REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--Aug. 7, 2003--Step into the boots of a U.S. Marine and drive the
Imperial Japanese Army from the Pacific in Medal of Honor Pacific Assault(TM) from Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS - News). Developed
by EA Los Angeles, creators of the award-winning Medal of Honor(TM) series, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault
immerses players in an authentic WWII experience, and will be available for the PC in the winter of 2004
under the EA GAMES(TM) brand.
Medal of Honor Pacific Assault gives players a sense of the courage it took to
fight the Imperial Japanese Army from the shock of Pearl Harbor to triumph on the shores of the Tarawa Atoll. Set in the Pacific
Theatre of Operations from 1941-1944, players will assume the role of Marine recruit Tom Conlin as he survives the attack
on Pearl Harbor, leads the assault on Guadalcanal, and finally charges up the beaches for the climatic battle at Tarawa. Armed
with their wits and a variety of authentic weapons, it's up to players to stop the Japanese war machine in its tracks.
of Honor Pacific Assault follows the tradition of previous Medal of Honor products with a brand new arsenal of weapons, new
enemies, and new storyline. In addition, Pacific Assault features new multiplayer modes in which up to 32 players can choose
soldiers from American, British, Japanese, and other armies. Medal of Honor Pacific Assault will also debut a new 3D technology
built specifically for Medal of Honor.
As with the original Medal of Honor game, the producers sought counsel from
numerous expert sources to ensure the game is as historically authentic as possible. EALA continues to work closely with the
Congressional Medal of Honor Society to ensure Medal of Honor Pacific Assault reflects the ideals and integrity of the prestigious
Medal of Honor. In addition, Capt. Dale Dye, who served as military technical advisor on the previous titles in the Medal
of Honor franchise, continues his efforts with the Medal of Honor Pacific Assault team. The EA Medal of Honor franchise website
The game opens with a sequence that recalls the bombing of Pearl Harbour and has already been compared to
the frenzied Normandy beach landing at the start of Allied Assault.
This time round though, you play as Marine Private
Tom Conlin through seven single-player missions covering 25 levels and over nine new multiplayer maps, which include new locations,
new weapons (including M1 carbines, M1 flamethrowers, Japanese Arisaka rifles and the Type 100 submachine gun) and new soldiers.
Players will both work alone and with the help of squad members to complete their missions. As the squad members gain
more experience, they will develop their own personality and fight more efficiently. From time to time, new recruits will
arrive who will need battle experience to become as proficient as the veteran members of the squad.
The game is currently
pencilled in for release in October 2004.
One slight mistake I did find, was that they mentioned the game is due out in October 2004. We're fairly
positive that you'll be seeing this game in February or March.
