Respawn Entertainment has confirmed its VR-exclusive WW2 shooter Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will be launching December 11th on both Oculus and Steam with OpenVR support.
Announced last year, Above and Beyond will be the first entry for the Medal of Honor series in eight years, following the 2012 entry of Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The latest entry, being a AAA VR first-person shooter, is one of the most highly anticipated games for 2020. The story will cast players into the role of a combat engineer who was recently recruited into an American espionage organisation, the Office of Strategic Services.
Despite being an Oculus-funded title, Respawn has confirmed that Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond will be available on Steam as well as the Oculus Store when it launches December 11th. An Oculus representative provided further comment on Reddit in regards to a previous concern for the title, “No, the Steam version of MOH will not require a Facebook login. This also means that Steam users and Rift users can not send each other direct invites, but they can find each other in public matchmaking.”
