EA SPORTS™ expands your quest for glory by fully immersing you in the entire sports experience. Activating your Online Pass gives you full access to online features and multiplayer modes* like Online Team Play and Live Tournaments.
See the instructions and a tutorial video below on how to access Online Pass. Online Pass is available for EA SPORTS games on the Playstation® 3 and Xbox 360.
*Xbox LIVE Gold account also required to access online features.
*EA Account required for Online Pass activation. You can create an EA Account in-game or at EASPORTS.com/register.
*If you don´t have an Online Pass access code or it has already been redeemed, you can purchase a new one for $10 on Sony PlayStation® 3 and 800 Microsoft points on Xbox 360.
The elimination of Online Pass for Sports titles is underway. These are rolling updates across all titles/platforms that are taking effect over the next several weeks
Online Pass was a unique, one-time-use code included in every new EA title that allowed EA players to gain access to the online features of their game. If a player bought a game used, the previous owner had most likely already used the code that was included, and consequently; the player would have had to purchase a new Online Pass.
For all of our new EA games, Online Pass will no longer be needed or included.
For previously-released EA games that required an Online Pass, we are in the process of eliminating it from those games as well. For some games, the prompt to enter an Online Pass code will no longer appear; for others, you will still need to download and install an Online Pass, but they will be available free of charge from your console’s marketplace.
We plan on starting with already-released EA SPORTS games. Over the next several weeks, other EA games will either have their Online Pass requirement "turned off," or will have the cost of Online Passes set to "free" in the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Please note that our advisors will not be able to provide you an Online Pass code before that game's pass requirements are disabled. We appreciate your patience.
We listened to the feedback from players, and decided to do away with Online Pass moving forward. We hope that eliminating Online Pass will allow more people to play and enjoy EA games for a long time to come.
