Operating directly under the National Command Authority, a relatively unknown entity of handpicked warriors are called on when the mission must not fail. They are the Tier 1 Operators.
Over 2 million Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines wear the uniform. Of those, approximately 50 thousand fall under the direct control of the Special Operations Command. The Tier 1 Operator functions on a plane of existence above and beyond even the most highly trained Special Operations Forces. Their exact numbers, while classified, hover in the low hundreds. They are living, breathing, precision instruments of war. They are experts in the application of violence. The new Medal of Honor is inspired by and has been developed with Tier 1 Operators from this elite community. Players will step into the boots of these warriors and apply their unique skill sets to a new enemy in the most unforgiving and hostile battlefield conditions of present day Afghanistan.
There is a new enemy. There is a new war. There is a new warrior. He is Tier 1.
Within five days of being released, the newest Medal of Honor game by EA sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide. It also debuted on the UK gaming chart at number one. The game has been available in the US for five days, while it has been available in Europe and Asia for two days. The first person shooting game revolves around the conflict of UK and US troops with Afghanistan. The game has already had its fair share of opposition. Including, UK Defense Secretary Dr. Liam Fox who says the game is un-British because it allows for players to play as the Taliban and oppose UK and US troops.
