According to a trailer at the Game Awards it was Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond surprisingly released for PC a day earlier than planned. The enthusiasm after the first weekend was not quite as positive as the Respawn Entertainment team had hoped.
After over 450 reviews at Steam the VR shooter is currently only rated as "balanced" by the players. Criticisms include problems with game mechanics such as reloading or gripping objects, hardly any graphics options or the "smooth turning" of the camera, which is important for many VR players. The long loading times on an HDD hard drive have also been criticized. For many users, installing it on an SSD is out of the question because Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond takes up over 180 GB on the hard drive.
As much as 340 GB are required to unzip the data. Even before the launch, the system requirements made headlines. For the VR shooter, a GPU comparable to the RTX 2080 is required – for the CPU an equivalent to the Intel i7 9700K.
The Respawn Entertainment team has already responded to player feedback and promised improvements. There should be a new update for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond this week. The content includes "Smooth Turning" as well as fixing numerous problems that various users have reported in the past few days.
