EA will air the latest trailer for upcoming shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter at tonight’s MCV Awards.
The new Medal of Honor is due out on October 23rd and will continue the success laid down by the 2010 title of the same name.
Having made a name for itself with its stunning recreations of key scenes and dramas from WWII, Danger Close’s reinvention saw the battlefield switched to modern day Afghanistan.
“Inspired by actual events across the globe and written by real Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas, follow the global Warfighters as they are asked to take on a real terror threat, PETN,” EA said.
“Powered by the Frostbite 2 Engine.??For more information about the Global Operators and the Most Authentic Shooter to date, visit the official site.”
