Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Arrives on Oculus Quest 2 Later This Year

Last year saw the surprise return of Medal of Honor on PC. Not seen in action since 2012's Warfighter, Above and Beyond marked an interesting incursion into virtual reality by Respawn Entertainment. Now, it's coming to Oculus Quest 2 headsets later this year.

Announced via the Oculus Blog, they announced Above and Beyond's been "carefully reworked to fit (and run) on any Quest 2." As such, there's no need to use Oculus Link and run it from a PC, though it sounds like Above and Beyond won't be coming to original Quest headsets.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Arrives on Oculus Quest 2 Later This Year

For the unfamiliar, you can the game's official outline below:

The fight continues in Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond’s multiplayer. With 10 maps and 5 different multiplayer modes, get ready for tense head-to-head action on the front lines of World War II. Wield historically accurate weaponry and fend off the enemy in the fields around a French winery, at a snowed-in power station, in the corridors of a wrecked train, and more.

Though critical reception was fairly positive, Above and Beyond saw criticisms for the high-spec requirements required on PCs, so thankfully that won't be an issue here. Notably, it also won an Academy Award for the included the short documentary Colette, becoming the first game to win an Oscar. We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
