EA has revealed that its latest iteration of Medal of Honor is the most pre-ordered in the series' history.
The Afghanistan-set modern warfare game has garnered the most pre-release sales in the eleven years since the line launched.
Numbers were not provided however, while previous installments arguably pre-date the current trend towards retailer-promoted, bonus-laden pre-orders.
Controversy surrounding the game's option to play as Taliban soldiers in multiplayer has helped to raise the title's profile, while US pop band Linkin Park were drafted in to help promote this series reboot.
Medal of Honor launches October 12 in the US and October 15 in Europe.
