EA launches ‘Project HONOR’ and Medal of Honor: Warfighter Military Edition
Project HONOR is an initiative that is dedicated to generating awareness and contributions to charity for fallen warriors from the Special Operations Community in honour of the sacrifices made by them and their families.
Manufacturers, such as Mechanix Wear and Kaenon, who provide gear and weapons for those who are part of the Special Operations Community will be donating to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Navy SEAL Foundation through Project HONOR and to create a more realistic gaming experience, these manufacturers and many others will be having their products featured in Medal of Honor: Warfighter when it comes out later this year.
In addition to this, several manufacturers have signed up to create Medal of Honor merchandise where 100% of the proceeds made will go to both charities mentioned above as well as several others.
There will also be another special edition of the game that has been announced by Danger Close which has been dubbed the Medal of Honor: Warfighter Military Edition, made exclusively for those who are or have been active, reserve or retired from the U.S. military.
Due to the target market for this edition of the game, the only store that will be providing it is GovX Inc., the largest shop exclusive to those who are verified military, law enforcement, other government personnel and to the family members of any of those who serve in this line of work. The Military Edition will include the Limited Edition version of the game as well as more exclusive in-game unlocks such as Project HONOR camouflage patterns. If any of our readers are interested in purchasing this or want to know more, please visit http://www.govx.com/mohw.
I personally hope that a great number of donations are made as it can be really beneficial to those that the charities are aimed at as well as their families.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be available in North America on October 23rd 2012, EU on the 25th, and in the UK on the 26th and is written by U.S. Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas and is inspired by true events to create a realistic, authentic gaming experience and I’ll definitely be picking it up as I loved the reboot.
