EA’s Project HONOR Initiative
EA has announced their launch of the Project HONOR campaign which will give a minimum of one million dollars to charities that benefit real veterans. It turns out that EA is not just making games for the money and they, unlike other developers out there, care about more than just themselves. The game that is going to help contribute all of this money to those real veterans out there is Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The only thing that players need to do is purchase the map pack that will be coming out with Medal of Honor and EA is not just providing amazing content, they’re giving players so many reasons to pick it up and at least one of those reasons is completely selfless.
Not only are these two maps included in the Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack going to be available no later than December 17th for ten bucks, but EA is not just matching the money used for the expansion. EA is actually going to take a portion of each purchase of Zero Dark Thirty and use the actual player’s money to help these real veterans everywhere and their families. Not only are players going to be playing multiplayer shooting in two real locations around the world that have seen REAL conflict, but they are going to have a sense of accomplishment that has not been given in this form before. I really hope EA can start some sort of movement with this action and they deserve more than just a day of recognition for it.
Project HONOR is great in itself, but let’s get down to the content of the map pack itself. Zero Dark Thirty is going to provide two multiplayer maps which includes the Darra Gun Market in Pakistan and Chitral, which is bound by Afghanistan in a rugged area with tribes everywhere governing the area. Not to give too much away, Medal of Honor: Warfighter is going to be one of the best, real-time games putting players in the boots of Tier-1 soldiers soon.
