Medal Of Honor: Above And Beyond Trailer Shows Off VR Combat

Medal of Honor is going back to World War 2 and into virtual reality, and we got a look at it in action during Gamescom Opening Night Live.


During Gamescom Opening Night Live, we got a lengthy look at Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. The Oculus Rift game takes place entirely in first-person and without cutscenes, so you'll be right in the thick of the action. You can watch the presentation below.

According to game director Peter Hirchsman, you play as soldier in the OSS, the organization that eventually became the CIA. Though you're working with the French resistance and taking on some spycraft, the trailer also showed plenty of big bombastic action scenes too--from almost being run over by a tank in the French countryside to storming the beaches of Normandy. Hirchsman said it has roughly 120 pages of narrative.

Now Playing: Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Full Presentation | Gamescom 2020

The developer chat ended with a hint of multiplayer, though specific plans weren't shown. Meanwhile, the trailer ended with a display of Oculus Quest, though the studio has previously said that it's a Rift-exclusive. That appears to have been an allusion to the ability to play on Quest through an Oculus Link.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is coming this holiday season.
