Promising to go beyond the war in Afghanistan, depicted in 2010's Medal of Honor reboot, Medal of Honor: Warfighter will have you playing missions inspired by real-world events, including tasks like rescuing hostages in the Phillipines to eliminating pirates around the Somali coast.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is looking to be "gritty and authentic" giving players an "up close and personal look into the fight against today’s global terror threat," says the EA press release. It'll tell the personal story of Tier 1 Operator, 'Preacher', which is actually written by real Tier 1 Operators. Preacher returns home to find his family torn apart by his years of combat deployment, so he strives to save what's left of his marriage. However, he's called back into action when a deadly explosive threatens civilian borders.

The game's multiplayer meanwhile, will boast 12 different nation's Tier 1 Operators from the global battlefield, including the Australian SASR, British SAS, German KSK and Polish GROM among others, enabling nations to go head-to-head online. Both single-player and multiplayer will be powered by DICE's Frostbite 2 engine.

Finally, pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter will net you a free upgrade to the Limited Edition, which gives you a US Navy SEAL Tier 1 Sniper on launch day, saving you the almost 40 hours it takes to unlock the unit in-game. You can check out the first three screenshots and yesterday's announcement trailer again below. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is out on October 23rd, 2012.

That's pretty much all I have to say.

The "Limited Edition" is pretty standard fare now. If every game that is pre-ordered gets a limited edition, what's so limited about it?

No matter.
Pre-order in, roll on October

Yeah, the first MoH has been possibly the most enjoyable FPS experience I've had since I got my PS3 in 2010. I would be putting through my pre-order now if it wasn't the fact I've already ordered FIFA Street, GR: Future Soldier and Max Payne 3 Special Edition.

MoH: Warfighter is easily my first choice for end of year FPS.

I know someone will complain about what I'm gonna say, but, it's one thing to fight against nazis and past wars, but this move towards rooting games with current events, is really starting to bother me.
I don't want my games to get involved with the brainwashing of the public, where we only see one side of the story, especially since this is getting based on current events.
I want my games to entertain me, not try to tell me what's wrong or right.
It's a no buy for me.

I'm excited for the nation head to head match ups. I hope they mean it really will be ALL one nation vs another.
