According to GameJeux, they claim that a new Medal of Honor is at work at EA and instead of going into WW2 again, we’ll be going into the present…or rather the near past…as in Afghanistan in 2002 at the start of the War on Terror.
More info below.
The game will be based on a real life operation that happened in Afghanistan in March 2002 where Coaltion forces garner the upper hand in the war:
The new MOH is based on events that have marked this operation. By way to Tokur Ghar, a Navy SEAL helicopter came under fire sporadic rocket launchers. During this incident, the owner of 1st Class Neil Roberts fell east of the Chinook landed 30 metres down in the snow. Unable to rescue the helicopter crashed 6 kilometers further. The huge contingent deployed in the Shahikot then has been more than an idea in mind: to assist Robert. But the stock has increased, other rapid Rangers, one of the best trained units of the army, has set up an attack against full of heroism. She was able to secure the mountain and allow the evacuation of all involved, dead or alive.
The new Medal of Honor you contera history of the heroes who helped save Operation Anaconda of the disaster. As it unfolds, players will play multiple responsibilities, engaging the enemy in the skin of a simple soldier in the group “mortar”, in command of a drone attack, among combatants on the front or the snipers, to name a few. The intensity of this game shooting the 1st person, the realism of the image and some 60 customizable weapons waiting for you, you will relive the terrible scenario of an operation which would leave you gasping for air.
We dont know the platforms the game will appear on but we assume it’ll be all 3 of the main consoles as well as the DS and PSP. The game should have a 2009 release to it.
