Medal of Honor open beta begins

Taliban Team Name Removed from Multiplayer Match-ups While Gameplay, Environments, Weapons and Character Models Remain the Same

Posted on
Electronic Arts announced today that PC gamers worldwide can now play Medal of Honor. For just three days – until October 7 at 11:59pm PDT – EA has pre-released a portion of the Medal of Honor multiplayer game, allowing thousands of players worldwide to see that Medal of Honor delivers unparalleled authentic action set in the unforgiving Afghanistan terrain using real-world weapons. The Open Beta also allows the development team to load-test the multiplayer servers to ensure easy connectivity and a smooth play experience when the game launches on October 12. Gamers can download the Open Beta today at www.medalofhonor.com/pcopenbeta.

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.

“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,” said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer, Medal of Honor. “All elements beyond the substitution of the Taliban team name in the multiplayer portion of the game will remain unchanged. We have released this PC Multiplayer Open Beta to let players see for themselves.”

Medal of Honor hits retail stores on October 12 2010 in North America (Oct. 15 in EU) on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
