It's destined to be a controversial topic but either way, the downloadable content is coming, like it or not.
EA has announced that it has teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to bring the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter and the Osama Bin Laden hunt movie Zero Dark Thirty together.
EA plans to release a multiple map pack based on the movie during the week of December 17 and a portion of those sales will go to army charities. For every Zero Dark Thirty map sold, EA will donate $1 until at least $1 million has been given away. If you want to grab the DLC right away, pick up the Warfighter Limited Edition; it will come packed with the map pack in question along with early access to the Battlefield 4 beta, set for later 2013.
The pack features two multiplayer maps set in real-world locations; the first is in Pakistan's Darra Gun Market and the second is in Pakistan's Chitral region, where Bin Laden was believed to be in hiding. EA COO Peter Moore says making the Bin Laden hunt available serves to "honor the sacrifices the soldiers and their families have made" and will also allow gamers to virtually experience "the greatest manhunt our world has ever seen."
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is slated to hit on October 23.
