Medal of Honour citation: Sergeant First Class xSN1PERRx, pretend videogame army, distinguished himself with actions not quite above the Call of Duty while serving in Afghanistan as a super-secret megasoldier operating in a hush-hush ‘Tier One’ unit, sometimes switching brains to become a frontline grunt who learned about the futility of war and stuff like that.

Want to try out EA and DICE's gritty Afghan reboot of Medal of Honor? Well you can, but it's going to cost you.

We'll post more impressions once we've got the game downloaded.
At their E3 press conference in Los Angeles, EA have announced that the multiplayer beta for the new Medal of Honour game will be launched on June 21st, or even earlier for their hardest of hardcore fans.
