Electronic Arts has announced that the newest installment of the Medal of Honor series, Medal of Honor: Airborne, will ship out this August. Specifically, the game will ship August 28th. As many may have guessed from the title, Medal of Honor: Airborne focuses on paratroopers. Levels begin with a combat drop in which players can control their descent, allowing for more free form gameplay. For instance, if you land in a combat hot spot and find yourself instantly overwhelmed, you might try landing in a quieter spot next time. The question is, will the parachute mechanic be enough to lift MOH: Airborne above the bloated WWII genre? After all, it seems like WWIII is the way to go these days.
