Medal of Honor may not return until October but EA has announced fans will get to play the game much earlier - next week in fact.
June 21st sees the launch of the game's multiplayer beta test, for PS3, 360 and PC - and those Battlefield: Bad Company 2 owners whop prepordered the game will get it even earlier, on June 17th.
Beta key distribution will be run from www.medalofhonor.com.
The game is a joint production between EA LA, which is handing the single-player, and EA DICE, which is making the multiplayer.
Medal of Honor officially launches October 15th.
"In selecting a studio to create our multiplayer, there was no clearer choice than DICE. When it comes to online gameplay, they are world class," said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer on Medal of Honor.
"We're excited to be partnering with DICE to deliver a single-player/multiplayer experience that perfectly complement one another. Though the modes and maps are different, both sides of the game carry through the same authentic sentiment of today's soldiers who are fighting today's war."
