New Modern & Authentic Medal of Honor Game

Medal of Honor reboot

EA has promised to unveil their Medal of Honor reboot at the Spike TV 2009 Video Game Awards on December 12, giving us our first look into what they claim will be the most realistic modern war experience to date. Given that Modern Warfare 2 – Medal of Honor’s main competition – is hardly a realistic war sim, it will be interesting to see if the new MoH will be simply a Modern Warfare ripoff, or if they plan on actually going with a more simulator style to the game.

Given that they keep pushing the fact that they are working with actual ‘Tier 1 Operators’ from the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM), it seems they might be going for realism. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with to re-gain a foothold in the FPS genre after not having released any installments to the series since 2007. Medal of Honor hit it big with gamers everywhere before the first Call of Duty even existed but in recent years, they’ve fallen flat while Activision’s development teams have been pumping out new CoD games annually.


Unfortunately, until they unveil it at the VGAs we have little to go on at the moment. What we do know is that you play as a member of SOCOM’s Tier 1 Operators, the most elite of America’s soldiers in Afghanistan. Presumably you would be fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban, though whether they opt for a fictional enemy is something we’ll have to wait to hear about. We also have the cover art, which seems to show the operator that the player will be taking the role of:

One way they can compete is by correcting and implementing features that Call of Duty fans didn’t get in MW2: co-op gameplay on the campaign, a 4-player Horde Mode/Spec  Ops/Nazi Zombies-type mode, dedicated servers for PC multiplayer users, etc. Since the Battlefield’s DICE team is handling them multiplayer, we can expect the dedicated servers.

Are you excited for the new Medal of Honor and the franchise’s return? Can it compete against the Call of Duty franchise?

This new Medal of Honor is set to release sometime next year on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and we know Call of Duty: World at War 2 will be out next Fall as well.

  1. Hah, looks an awful lot like the Modern Warfare case.

    I enjoyed the first Medal of Honor, but the series quickly fell apart for me (eventually being replaced with Call of Duty).

    I’m interested to see what they’re willing to bring to the table.

  2. loved the moh series until cod came out. modern warfare is going to be hard to beat. as far as realism is concerned, i don’t think anyone really cares whether the story is fictional or based on reality, it’s the execution of the story that most care about. the success of modern warfare 1 and 2 proves that. can’t wait to see what EA comes up with.

  3. well i think they mean more realistic gameplay and not just story. but it will be cool to see if they have anything extra up their sleeve that might cause a threat to modern warfare:)
