EA Announces Medal Of Honor Special Edition On PS3

In 2002, EA introduced the world to Medal of Honor Frontline, a ground-breaking game and massive hit. The game starred a courageous young soldier, Lt. Jimmy Patterson, who fought arm-in-arm with his brothers on the German frontline during WWII. Nearly ten years later, the franchise continues the tradition of telling the soldier’s story; this year, with Medal of Honor set in Afghanistan.

Electronic Arts has now announced a special edition of Medal of Honor exclusive for the PlayStation 3 that will include the classic, Medal of Honor Frontline. Available on PlayStation 3 for the very first time, Frontline has been completely remastered in HD with improved graphics, and all of the heart-wrenching battles of the original game.

For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the WWII theatre and enters the modern day setting of war-torn Afghanistan told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters. Medal of Honor introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior and relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military that operates under the National Command Authority, taking on missions no one else can handle.

Medal of Honor is inviting players worldwide to participate in a massive multiplayer beta test starting on June 21st. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 VIPs who have preordered Medal of Honor will be able to enter the multiplayer beta even earlier; starting June 17th.

The special edition of Medal of Honor for PlayStation 3 ships on October 15th 2010 in the UK.
