While Warfighter is not based on an identifiable actual battle, he says, "It's focused on the threat of PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate), a nasty, nasty explosive that we have all been faced with over the last few years whether you realize it or not."With more then two dozen Tier One operators helping Danger Close, could this title be a contender for realistic warfare?
PETN was used by the 2001 shoe bomber Richard Reid and the 2009 "Underwear Bomber" and was found in printer toner cartridges bound for the U.S. in flights from Yemen in 2010. "It's a very real world threat that the guys are faced with keeping off our shores and out of our shopping malls and train stops," Goodrich says. "Every mission in the game has a dotted line to something that has been either inspired by actual events or has happened or is loosely based on something that has happened."
The latest issue of PSM3 is touting details of "a mystery shooter sequel" in its next issue, which launches on 6 March. It will feature "an exclusive look at one of 2012's hottest shooters," reads the page.Of course this is just a rumour, but if things are pointing to a new Medal of Honor, could we finally see a Call of Duty contender? The magazine shows a image of two bullets, suggesting some form of a sequel, and Medal of Honor is the only recently rebooted FPS to fit the bill.
"In the past few months, we have received feedback from all over the world regarding the multiplayer portion of Medal of Honor. We've received notes from gamers, active military, and friends and family of servicemen and women currently deployed overseas. The majority of this feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. For this, the Medal of Honor team is deeply appreciative. However, we have also received feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game. This is a very important voice to the Medal of Honor team. This is a voice that has earned the right to be listened to. It is a voice that we care deeply about. Because of this, and because the heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers, we have decided to rename the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer from Taliban to Opposing Force.Medal of Honor is due on October 14 in Australia for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
While this change should not directly affect gamers, as it does not fundamentally alter the gameplay, we are making this change for the men and women serving in the military and for the families of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice - this franchise will never willfully disrespect, intentionally or otherwise, your memory and service. To all who serve - we appreciate you, we thank you, and we do not take you for granted. And to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines currently serving overseas, stay safe and come home soon."
