Electronic Arts has revealed that its upcoming Medal of Honor reboot has achieved more pre-orders than any other title in the series’ history, with the game cementing itself as one of the company’s top “pre-selling” action games of all-time.
The shooter marks the franchise’s much anticipated transition from WWII-era combat to a more contemporary setting, with the action taking place in war-torn Afghanistan.
It’s also attracted a fair bit of controversy along the way; primarily due to the fact players can assume the role of the Taliban during multiplayer events. EA’s also let slip that the game would have to shift in the region of three million copies in order to get a sequel out the door.
Medal of Honor is pencilled in for release on October 15.
