More Medal of Honor details this week

The Official Xbox Magazine has scored a world exclusive preview of EA’s Afghanistan-bound Medal of Honor reboot. The issue will arrive on shelves later this week but to tease their coverage a bit, a few things have been divulged upfront.

For one, players will be able to step into the shoes of multiple playable characters throughout the game as well as use a knife melee attack similar to you-know-what-game. Tier 1 Ops soldiers, the group the game revolves around, were involved in development and helped out with the authenticity aspects and made sure the camo, military chatter etc are spot on. And, players will be able to shoot out lights and then use night vision to in all likely hood create advantageous situations.

That’s all the bits and pieces they’re giving for now but it’s safe to expect plenty more once the magazine arrives this Thursday.
