Respawn Entertainment and EA have sent out the official launch trailer for Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond, the series’ first foray into virtual reality. The game launched last Friday on Steam and is currently sporting about 500 player reviews and a “Mixed” rating so far. The single-player game allows players to experience some of World War II’s most iconic events from a first-person perspective, a novelty for the series so far. Players will take part in air, land, and sea events including infiltrating Nazi bases, sabotaging enemy plans, working with the French Resistance, and much more. There is also an online PvP mode available.
MoH: Above and Beyond is an action-packed, immersive VR 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 bursting with authentic detail takes you through historic events on land, air, and sea, sabotaging Nazi bases, subverting enemy plans, aiding the French Resistance, and partaking in the biggest moments of the war.
In addition to the rich narrative campaign, you’ll be able to hone your skills in challenging combat exercises, go deeper into the history with award-winning short films created just for the game, and test yourself against your fellow soldiers in explosive, fast-paced multiplayer matches. Multiplayer modes take place on numerous sites across Europe and feature competitive modes where you fight alone, with a team, or even scramble to plant and diffuse timed explosives.
You’ll need more than good aim to succeed in your mission. Use anything in the world as cover, throwback enemy grenades, swim from sinking ships and dive out of burning airplanes. You’ll have to stay on your toes if you want to make it out alive. You’re not watching history, you’re experiencing it, like never before.
