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.
Now that's exciting news. Something to play for the summer!
