Step into the boots of an agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in war-torn Europe. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond offers up a deep narrative campaign, challenging combat exercises, award-winning short films created just for the game, and explosive, fast-paced multiplayer matches. And it’s now available on the Rift Platform and Steam.

Deep behind enemy lines, fast wits and a fair bit of luck will be your strongest allies. Your goal: Disrupt enemy operations without getting caught. Beyond the front, you’ll need more than good aim to succeed.

As an agent of the OSS, you’ll be tasked on daring missions across land, skies, and sea—from helping man the defensive turrets in a B-17 to storming the beaches of Omaha. Just about anything you can pick up can be used as a weapon, so get creative as you work to throw a wrench in the Nazi war machine. Of course, injuries can happen in an instant. Find a medic or use an injection to regain health and keep an eye out for med kits to replenish your supply.

Peter Hirschmann, writer and director of the original Medal of Honor, returned to write and direct this new addition to the franchise. And developer Respawn Entertainment returns the franchise to its roots, causing players to pause and reflect on the events of the past and how they helped give rise to the world we know today. The immersive nature of VR makes it all possible, letting players experience the sights and sounds of the battlefield as if you were actually there—all while being reminded of the gravity of the situation and the very real stakes involved for those who truly lived it.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is now available on the Rift Platform and Steam—and playable on Oculus Quest with Oculus Link.
