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.
