Listen Medal of Honor, we've been friends for a long time. I was there with you at the beginning on the PS1, I was awestruck by the starkly realistic and very respectful D-Day level in Frontline on the GameCube, but...this is going a little too far. I know the new movie is out and all, but don't you think a Zero Dark Thirty map pack for Medal of Honor Warfighter
just might be in slightly poor taste?
I mean, it was only last year that this really happened. Now, a realistic recreation of what actually took place that day, I might--might--
be able to understand. But a multiplayer map pack where people endlessly blow each other away in fake combat, inspired by locations involved in the killing Osama Bin Laden? Maybe not the best idea. I mean it's pretty cool you're donating $1 from each map pack sold to support veterans organizations, but still. I'm only saying this because I'm your friend, MoH, and--oh, wait, it's already out? Well...good luck with that.
EA Sends Players to International Hotspots with Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Danger Close™ Games, a studio of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that the Medal of Honor™ Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack is now available on Origin.com. This coincides with the release of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s new film, Zero Dark Thirty, directed and produced by Academy Award® winner Kathryn Bigelow and written and produced by Mark Boal, in limited release on December 19. In a unique, philanthropic-directed, cross-promotional partnership in the US and Canada, EA is donating to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation* $1 from each Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack sold up through March 19, 2014 as part of its overall Project HONOR charitable donation commitment of a minimum of $1 million. Project HONOR is a program created to drive charitable contributions to nonprofit veterans organizations. The pack will be available December 18 on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace and the PlayStation ®Network.
The Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack includes two new multiplayer maps inspired by two of the most dangerous locations in the world – Darra and Chitral. The first map, Darra Gun Market, is based on Pakistan’s flourishing arms bazaar, which is the largest illegal arms market in the world. The second map, Chitral Compound, is a remote, rugged area governed by tribes which won’t allow the Pakistani army to operate. The Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack will also include six new weapon configurations, 14 new weapon camouflage skins and 10 new multiplayer ranks.
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar® winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The HurtLocker) for the story of history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man.
Medal of Honor Warfighter, written by actual U.S. Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas, puts players in the boots of today's most highly trained and skilled warriors. From rescuing hostages in Abu Sayyaf's stronghold in the Philippines to assaulting Al-Shabaab's "Pirate Town" on the Somali Coast, Medal of Honor Warfighter features international hotspots in the single player campaign and introduces international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer allowing gamers to show their national pride online.
Medal of Honor Warfighter is now available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC. Players who previously purchased the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition will be able to download the Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack in the US and Canada and The Hunt Map Pack in Europe at no extra cost or it can also be purchased separately for $9.99 or 800 MS points.
