The second expansion pack for Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Breakthrough is set in the European Theatre of Operations from 1943-1944. Players take control of U.S. Army Sergeant John Baker in 11 new single-player missions. Some of the new missions include the battle for Kasserine Pass in North Africa, a fight to capture Messina in Sicily, and the historic battle of Monte Battaglia, also in Italy.
Multiplayer includes both Tug of War and Objective modes, as well as the new Liberation Mode. In Liberation Mode, players who are defeated become POWs and must be rescued by their teammates in order to continue playing. There are also nine new maps in multiplayer, including Anzio Beach, the Monastery at Monte Cassino, and the streets of Messina. New player models, skins, and voices have been added for American, British, and Italian soldiers too.
For historical accuracy Electronic Arts consulted with Captain Dale Dye, a well-known military technical advisor to Hollywood. Dye has worked on such projects as Saving Private Ryan, Platoon, Band of Brothers, and previous games in the Medal of Honor series. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
