EA: Medal of Honor won’t be a “propaganda piece”

EA’s told IncGamers Medal of Honor won’t be barking out The Star Spangled Banner.

“It’s not going to be a big propaganda piece where we wave the flag, or anything like that,” said GM of EALA Sean Decker. “It’s literally about the people that’re on the ground.”

Decker also went as far as comparing the shooter to the movie “The Hurt Locker”.

“I think, again, it was trying to stay out of all the politics,” he said.

“There’s been a lot of really good movies – the Gotham Awards just came out and Hurt Locker was the top one. It has nothing to do with the war in Iraq and why it started, or anything else – it’s just about the men on the ground, what they go through on a day-to-day basis, and their emotions.”

The reboot, which is being co-developed by EALA and EA DICE on the single-player and multiplayer aspects respectively, was recently given an estimated release for Q2 FY2011, or July-September 2010.

    The previous MoH games werent about how and why the war started either. But they were still about a US soldier pretty much single-handedly winning the war…

    Nice to see a “real-life” FPS that’s not pro-america.

    CoD doesn’t have the flag waving overly patriotic theme either.
    There’s flag waving in WaW but that’s a soviet flag, as you storm the Reichstach.

    “CoD doesn’t have the flag waving overly patriotic theme either.”

    You don’t see the flag, but the “America is the hero” thing and American imagery is waved in your face so goddamn much in MW2 that it becomes pretty nauseating.

    I must have missed that bit because I was too busy trying to get a Scotsman to aim a throwing knife into the face of a US four-star General.

    You mean before or after you stormed the White House?

    It’s there becuase it’s a well known land mark. An interesting setting for a war torn area. It never goes all patriotic. Infact if you follow the storyline (how ever confusing the talking loading screens may get) it actually goes quite a bitt against the US government. And the stuff the SAS get up to…with the sub….Saying more would be a bitt spoilerific.
    It’s much more about the soldiers and the crap they have to deal with in a larger conflict between the US and Rusia.

    I dont recall it going “against” the US government, the game makes it pretty clear that General Shepard is acting purely of his own accord behind the US governments back.
    Incidentally you can see an in-depth summary of the games plot HERE.

    But that’s just it, it’s his blinding patriotism that leads him to that. Thinking an all out war can let him deal with the US’ enemies on his own terms.
