Medal of Honor Warfighter getting map pack tied to 'Zero Dark Thirty' film

Medal of Honor Warfighter's Limited Edition now includes the "Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack," a tie-in for the upcoming film, and it will result in a charitable donation of at least $1 million, Electronic Arts announced today.

Zero Dark Thirty reunites writer-producer Mark Boal and director Kathryn Bigelow, who worked together on The Hurt Locker, for another military film; this one tells the story of the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden, which ended last May when SEAL Team 6 assassinated him. The film is due out on Dec. 19, and that week, EA will make the Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack available for $9.99. The publisher will donate $1 from each sale, through its Project HONOR program, to nonprofit organizations that service military veterans and their families.

The pack includes two multiplayer maps set in Pakistan: Darra Gun Market, the world's largest black market for weapons, and Chitral, a remote area in the country's northern region. People who pre-order the Warfighter Limited Edition will receive access to the maps at no additional charge. In Europe, the content will be known as "The Hunt Map Pack"; it will sell for £7.99 in the UK and €9.99 in Europe.

Check out a brief teaser that mentions the map pack and Zero Dark Thirty, and the full trailer for the film itself below that.

Medal of Honor Warfighter launches Oct. 23 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game's Limited Edition also includes access to the Battlefield 4 beta, which is scheduled to be available in fall 2013.

Update: We now have one screenshot of each map. Check them out in the gallery below.
