Electronic Arts is reviving the Medal of Honor franchise, which has been dead in the past few years (and it smelled funny, too)…
„Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is an action-packed and incredibly immersive virtual reality experience set in World War II, where you step into the boots of an agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in war-torn Europe. A deep single-player campaign takes you through historic events on land, air, and sea, sabotaging Nazi bases, subverting enemy plans, aiding the French Resistance, and much, much more. With the Oculus Rift, we’re bringing players into the Medal of Honor series in an entirely new way, with an experience that transports you back to Europe in the 1940s. It’s the closest thing to a time machine you’ll ever see.
Medal of Honor has always been about celebrating the everyday people who did extraordinary things in the face of overwhelming odds, and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond continues that tradition in new and unique ways. Using interviews and 360-degree footage, we’ve had the privilege of capturing powerful first-hand stories from combat veterans of the war, using state-of-the-art technology to preserve their stories for future generations. It’s an incredible feeling for us to be back working with this series again, telling unforgettable stories of the men and women who stood up and fought against evil. We can’t wait to share more with you over the next few months,” the director, Peter Hirschmann says. He also confirmed that Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will also contain a multiplayer mode.
The game, which is developed by Respawn Entertainment, will launch in 2020 on the Oculus Rift (so it’s not an ordinary PlayStation 4/Xbox One/PC title). After 2012’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter (which was easily the worst game in the series!), it’s a question whether Above and Beyond can restore the franchise’s reputation.
