Medal Of Honor
October 2, 2010 by USA Post
Medal Of Honor, The project came on board from the beginning to offer support in the development process, the U.S. military did not learn about the inclusion of the Taliban (now retired) and a playable faction in multiplayer Medal of Honor until the game was almost complete.
As reported by Kotaku, the Defense Department was “somewhat surprised” when they heard several players from the Ministry of Health, according to Kenneth Hawes, director of Public Health of the U.S. Army Affairs Office of the Western Region. Although the Army provided early support for the game – including recording the sounds of shooting, allowing photo sessions Army vehicles and equipment, and consulting in the history of the game’s campaign – Hawes said he was not informed of Multiplayer mode, and do not ‘t know about it until everyone else did after the multiplayer was shown at E3 back in June.
“We immediately contacted Electronic Arts and ask them to give us a demonstration of the capabilities of the game,” said Hawes. “You have to understand I’m not a player. We offer support in major motion pictures, television and video games, but I did not grow up with video games. So I personally was a little disappointed that includes such a scenario.”
And Hawes was not alone – said that after learning about the Taliban in multiplayer, the Army, even briefly considered pulling its support for the game as a symbolic gesture. “From a legal standpoint we have no authority to make a production company or something of the change of developer,” said Hawes, saying that the elimination of aid would only have amounted to a “statement of disappointment.” However, Hawes said he never sent a formal request to eliminate the Taliban as a playable faction, and the Army decided not to send an official letter of support, as the elimination of “would have been a meaningless document.”
Still, Electronic Arts announced yesterday that they were removing the “Taliban” as a playable faction in multiplayer Medal of Honor, and elected opposition party name of the game in multiplayer mode, literally “strength of opposition.” EA declined to comment on the report from Kotaku, but in explaining the decision to expel the Taliban from multiplayer, executive producer Greg Goodrich said it was the result of “comments from friends and relatives of fallen soldiers who have expressed their concern the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer part of our game. ”
“This is a very important voice for the Medal of Honor team,” Goodrich said the statement. “This is a voice that has earned the right to be heard.”
