The game incorporates more than just US troops, you'll play as special forces soldiers from around the globe.

The 'Medal of Honor' series is back on October 23rd with the latest installation - 'Medal of Honor: Warfighter.' 'Warfighter' will focus on special operations teams, but unlike its predecessor, won't limit itself to US troops. You'll play as soldiers from the British SAS, German KSK and Polish GROM.

'Medal of Honor: Warfighter' takes the Frostbite 2 engine that was used in the multiplayer component of 'Medal of Honor' and applies it to the whole game. You'll also find this engine in 'Battlefield 3.'

According to executive producer Greg Goodrich, you'll find similarities between the game and real-life events. "Every single mission in this game has a dotted line to a real world event,' he said at a GDC press conference.

'Medal of Honor: Warfighter' will be available on October 23rd and is available for preorder now.
