EA has decided to stop putting its games’ online content behind a paywall by putting an end to its anti-used game policy known as Online Pass. The Online Passes ensured only first time game purchasers enjoyed feature like multiplayer or DLC for free, with players buying used games having to purchase features separately.
“Yes, we’re discontinuing Online Pass,” EA’s John Reseburg told GamesBeat. “None of our new EA titles will include that feature.”
“Initially launched as an effort to package a full menu of online content and services, many players didn’t respond to the format. We’ve listened to the feedback and decided to do away with it moving forward.”
