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.”

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! – What do you think about online passes like this? Fair or unfair?
