List of Origin's On the House games

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

As of July 30th 2018 Origins On the House games will no longer be supported.[citation needed]

This is a list of video games and downloadable content provided through Origin's On the House service, which are offered free to Origin users. Games are listed as "On the House" for a specified amount of time. During this time period Origin marks them as 100% off and are free of charge, and players are allowed to keep them forever.[1]

On July 25th, 2018, Electronic Arts 'quietly' removed the 'On the House' page and redirected it to 'Origin Access' subscription.[2] An Electronic Arts spokesman confirmed that "Origin On the House has been retired and games will no longer be offered through the program. This change won’t affect any games players downloaded from the service prior to that date — those are theirs to keep forever."[3]
