We have written about it time and again: not everyone can be special warfare operators like the Navy SEALs, and for some, the closest they could get to living the special ops experience is through their computers, Playstations, or Xbox, by playing simulations of real-life military missions and challenges.
EA Games delivers such an experience, with games like Medal of Honor. This year, the company is releasing a successor to Medal of Honor’s 2010 release – Medal of Honor Warfighter. The game, according to GeekOSystem.com, is currently in development. Its goal is “to deliver a realistic military experience combined with numerous connections to the real world,” and players will get to travel the globe and participate in modern military operations.
Medal of Honor Warfighter will also have a special Military Edition, to be released only to members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Military Edition will be available through GovX, a website exclusive to the Armed Forces.
The Medal of Honor: Warfighter – Military Edition is also connected to Project Honor, a program that hopes to raise awareness and funding for the fallen warriors of the Special Operations Community.
G4TV.com shared that EA has struck partnerships with elite weapon and gear manufacturers that work with the Special Operations Community, such as Magpul and Surefire. The partnerships include an agreement where companies whose products will be featured in Medal of Honor: Warfighter will make donations to organizations that support Special Operations personnel, such as the Navy SEALs Foundation and the Special Warrior Foundation. The companies may also sell exclusive Medal of Honor-themed merchandise, and all the proceeds will be donated back to charities that serve the special operations community.
