EA will be releasing a demo to Medal of Honor Airborne next week on both the PC ans Xbox 360.  The demo will feature Operation Husky where you'll probably be put in a situation to take down a lot of Nazis. The game's set for release on September 4 for the 360 and PC while the PlayStation 3 version won't be out for two months later in the November time frame.


Get ready to get airborne! On August 23, parachute into combat with EA’s demo release of Medal of Honor Airborne™ for the PC and Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system. The Xbox 360 demo will be available on Xbox LIVE™* Marketplace and the PC version will be available on the official Medal of Honor website. 
 

Demo Mission: Operation Husky

A joint allied operation into the island of Sicily, Operation Husky follows Boyd Travers and the 82nd Airborne on their first combat jump on July 11, 1943. After securing and sabotaging four anti-aircraft guns, Boyd is sent to rendezvous with a group of Airborne paratroopers at the edge of the village.  Here, they run into the German Heer army, who is attempting to recapture the village from the Airborne.  Boyd must push to the end of this small hamlet, eliminating Germans along the way, then find a sniper rifle and eliminate the German commander.  He’s successful, but not before the commander has successfully called in reinforcements.

About Medal of Honor Airborne

Medal of Honor Airborne is set to redefine the series and will change the way shooters are played. For the first time in a first person shooter, players airdrop into combat and land anywhere in an open battlefield. Conflict on the ground offers unprecedented tactical choice in vertical, open battlefields with a wealth of attack routes and flanking opportunities. Medal of Honor Airborne is the newest installment in EA’s critically acclaimed Medal of Honor franchise, credited with pioneering the WWII FPS genre when it debuted in 1999. Developed at EA Los Angeles under the EAbrand, Medal of Honor Airborne will be available September 4, 2007 for the Xbox 360 system and PC and in November for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
