Respawn Entertainment launched the highly-anticipated Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond a couple of months ago and it wasn’t quite the awesome WWII shooter everyone was expecting. Since then the studio has released several updates to improve the experience, the latest adding Skip Narrative and Seated Crouch features plus support for Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets.
The fourth update Respawn Entertainment has released for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, the new Skip Narrative option does exactly what you’d expect; let you jump through the story sequences. So you can now skip (most) of the campaign’s in-game cinematic story including the mission briefings. The only time you can’t is when you’re interacting with an NPC.
For those who like, or have to play seated, there’s a new crouch option for the single-player (can’t be used in multiplayer). In the Options menu under Accessibility, you can set “Seated Mode Crouch” to “Hold” or “Click.” This can then be activated using the Sprint thumbstick/trackpad button.
Apart from a few smaller tweaks, the other big addition is official Windows Mixed Reality support which includes the recently released HP Reverb G2. The newest addition to the WMR family, you could play Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond using the headset but with official support there shouldn’t be any bugs arising.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond packs a lot in – hence why you need a massive 180GB of space to download it – with a campaign taking you across European battlefields on land, sea and in the air. The multiplayer supports 12-player matches with classic modes like Team Deathmatch and Dominion, to more unique modes like Mad Bomber where everyone runs around planting explosives.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is on the Oculus Store and Steam with both platforms currently offering a 20% discount bringing the price down to £35 GBP until 22nd February. For further updates on the WWII shooter, keep reading VRFocus.
