Posted on September 10, 2012, Ross Lincoln Warfighter Hunt Map Pack Based On Search For Bin Ladin
We’ve already learned that Seal Team 6 combat training is coming to Warfighter, and now we know why. EA has announced that one of Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s map packs is based on the decade-long hunt for Al Qaeda honcho Osama Bin Ladin.
A decade long manhunt. The world’s most dangerous places.
The decade long hunt to find Bin Laden went through some of the most remote and dangerous parts of the world. 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.
In addition to the Darra Gun Market, you’ll also see the region of Chitral. No word on wether or not Warfighter will eventually have a map in which players break into Osama’s villa and shoot him in the face, but I have to admit that would be extremely awesome. Warfighter drops October 23.
