Electronic Arts has announced that the PC version of the Medal of Honor Multiplayer Open Beta will begin on October 4th, 2010. The Multiplayer Open Beta will run from then until October 7 at 11:59pm PST, and that is only five days before the full game releases.
“The Open Beta of the Medal of Honor multiplayer mode will allow players to sample the authenticity and adrenaline-fueled action that the full game will offer on October 12,” said Frank Gibeau, President of EA Games Label. “We also hope that by offering the Multiplayer Open Beta, we can clear up any misunderstanding about the patriotism and respect that are the foundation of this game. The Medal of Honor franchise has always shown extraordinary reverence for American and Allied soldiers — this game is no exception.”
The Medal of Honor Multiplayer Open Beta will have two teams of 12 face-off against each other in two maps: Kunar Base and Shahikot Mountains. Kunar Base is played in the Sector Control multiplayer mode where two sides fight to control tactical sectors of the map. Shahikot Mountains is played in the tactical and objective-based Combat Mission multiplayer mode where gamers battle through a series of objectives to defeat the opposing team.
