GDC 10: PS3 The Lead Platform For Medal Of Honor
We're very excited about the new Medal of Honor; everything we've heard thus far has proven that EA is headed in the right direction.
But we've got more good news. At the Game Developers Conference, EA decided to show off several new screens for their new entry in the long-running series, and these depicted the "scalpel" portion of the campaign. Previously, we saw daytime images of a mission based in Afghanistan; these new screens hint at stealth and strategy rather than the intense, all-out action suggested by the daytime pics. And furthermore, the game's producer has confirmed to Joystiq that EA is using the PlayStation 3 as the lead development platform. Perhaps surprisingly, they're using the Unreal Engine for this game; most of the time, such shooters begin their lives on the Xbox 360. But times are changing and more and more designers are starting to focus on the PS3's capabilities first, which is probably a good idea. By the way, the build they showed at GDC represented a product that is about "60% complete" so they've got a ways to go, but that's fine by us. All we really want is a complete and total rejuvenation of an ailing, once-great series.
We'll definitely keep you updated as more Medal of Honor details arise. Remember the start of Frontline where you're storming the beach on D-Day? Let's get back to that level of awesomeness.
