 ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ basing DLC on Bin Laden manhunt

It wouldn’t be a war shooter without some controversy, and EA’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter is stepping into hot water once again with its cross-promotional “Hunt” DLC, a map pack based on locations from the upcoming Zero Dark Thirty, Katheryn Bigelow’s film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

While the descriptions of the maps are little more than real-world info about the actual locations, the map pack will comprise two areas: a town, and a rural areas with mountains and caves.  Both maps are based on the locations for the upcoming film, as well as on real-life areas in which Osama Bin Laden was presumed to be hiding. More information on the maps can be found on the game’s blog.

Honestly, this has me more excited for Bigelow’s movie than for the pack, but cheers to EA for making the decision to donate one dollar of each sale of the pack to charities to support our troops, for a minimum of one million dollars. That is certainly worth something. In any case, you can get a tiny sample of what the pack will have with the promotional video for the pack, which will be releasing on December 17. Fans who preorder the game will get the $12 map pack for free.
