EA and Sony Pictures are teaming up to cross-promote Medal of Honor: Warfighter and the upcoming film Zero Dark Thirty. The Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack for Warfighter takes players to hotspots inspired by real-world locations.
The map pack contains two new locations for multiplayer battles. The first, Darra Gun Market, is an illegal arms market in Pakistan. Chitral is a rugged tribal area of Pakistan near the borders of Afghanistan and China.
The Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack, called the Hunt Map Pack in Europe, will be free with the Limited Edition of Warfighter. Players can get a Limited Edition by pre-ordering the game. The map pack will be sold separately after launch as well. For every copy of the map pack sold to players, EA will donate $1 to Project HONOR, its non-profit program designed to help nonprofit veteran organizations. I assume they're counting sales of the LE in that tally.
Zero Dark Thirty is a film by director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, who previously teamed up for The Hurt Locker. The film depicts the efforts of military and intelligence services to hunt down Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden was ultimately found and killed in Pakistan after a decade of searching.
The map pack will be released on December 17th. Zero Dark Thirty will debut in theaters two days later.
