EA has just announced that its latest Medal of Honor installment will hit on October 12th in North America, and October 15th in Europe. They’ve also released this new trailer entitled “Leave a Message”, that shows a Ranger platoon heading into combat in Afghanistan, and is partially influenced by series creator Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.

“Medal of Honor  is an authentic look into today’s war. Inspired by real people and real events, the game puts players in the boots of today’s warrior — from the infantry ground pounder to the Tier 1 Operator,” said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer of Medal of Honor. “We are proud of this piece because it offers a glimpse into the game we’re creating, while also showing the mindset of these warriors.”

Goodrich has a blog on the official site talking about their inspiration for the trailer.

We brought our lukewarm impressions of the game to you here, let’s hope the game has more to offer us come October. Remember- DICE is doing the multiplayer!
