Set in the Pacific Theatre of WWII, Medal
of Honor Pacific
Assault for the PC represents a unique addition to the award-winning Medal
of Honor franchise. Players step into the boots
of Marine Private Tom Conlin and feel his shock at the destruction
of the American fleet at Pearl Harbor , his growing resolve in the
fight for Henderson Field on Guadalcanal , and his triumph at the
battle for Tarawa Island .
Medal of Honor Pacific Assault combines seven expansive
single-player missions covering 25 levels with over nine new multiplayer
maps and includes new locations, new weapons, and new soldiers.
Players will 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. Periodically,
green replacements will arrive, and these recruits will need battle
experience to become as proficient as the veteran members of the squad.
Multiplayer modes will allow the player to go head-to-head in Free-for-All
or join a team to complete objectives and destroy an opposing team
in Objective-based and Team Deathmatch modes.
EALA continues to work closely with the Congressional Medal of Honor
Society (CMOHS) to ensure the Medal of Honor Pacific Assault reflects
the ideals and integrity of the prestigious Medal of Honor. Electronic
Arts is privileged to be partnered with CMOHS in the Society's continuing
education and awareness efforts. You can learn more about the Society
and the recipients at the official Society website, www.cmohs.org .
The team also consulted with Capt. Dale Dye, one of the most respected
military technical advisors in Hollywood today , to insure the authenticity
of the game. Dye has made his mark with projects such as Saving
Private Ryan , Platoon , and Band of Brothers as
well as all previous games in the Medal of Honor franchise.
