Electronic Arts today announced that Medal of Honor has shipped to retail across North America, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 - the game will launch in Europe on October 15. For the first time in the franchise's 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the WWII theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan. This all-new first-person shooter game will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle. The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create the most authentic modern war experience. Inspired by real events, Medal of Honor reveals the mission of today's most elite soldier - his will, his mindset and his uncompromising professionalism. A new trailer is now available.
Update: Rude Gameware has announced that the PC version of Medal of Honor is protected by GameGuard which provides real-time monitoring and automatic updating from virus and malware databases to protect systems from online threats such as rootkits or spyware.
