We’ve seen the single-player, but what can we expect from Medal Of Honor VR multiplayer?
Developer Respawn hopes it’ll be something a bit different.
Game Director Peter Hirschmann said as much to Eurogamer in a recent interview. “The sense of presence in multiplayer is crazy, so we’re definitely trying to innovate and take advantage of the best parts of the platform and that’s super exciting,” he said. “I think our multiplayer will hopefully be different from some of the stuff that’s already in the marketplace, but our goal is to be as accessible and as easy to get into as we can be.”
How To Make Medal Of Honor VR Multiplayer Different?
At a guess, we’d wager some of the games Hirschmann is referencing include Onward and Pavlov. Both are modern-era shooters with a focus on realism. In our conversations with Respawn, the developer has spoken about wanting to strike the right balance between authenticity and fun, eschewing realism where necessary. Could that focus be what makes the multiplayer mode different to others?
Either way, we’d still expect a first-rate experience. Respawn is behind excellent multiplayer shooters like Titanfall and Apex Legends, so it has the pedigree. Not to mention that members of the team previously worked on Call of Duty and earlier Medal of Honor games.
So far Respawn is only talking about the game’s single-player campaign, which features over 50 missions. Medal of Honor: Above And Beyond (as it’s called) will take players all over the globe to fight in historic WW2 battles.
We’ve gone hands-on with the campaign already. It’s shaping up to be a welcome return for the series, though we want to know more about its narrative.
The game will release sometime in 2020, so expect Medal of Honor VR multiplayer details in the near future. What are you hoping to see from the online offering? Let us know in the comments below!
