Slated to arrive later this month, Electronic Arts, the studio behind Medal of Honor, is reversing its earlier decision that spurred controversy surrounding the game, which takes place in Afghanistan. The company had previously defended its position to allow its multiplayer gamers to select if they want to play and assume the role of the Taliban in the game; that decision had prompted the U.S. military to ban sales of the game on bases when it would launch. However, the company is now saying that it is making the change to rename the Taliban role to opposing forces in reverence to American soldiers and their families: “We are making this change for the families of those who have [made] the ultimate sacrifice.”
