We were intrigued by the Medal of Honor: Warfighter teaser video last month; now it's time for the full thing. Think of it as an extended offering of that intense atmosphere and Battlefield 3 influence we mentioned before, and note especially the excellent animation:
Executive producer Greg Goodrich notes the Tier 1 unit featured in the game is a fictionalized one named "Task Force Blackbird" based on what information they could gather about such units (not nearly as much as they might like, as you'd imagine). Elaborating:
"As one of our consultants describes it, operational units like Task Force Blackbird are a "CT symphony" - Tier 1 personnel from the military operating jointly alongside spies, analysts and techs from the Intelligence Community - where disparate talents and capabilities are brought together to accomplishmore together than they ever could separately.
Task Force Blackbird in our story is a low visibility, clandestine, special operations team made up of veteran Tier 1 Operators and intelligence personnel with extensive specialised training in fieldcraft to carry out operations in non-permissive environments."
Medal of Honor: Warfighter launches October 23.
