Battlefield 4: China Rising DLC Blocked When Upgrading from Current to Next Gen Consoles
Bad news if you bought the DLC on current gen and attempted to activate it on next-gen.
Battlefield 4 is facing troubles yet again. According to an EA user and a NeoGAF user, if you pick up the China Rising DLC for a current-gen copy and then upgrade to a next-gen console, you won’t be able to download the DLC.
EA user buckethead232 stated that, “I bought BF4 for my PS3, I waited to redeem my download code until after the PS4 came out and I utilized the 10 dollar upgrade to the PS4 version. I go to download China Rising Today and it wont let me download for free. Start an advisor chat and EA has evidently decided this afternoon that if you took this path to upgrade your game you are out of luck and have to pay 14.99 or buy Premium to get it.”
He then spoke to EA customer support, who allegedly stated that “There are two conditions of getting the China Rising Expansion. 1-Customers should have pre-ordered Battlefield 4 for their Next Gen Console at full retail price… OR… 2- Customers should have purchased Battlefield 4 Premium for either their Gen 3 or Gen 4 Console.”
Meanwhile, NeoGAF user TheVanillaGorilla stated that EA offered a 15 percent voucher “as a token of appreciation”, what with all the trouble they’ve been through. “I can’t support that. Bye bye BF4,” he stated.
