Medal of Honor Campaign Details

Gametrailers TV have a lengthy episode dedicated to the campaign in the upcoming Medal of Honor. You can see it for yourself in the external link at the bottom of this article.

The campaign has three distinct 'parts' which will be told from two different perspectives. The overall goal of the people and squads involved is the hunt for Al Qaeda operatives Perhaps bearing the recent DICE publicity, executive producer Greg Goodrich remarked that the game is conducted with the utmost respect for those currently serving:

We're still telling the soliders' story, doing it right and honouring a community of individuals as we've always done. It's inspired by real events, but it's a fictional story in an actual conflict.
The first of the two perspectives is that of an Army AFO squad. When we first see the AFO unit arrive, they're under heavy fire as insertion is carried out via airborne transport. After this we also see all terrain ATV style vehicles which will be player controlled (think Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the snowmobiles).

Speaking of Call of Duty when asked to draw an inevitable comparison between the campaign structure featured within and Medal of Honor's own story telling, Goodrich remarked that they were going for a more 'authentic' tone which was altogether more 'plausible', but would not mean the game was necessarily 'realistic'.

There's a difference between authenticity and realism. You can have authentic weapons and authentic sounds and locations and tactics... but sometimes realism goes out the door when you have three or four weapons droppped on your back and hundreds of rounds of ammuinition. We try to remain authentic
