Medal of Honor PC beta opens until October 7

If you’d like to get a taste of the new Medal of Honor before the full game comes out a week from Tuesday, now’s your chance. The Medal of Honor multiplayer open beta client is available at FileShack as a 1.58GB download; all you need to do to play is grab the installer and sign up for an EA account.

According to the open beta page, the demo includes two maps—the snow-covered Shahikot mountains and a smoke-covered hill top called Kunar base—as well as combat mission and sector control game modes. Combat mission is a sort of objective-driven campaign, whereas sector control is a "domination type game mode where players fight to secure and hold objective points." The open beta ends on October 7 at midnight, Pacific time.

Hopefully, this open beta is an improvement over this summer’s beta, which was offered to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 buyers on Steam. While the first beta had nice-looking graphics, the gameplay felt a little hacked-together, and I didn’t have a whole lot of fun playing. EA at least seems to be trying to fix boo-boos. On Friday, it gave the game a cheap sheen of political correctness, announcing that the Taliban team in multiplayer would henceforth be known as the "Opposing Force."

    I played for an hour or so last night and enjoyed what I saw. I’ll play again tonight, which should be enough for me to determine whether or not I’ll be picking up a retail copy.

    The beta I played back with the Bad Company 2 release was horrible. There’s no way I would want to play this.

    I played it for a couple of hours more or less. Plays smooth even at highest settings, no lagg. There are a few things to get used too but I’m already sick of both the maps you get to play. I’m booking on good SP action and I think it’ll be decent for that. Don’t know about replay-ability though. The COD games didn’t have much of that for me.

    It actually plays pretty well and feels better than any of the COD titles….. BUT….. try being able to spend more than 2 minutes on any server before you get kicked….. WE NEED DEDICATED SERVERS…….

    That’s right, milk this genre dry, get in on Call of Duty’s success. Like the explosion of WWII shooters back in the day, but that got boring didn’t it.

      who actually plays these games? COD was painful to play, MOH is too. these kind of shooters are not as much fun as say far cry… I like making maps, and then F’ing my friends over on them. that’s the best part. Don’t take out the creativity, or we have nothing left!

        Far Cry, the original, was very good. FarCry 2 was just awful in my opinion. Also I generally enjoyed the SP campaign from CoD 4. I still play the CoD games every once in a while, unlike the FarCry games.

      What? Medal of Honor was out waaaay before CoD was. If anything it was CoD doing the milking.
