Description

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Breakthrough is the second expansion to Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, and requires the original game. Just like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Spearhead, this expansion takes place in a different part of the war during a different period, compared to the original.

The player is Sergeant John Baker, who has to fight through numerous locations during World War II, from North Africa to Italy, in eleven new levels.

The game also includes nine new multiplayer maps and a new multiplayer mode called "Liberation", in which players must rescue defeated soldiers for them to remain in the battle.

Trivia

German version

There are a number of changes in the German version:
  • All swastikas were removed or replaced with iron crosses.
  • On most posters the text was removed; in one instance a text-only poster was blurred.
  • Magazines lying around were replaced with an empty sheet.
  • With the exception of the finished mission goals, all level statistics were removed.
  • The translation removes all mentions of "Nazi" or mentioning of Germans, e.g. Rommel.
A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).
