Despite putting up a brave front, EA have decided that they should bow down to peer pressure and remove the Taliban from the game's multiplayer modes.
"We have also received feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game. This is a very important voice to the Medal of Honor team." explained Medal of Honor executive producer, Greg Goodrich.
The Taliban will now be known as the "Opposing Force", which couldn't really be a more neutral name if it tried.
The game is due out on the 12th of October in North America and the 15th of October in Europe on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
