EA has signed a deal with Sony Pictures to cross promote Medal of Honour: Warfighter. The deal, which will see EA’s shooter promoted alongside a Sony Pictures movie called Zero Dark Thirty will result in a minimum donation of $1 million dollars to selected charities.
The movie is about Operation Neptune Spear, the special forces operation to find and kill Osama Bin Laden in May 2011.
There will be a Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack for Warfighter which will be free to those who buy the limited edition of the game. Both maps in the pack are set in areas of Pakistan governed by tribal leaders. One is based around a notorious gun market and the other is set in the mountainous north of the country. The map pack is due on December 17th, with $1 per sale going to charities set up to help US veterans.
In Europe, the map pack will be called The Hunt (which we reported on earlier) and it also comes with 6 weapons load outs inspired by the Navy SEALS and the Pakistani military.
