Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a modern military shooter following a group of top military operatives as they engage in missions based on real-world events, and what real-world event in recent history can match the decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, and the final mission in which he was killed.
The first DLC for Warfighter, titled the “Hunt Map Pack” or the “Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack” after Kathryn Bigelow’s (Hurt Locker) upcoming movie, offers two new maps based on real locations seen in said movie: The Darra Gun Market and Chitral.
Here is a short description of both maps, as seen on the official blog of Medal of Honor: Warfighter:
“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. This small town in Pakistan is home to dozens of back-alley shops and self-taught machinists who are in many cases building guns by hand. Almost no outsiders ever see this town. What better place to hide than where only locales and known tribal members are allowed to enter.”
“Chitral is 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. There are over 1200 small towns scattered throughout the Chitral district and finding someone who doesn’t want to be found would be next to impossible.”
The map pack will be released on December 17 on all platforms, and will cost $9.99 (or £7.99). Those you pre-order the game will receive the pack for free (huzzah!). You can see the short reveal trailer and two screenshots below. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is out October 23 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
