Respawn Entertainment, best known for the Titanfall series and Apex Legends are reviving the Medal of Honor franchise with Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, a VR shooter exclusive to Oculus Rift.
In Above and Beyond, you’ll experience World War II through the hardened boots of an OSS solider (Office of Strategic Services), deep within war torn Europe. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will ship with both a single and multi player campaign and will be available sometime in 2020.
The last Medal of Honor game – Warfighter wasn’t well received and pretty much sealed the fate of the Medal of Honor series. Since then, Battlefield took on the mantle of EA’s flagship first person shooter, sharing the limelight in recent years with games like Star War Battlefront, Titanfall and Apex Legends.
While we are happy to see this franchise being rebooted, it’s a bit disappointing to hear that Above and Beyond will be playable only in VR. That being said, Electronic Arts hasn’t confirmed – or denied that the game will eventually make its way to home consoles and PC, so there is hope.
