EA to donate over one million to armed forces and their families


EA announced today that they will be teaming up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to help armed forces members and their families by donating at least one million dollars. This is part of EA’s HONOR initiative to help those who risk their lives in the armed forces.

EA will be releasing a special map pack for Medal of Honor Warfighter to coincide with the release of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s theatrical release of their upcoming film Zero Dark Thirty, which will retail for $9.99 with proceeds going to the HONOR initiative.

“Working with Project HONOR is a meaningful way for us to continue our support for combat veterans throughout the armed services,” said Mark Boal, writer-producer of Zero Dark Thirty. “We are thrilled to be a part of this effort, and we’re humbled that EA is stepping up to the plate with such a significant contribution.”

The map pack will be released on the week of December 17th in conjunction with the release of the movie on the 19th. Look for Warfighter to hit stores in North America on October 23rd and  in Europe on the 26th.

Medal of Honor Warfighter is inspired by real world events, real operations, and real warriors,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer at EA. “We’ve teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to give back to the Special Operations community in honor of the sacrifices they and their families have made for their country and to connect people to the story of the greatest manhunt our world has seen.”
