This December, Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be launching a map pack themed around the hunt and capture of Osama Bin Laden in conjunction with the movie Zero Dark Thirty, itself about the same subject. Although Australians will known it as “The Hunt Map Pack” instead, the maps are directly inspired by the capture of the infamous Al Quaeda leader.
“The first map is Darra Gun Market, Pakistan’s flourishing arms bazaar,” writes the press release. “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.”
EA is donating $1 from the the sale of each map pack (priced at $15.95) to various charities designed to support armed forces veterans across the globe.
