Medal of Honor multiplayer beta set to launch on June 21 [Updated]

According to a listing from UK retailer Play.com, it appears that a multiplayer beta for the upcoming Medal of Honor will be kicking off on July 5.

The offer states that players who pre-order a copy of the game, will receive access to the long-awaited beta through a code that will be sent on the day it begins. The retailer also mentions that the testing period will end on July 17.

The full listing, which has since been removed, reads as follows:

“Pre-ordering Medal Of Honor from Play.com will give fans the opportunity to join the Medal Of Honor multiplayer BETA when it goes live on July 5th 2010. The BETA will take place between July 5th and July 17th – access codes will be emailed on July 5th. All pre-orders through Play.com will entitle customers to an access code. BETA access details are subject to change at any time.”

Medal of Honor returns to the front lines, this time in today's war. For the first time in the franchise's 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the World War II theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan. Electronic Arts revealed that in 2010, Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle.

Medal of Honor is set to hit store shelves on October 12 in North America and October 15 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Update:

Speaking at their E3 press conference, Electronic Arts has confirmed a Medal of Honor multiplayer beta, set to begin on June 21. The beta will be available to play on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Further information regarding the sign-up process for the testing period has yet to be announced.

I saw some gameplay earlier and it looked awesome. I haven't decided on buying it yet but I might pre-order it just to try out the beta.

Why are people praising DICE as being the best at multiplayer? Sure the Battlefield series were great, but Bad Company 1 & 2 are awful.

DICE failed as soon as they left PC in my opinion.

I thought BC2 (PC) was amazing! It sure wasn't up to par with Bf2, but then again it wasn't supposed to be.

Awful? Far from awful. But they aren't perfect.

lol! agreeeeeeee with that!

What platform is the beta for? All or just one. Maybe my eyes have failed me and I missed it in the article or comments.

I'm really excited. Since MW2 was such a let down, and everyone knows it. This might be the true, good, successor to cod4! Since Dice is doing multiplayer, that will atleast be AWESOME! The graphics will be great!

I agree it was a letdown, but the sales numbers say otherwise. Hell I bet the map pack made them millions too. I feel as if CoD devs have no incentive to do better, especially for a 59 dollar game when MoH and BFBC2 will each be 49.

Ok, would you agree that it was nowhere near as good as cod4? cod4 was legendary, to me atleast.

I would disagree. COD4 is probably better in terms of balance but other than that, I wouldn't necessarily enjoy playing it anymore or less than MW2.

Interesting.

Will it be like the first MOH, a little over the top like Airborne, or a good try at trying to be realistic like Pacific Assault.

I'm looking forward to it considering that the multiplayer side of things is being developed by DICE, of Battlefield fame. And hopefully the singleplayer has returned to it's glory days.

oh wow another modern day shooter, i love the MOH series of games but i cant help think they are a tad late into the game, the market is over saturated with modern day shooters and even more so with FPS hope the game is just as good as the WW2 series. doubt i will buy it brand new though maybe pre owned heh

That I disagree with. If anything the market is more saturated with WWII games then with modern day wars.

They are both saturated. But I think Modern is pulling the lead with saturation.

Don't worry, soon Vietnam will be saturated.
