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.

So, the open beta for the PC being opened on the 4th of October, and there isn't an up to date thread about it. Release date is pegged to the 12th of October, so it's basically upon us.
It's going to be run off the Frostbite 2 engine, the same as Bad Company 2. I already own Bad Company 2 for the PC, so I'm not too worried about the MP side of things, as it's being developed by DICE (BC2) as well, so it'll be very similar to BC2's MP. More info:
So basically, Rush, TDM and Domination/Conquest. There is another one as well, Objective RAID, which seems similar to Rush. I'll post up more info when I get it.To date we've revealed three modes, Combat Mission, Sector Control and Team Assault. Combat Mission is an objective based game mode where Coalition forces are tasked to clear five consecutive objectives and the insurgents must stop them from progressing. Team Assault is a Team Deathmatch mode where two sides struggle to reach a preset amount of points to win. Sector Control is a domination type game mode where players fight to secure and hold objectives points, contributing to the final score of the match.
If you haven't seen it, you're missing out. This SP trailer is what's gotten me excited about the game in the first place. It really looks great, and it seems to be moving toward the epic set-piece shooter environment like the recent CoD titles. Hopefully though, they maintain the feel of the classic MoH gameplay, similar to Allied Assault back in the day.
So, are you going to get it, what are your thoughts, which platform? I'm definitely going to, just for the SP. I'll check out the multiplayer, as I think the destructible environments of the Frostbite engine will work really well in more urban environments.
