Medal of Honor Limited Edition detailed

Electronic Arts' upper-tier package coming to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC with early access to shotguns, exclusive weapon; PS3 gamers get remastered copy of Medal of Honor Frontline.

Sony announced a special edition of Electronic Arts' upcoming modern day shooter, Medal of Honor at its E3 2010 press briefing in June. At the time, it was only noted that the package would be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and would include a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 hit Medal of Honor Frontline.

Today, EA announced a limited edition for all major systems--but one with less tangible bonus content. When the Medal of Honor Limited Edition arrives for the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 October 12, it'll come bundled with early access to two shotguns, the TOZ-194 and 870MC2, and an exclusive weapon, the MP7 submachine gun. (Frontline will remain exclusive to the PS3 version.) The limited edition will be the same price as the regular version of the game--$60.

Getting the LE won't cost you more.

The first installment in the series not to be set during World War II, Medal of Honor will follow a group of elite commandos called Tier 1 Operators during operations behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. It will be set during the early stages of the still-ongoing war, when the US-backed Northern Alliance was pushing toward victory over the now-resurgent Taliban and their Al-Qaeda allies.

In order to better blend in with the locals, Tier 1 Operators grew bushy beards and wore civilian clothing and will also do so in Medal of Honor. Such outfits were sported by US Special Forces during the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, as can be seen in a 2002 Life magazine photo feature, to better blend in with the heavily bearded local population. In 2002, soldiers were ordered to shave, according to CNN.

While EALA will craft Medal of Honor's single-player campaign, another internal studio, EA DICE, will be handling the game's multiplayer mode. The Swedish developer, formerly known as Digital Illusions CE, is renowned for the multiplayer aspect of its Battlefield series and recently won critical accolades for its PS3, 360, and PC shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Judging by the beta, this game will suck so much no amount of free stuff will help its sales

@Blasphemous1: Well geez sorry. So I massively overstated that, but you still recieve my point. Let's just leave it at the fact that games would be ALOT different if some time changing events never happened. I also understand why people are angry, I just overstated my point, that's all.

@BallisstiXXX - I understand you're point... But you shoulda just said "911 changed gmaes." 911 changed everything. To be upset that you can't play as a terrorist or kill kids on a video game with the blame sitting on 911 is ignorant and selfish. Nobody needs to get over it... Especially not the kid who the only time he's seen his father in the last 8 years is in the picture of him and his crew at the firehouse... Or the cop that's been batling lung cancer while trying to get his insurance to acknowledge he bacame sick in the aftermath at groundzero... Ya know ? If I was goin through that and you called me "butthurt".... Open your eyes and mind a lil or close your mouth.

so we get one extra weapon... cool, but I think I'll just wait for the price to go down as always.

Same price, extra weapons, and remastered edition of Frontline? Call of Duty: Black Ops, you are going to get so owned.

@Packgator Trust me, cross game chat sucks. After it was added to Xbox Live, hardly anybody talked in-game. everybody was in a party chat. I am actually relieved that the PS3 doesn't have it.

Ive had a ps3 for 3 years and I was getting ticked that the 360 was getting all the cool crap. Now it seems like everyone is in love with the ps3 and they hate the 360? WTH happend? I just hope Sony didnt do a stupid thing with EA where PS3 gets exclusive stuff if the PS3 doesn't get the cross game chat! I want that so bad!

It's sad, Frontline is probubly a better game than this. I was excited about this till I saw all the video, It's just a BFBC2 clone.

RIPANTHONY8008

i dont care about a remastered frontline i already have that game.my concern is that this game ends up exactly the same as battlefield bc2 just with a medal of honor title.i like battlefield bc2 i just dont want to end up with the same game again...

I think that F**ing Sucks! Im really looking forward to this game and Ive been playing Medal of Honor games From DAY 1, then watched in horror while the quality and values dropped as they went to the consoles (i.e. Gamecube and PS2). Hearing this franchise was coming back renewed was cause for jubilation, But why are the miserable hostile PS3 crowd (Im and ex-PC user and now an Xbox player by the way and I dont give a s**t about formats. I just feel SOME ps3 users have a chip on thier shoulder) getting the rewards for longservice when the PC players have been there looooong before. And why not revamp the decent games like Allied Assault! This just seems wierd.

well being pc gamers always get the crap end of the stick and poor ports and or short or buggy crap all the time- after reading this- ps3 gets extra content- i will not look to buy it at all- i had already come to that conclusion being its crap gfwl junk- this just takes any hope away of getting my cash- most of my friends feel the same way- the only way i will get this game is if it comes with hardware or other- or maybe 2 years from now it will be 10 bucks- other than that- they can stuff it. i normally do not buy eagames anyway- one of the most buggy and poor patch game makers on earth.. see ya.

They mean back in the early stages of the war when troops were actually aloud to take action.

The limited editon has two games for the same price and added weapons makes this a no brainer.

Hey well it's a good, it's the same price as the original retail.

A more accurate name would be MoH: Marketing Ambush Edition. I wonder how much content they will cut from the game, then sell to consumers as DLC?

might as well call this LE to Extended edition

The video looked way more polished than the beta. I can't wait for it! And Frontline for the PS3! Thanks, EA! LE looking great and also the same price as the standard! Not bad, EA. =) But I do like working for my awards.

Bonus MoH Frontline, I am so geting this. At 60$ its a great bargain considering that they have included Frontline.

It might be a little strange, but I am psyched for the Frontline remake, maybe even more so than the new MOH.

@burrito_tester it was a beta for a reason. It's not the finishing game or touches. Give the beta a 8 outta 10 play the game and then see if it's an 8 outta 10
