[UPDATE]Medal of Honor sets franchise preorder record; new TV advert

Submitted by on Friday, 1 October 201024 Comments

medal honor [UPDATE]Medal of Honor sets franchise preorder record; new TV advertEA has been promoting Medal of Honor like crazy over the past few months.  Their line of Medal of Honor Experience videos have been great and all the press they’ve gotten over the Taliban controversy hasn’t hurt, either.  EA announced recently that all that publicity is paying off in the form of preorders.

While we don’t know the exact number of until sold prior to launch, we do know that it’s the highest the Medal of honor franchise has ever seen.  With almost 2 weeks until launch, the figures are likely to climb even higher.  We think it’s pretty impressive, especially when you consider that the last couple of Medal of Honor titles were not received all that well.

Not content with with the smashing retail success they’re already having, EA is readying a television campaign as well.  At the top of this post you’ll find the first advert they’re releasing.

Medal of Honor launches on October 12 in the US and the 15th in Europe.  Any of you readers out there planning on padding their numbers?  If so, do it via one of the links below and you’ll be helping our charity in the process.

We've just gotten word that EA has pulled the Taliban as playable characters from the game. This move comes after months of standing strong and defending their position on this issue.
