you will have to buy the code to play online.

when i rented bfbc2, i had to do this.

this is just their way to get money from rentals.

you dont have to buy the game to play online, the online code you get with the game is just so you can have the other guns, i haven't entered mine yet and been playing. no where did i see you have to pay like those other games.

It looks like you will have to pay the 10 dollars.

Yes, MOH has implemented EA's new Online Pass requirement.

However, according to EA when they released Tiger Woods EVERYGAME will have a "trial" period for online play before you are forced to input your code (free if you purchase a new copy) or pay and download said "pass" from each systems respective store.

I went into the multiplayer menus for MOH and got the pop up etc regarding the online pass and then hit ok and went into quickmatch without a problem. I never actually told it to find a match but I'm sure it would have searched for one without a problem until the trial period was up.

The thing that had me a little pissed about it however was that the put the online pass code in the case...2nd to the BF3 beta flyer AND on the back of an ad for Crysis 2.

I almost threw away the Crysis ad w/o actually flipping it over but slapped it back into the case for some unknown reason. I didn't know MOH was going to require the online pass until I hit the multiplayer menu and started looking for it.

It seems like an underhanded move on their part to put the code out of sight and hope people lose it/throw it away and pay for access they should of had already by purchasing it new. Similar to the issues THQ had when UFC launched and people started throwing away their online pass codes and getting screwed.

I wish i never bought into this fucking EA bullshit. I'll never buy another EA game. That dumb ass label needs to be boycotted like a tea party.

Are you seriously going to charge to play on your shitty servers on top of paying 50-60 a year for the "XBL" experience?!

I would never pay to play this garbage online. You should get a free week or something like that, you'll only play for 3 days though at the most.

I rented it, still able to play online, I know with Madden /NCAA/Tiger Woods, there is a free 7 day trial, I assume the same goes for this as well....

Don't listen to them. You don't have to put no code to play online.

Code is for MP7 and 2 shotguns only.

My friend lend me the game today.

you get a free trial but after that you will have to play to pay.

As far as I know, the code is similar to the VIP code for BFBC2. Everywhere I've read says that the code is only needed if you want a future map pack. I can play online without putting one in. The game has never said that you only get x number of days to try it.

To continue playing online after the trial period you need to either input a legit online pass code included with the game or purchase the $10 online pass digital certificate from XBL Marketplace/PS Store. PC Version I'm sure is probably still code-less but I wouldn't know.

The idiots here posting over and over you need no code obviously didn't read the 2-3 popups that happen when you enter the Multiplayer menus.

Yes you can hope right into multiplayer..but it's for a limited time.

Man you dont have to buy the pass,its for extra guns,sure other ea titles require it,some dont,skate 3 for example,you can play online till your hearts content,but you need to buy a skate 3 "share code" which lets you upload/download parks,videos and stuff like that,theres no trial shite going on,rent it and rinse the singleplayer,cause mp is not that good imo
