USAToday is reporting new information on EA's upcoming modern shooter reboot, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, with a revealed release date of October and a handful of back story.

Last week we saw a new logo appear around the Internet, showcasing a new title in the recent modern warfare series, Medal of Honor. Along with the logo came news that Danger Close would be using the Frostbite 2.0 engine, as well as developing the multiplayer themselves, unlike the previous title where DICE managed multiplayer.

The article goes into depth about the back story to this new title, and how there will be a more concentrated focus on "two Navy SEALS and members of AFO Team Neptune -- Preacher and Mother -- who appeared in the 2010 game that was set in modern-day Afghanistan."
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."

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."
With more then two dozen Tier One operators helping Danger Close, could this title be a contender for realistic warfare?

Danger Close wouldn't comment on any multiplayer specifics, but did say they were "doing a lot of really cool things." Leave us a comment on whether you enjoyed the previous Medal of Honor title's Singleplayer and Multiplayer.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be available October 23rd this year, on Playstation 3, PC and Xbox 360. Stay tuned for more!

I'm actually looking forward to this one. The 2010 reboot caught me by surprise and I found it to be quite good. I understand why it didn't set any news sites on fire, but it was definitely a slight departure from the current 'standard' military shooters. I think what impressed me most was the slow pacing, and the fact that it was more grounded. As opposed to the hilariously bad, over-the-top, 'Michael Bay' styled Call of Doody's. I also quite enjoyed the helicopter sequence.

The multiplayer was good, and felt very much like the original MOH's from back in the day. But since there was zero post release support and no new content, it was hard to invest too much time into it.

Hopefully now that Danger Close have settled into the EA 'basement', they can add some new interesting concepts to this follow-up.
