OK, I posted this info over at my site but thought I would pass it along here

The latest EA/MOH news letter is entitled, "Exclusive Screenshot for Classic MOH Fans!". Which is interesting after you see the accompanying screenshot.

Is it me or does that image look familiar minus the high res textures and C-47 high above? All we have so far is that the file is entitled recognition. There is no meta data I can find within the file, nor any other info in the email.

To me it looks a lot like a classic MOH:Allied Assault map called destroyed village. No word if this is a concept map, single play or (please god) a multi player map. I'm trying to dig up some old screen shots I have to compare but damn if memory serves me, it looks close.

OK, I found an old image, which is from May 2001 and also has an airplane in the shot, granted different. - very interesting!
Funny how EA sends us this stuff on a Friday [hand] so we have to wait until Monday to get some answers.

this is probably it. each picture is taken at different place, newer picture is taken from right corner of church in old picture and old picture is taken from left corner of church in newer picture. hope that makes sense. :)

Very interesting!

MOHAA had some excellent MP maps. I wish I'd never sold that game.

I loved the snowy park map. That map was oozing with atmosphere and was a LOT of fun to play.

Stalingrad was awesome too.

While I loved snowy park, that was the least played map on the old Alliedassault.com (AA.com) server.

If this is actually a new map for airborne, I sure do hope they make it much larger!

I hope this isn't a command your squad type game like BIA where also aiming was impossible. If it's like Call of Duty, ill buy it.

Hell yes! Destroyed Village was one of the best MOHAA maps. Stalingrad was also pretty good.

village would rock but i first though it might be hunt which was one of my favs for sure.
