Everything to know about Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond for the Quest 2

EA /

Oculus Blog just announced on November 8 that Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond for the Oculus Quest 2 will release on November 15, 2021, at a price of $39.99 USD.

The game, developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA, was released for PC VR last year. There is no need to worry if you have already bought Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond on the Oculus Rift headset, however, because the game is cross-buy. If you already own the game for the Rift, you will be able to play the Quest 2 version without having to pay extra.

One aspect of the game that should not be overlooked is the sheer size of it on the Quest 2. According to its store page, this game will require 41.18 GB. For those that have the previous standard 64 GB version of the Quest 2, myself included, this could pose a problem. I know for a fact that I am going to have to delete a game or two off of my headset if I want to buy Medal of Honor, and even though I have gotten used to this process from my experiences with other consoles, it still saddens me.

This WWII VR shooter will put players in war-torn Europe to battle in some of the most historic events of the war, including storming the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. After completing the approximately 10-hour long story, you can indulge yourself in 12-player multiplayer with five different game modes: Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Blast Radius, Domination, and Mad Bomber, according to the Oculus Blog.

If you want to learn more about the history featured in the game, there is also “The Gallery,” which contains a collection of documentaries that were made just for the game. One of these documentaries is called Colette, which details the story of Colette Marin-Catherine, a member of the French Resistance. This documentary is the Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Short Subject.

This is an exciting game to come out on the Oculus Quest 2, and it definitely seems like it would be worth the money because of everything it offers. I remember playing Medal of Honor on the PlayStation 3, and if you would have told me back then that I would be playing a Medal of Honor game in virtual reality, I would have laughed. But now, in just about a week, I will be able to play it natively on the Quest 2, and it is crazy to think about.
