Modern warfare first-person shooters have a new contender in Medal of Honor, EA's current day reboot of the former World War II shooter series. The game's second trailer puts less emphasis on explosive action than it does tugging at heartstrings.

Oh, there's an explosion or two near the end, so don't think that this new Medal of Honor teaser is a complete waste of time. If Electronic Arts and developers EA LA and DICE are going for a more emotionally engaging angle in addition to making shit blow up in Afghanistan, consider us interested.

EA revealed today it will release Medal of Honor on October 12th in North America and October 15th in Europe.
