The next "On the House" game for EA's Origin PC game store has been revealed. The new freebie is World War II shooter Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, which was originally released in 2004. It currently sells for $10, but when it's added to the On the House hub sometime "soon" it can be yours at no charge.
Pacific Assault will replace Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which was free starting in February up until this week. On the House offers one free game at a time, but there is no set schedule for when new titles will replace the existing ones.
Most Wanted is no longer available through the program and Pacific Assault has not been added yet. It should be coming soon, according to EA. We will let you know when it arrives.
While On the House titles are completely free for all Origin users, gamers can also pay $5/month for an Origin Access subscription to get a library of free games (among other perks). The lineup of games in "The Vault" grows on March 22 when Titanfall is released into the library.
GameSpot's Pacific Assault review scored the game an 8.3/10.
"It can be difficult to reconcile how, exactly, such a grim event as World War II could become the context for a fun-filled action game, but it's once again made for an exciting experience in Medal of Honor Pacific Assault," reviewer Greg Kasavin said back in 2004.
After 2012's Medal of Honor Warfighter came up short, EA put the series on hiatus. No new entries in the shooter franchise have been announced, though EA still retains the rights to make more games in the future.
