Battlefield 3 Online Pass?

21 Replies 26,227 Views Created 01-06-2012

I've seen a cheap pre-owned copy of Battlefield 3 in my local store (£15) and was wondering if the game needs an online pass?  If so any ideas how much?

 

Cheers

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Personally i would buy a new copy for around the same price of pre-owned plus pass. 

 

If you read the post below you'll be able to claim a free download of Battlefield 1943 before the june 10th deadline only with new copies.

I normally disagree with buying second hand games but seeming as its BF3 just go for it! You get the game and the online pass, then they want you to rent servers, and now they're introducing Battlefield Premium! I don't like the whole concept of online passes as it is, but when EA want you to pay for servers after saying the online passes where to fund your spot on the servers :S Its messed up man!

Thanks for the replies guys. So, am I right in thinking you have to pa ty for the pass and then a monthly subscription to use / rent a server to play online?

How do the servers cost to play on? Its not looking such a bargain at £15 now

Servers don't currently cost any thing to PLAY on. 

 

Setting up CUSTOM game rooms, Costs money.

This is because each PRIVATE server is an extra server not taking away a Room from Joe public players this time.

 

If you don't care about custom rules, you don't need to pay for a server.  

 

Battlefiled 3 premium, info currently leaked is only a pre pay for DLC service unlike the limited edition that gave you extra content early but cost no extra this time you pre pay to get the DLC early.

BF3 is currently under £24 new at a few online stores so it's not worth paying £15 + £7.99 for the pass.

As said above only renting custom rules private servers cost money. I am in two minds with BF3 myself because my brother-in-law has returned to Bad Company 2 because he prefer's it.

Plenty of DICE and EA servers and there always have been, even when the when the battlelog was full up with custom games you could still find EA servers if you typed "PGRM"

 

You don't need to pay for custom servers just to play in them. You only pay if you want to control the server but anyone is still free to join unless of course you ban them from your server :lol: Rented servers are mainly for people with a God complex and a few people who get them for clan matches/events etc

 

Premium gets you all the DLC slightly cheaper than it would to buy all the DLC individually plus you had access to them an extra week early on top of the week early release for PS3 :D

All the Dice servers had disappeared when I last played a few days ago. All the saved ones in my favourites have gone too. Still plenty of EA servers about though. Just search 'server1' or 'server3' to find them.

Had some really great games lately just by using Quickmatch.  

 

It drops me randomly into maps and servers I wouldn't normally have chosen,  but i've enjoyed the battles i've had there.  Playing just for fun now with my second account,  and its great not bothering if we win or lose,  or which assignments or medals I can complete.  

 

I'd recommend quick match to anyone who just wants a quick team deathmatch game,  especially because it matches you by your skill level,  not rank.  My stats are even worse on my second soldier so I get matched to some nice steady games :)
