EA have revealed that boxed copies of Medal of Honor: Warfighter sold locally in Australia will have regionally-unique boxart, featuring a kitted out SASR soldier, in place of the US Special Forces operative that adorns the international artwork.

It's hardly exciting news, but it is a nice nod and a reaffirmation of developer Danger Close's commitment to providing a more authentic combat experience, as Australian soldiers generally go completely unrepresented in most military shooters.
Gamers will be able to fly the local flag in battle playing as a member of the Australian SASR in multiplayer and going head-to-head against the best-of-the-best in global competition including the US Navy SEAL, German KSK, Canadian JTF2 and Polish GROM.

In Medal of Honor Warfighter, gamers can select up to 72 Operators in multiplayer. Each of the 12 Tier 1 units represented in the game has six different classes to choose from. For example, the Australian SASR Point Man like all Point Men are known for surprise and speed, mandatory for the inherent danger of placing themselves in the first and most exposed position. They must proceed at risk with extreme operational awareness, which is why they carry a magazine of heavy hitters that will do 20% more damage than normal when loaded in the game. These Point Men also have the ability to call in an airburst mortar.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is due on October 25th in Australia for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Hahahaha No SAS Trooper would wear an ordinary Australia insignia like what they have depicted in the field.

Yeah, that flag looks pretty stupid planted right in the middle. Dont country flags normally go on the shoulder on most uniforms?

Maybe it's there because you can't see the shoulder area?

They don't wear any insignia in combat. They're under velcro latches to prevent identification of rank by spotters and snipers...

Who cares how it looks, it's awesome our elite troops are being recognised in a video game!

I have a really good feeling about this game.

You'd be surprised at the patches they wear...

This just in, Medal of Honor not aiming for realism. Most gamers would not notice the difference in cams let alone know what country uses it. I think it's a good move on their part to put that there, specialized box art FTW.

Let me get the Australian box art will cost us Australian's $30 more :) It's just a reason to charge us more. Come on EA you can tell me the truth.

US = $60
Aust = $90

There is no reason for that much of a price difference. If EA wants to show there support for our troops they should give us a fair price. oppps I did it now I used to 3 words that should never be said in the same sentence. :D

On the hat he isn't wearing.

There's both the most decorated Aussie combat specialist, AND an Aussie flag on his shoulder whilst in AO.
(and no Toll, no hat either)

Edit: for scale, that's an M14 EBR in his hands... that weapon system is actually fairly f***** HUGE, yet he makes it look like a toy.
