So, the upcoming Medal of Honor is still trying to say it's authentic while showing Call of Duty-esque blockbuster moments. Some things will never change, but some things do, like a lot of the trimmings and context of this reboot's sequel.


In a nice nod to the fact video games are enjoyed by people living outside the United States, this time the action will take place all over the planet (fighting pirates in Somalia, shooting terrorists in Malaysia) and will feature allies and soldiers from all over the planet to boot.


Sadly, they're restricted to multilayer (where this time it's "blue vs blue" and not "America vs Taliban"), but there's Australian, German, Polish and British special forces mentioned, with a further seven flashing past you real fast in the trailer from yesterday.

EA also says that sections of the game have been written by actual soldiers, and "reveals the heartbreaking side of war, told through the eyes of military families". Which could only go one of two very extreme ways depending on how well they pull it off.
