EA is donating $1 Million to America's Vets with the Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty map pack
EA and Sony Pictures have announced a cross-promotional partnership in North America that will result in a $1 million minimum donation to charities benefiting the nation’s veterans.
In anticipation of the release of the upcoming movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' (which chronicle's the decade-long hunt for the al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and his death at the hands of the Navy SEAL Team) and EA's Medal of Honor Warfighter, players can help give back to the nation’s real warfighters with the Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack.
EA will donate a portion of the map pack sales as part of its commitment to give back at least $1 million through its Project HONOR campaign, a program created to drive charitable contributions to nonprofit veterans organizations. The pack will be available for sale in the week of December 17th, in conjunction with the theatrical debut of Zero Dark Thirty.
The Medal of Honor Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack includes two new multiplayer maps inspired by real world locations. Set in one of the most dangerous hotspots in the world, the first map is Darra Gun Market, Pakistan’s flourishing arms bazaar. Darra, the largest illegal arms market in the world, is a tribal land based on two principles – hospitality and revenge. No police are allowed to enter the area and the laws are made by the tribal leader. The second location is Chitral, which sits in the far north of Pakistan, bounded by Afghanistan to the west and China to the north. It is a remote, rugged area governed by tribes that will not allow even the Pakistani army to operate there.
“Medal of Honor Warfighter is inspired by real world events, real operations, and real warriors,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer at EA. “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.”
The Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition includes the Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack in North America and the Hunt Map Pack in Europe at no extra charge. Players that pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter before the game launches on October 23rd are ensured a copy of the Limited Edition.
