“The heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers. The decision to remove the Taliban team name was out of respect for the families of these men and women”

The PC Multiplayer Open Beta goes live just days after EA announced that the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer has been renamed Opposing Force (OPFOR). The change applies only to the name of the opposing team in multiplayer — the gameplay, environments, characters models and weapons have not changed. No changes have been made to the single-player game. Medal of Honor remains the same outstanding play experience that Official Xbox Magazine in the U.S. and Games Master in the UK each scored an 85. The team name “Taliban” was removed out of respect for the families of serving, veteran and fallen U.S. Soldiers. To further honor the troops, EA is giving back to several charities including Give Back 10, The Mission Continues and Adopt-a-Soldier. As the list of organizations EA supports continues to grow, visit www.medalofhonor.com/giveback to learn more.

Developed by DICE, Medal of Honor multiplayer delivers world-class First Person Shooter action and dedicated server support with all of the authentic settings, weapons and realistic action depicted in the single-player game. The Medal of Honor PC Multiplayer Open Beta features two new maps inspired by real world locations: 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 objective-based Combat Mission multiplayer mode where gamers battle through a series of objectives to defeat the opposing team. Both modes pit teams of 12 players (total 24 players) against one another with realistic destruction, tactical support actions and a weapon customization system that generates hundreds of combinations.

For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the WWII theatre and enters the modern setting of war-torn Afghanistan. The game is told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters. Medal of Honor introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior and relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military that operates under the National Command Authority to take on missions no one else can handle.

Medal of Honor hits retail stores on October 12, 2010 in North America (Oct. 15 in EU). To find out more information on Medal of Honor or to access the PC Multiplayer Open Beta, visit: www.MedalofHonor.com.
