The lights are on
Electronic Arts has announced that it will donate at least $1 million to veterans' charities through sales of the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter Zero Dark Thirty map pack. The move is being made in conjunction with the Zero Dark Thirty film (directed by Kathryn Bigelow who did The Hurt Locker), which is about the special forces mission to get Osama bin Laden.
EA says that it will give $1 for each map pack sold, with the donations split among the participating nonprofit organizations.
The map pack contains two new multiplayer maps based on real-world locations: The Darra Gun Market in Pakistan and Chitral in northern Afghanistan.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter comes out for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 23. Here's the latest trailer.

This is the best news I've heard all week. Way to go EA.
well at least they are donating some sort of proceeds. Which is rare
Bout time ea does something good.
Honestly, if you want to help your vets, you should take those $15 or $10 and donate them directly to them. Great to see EA finally doing some good, though.
I think this is great as long as EA doesn't charge more to compensate for the donation. For 2 maps I would hope it's around $5 but no more than $10.
That's a lot of dough.
