In conjunction with the upcoming film Zero Dark Thirty, Medal of Honor: Warfighter is going to be getting a pair of maps that depict areas scene in the film, which chronicles the ten year manhunt for Osama Bin Laden. The two maps will be £7.99, unless you get the Limited Edition of the game, at which point they’ll be lovely and free.
As for the maps themselves, you’ve got the Darra Gun Market, which is “one of the most dangerous hotspots in the world, Pakistan’s flourishing arms bazaar. Darra, the largest illegal arms market in the world, is a tribal land based on two principles – hospitality and revenge.” The second is Chitral, “which sits in the far north of Pakistan, bounded by Afghanistan to the west and China to the north. It is a remote, rugged area governed by tribes that will not allow even the Pakistani army to operate there.”
And they’ll be launching on the 17th of December, to coincide with the film Zero DarkThirty which releases on the 12th, written and produced by Mark Boel, who did The Hurt Locker, which means it should, at the very least, be treated with the appropriate level of care for such a hot button topic. There’s a trailer here.
