Multiplayer Maps in Medal of Honor: Allied Asault
December 21, 2001
by Electronic Arts PR

Other maps that will be included with the retail version include:

Destroyed Village - Countless towns, villages, and hamlets throughout Normandy such as the one depicted here were the site of frenzied door-to-door battles between Allied and Axis infantry. The presence of German snipers often taught the Allied infantrymen 'to stay off the streets'.

The Bridge - It was crucial to both Axis and Allied forces that key transportation routes and were kept under their control to maintain a steady supply of fuel, food, reinforcements and ammunition to the front lines. Neither side would give up this river crossing easily.

Stalingrad - Shattered by Axis artillery and bombardment, a small residential apartment complex in the Russian city of Stalingrad becomes the site of an intense struggle for control between Allied and Axis forces.

Omaha Beach - At the turning point of World War II, the Allies staged a massive coastal invasion of France's Normandy coast. The infantry at Omaha Beach suffered the highest casualty rates of the D-Day landings, but ultimately held their part of the coast after more than a day of intense fighting.

The Hunt - Only a few miles from the D-Day landing sites, the Germans had positioned numerous artillery guns, presighted on specific locations across the coastline. Both paratroopers and the main landing troops were deployed to seek out these guns and render them inoperable, often using TNT charges.

Southern France - Visually, the villages of southern France were quite distinct from their counterparts in Normandy. While the Allies concentrated on controlling the major ports of Cherbourg and Brest, additional Allied forces would approach from the south in the effort to liberate occupied France.

Algiers - During Operation Torch in November of 1942, Allied forces began their campaign to push the Axis forces out of North Africa. Much of the fighting took place across open desert - ideal for tank warfare - but desert towns and villages would also occasionally become the site of infantry skirmishes.

V2 Rocket Facility - The V2 could be launched from fixed positions and mobile launcher convoys, the latter being very difficult to locate. Massive underground fortifications and bunkers built of reinforced concrete were built to house assembly lines and storage space to support these long range missiles.
