Medal of Honor Multiplayer Beta Starting This Week

A two-map multiplayer beta for EA LA and DICE's shooter revamp Medal of Honor will kick off on June 21 for those who pre-order from select retailers, EA has announced, but will begin this Thursday for those who also own Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and join EA's new Gun Club rewards program.

The beta offers the "intense and close quarter combat" mode Team Assault and the objective based Combat Mission in "two maps inspired by real world locations: Helmand Valley and Kabul City Ruins," each with support for twenty-four players.

Ever keen to dig at Activision over the furor and frenzy that arose due to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's lack of dedicated server support on PC, EA boasts that the Medal of Honor's multiplayer--handled by Bad Company 2 dev DICE--"delivers world-class action and dedicated server support."

Medal of Honor is due to hit PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 12. Pre-ordering from EA, GameStop, Amazon, Impulse, GamersGate, Steam, GameTap or Direct2Drive will net you access to the multiplayer beta.
