Talking to gamerzines.com, Battlefield 3’s executive producer said that the game would probably have a code that must be used to play online, but what exactly that code does is unclear.
“I don’t think it’s an online pass, I think it’s our own backend. I’m not sure I want to call our system an online pass,” gamerzines.com was told.
Players who buy the game used will most likely have to pay extra money to get a new code in order to play online multiplayer.
“We want people to at least pay us something to create this because we’re paying for it. It was actually a loss for us to have new players.
“Hopefully people understand why. It’s not to punish people. To us it’s compensation.”
