Respawn Entertainment only teased Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond for Oculus Quest 2 just over a month ago and now a release date has been confirmed, and there’s literally only a week to wait.
The news arrived today via the Oculus Blog, confirming that Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will be arriving on 15th November 2021. It’ll retail for $39.99 USD (slightly cheaper than the PC edition) and support cross-buy with the Oculus Rift if you already own that version. Unfortunately, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond for Oculus Quest 2 won’t support cross-play.
On the plus side, this version will still feature all the other content found on the PC version, such as the 10-hour campaign, all the live-action documentaries Respawn Entertainment filmed, and the multiplayer of course. The latter consists of 12-player maps and five game modes including Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Mad Bomber, Domination, and Blast Radius.
When it comes to the campaign Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond takes you across European battlefields with land, sea and air missions. You step into the shoes of an OSS officer during World War II, working with the French Resistance to sabotage Nazi plans. Levels task you with infiltrating a U-boat to blow it up, running across the beaches of Normandy and scuppering enemy aircraft attacks.
With all of that content Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond takes up a whopping 45GB of storage space, so if you own the 64GB Oculus Quest 2 you might need to clear a bit of space. The shooter is also the second VR title on the platform to only support Quest 2 – the other being last month’s Resident Evil 4 – with original Quest owners missing out.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond arrives on Monday, 15th November for Oculus Quest 2, retailing for $39.99 USD. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the WWII shooter, reporting back with any further updates.
