The Medal of Honor (MoH) war universe is rich with history. The first game was developed by DreamWorks Interactive (now known as Danger Close), published by Electronic Arts and written by Steven Spielberg. It was published in 1999 for the PlayStation game console. Medal of Honor spawned a series of follow-up games including multiple expansions spanning various console platforms. The first twelve instalments take place during World War II, while the recent Medal of Honor: Operation Anaconda and the soon to be released Medal Of Honor: Warfighter focus on modern warfare. With a total of 14 titles under its bandolier, the MoH franchise has become a veteran in delivering war games that are respectful and as authentic to real life soldiers as can be portrayed within the confines of a game.

With the MoH series, Electronic Arts invests not only in entertainment, but also in raising awareness and generating charitable contributions for fallen warriors from the Special Operations Community. On June 13, the company announced ‘Project HONOR’, a program dedicated to honoring the sacrifices these soldiers and their families have made for their country. Through a unique partnership program with EA for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, elite weapon and gear manufacturers who equip the Special Operations Community will donate to the Navy SEAL Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. These esteemed weapon and gear manufacturers will also have their products featured in the game to help deliver the most authentic videogame warfare experience this holiday season.

With Medal of Honor: Warfighter, EA enlisted the help of Tier 1 Operators from the U.S, the Polish GROM, the Australian SASR, and the German KSK, thereby placing gamers right into the boots of real life soldiers. This game is set to deliver this year’s most authentic military shooter experience inspired by real warriors, real operations and real places. You can pre-order the limited edition that includes access to the Battlefield 4 beta from Origin, or visit the homepage here.  

Now, let’s take a look at the trailer for the single player version of Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The game is inspired by real events, the story line set against the backdrop of immense personal loss and the action an adrenaline rush. The graphics are off the charts, the sound delivers an explosive experience and the physics are breathtaking. See for yourself.
