In a somewhat interesting partnership, Electronic Arts has announced a downloadable content pack that will be coming up with the release of Medal of Honor: Warfighter. But this is no ordinary map pack – it's actually based on a forthcoming film called Zero Dark Thirty, directed by The Hurt Locker's Kathryn Bigelow. The film deals with the team that hunts down Osama bin Laden.
The pack will feature multiple maps, including the Darra Gun Market, Chitral, and other yet-to-be-revealed locations.
“We’ve teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to give back to the Special Operations community in honor of the sacrifices they and their families have made for their country and to connect people to the story of the greatest manhunt our world has seen," said EA's Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore.
In addition, a portion of the map pack sales will be donated to army charities, part of EA's program to give back $1 million through its Project HONOR campaign. Each map pack sold will see a $1 donation to the program.
“Working with Project HONOR is a meaningful way for us to continue our support for combat veterans throughout the armed services,” added Mark Boal, writer-producer of Zero Dark Thirty. “We are thrilled to be a part of this effort, and we’re humbled that EA is stepping up to the plate with such a significant contribution.”
