Medal Of Honor VR Game Revealed By Respawn Entertainment (VIDEO)
From the stellar developers behind the Titanfall series and Apex Legends., Respawn Entertainment is currently developing the next entry within the Medal of Honor series. Titled Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, the upcoming title will head to the Oculus Rift for an immersive, World War 2 experience. As an agent of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services), players will explore a war-ravaged Europe in the 1940s. “It’s the closest thing to a time machine you’ll ever see,” said Respawn’s Peter Hirschmann. Check out the trailer:
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond highlights its single-player experience for the Oculus Rift. Players will aid the French Resistance, invade Nazi bases, and explore Europe through historic events on land, sea, and air. “Through the power of VR, you’re climbing a wall, you’re pulling out your gun, you’re catching a grenade in mid-air and throwing it back – those are all things you end up doing yourself,” lead game engineer Terrance Louden tells the audience.
Suffice to say, it’s a narrative-driven experience that doesn’t lack in fast-paced action. For those fond of PvP, there will be multiplayer as well. Here’s what Oculus had to say about Above and Beyond:
Coming in 2020 from Respawn Entertainment and Oculus Studios. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond brings the historic battlefields of World War II back to the forefront for an epic AAA experience like no other. You’ll play as an Allied agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), tasked with infiltrating, outgunning, and outsmarting the Nazi war machine. As you complete your tour of duty across Europe, you’ll collaborate with the French Resistance, working to sabotage Nazi operations from behind enemy lines.”
“With Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, I think we’re finally able to fully realize that vision from twenty years ago of putting you in the boots, allowing you to see through the eyes of someone who was actually there,” Hirschmann said during the interview. “And that’s been the most exciting and fulfilling part of the project.”
As a series that takes pride in “celebrating the everyday people who did extraordinary things,” Respawn and Electronic Arts is determined to take that torch and pass it on to another generation of gamers. As an added deep-dive into the history of World War 2, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond features a story gallery in which the team interviewed veterans and survivors of the devastating war. Ready to feel all the feels?
