Electronic Arts Australia have designed an exclusive Medal of Honor Warfighter cover art for Australia and New Zealand. Featuring elite SASR Operator on the box cover, the latest title in the Medal of Honor series with its one-of-a-kind design won’t be available anywhere else in the world.
Designed in collaboration with a former Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR), the retail box features all the real gear and weaponry that these Operators use in battle today. 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 scheduled to launch in Australia on October 25th, 2012 and New Zealand on October 26th, 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
