EA releases second Pacific Assault MP demo

Featuring an exclusive map that doesn't even come with the boxed version. So, er, does it still count as a demo?

EA has released a second multiplayer demo of Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, and, assuming you can navigate through the intolerably minute text on the publisher's website, you can download it from one of these mirrors. It's [holds arms out as far as they go] this big! (Also: 408.75MB.)

What's in it, you ask? Fortunately EA's website also gives us "the skinny" on that - it consists of the map from the first multiplayer demo, Gifu, along with a brand new map called Corregidor that isn't even included in the retail version of the game and works using the "Invader" game type.

"Corregidor is a small rocky island in the Philippines about 48 kilometers west of Manila which is strategically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. Also known as 'the Rock,' it was a key bastion of the Allies during the war. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in December 1941, the military force under the command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur carried out a delaying action at Bataan," EA tells us.

"Corregidor became the headquarters of the Allied forces and also the seat of the Philippine Commonwealth government. It was from Corregidor that Philippine President Manuel Quezon and General MacArthur left for Australia in February 1942, leaving behind Lt. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright in command."

And there endeth the lesson. For details on your objectives and of course those download links, visit EA's website. And for Pete's sake buy Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault if you're bored; it's actually surprisingly good.
