Video Game company EA has been reaching out to partner with first-tier military manufacturers for the release of the latest installment of its highly-anticipated Medal of Honor series, called Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The brands will be included in the final version of the game, and players will be able to fight using their products during play.
This move has received positive feedback from critics. Military and weapon enthusiasts have praised the inclusion of the products in the games, and some wonder why this hasn’t been done sooner. EA claims that the plan leads to a greater sense of in-game authenticity. As a blurb on the Medal of Honor site states, “Medal of Honor Warfighter partners with real world brands that supply Tier 1 Operators around the world with weapons and equipment. Through these partnerships, Medal of Honor Warfighter delivers unrivaled authenticity and gives back to the military community through charitable co-operations.”
EA is slowly revealing their partners, and there are plenty more still due to be announced, but so far SureFire, Trijicon, U.S. Optics, and LaRue Tactical are on board, along with many others. You can see a full list of the announced partners here:
The game doesn’t come out until October 23, but until then you can check out some of the videos below:
