    MOHAA: Spearhead

    There has been chatter about the upcoming MOHAA expansion CD in all MOHAA online communities, so I thought it would be time to post a short summary about the expansion pack.

    Name: Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Spearhead
    Release dates: USA: 11.18.2002, Europe: 22.11.2002
    Approximate pricing: UK: 19.99 £ (current pre-order prices: 29.99 $, 16.99 £, Chips & Bits 34.95 $)

    Quoting official EA information
    - Nine expansive single-player levels ranging from behind enemy lines in Normandy to the Battle of the Bulge and the fall of Berlin.
    - Over 12 new multi-player levels including the Arnhem Bridge and the streets of Berlin.
    - New multi-player modes emphasizing more robust team multi-player and team objective-based gameplay.
    New weapons including the British Enfield Mark 1 rifle, the Sten submachine gun, smoke grenades, and the Soviet PPSh-41 submachine gun.
    - Work with squads of American, British and Soviet troops to complete single-player objectives.
    New soldier models, skins and voices including British and Soviet troops.
    - Fully realized 3-D worlds utilizing the powerful Quake® III engine.
    - Sound effects by the award winning Medal of Honor sound design team at EALA.
    Additional information includes that you're going to be able to operate a Russian tank that will be equipped with a rear MG. The ESRB rating will be Teen, unlike the faulty information that stated it would be Mature. In general it can be expected that the EP follows quite much in the footsteps of Band of Brothers. The first mission will be making a paradrop as a US Airborne soldier into Normandy during the D-Day operations. There's really no exact details about this, but I guess we'll have to for the actual release or the previews available quite soon. The screenshots available don't suggest much yet, except that the maps in question seem to be the Battle of the Bulge and the town fight described in Band of Brothers. The maps will include at least a few previously seen maps from the recent map making competition organised by EA.

    A few sidenotes are that the SDK will be available at about the same time as the Spearhead is released, and there will be a sequel made for MOHAA. No details known yet.

    This screenshot appears to be from the mission related to the town fight in the Ardennes, that I already mentioned.
