Update – EA issued a statement clarifying the campaign: “We want to clarify that Medal of Honor will have one seamless single player campaign, not two separate campaigns as was recently reported. You will, however, play as multiple characters that each partake in diverse and unique experiences from both the ‘Tier 1’ and ‘Big Military’ perspectives; hence the ‘Sledgehammer’ and ‘Scalpel’ motifs that were taken out of context.” Read the below information with this in mind.
We already knew that the next Medal of Honor it taking place in Afghanistan and that it follows Tier 1 Operatives, but what we didn’t know (until now), is that the game will feature two single-player campaigns. The first portion revolves around a series of secretive elite-op missions. The complementary campaign, Sledgehammer, will take players away from the elite ops and will focus more on the standard military. These are much larger scale than the elite-op missions, placing gamers in large battlefields and granting them access to helicopters, Humvees, and the like.
Aside from that information, EA has not gone into any greater detail on the variations of the campaigns, Elite Ops and Sledgehammer. That being said, Tier 1 Operatives who consulted for the game noted, above all, “it’s a game about honor.”
When asked whether the game shouldn’t be made, the operatives, who wished to remain nameless, responded, “Not if they’re done respectfully, no. And after speaking with EA, we have full confidence that the product they’re making will do the subject justice. It’s a game about honor, above all. If you look at the font of the logo it’s the word that stands out above all others.”
