Today, EA, Respawn and Oculus released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated upcoming VR title, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, which showed off the game’s multiplayer experience for the very first time. Fans can expect intense action in familiar and brand new battles as they dominate their foes across the game’s five multiplayer modes.
Along with classics like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Domination, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond introduces two new game modes: Blast Radius, an explosive take on King of the Hill, and Mad Bomber, where players defuse enemy bombs while planting bombs of their own.
Mad Bomber in particular was designed from the ground up for virtual reality: bombs can be placed anywhere, and players will have to hunt for bombs with their eyes as well as their ears using 3D positional sound to hone in on their locations and defuse them before they go off.
Players can also expect a variety of weapons and maps to choose from. Each weapon handles differently than the next, allowing gun feel to factor into player preferences, and with a dozen maps in the game, there will be plenty of stage-specific strategies and gambits to explore.
