EA's modern day Medal Of Honor is entirely set in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2004 - and its developer believes the game's weapons and tactics set it apart from its rivals.
That's according to a spiffing new preview in GamesMaster magazine - on sale now.
The mag, which was allowed access to the title at an early stage of development, reveals that MoH's gunplay is 'slick and smooth', with players doing battle with Chechen rebels, amongst others.
Modern Warfare-esque Elite ops levels are complemented by huge-scale 'Sledgehammer' campaigns - which GM says bear more resemblance to EA's own Battlefield series.
Greg Goodrich - exec producer of the game - hinted the title's warfare 'set it apart' from its rivals.
"I can't go into details, but let's just say you'll be surprised by how some of the enemies respond to you, both in terms of tactics and the weapons they use," he added.
Medal Of Honor is being co-developed by studios EALA and DICE.
