EA has announced that the next entry in the Medal of Honor series, Medal of Honor Warfighter, will launch on October 23. In development at Danger Close Games, Warfighter is a follow-up to 2010′s Medal of Honor reboot and sees the Tier 1 Operatives leaving Afghanistan and taking on assignments around the world. As Tier 1 Operator “Preacher,” players will have to play out missions based on real-life events, such as fighting pirates off the coast of Somalia and rescuing hostages in the Philippines. Warfighter was written by Operatives while deployed overseas, which EA is hoping will help to deliver “an aggressive, gritty and authentic experience that puts gamers in the boots of the world’s most precise and disciplined warriors.”
A pre-order bonus was also announced, with players pre-ordering the Limited Edition receiving day-one access to the U.S. Navy SEAL Tier 1 Sniper. The multiplayer-only unlock is said to normally take around 40 hours to attain. Multiplayer will also include multinational Tier one ‘blue-vs-blue’ team play, where special forces from 12 different nations, including the Australian SASR, British SAS, German KSK, and Polish GROM, battle it out.
