Electronic Arts announced that the next chapter in its highly successful Medal of Honor series is slated to arrive on shelves in the spring of 2005. Developed by EA Los Angeles (EALA), Medal of Honor: Dogs of War will be released under the EA GAMES brand for Sony PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox.
The acclaimed Medal of Honor franchise has been credited with pioneering the first person shooter WWII genre with its debut in 1999. Dogs of War promises to advance the series by introducing gamers to a new way of playing, while continuing to deliver a unflinching picture of warfare and its gut-wrenching brutality.
The game transports players to 1942 as the Nazi war machine rages across a devastated European landscape. With the British on the brink, Lt. William Holt of the OSS is sent on a secret mission by order of the President of the United States. On his own, or with his squad, Holt is pivotal in helping to turn the tide in four of the most crucial battles leading to victory in Europe.
As with the original Medal of Honor, producers sought counsel from numerous expert sources to make certain the game is historically accurate and as realistic as possible. The EALA development team continues to work closely with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to ensure that Medal of Honor: Dogs of War reflects the ideals and integrity of the prestigious Medal of Honor.
