Medal of Honor: Warfighter Military Edition will bundle the limited edition of EA and Danger Close's upcoming shooter with additional in-game content, and will only be available for active, reserve and former military personnel.
The Military Edition includes all the perks of the game's civilian-ready Limited Edition, as well as "exclusive in-game unlocks." One particular unlock is a camouflage pattern named "Project HONOR," which is tied to a real-world promotion arranged by EA to raise money for the families of fallen Special Operations soldiers. This version of the game will only be sold through GovX, an online retailer for verified military, law enforcement or government employees.
For Project HONOR, EA is partnering with several military suppliers to donate to the Navy SEAL and Special Operations Warrior Foundations — in turn, those retailers will have their weapons and gear featured in Medal of Honor: Warfighter. In addition, select retailers will stock Medal of Honor-themed merchandise in their stores, 100 percent of the proceeds from which will be given to the two foundations.
It seems EA learned its lesson after controversy enveloped its 2010 Medal of Honor title, when backlash from "friends and families of fallen soldiers" encouraged EA to change the Taliban in the game's multiplayer component to a much more generic "opposing forces."
