Virtual Reality (VR) is becoming a popular medium for game companies to bring back IP’s. Valve did it with Half-Life Alyx earlier this year to great critical and commercial acclaim, and after Medal of Honor Warfighter in 2012, it seems the series could be getting a shot in the VR spotlight as well. Some fresh Medal of Honor Above and Beyond VR gameplay gives us a first look at a very impressive game.
Medal of Honor Above and Beyond VR gameplay – A new reality
Medal of Honor is one of the oldest FPS franchises that wasn’t able to stand the test of time. However, as recent years have shown us, it is entirely impossible for once forgotten series to make a triumphant return. The Wolfenstein Trilogy, and the Doom Duology have shown us that there is a hope for forgotten FPS series to make a return on modern platforms.
Medal of Honor Above and Beyond is going to be the series first game in almost 8 years, but it is, unfortunately, a VR exclusive experience. The game takes us back to its humble World War roots and delivers pure unadulterated gameplay that shows what the series was best known for.
With the series once again finding its identity, perhaps we can see it return to modern consoles as well?
