern day equivalent, the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Basically, Normandy in the desert.”
The trailer shows in-game footage taken from the first Ranger mission of the game and through it has been edited slightly for the trailer it looks incredible. The game is meant to have a more mature, serious feel than just a standard military shooter. We’ve seen the effects of adding drama to war shooters and I can’t wait to see what MOH does.
No word yet on a beta besides it is coming “soon” when it does we will let you know how to get in.
