EA announced that its first downloadable pack for Medal of Honor will be available this December. Inspired by the real locations relevant to the search for Osama Bin Laden, the map is called Zero Dark Thirty (or The Hunt Map Pack in Europe). It also ties in the upcoming movie of the same name.
About Medal of Honor Warfighter
Medal of Honor Warfighter is about the Tier 1 Operators who were working directly under the National Command Authority. They are a relatively unknown entity of handpicked warfighters that were called on when the mission unit must not fail. As posted on the game’s official website:
They are real, living, breathing, precision instruments of war. They are experts in the application of violence. And they exist on an international level for various nations around the globe. In the US, their exact numbers, while classified, hover in the low hundreds.
The new Medal of Honor Warfighter game is inspired by and has been developed with Tier 1 operators from this elite, international community. This personal story was written by actual Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas. In it, players will step into the boots of this elite warfighters and apply their unique skill sets to track down a real global threat, in real international locations, sponsored by real enemies. It doesn’t get any more authentic than Medal of Honor Warfighter, coming October 23, 2012.
