If you've been counting the days until Medal of Honor Warfighter hits store shelves, the wait is over. At least in North America anyway, gamers in Europe will have to wait until October 26 to get their hands-on Warfighter. The game puts players in the shoes of the most elite soldiers in the world.

EA promises that Warfighter will deliver the only true modern military shooter experience of the year featuring 12 Tier 1 units from 10 different countries. Available fighting units for players to choose from include Polish GROM, German KSK, Canadian JTF-2, and U.S. Navy SEALs among others. The video game is based on the Frostbite 2 game engine promising good graphics.

The game features multiple player modes allowing head-to-head fighting online and a new multiplayer co-op feature called Fireteams. Fireteams are supported in eight real-world maps. The game also features an in-depth single player campaign that allows players to conduct all sorts of missions from rescuing hostages to destroying pirates on the Somali coast.

The video game is available for the Xbox 360 and the PS3. PC gamers can also pick up a copy in stores. EA is also offering a Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition version that includes the Zero Dark Thirty map pack in the US and Europeans will get The Hunt Map Pack at no additional cost.
