Medal of Honor: Warfighter will not include Bin Laden operation

Medal of Honor: Warfighter will feature real life Tier-1 operations, but the hunt for Osama bin Laden is not included.

More details have emerged about the next instalment of the Medal of Honor franchise, but suggestions that one of the enemies will be Osama bin Laden have been quashed.

Electronic Arts has modelled Warfighter on the real-life operations undertaken by Tier-1 operators in the US armed forces.

These are the same specialists that mounted the mission to take out Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May last year.

However, while Warfighter features recreations of a number of real-life missions, the Osama story is apparently one that is off limits.

"That's not our story to tell. That's 'family business' to
[the Tier-1 operators]. It's been an interesting exercise learning what's okay and what's not okay [to portray in the game]," producer Greg Goodrich told the Official Xbox Magazine.

As for what will be included in the title, the gameplay will benefit significantly by using the Frostbite 2.0 engine used in Battlefield 3, as opposed to the dual engine used in the last title.

The switch enables the game to develop some of the most discreet features, such as gunfire that makes papers blow off desks and swinging chandeliers, which add to the overall experience.

's development house Danger Close says that while it is based on actual events and was co-written by real operators, the aim is not pure simulation, but rather "authenticity".

Preacher, Voodoo, Mother and some of the other characters from the last game will also be involved, and players are promised more choice in how the missions are played out, including what tactics are used.

Danger Close has also confirmed that it will be developing the multiplayer option, and it is likely to feature a hardcore one-shot-kill mode for avid players.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801305241-ADNFCR
