Medal of Honor Heroes is being developed exclusively for the PSP, and marks the debut for the Medal of Honor series on the handheld system. The game will feature a totally unique storyline, with a new single-player campaign, plus six multiplayer modes spread over 15 maps. Impressively, the game will feature online play for up to 32 players.
Heroes will see players take on three campaigns, each staring a lead character from previous MoH games: Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson in an untold chapter of Operation Market Garden, Sergeant John Baker must sabotage German defences on the Italian coastline, and Lieutenant William Holt returns to the Ardennes Forest during the Battle of the Bulge to complete unfinished business for the OSS.
Also included is a 'Quickplay' skirmish mode, which throws players directly into the action in pre-set or customised scenarios designed to aid re-playability.
"For the first time ever, the epic WWII battles synonymous with Medal of Honor can be played anytime and anywhere in the world on the PSP," explained Mike Quigley, Group Vice President of Marketing at EA. "The PSP-specific feature set, especially the 32-player wireless supported multiplayer, skirmish game mode, and unlockable characters are really what is going to give this Medal of Honor game an entirely new and exciting flavor."
Medal of Honor Heroes is in development at EA Canada in conjunction with EA LA and is slated for release this winter.
