Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS – News) today announced the second wave of the Medal of Honor beta, extending personal invites to many EA PlayStation® and PC shooter fans. By visiting http://gunclub.ea.com/ players can sign up to receive benefits ranging from in-game content unlocks, early access to beta tests and demos, as well as the hottest news and exclusive access to development teams. The Medal of Honor development team also confirmed that it is hard at work bringing the beta to the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system at quality. The free Medal of Honor beta program gives players on all three platforms an opportunity to experience the authentic action that the Game Critics nominated for Best Online Multiplayer Award during E3 2010.
We would like to extend a gracious thank you to all of the PS3 and PC players for sharing their candid feedback on Medal of Honor and for pointing out areas of improvement. This is the beauty of a beta your feedback will make the game better for everyone, said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer of Medal of Honor. Unfortunately, we have experienced a delay with the beta on the Xbox 360. To the Xbox 360 community, we say thank you for your patience. We are working to fix the issues that have caused this delay. We are eager to get the game up and running and look forward to receiving your constructive and candid feedback which will certainly help ensure the game exceeds expectations this Fall.
When the Medal of Honor beta arrives on the Xbox 360, it will be open to players on that platform who have pre-ordered the game and will be extended to ensure Xbox 360 players have ample time to play and provide feedback for the final product.

For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the WWII theatre and enters the modern day setting of war-torn Afghanistan told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters. Medal of Honor introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior and relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military that operates under the National Command Authority, taking on missions no one else can handle.
Medal of Honor launches on October 12, 2010 in North America (Oct. 15 in EU) for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PC.
