The development team at DICE and publisher Electronic Arts have announced that their upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter first-person shooter will get a downloadable content pack called Hunt in Europe and Zero Dark Thirty in the United States, which is based on the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
The new map pack will include two maps and is based on the movie Zero Dark Thirty, which is being directed by Kathryn Bigelow, winner of an Oscar for her previous work on The Hurt Locker.
The first map is called The Darra Gun Market and its description reads: “The Darra Gun Market is located in a tribal land where the rules are defined by only two principles – hospitality and revenge. No police are allowed to enter the area and all the laws are made by the tribal leader.”
Gamers will have to deal with narrow streets and houses that might hide gunmen using weapons that were built by hand by local machinists.
The second map is called Chitral and the official description says it represents “another area of Pakistan thought for a time to be one of Bin Laden’s hideouts. A rural mountainous area filled with deep narrow valleys, it has many places that are inaccessible several months each year because of snow and road conditions.”
Those who pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter will get free access to the new DLC, which is set to be launched on all platforms on December 17.
Those who buy it after the game is launched will have to pay 9.99 dollars or 7.99 Euro for it.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be launched on the PC, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 on October 21 in the United States and on October 25 in Europe.
