MOH sets franchise pre-order record

Tali-blam!

More people have pre-ordered controversial shooter Medal of Honor than any other game in the franchise's eleven-year history, Electronic Arts has announced.

Danger Close Studio and DICE's Afghanistan FPS is one of EA's top "pre-selling" action games ever, apparently.

Earlier this month EA said MOH must sell more than three million copies or there will be no sequel.

MOH hit the headlines when it emerged that players can assume the role of Taliban soldiers in the multiplayer portion of the game.

It had already attracted attention for being set in an ongoing real life war.

A multiplayer beta is due to hit the PC on 4th October. PC gamers will be able to download the beta client on 1st October from the official site. The beta will end at 11.59pm PST on 7th October (just before 8am the day after in the UK).

The game is out in Europe on 15th October. Tom went hands-on last week.

What's that? You'll be able to play it two weeks earlier at the Eurogamer Expo 2010, which takes place from 1st to 3rd October at Earl's Court in London. Hurry? Madness.
