Featuring spectacular graphics and all-out combat intensity, Medal of Honor Vanguard makes you the driving force in the struggle to liberate Europe.

Medal of Honor Vanguard Q&A

Could you give us a little back story on the game? Who is the hero, where will the players fight?

You play as Corporal Frank Keegan of the 82nd Airborne Division and Medal of Honor Vanguard's missions take place at some of most harrowing battles of World War II. You and your allies drop behind enemy lines, sometimes landing right on top of entrenched Axis positions.
A few of the game's locations include Operation Husky in Sicily, where the men land off-course and discover a coastal gun battery firing out on Allied ships, and Operation Varsity, the final push over the Rhine into Germany.

How important the storyline will be in the game - is it about the characters and cutscenes, or the action is the "star" of the game?

We want the player to feel like they are part of the story rather than that it's being told to them. Much of the game's story is based around events and expressing them in the most immersive way possible. One aspect of creating that experience that we're particularly proud of is the game's AI dialogue system, which really brings the frontline experience to life. With it, the AI characters regularly comment on the changing face of the battlefield. For example, allies give frequent feedback about what's going on around the player, from providing enemy locations, to yelling about a nearby grenade, to saying when it's clear to rush a machine gun nest. And besides sounding great, the dialogue informs the tactical decisions made while playing the game.

What will be the most spectacular levels, epic scenes?

The Medal of Honor series is well known for having numerous cinematic moments throughout and the team has worked hard to ensure that continues with MoH Vanguard.

The player's introduction into scenes like the beginning of Operation Husky, a night-time attack on a small town in Sicily is particularly spectacular looking.

Many people including press, and within the EALA studio have noted that what we've been able to accomplish great moments visually using the PlayStation 2 which speaks to the talents of the team we've assembled here on Vanguard.

  • Realistic WWII Combat: True-to-life encounters test your strategies and reflexes on the battlefield.
  • The Course of the Battle is in Your Hands: Choose to run and gun in order to storm the Axis defenses, or use your sniper rifle to carefully pick off foes from behind cover.
  • High-Fidelity Visuals: Engage the enemy on the most visually stunning Medal of Honor battlefields to date.
  • Listen Up, Soldier: Your allies provide the tactical info you need to survive in an explosive and ever-changing war zone.
