Respawn Entertainment is bringing its most famous IP to virtual reality. During yesterday’s Oculus Connect event, the company announced Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond, a brand new MoH experience tailored for the Oculus Rift platform.
Above & Beyond takes players back to World War II and provides a full-length campaign. Players take the role of an agent in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and go behind enemy lines to “sabotage Nazi facilities, subvert enemy plans, and aid the French”. All of this is said to provide the “most authentic and immersive World War II experience from the series to date”.
Players can also look forward to a number of multiplayer game modes and additional features. The launch will happen sometime in “summer 2020”.
“It’s a great feeling to introduce Medal of Honor to a whole new generation of gamers on a new platform for the franchise,” said Peter Hirschmann, Game Director. “I’ve been fortunate to be a part of this franchise since the beginning, and putting this game on the Oculus Rift allows us to be more immersive than we’ve ever been before. If the game we’re making ignites people’s imaginations and illuminates the world, then we’ve accomplished what we’ve set out to do.”
