Step into the boots of Boyd Travers, Private First Class of the 82nd Airborne Division and engage in battles throughout Europe. From rocky beginnings in Sicily to war-winning triumphs in Germany, each mission begins behind enemy lines, with an intense and fully interactive airdrop. Your ability to determine your own starting point dramatically changes the way each mission plays out. View the entire operation from the air, and then control your parachute to choose your landing spot. On the ground, gather your senses and assess the terrain. A wide variety of authentic, customizable weapons are at your disposal, each with distinct characteristics. Choose your path in this free roaming FPS environment.
MEDAL OF HONOR AIRBORNE is a step in a new direction for the franchise. While integrating our state-of-the-art, next-gen technology into every aspect of the game, we are introducing innovations that will redefine the series and impact the genre as a whole," explained Patrick Gilmore, vp/exec producer at EALA. By fully controlling the airdrop from your very first step through landing, MEDAL OF HONOR AIRBORNE adds a new dimension of player choice by letting you decide where every mission begins and how it plays out.

Serving as a military spokesperson for MEDAL OF HONOR AIRBORNE, Capt. Dale Dye, who has worked as the Military Technical Advisor for the last seven Medal of Honor games, will help to create the authentic experience of the new title
