Video game publisher Electronic Arts has announced that it is launching Project HONOR, an initiative that will seek to raise awareness on the sacrifice of Special Operations warriors from the United States military forces and increase the charitable contributions that can be delivered to their families.
The initiative is linked to the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter
and also includes weapon and equipment manufacturers including Kaenon, London Bridge Trading, Magpul, SureFire, Mechanix Wear.
The Navy SEAL Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation will be the main beneficiaries of Project HONOR.
All the companies involved will create lines of products linked to the Medal of Honor
brand and then sell them in order to raise awareness and create charity donations.
Greg Goodrich, the executive producer of Medal of Honor
, stated, “We have a tremendous amount of respect for our service men and women around the world and a deep level of gratitude for the sacrifices both they and their families make on a daily basis.”
John T. Carney, Jr., the president of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, added, “This partnership with EA and Medal of Honor will raise awareness on the work we do to help the families of fallen Special Operations warriors and facilitate contributions that help provide college scholarships for surviving children and financial assistance to families of severely wounded special operations warriors. This is a great way to give back to some of our country’s greatest warriors.”
Developer Danger Close and publisher Electronic Arts have also announced the Medal of Honor Warfighter Military Edition, which will open up exclusive unlocks for military personnel including a special camouflage pattern.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be launched during the fall on home consoles and on the PC and will detail the actions of Tier One Operators in the single-player campaign while allowing players to control a number of types of special forces soldiers in the multiplayer.
