GameSpot has learned that Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the visually impressive Quake III-powered first-person shooter, will indeed be at the Electronic Arts booth at this year's E3. However, show attendees interested in getting their hands on the World War II-themed game might be out of luck. According to several sources, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault will remain strictly behind closed doors. Despite this secrecy, however, Electronic Arts is rumored to have an elaborate booth setup consisting of a US Navy landing craft with a ramp that leads into the small demo room. Several uniformed officers will also be patrolling the area, undoubtedly to make sure that no one without proper credentials compromises the security of the landing vehicle.

Electronic Arts will most likely show the invasion of Normandy sequence of the game at the show. This level will have players jump off an amphibious landing craft at Omaha Beach and attempt to reach the cliffs of the devastated beachhead while avoiding German landmines, barbed wire, artillery, and machine-gun fire.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is being developed by Oklahoma-based 2015, and it is being overseen by EALA, a division of Electronic Arts. The game is scheduled for release later this year. For more on Allied Assault, be sure to take a look at our previous coverage of the game and stay tuned for a hands-on update on the game early next week.
