Medal Of Honor: Above and Beyond brings the historic battlefields of World War II back to the forefront in an entirely new cinematic and immersive way.

Medal Of Honor: Above and Beyond brings the historic battlefields of World War II back to the forefront as you’ll play as an Allied agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), tasked with infiltrating, outgunning, and outsmarting the Nazi war machine.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond returns to the series’ roots, transporting players to a boots-on-the-ground World War II setting that spans the earth, sea and sky, with players jumping from planes, skiing down mountainsides and sabotaging Nazi bases. Aspiring soldiers won’t be going it alone, however: a veteran sergeant and young British medic will serve as companions throughout the single-player campaign, and the game will feature appearances from other Medal of Honor legends, including Manon Batiste and Dr. Gronek.

The game, which is being built for Oculus Rift from the ground up by a team comprised of veteran developers of the series, will put players in the role of an agent in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Players will go behind enemy lines to sabotage Nazi facilities, subvert enemy plans, and aid the French Resistance. Players will also experience a rich, exciting single-player campaign that takes them through historic events on land, air, and sea, all in virtual reality.

Additionally, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will feature a variety of multiplayer modes, some of which are only possible in VR and with the addition of Steam support, players will benefit from cross-platform play across multiple different devices. Keep an eye out for more information on these modes in the months ahead.

In addition to both a full narrative campaign and multiplayer modes, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond includes a unique story gallery, letting you sit with WWII veterans and survivors to hear their stories while witnessing first-hand the events and locations that have shaped our history. The game will lean into the franchise’s history of education through entertainment, bringing the stories of WWII veterans to life for players in emotionally powerful ways.

In addition to Above and Beyond’s single player campaign, you can hone your skills and teamwork in five robust multiplayer modes on sites across Europe. Master the distinctive handling and reloading of a host of WWII weapons and test yourself against human and AI opponents in high-tempo 12 player matches. With cross-play supported across Oculus and Steam, you can even challenge your friends on other VR platforms. Ready to show the world what you’ve got?

The Modes:

  • Mad Bomber: Score big points with bomb kills and bomb defusals.
  • Domination: Large area zone control.
  • Team Deathmatch: Classic squad-based action. Most kills win!
  • Deathmatch: Every soldier for themselves.
  • Blast Radius: King of the Hill with an explosive twist! Rule the ring with a rocket launcher.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is developed by longtime series developers and in partnership with Oculus from Facebook, and explores the theatre of war in an entirely new cinematic and immersive way. Respawn worked directly with WWII veterans to capture their riveting stories to add context around the historical set pieces players will engage with in the game’s powerful story and unique VR gameplay. 

Medal Of Honor: Above and Beyond is coming Oculus Store for Oculus Rift and Steam with OpenVR support and cross-platform play on Dec. 11, 2020.
