What We’re Playing: Medal of Honor for PS3 – Win a Beta Code!

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by

Wait, why are you reading this? You know that the Medal of Honor multiplayer beta is live for the PS3 right now – don’t you?

Beta access is reserved for those who pre-order the full version of Medal of Honor, EA and DICE’s modern-day war shooter that hits the PS3 this October. Luckily, we’ve got 18 beta code vouchers* to hand out to loyal PlayStation.Blog readers – keep an eye on the official PlayStation Twitter feed to find out how to win later today. To get a head start on the giveaway, watch the following video (very) carefully.

**Note: If you do win a beta voucher, you must redeem it on the official Medal of Honor site and specify PS3 to get a code you can redeem on the PSN Store.

At the 2010 E3 Expo last week, Medal of Honor executive producer Greg Goodrich and creative director Richard Farrelly gave us a primer on what’s new (modern-day Afghanistan with modern-day weapons), what’s unlockable (Tier 1 Operator status and…beards?!), and what’s planned for the final release of Medal of Honor this fall. Our E3 multiplayer session highlighted Medal of Honor’s extensive class customization. You can choose between the long-range Rifleman class, which excels at distance-based fighting; the Sniper class, which focuses on long-range marksmanship; and the Special Ops class, which packs grenades and faster-firing weapons for close-range domination.

The weapon modification system also stands out for its modular, ultra-customizable nature. For instance, the Rail slot can be equipped with a red dot sight, iron sights, or a combat scope; the Barrel slot can take a suppressor or muzzle brake. Each mod offers its own advantages and disadvantages, and when you factor in Medal of Honor’s variable ammunition types (hollowpoint rounds, shotgun slugs, extra mags), you’re looking at a highly personalized multiplayer shooter.

Peep the interview video, follow us on Twitter, and prepare to take a shot at a slice of Honor. Salud!

Will the questions be based on the interview?? If so then this isn’t fair for me as I am deaf and I won’t be able to answer the question… :(

GameTitan88 said:

June 24th, 9:37 am

Won’t need to hear? Guess I didn’t need to write down the answers to questions. I thought for sure you would ask about their weapon loadouts for the beta code. Time to watch again, But use my eyes this time! Thanks for the time line! I’ve been refreshing twitter every 5 minutes for 2 hours.

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 9:42 am

    Hollowpoint bullets and shotgun slugs (versus buckshot) are music to my FPS ears.

Kchow23 said:

June 24th, 9:44 am

will the giveaway be something like 50th person to tweet the right answer wins? or 1st person to do so wins? either way time to win me a beta code!

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 9:48 am

Lol every time i see something i pause and see if anything i can get clues from like the license plate on the back of truck with nukmbers lol.

polo155 said:

June 24th, 9:49 am

yea in a be getting busy here in a second, its been 2hrs since this ost went up at the least, guess they’ll miss my tech expertise lol on this beta. unles in next 5 mins. they want those video hits probably. keep pressing play!

polo155 said:

June 24th, 9:50 am

yea i’m a be*

xDAV1Dz said:

June 24th, 9:50 am

I don’t think they’ll ask about the license plate. I noticed that too. It seems too blurry to figure out the numbers and letters.

dbieon12 said:

I prefer FPS on PC because the games seem more adept and challenging.

Battlefield has been a good series but I’m really interested in how MoH turns out on PS3.

It’s been 5 years since the release of BF2 and no game has matched the depth and re-playability of it when it comes to unlockables, vehicles, and non-linear maps. Hopefully this comes close.

Sid on twitter just said at 11:30 pst, just said adter telling us watch vid closely 2 hrs ago.. thats like 41/2 hr’s total from first posting, later ppl enjoy lol *resuming life*.

xDAV1Dz said:

June 24th, 9:53 am

Also, I don’t think people NEED to watch the video to win a key because it says, “to get a head start.” I seriously watched the video 4 times.. and haven’t … seen anything special.

Sweet… 11:30am Pacific

Is the limited edition MoH and MoH:Frontline in every copy pre-ordered? I have been holding off on pre-ordering from because it doesn’t state anything about Frontline and the Canadian site doesn’t have the beta bonus for pre-ordering.

GameTitan88 said:

June 24th, 10:01 am

@77 Of course they’re gonna wait awhile & let more people see the post. Wouldn’t be a competition if they immediately tweeted, It would be “First come, First serve” Have fun resuming life… But for not caring, You seem mad that you wasn’t handed a beta code for being one of the first to read.

xDAV1Dz said:

June 24th, 10:03 am

Well, good luck to everyone!

polo155 said:

June 24th, 10:09 am

lol@81, mad? no, i just spent all the time i can to waiting thats all and being given a beta code for first to read u sound like an idiot AND obviosly i wasnt “the first”… fall back inline!

hellsfire532 said:

June 24th, 10:11 am

I really hope I can get one, I’m drooling over this game not only because I’m an FPS fan, but because its MOH! practically what inspired cod in a way…

Swibek said:

June 24th, 10:11 am

yeah… the first MOH for PS3… i can’t wait… i need the beta

XxTrizzie said:

June 24th, 10:11 am

I think Moh is gonna kill cod

Dear Sid, I am hoping you shy away from using the What we’re playing buzz line,”, other than being hackneyed by other developers and trade literature, it makes for a feeling of negativity of SONY being biased amongst other games. I would hope to hear that my community staffers are aware and ‘playing’ all the games. Just a thought, but enough for me to respond.

ginjaninja88 said:

@ 85 its actually the second medal of honor on ps3 , you cant forget airborne , the beta is very fun from what i have played well done all at dice

GameTitan88 said:

June 24th, 10:28 am

@83 “One of the first” Learn to read. & You call me an idiot? You’re the one forgetting capitalization & butchering the english language with every post. I may not be perfect, But I attempt to not look special ed. Btw, love how you resumed life, But posted here again. Ahhh, Thats right, PS3 is your life. Stop acting like you don’t care, & prepare for the competition.

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 10:32 am

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 10:35 am

EA and DICE and MEDAL OF HONOR has to Equal the best FPS game to come out this year i love how much weapon attachments you have.

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 10:38 am

Yea the beards are for the tier one workers to blend in with the shepards and the other men. So thats a great addition love tht their growing their beards out :D.

xDAV1Dz said:

June 24th, 10:39 am

Ahh. Guys, stop having arguments. And yes, let’s get ready for the competition. I really desire playing MoH for the first time. I really wanted to get the beta earlier but I did not want to preorder the game. Also, I missed some several contests for a code before this one. This is probably my only chance.

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 10:40 am

So has the codes been given out yet?

CryoZero said:

June 24th, 10:41 am

Canada doesn’t count?

tigown said:

June 24th, 10:41 am

I love the beta, but the freezing really ruins the experience for me. Hope these guys can get a patch out soon. How long does the beta last anyway?

Gohogs22 said:

June 24th, 10:42 am

Another Question where would you recieve your codes email ur online account for ps3 where?

Burak_xD said:

June 24th, 10:53 am
