Electronic Arts today announced Medal of Honor Vanguard™, the latest installment from EA’s critically-acclaimed Medal of Honor™ franchise which has been credited with pioneering the First-Person Shooter (FPS) WWII genre when it debuted in 1999. Building on the key tenets of the franchise including historical accuracy and authenticity, Medal of Honor Vanguard will ship to stores in March 2007 under the EA brand for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, as well as the Nintendo Wii.
Step into the boots of Frank Keegan, Corporal of the 82nd Airborne Division and engage in battles throughout Europe.
