Electronic Arts has officially announced the EA Los Angeles developed Medal of Honor Airborne, the newest installment from the company's long-running Medal of Honor, and to be released in Winter 2006 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Xbox, and the Windows PC. An early excerpt from the game was shown at EA LA executive Neil Young's Tokyo Game Show 2005 lecture, but the new details from EA reveal that each mission begins behind enemy lines with a fully interactive airdrop, and the player able to control his own mission start point. In addition, serving as a military spokesperson for Medal of Honor Airborne, Capt. Dale Dye, who has worked as the Military Technical Advisor for the last 7 Medal of Honor games, will help to create a truly authentic experience, according to the firm. This announcement follows a mixed critical reception for the recent iterations of the MoH series, and the emergence of Activision's Call Of Duty 2 as arguably the leading WWII first-person shooter. "Medal of Honor Airborne is a step in a new direction for the franchise. While integrating our state-of-the-art, next-gen technology into every aspect of the game, we are introducing innovations that will redefine the series and impact the genre as a whole," explained Patrick Gilmore, VP and Executive Producer at EALA. "By fully controlling the airdrop from your very first step through landing, Medal of Honor Airborne adds a new dimension of player choice by letting you decide where every mission begins and how it plays out."
